Family

Once a month throughout the year we meet up to do a family event for about an hour that are geared to children in elementary grades and their parents or grandparents or guardians (but their younger or older siblings are welcome to join as well).

We are a group of people that want to fellowship together, have lots of fun playing games and going to different places depending on the season. Each event includes a fun object lessons shared by Mrs. Emily. Plus the parents and grandparents of the elementary children get to build friendships and support each other as well at the events. Last but not least, we always have amazing snacks (please let us know of any dietary restrictions ahead of time).

Can’t wait to hear from you to let us know you will be joining our upcoming event. Contact Mrs. Emily at emily.knoxmano@gmail.com   to sign up or with any questions.

Sunday, December 11

Our last Knox Craft Kids of 2022 was moved to Sunday, December 11!

We had such a fun time spelling different words that describe the crazy season of Christmas and the real true meaning of Christmas during the children’s time in the church service.

Then we had fun singing “Christmas is a Time to Love” that we will be performing next Sunday! Plus “Little Drummer Boy” that will be performed on Christmas Eve at 4 pm!

Then Jen led us in homemade card making! Wow, you children are really creative and make beautiful cards!

We finished off the event with hot chocolate and gingerbread house building! A big thank you to the helpers for helping us children in keeping our house up right!

Saturday, November 26

On Saturday November 26, we were preparing for Advent. We had Leslie lead us in a game and devotional about waiting and preparing for Christmas day and Christ’s birth and second coming.  Then we sang a few songs, make bookmarks for seniors in the church and ourselves, and got to decorate and eat sugar cookies and some strawberries!

 

 

Saturday, October 29

We all had a wonderful time at the costume party for the family event! We enjoyed painting pumpkins and coloring. Mrs. Emily shared that God is with us and fear not during this scary season of Halloween.

Then it was snack time to decorate and eat the pumpkin and apple shaped sugar cookies.

We ended the event with bobbing for apples and the bean toss.

Hope you can join us for the next event in November!

 

 

 

Water Games Family Event – August 2022

 

We enjoyed playing different relay games with water, mini shovels, soap, and pool noodles.

 

Mrs. Emily share a short devotional about clean and dirty water and how that relates to sin in our life and God can only clean us fully.

 

We had cookies,  juice, and fruit but the adults only ate the fruit. The event ended with a water balloon and water soaker game to make sure everyone got wet before they left😁!
