What CPC Kids will be learning this month, Sundays at 10:30am |  PreK to K: “3-2-1 Freeze!” We all know that preschool kids are filled with the wiggles. But instead of fighting it, we’re inviting it! During “3, 2, 1…Freeze!” the preschool kids will put the true Bible story into motion before freezing in place. Each time the wiggle worms come to a halt, they’ll discover another piece of the story. It’s an action-packed way for preschoolers to learn about the early church and to discover they can be an active part of a community of believers. Grades 1st to 5th: “The Big Build” Think about some of the most popular toys ever — Legos®, Lincoln Logs®, Building Blocks. These are classic and timeless toys! Why? Because people have always enjoyed building things. During “The Big Build” series, kids will have a chance to put their building skills to use while they hear stories about how God used ordinary people to build the early Church.
