Graaff-Reinet Advertiser - - Skole | Schools -

GRAAFF-REI­NET — The As­sem­bly C­hurch in Graaff-rei­net ran t­heir an­nu­al Ho­li­day Club pro­gram­me last week, and it was a hu­ge success!

T­hey we­re ex­pecting this to be t­heir big­ge­st Ho­li­day Club so far, and it cer­tain­ly was.

T­hey ha­ve gro­wn from 79 child­ren at­ten­ding the first Ho­li­day Club in 2015, to 103 child­ren last y­e­ar, to this y­e­ar w­he­re t­hey had an in­cre­di­ble 159 child­ren from Gra­de R to Gra­de 7 at­ten­ding the pro­gram­me.

This y­e­ar’s the­me for Ho­li­day Club was ba­sed on the D­re­am­works a­ni­ma­ted mo­vie, Ho­me.

Through mo­vie clips, wors­hip, lar­ge-group te­a­ching, small groups, ga­mes, and out­door acti­vi­ties, the child­ren we­re en­coura­ged to trust God in t­heir li­ves.

E­ach day had a brief and me­mo­ra­ble point that child­ren we­re left with, which in­clu­ded, “You are not al­o­ne”, “You are u­ni­que”, “Lo­ve e­ach ot­her”, and “Fa­mi­ly mat­ters”.

As we ha­ve co­me to ex­pect, the Ho­li­day Club pro­gram­me was car­ried out with a high le­vel of ex­cel­len­ce, at­ten­ti­on to de­tail, and in­clu­si­vi­ty.

Do­lan and Sa­ra Co­chra­ne, the le­ad pas­tors of The As­sem­bly C­hurch, would li­ke to ex­tend a pu­blic and he­art­felt “thank you” to the NG Groot­kerk for the use of the Te Wa­ter Saal, as well as to La­er Volk­skool for al­lo­wing them the use of t­heir sports fields a­gain this y­e­ar.

T­hey al­so ex­pres­sed t­heir sin­ce­re gra­ti­tu­de to­wards the pa­rents of the child­ren that at­ten­ded this y­e­ar’s Ho­li­day Club for t­heir gro­wing con­fi­den­ce and trust in the le­a­ders and vo­lun­teers that ser­ved t­heir child­ren last week.

For tho­se pa­rents that are look­ing for a pla­ce for t­heir p­ri­ma­ry school child­ren to ha­ve fun, ma­ke f­riends, and learn a­bout God, The As­sem­bly C­hurch of­fers a gre­at pro­gram­me, cal­led Ig­ni­te for Gra­de 5 to 7 child­ren.

The pro­gram­me is run at the c­hurch from 15:00 to 17:00 on F­ri­day af­ter­noons du­ring the school term.

On Sun­day mor­nings t­hey ha­ve As­sem­bly Kids, which is well-run “kids c­hurch” for child­ren from 3-y­e­ars-old up to Gra­de 7.
