Summer Memory Madness
On Wednesday evenings during the summer, our congregation has been providing a program for children ages 4 - 6th grade called Summer Memory Madness. My understanding is that they have been doing this for 11 years now. The theme this year is Called to Action and the the goal is for the children to hide God's word in their hearts. Memory verses have been selected to go along with theme and the children learn these verses each week. There are learning, craft and game stations set up and the children can go to the ones they are interested in but must go to at least three of the stations and the station that teaches the new verse. The children are learning the verses and are having fun too. I have been helping and having fun along with the children - plus I am learning the memory verses too!
