Dear Parents of KidPower! Kids
Thank you for allowing us to teach your children this year. We greatly enjoy getting to know them and helping them get to know God and his Holy Word better. Coming to KidPower! and saying their verses will earn your child half of the possible fun awards and prizes we offer. To earn the maximum possible awards, they must memorize their verse outside of KidPower! and be ready to say it without review when they arrive at KidPower!. This will also help class to run smoother, allowing more time for fun activities.
We are excited to announce that camp scholarships are available again this year. We hope this will encourage your kids to say their verses and to go to a local Christian summer camp. It can be a life-changing time in a kid's life.
We believe that memorizing God's Word is one of the most important things we can do to draw nearer to God. Psalm 119:11 says, “I have hidden Your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You.” While it is good for the students to read the verse in class and recite it back to us, it will remain in their hearts far longer if they actually take the time to study and memorize the verse. That is why we strongly encourage you as parents to work with your student throughout each week to study and memorize each verse. Each verse is worth two points: one for saying the verse, and one only if they know the verse without review before class starts. We will use the total of these points to award a wide variety of prizes and rewards throughout the year.
We have dinner at 5:15, singing time with the other clubs at 6:00, followed by verse time, game time, Bible lesson time, and occasional craft, trivia and other fun times. New this year, we have a new, earlier ending time. Please pick up your student in their classroom promptly at 7:30pm.
We look forward to a great year. If you have any comments, concerns, suggestions or questions, please contact Jon or Amanda Wiles at 503-637-3663.
