KidZone: Special Edition

SUPER SUNDAY NIGHTS FOR KIDZ

The Lord has open up an opportunity for us to do a great ministry in Pleasant Grove and the surrounding area. This has the potential to be something BIG. 
On Sept 17th, we will begin KID ZONE: SPECIAL EDITION from 5:30-7:30 every Sunday night. 
We will pick kids up in PG, Adamsville, Sylvan Springs and Hueytown. 
It will be an evening just for kids with Sports Activities, Free Food, Music, Drama, Worship and Small Groups. We're planning to pack out the KidZone Worship Center. Every child, Kindergarten through 6th grade, is invited to participate. Our first goal is to top 100 children in attendance. 
We are in the process of enlisting Small Group leaders. Would you be interested in helping? Let's talk about it. Read the Comments below for more info. 
(We will have a 'soft start' on 9/10 without running the buses.)
