Summer is here in Surf City, our Kids Community! We had an amazing school year full of lots of kids saying “yes” to Jesus and living out what that means, high-energy worship time, fun activities, cool God stories, and lots of laughter. It’s been a joy being a part of all our Watermark kids’ lives this past year. None of this would have been possible without our team of volunteers who are committed to investing in each child’s life as they serve week after week. A huge “Thank You” goes out to each of them for giving their time and energy to love and teach each of the kids.
I’d also love to thank and encourage each of our Surf City parents who are continually loving God and being an example to their kids as they grow up. It is said that a spiritual foundation is built in a child’s life before the age of nine. Whatever is being said and done at home in a child’s younger years is more important than some may realize. Deuteronomy 6:5-7 is a great reminder…
“And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up.”
– Deuteronomy 6:5-7
Surf City is going to be in full action all summer long on Sunday mornings. We will continue learning and growing and having lots of fun. We will also be meeting on Thursdays this summer for Park Days at Pottawattomie Park on Comstock Road in Grand Haven: July 23rd, August 6th and August 20th from 9:30am – Noon. Bring the kids, and let them play and meet someone new! We will have a lot of fun with games, activities, and yummy snacks. We ask that all kids are accompanied by an adult on Park Days.
If it happens to rain one of these mornings, check the Surf City Parents Facebook page for information on time or location changes. If you are not a part of the Facebook page, please let me know so I can get you connected.
I am looking forward to hanging out with our Surf City families at the Park Days this summer!
