As you have heard, KidsRock Club will be starting up on September 18th. A year and a half ago, we were invited by Travis Elementary to come in and run this club. We were very excited and we put together a team very quickly. Our club that first semester had about 50 children. We built great relationships and shared the gospel with children and their families.
Last year 112 children signed up! We panicked, had to buy alot more snacks, but we ended up getting through it. We had more children signing up almost every week throughout the year, and by the end of the year our weekly attendance was between 130 and 150 kids (with 180 signed up).
Our volunteers are such a huge part of KidsRock Club. We put volunteers in groups to be group leaders and to get to know the kids in that specific group. There have been some great relationships built between leaders and children in this way. These kids have someone they look up to that are setting an example of what it looks like to follow Jesus.
If you are interested in helping, we are having our first volunteer meeting tomorrow (Wednesday, the 11th) at my house at 2:30. Even if you aren’t sure you want to help, please come and talk to us about it. Hear some about what we are planning for this year and see if you want to join us. The time commitment for the program is from 2:00-4:30 every Wednesday afternoon.
If you have questions or need the address, please email me at Ryan@river-stone.org.
