Add a Pre-Prix to Your Grand Prix

 

What’s a Pre-Prix you ask?

That’s when you buy some unfinished wood cars, set up a train track, and make an area for pre-clubbers to push the cars around the track and have their own racing area!

Barb, our Cubbie director, created this special event, brought a cup full of markers and added tons of fun to our Grand Prix race.  Giving the littles something fun to do while the bigs raced their cars was brilliant.

Hope your Grand Prix is a success this year!

Scripture Writing Plans

december-scripture-writing-plan

Here’s a great resource that provides a challenge:  Scripture Writing Plans, one for each month.

On the Sweet Blessings website you’re encouraged to spend a few minutes a day focusing on God’s word just by copying down a verse.  This can be helpful for your clubber or for yourself.

On Shannon’s blog you’ll also find scripture printables.  Check out the many things she has to offer and immerse yourself in God’s Word!

 

 

The Pumpkin Gospel

I found this gem on Pinterest: the Pumpkin Gospel.

It’s a fun presentation for large group time with a message that your clubbers will remember: God creates us, cares for us, removes our sin and makes us a new creation; now let your light shine for Him.

You can include a few questions to small group leaders for futher discussion.
