Congratulations to the First Central Bible Church Softball team. They ended the season in a three-way tie for first, swept the first round of the playoffs, and made it to the league championship last night. Unfortunately, they came out on the wrong end of the score, but that did not diminish a great season. The team did well and the fans of all ages supported them with enthusiasm.

Our youngest daughter lives in Christchurch, New Zealand, which has recently experienced quite a bit of rain and flooding. She sent us a link of a photographer who decided to have some fun in the rain. Christchurch photographer Sarah Webber’s photoshopped flood pictures are very creative and fun.
Here’s a brief snapshot of what took place this week at Camp KidConnect 2017, the summer children’s ministry of First Central Bible Church in Chicopee, MA. It was a wonderful time where God was at work through the games, songs, Bible lessons, crafts, missionary stories, and making friends.
Camp KidConnect 2017 is the summer children’s ministry of First Central Bible Church in Chicopee, MA. Each day during the week, the kids gave an offering which was placed in “Johnny-Tithe”, our offering bot. This years’ offering is going to the Springfield Pregnancy Care Center. (Since the first days Bible lesson was “God made you” and the emphasis during the week was that God made us for a purpose, it was a natural tie-in.) The kids (and their families) were extremely generous–$540 was raised for the ministry. (The reveal says $535, but someone gave another $5 afterwards to up the total to $540.)
At the beginning of the week, the kids were told that for every $20 raised, one leader would get a pie in the face. As you can see, we had no shortage of leaders who were good sports and willing to take one for the kids.
Today’s Spotlight Slideshow from Camp KidConnect 2017 featured our preschoolers. Needless to say, the cuteness factor was off the charts.
Today was the closing day for Camp KidConnect 2017, the summer children’s ministry of First Central Bible Church in Chicopee, MA. It was another wonderful day of fun, games, songs, Bible lessons, crafts, and missionary stories. Several parents said their kids wished it would continue. One mom said her kids wished it was every day all year round. I’m not sure our leaders would be up for that, but it was an encouraging affirmation to hear. Here are the highlights from the days activities.
