Kidspiration is part of our Sunday School program for children in 6th grade and younger. Each quarter, we have a theme that includes a new set, different characters and skits that deliver a Biblical message.
Kidspiration is a program designed to create excitement for our children as the learn the stories of the Bible. Characters such as Bart the Builder or Mr. Rogers act out skits and include lessons from Bible characters such as Moses, David, or Jesus. We hope that these lessons will be memorable for our children as they grow up to become working Christians in the church. Each week is a new adventure through the Bible!
The theme for our Fall quarter is “3 Guys’ General Store” and we will be studying Heroes of the Old Testament. Three brothers, Larry, Harry, and Barry own a general store that is connected to their house. Their grandmother, Mary (aka Granny) lives with them in the house. Their father, Gary, also makes occasional appearances. Each week, customers come to the store looking for a particular item. The General Store ALWAYS has what people need. Not only that, the item leads to a story about a Hero in the Bible. So, at the General Store, people get what they need and a lesson from the Bible.
This week (October 22) Harry, Barry, and Larry will talk about the story of Esther. This is another story where Esther made a choice to help God’s people even though she would be in GREAT danger! Each week we will introduce a bible hero, talk about the memory verse and have some fun activities that relate to the stories we will study. Come back each week to see what bible story we learn from Larry, Harry and Barry.
Our memory verse for the quarter is Hebrews 10:39
“But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.”

The Spring quarter theme was “Redeemable Me” where the girls convinced Gru that he needed to be a good guy rather than a super villain. We learned that Jesus can change lives! Click on the Spring 2017 link below to view the quarterly wrap-up.
