Sixth Grade Club
We have two major lines of Bible study, one for Sundays and one for Wednesdays.
- On Wednesdays we study the book of Ecclesiastes and the life of King Solomon. We undertook each and very aspect that King Solomon thought worthy in the life of men, and concluded with stance that a life outside God’s plan and direction is not a life worth living.
On Sundays we have been covering the basic concepts of Christian doctrine, such as salvation, faith, forgiveness, and love. Our classes have a dynamic structure with small videos, power point presentations and a set of visual examples that aid in the understanding and application of the Bible in our lives. We have discovered that some of the biblical concepts we thought we knew actually possess a much deeper meaning, and are more important than we thought. We are more knowledgeable of God’s personality and our relationship with Him.
The Sixth Grade Club has gone on several fieldtrips. In our first fieldtrip, we visited the Los Angeles County Fair and took so many pictures, that it required us to put up our own website! A big thanks to Susan Little for helping us develop and launch our own website. Take a peek and see how much fun we’ve been having at http://creektothe6thpower.shutterfly.com/.
In October we visited a corn maize in Temecula and had a blast! The days was filled with getting lost in the corn maize, playing a variety of games, face painting, and much more. Some kids rode the ponies, others jumped in the bouncing house, others played and buried themselves in a huge container filled with dried corn kernels. It was a day to remember!
We also attended the Histio-Walk in Burbank, where we supported the families with children who have histiocytosis. We helped in the booths by running the games and distributing water to the walkers. We also walked to show support and raise funds for the affected families.
Last month we visited Lorrie’s Pet Grooming. We thank Kathy Donahue, owner of Lorrie’s Pet Grooming for teaching us about different ways to care for pets. We learned how to prevent sickness and ways to cure some basic illnesses. We also learned some of the needs that pets have and how to better care for them. We visited the rescue center, where they have some pets for adoption.
Finally, we participated in a laser tag adventure at Laser Island. We thank Doug Hornecker for the experience. Playing together strengthened our bonds with each other as we defended our base with laser guns.
We look forward to an extraordinary year in 2011! We are planning a winter camp and plenty more field trips and activities to enhance our perspective on life and to encourage Christian growth.
