Washed in God's Goodness At Home Kits 

Water is really important to our daily living, and today more than ever. Water does a lot of different things: cleans, refreshes, nurtures life, and heals. With all the handwashing I've been doing these days, it has me thinking about all of the stories in the Bible about water. In the Washed in God's Goodness At Home Kit, you preschool and elementary children will get a chance to explore 5 of these water themed Bible stories. Each family will get a packet with an overview of the kit, stories, and both preschool and elementary activity instructions. You will also receive the supplies needed for each of the campers you register. 

This kit is great because you can do as much or as little of it as you want. You can use this kit over the course of a week or throughout the summer. It even has all of the supplies included, with the exception of items one would find around their home. The elementary activities were designed for children to mostly do on their own but can also do with family involvment. The preschoolers will need help with all of their acitivites. 

Families are encourgaged to participate in the Family Service Project by making cards for Mercy Care Clinic in Atlanta. This is a organization providing healthcare and COVID testing to persons experiencing homeless. The cards are for the clinicians who are working hard each day for so many. We want to send words of encouragement and support. More information will be in the packet. 

Registration will end on June 2nd to allow volunteers to assemble kits. Kits will be available for drive-thru pick up or delivery the week of June 7th. Please make sure to note in the registration which way you prefer to receive your kit. More details about picking up or delivery will come closer to the week of June 7th. 

We hope that you will dive into the Bible with us as we are reminded that no matter what is going on around us, we are always washed in God's goodness. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Emily Wilmesherr, ewilmesherr@dpchurch.org

Here is the week at a glance to see what stories will be included in the kit.
