As the leader of the kids team I am completely humbled and blown away with the success of the first year kids program. It was incredible to not only see the number of kids in attendance but to also work with such a dedicated and hardworking kids team. Each day we were able to watch the kids lineup, signup, bringing their smiling faces ready to participate in creative stations, engaging teaching and interactive worship. Their excitement was contagious!
Numerous times we were approached by parents that were appreciative that they had the option, twice daily to attend a session knowing that their kids would be having a positive experience as well. Paper mache was a mess. paint everywhere, and rainsticks took forever to make, but beneath the details kids walked away feeling loved, filled with creativity and pride. We’re looking forward to Wild Goose Festival 2012!
