This is Power Up!
September 28th Kick-Off!
Full Family Fun event to jump start the year!
Power UP! is Hillside’s mid-week program for kids in preK (entering Kindergarten during the following September) through Grade 5! It is high-energy fun mixed with teaching time and small group time on Wednesday nights from 6:15-7:30pm!
Children are asked to “Sign-in” in the upstairs lobby and then proceed into the Auditorium where they will be greeted by their Small Group Leaders and given a name tag. Children are in colour groups by age and gender to allow for safety and security. Kids are first engaged in a high energy large group time of worship where they sing and dance to songs they know and love! Children then engage in dynamic teaching time related to a BIG IDEA or value such as Peace, Patience, Kindness, Honesty, Compassion and many more each month!
After large group prayer time, children travel to their classrooms where they are involved in activities and games which help to engage them in applying the BIG IDEA and Biblical principles related to it into their every day lives so they can make wise choices!
Kids are encouraged to cultivate relationships with other kids their age and their Small Group Leaders. Growing these Christian friendships will encourage kids to seek each other out in other areas of their lives whether at basketball practice, school, summer camp and even in their neighbourhoods helping connect them to each other for life!
Each week we encourage kids to bring their friends and on the last Wednesday night of each month, we have a theme night where kids get to do wild and wacky things during large group and game time! We wrap up the month long look at a BIG IDEA and have a lot of fun doing it! Kids can bring their friends and have the best hour+ of their week!
