Children’s weekend away

35 children from the Explorers and Fire Tribe groups spent a weekend together at Smallwood Manor.  For some, it was their first weekend away from home; for others, it was a chance to spend more time with their friends from church.

The weekend was full of games, drama, scavenger hunts, worship, prayer, and teaching and discussion around Riverside’s “Going Viral” theme. We looked at who we need to BE in Jesus, and how we live that out in what we SAY and DO. A particular highlight was the swimming session, playing with inflatables and being able to jump and dive in the school pool.

During the weekend many children grew closer to God and formed deeper friendships with each other. The awesome team of leaders spent time talking to and encouraging the kids in their faith.  Parents, your children are a credit to you!
