Fall Fest scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 13
Heroes Unmasked is a fall fest featuring carnival games, prizes, candy, cookie decorating, face painting, crafts, and Bible heroes! Join us at 9:30 a.m., Sept. 13.
Daniel will be the host of Daniel’s “Mane Showdown” and Daniel’s “Who’s-the-Boss Football Toss” games. You’ll depart Daniel’s area with a mini football, a finger rocket, and a Daniel trading card! You can read about Daniel in the Old Testament book of Daniel, especially chapter 6:1-24.
Elijah has two of the most fun games! At Elijah’s “Bucket Bull’s-Eye,” you’ll win an Elijah trading card. At Elijah’s “Screaming, Flaming Chicken Race” (?!), you’ll win a red-hot candy. You can read about Elijah in 1 Kings 18:16-40.
David will host the Goliath Slingshot game. Guest will slingshot soft “rocks” at the nine-foot tall and grumpy Goliath.
David’s area also features David’s “Bopple Topple.” Can you knock down some of the other Philistine soldiers with a bean-bag? Of course, you’ll receive a prize and a trading card in this area too! You can read about David in 1 Samuel 17:20-50.
In Moses’ area, try Moses’ “Red Sea Putt-Putt” as well as Moses’ “Red Sea Sweep.” Guests will use brooms to sweep balls across a line. The “winner” is the person who is able to sweep the most balls into his or her opponent’s side. Both competitors will win a Moses trading card. Moses’ story will be the focus of our worship services beginning Aug. 23. You can find part of his story in Exodus 14:1-31.
Noah will host Noah’s “Cookie Count.” Guess how many animal crack-ers are found in a giant container of animal crackers. The grand prize winner will receive the container of animal crackers later in the week. Noah’s second game is Noah’s “Feeding Frenzy Penny Drop.” From shoulder height, drop coins into a tiny cup at the bottom of a fish bowl. You can read about No-ah in Genesis 6:9--7:16.
Esther hosts a face painting station and a crown crafting station. She also has a trading card. Her story can be found in the book of Esther. Read chapter 4:4-17.
Of course, the ultimate hero of the Bible is Jesus! You can collect the Jesus trading card during worship, as Pastor Tom presents a special children’s sermon.
A new sermon series begins August 23 | 8:15 and 10:45 in-person, 9:30 online
