Bowling Fun : )

Summertime is officially here, and to celebrate that, we went bowling! This was Parkway's first children's event of the summer. We had a lot of fun! On Wednesday, the younger kids went bowling. They really surprised me with their bowling talents. On Thursday, the older kids went. We had 18 kids show up Thursday, so I was really excited. I was able to capture a few pictures  from Wednesday, but my camera died after one picture on Thursday.

This Thursday, we are going to the Museum of Natural Science in Jackson. I am really excited.

Next week will be a busy one! I am leaving on Sunday with the 3rd through 6th graders to go to Centri- Kid at Mississippi College in Clinton. We are very ready to go!!! The same week, the pre-K through 2nd graders will have Day Camp at the church. We have a lot of fun planned for Day Camp, so if you have a preker through 2nd grade student, sign them up! It only cost $25!!! It's a Monday through Thursday camp and it's from 9-12 in the youth center!!You can call the Parkway office to register for camp!

I think that is all of the updates I have for now, so here are a few pictures from our bowling trip! Enjoy!

Upcoming Events for Kids at PBC

This Saturday, April 10th (tomorrow), we will have Parent's Night Out from 5:30 - 7:30 in the youth center. It is free, but donations are accepted for the youth. Tomorrow's dinner will include chicken tenders, french fries, cookies, and cool aid!

On Saturday, April 17th, our AWANA girls will sponsor a Mother - Daughter brunch at in the church's youth center. The girls will present a short program in honor of their mothers and a brunch will be served. Our special entertainment will be a fruit carving session, where we will learn how to make an edible arrangement.

This summer will be a busy one for me! I have a lot planned for the kids at church.

On June 2, I will take the 1-3 grades on a bowling trip to Rivergate Bowl. The 4-6 grades will go on June 3.

On June 10, I will take 1-6 on a day trip to the Museum of Natural Science in Jackson, MS.  I really like this museum so I hope that it will be a good trip!!

I am really excited about June 13- 17th because I will get to attend Centri - Kid this year. That same week, the youth will be gone to Student Life Camp and the little kids will be having day camp at the church. It will be busy, but FUN week for everyone!!

On June 26, we will have a BYBC at an apartment complex in Natchez. Last year, we had about 75 kids come to that one so I am excited to see how many come this year! If there is a need, we will plan more events for this complex throughout the summer.

On July 1, the 1-3 grades will come hang out for lunch and games at (hopefully) the newly renovated Oasis (in the church). The 4-6 grade will do the same on July 6.

On July 8, I will take the 1-6 grades to the Louisiana Children's Museum in New Orleans, LA! I haven't been to this museum before but it looks like a lot of fun!!

Last July, I decided that our youth needed an opportunity to see "the other side" of Natchez so after talking with several people in our church and with the youth minister, I started a Youth Missions Week. Last summer, the youth served lunch at the stewpot, worked at the Natchez Children's Home, and did yard work for some of our shut-ins at our church. The youth really enjoyed the week and so did the community. Therefore, this will be something that I will continue this summer. I haven't planned this summer's week so if you have any ideas, I am all ears! The YMW will be July 12 - 16.

July 19- 23 is my last week of summer since teachers have to go back to school the last week of July. I have a BYBC planned this entire week for the community around our church. This will be our "bible school." I just started looking at some curriculum and I am very excited about the possibilities this week will bring!!!

To wrap up the summer, we will host a back to school swimming party on August 1.

I have a lot planned this summer and I hope I survive!!
