It is a commonly known fact among children’s pastors that sooner or later you are going to end up with pie in your face. If not figuratively, then literally!
Sunday was a super fun day in Kid’s Church! Our Virtue of the Month for January was “Resourcefulness” defined as “Using what you have to get the job done.” We decided to spend the month planning a ‘block party’ in Kids Church, but not spending money – using what we had to get the job done. The room was filled with fun games that were all fun but simple games using stuff from around the house. Shooting straws at targets, paper airplanes, rubber bands and Styrofoam cups, etc. Even bowling with a hamster in his hamster ball. (download video!)
But the kids favorite, of course, was “Throwing a Pie at Pastor Karl!” In order to get throw at pie at their beloved pastor, they had to get a ‘Pie Throwing Ticket’ by bringing something to the block party – food, decorations, games, etc. It was a messy, but lots of fun:
