Ark-La-Tex Campmeeting

Story Time at Ark-La-Tex Campmeeting: From Kid’s Ministry

Ark-La-Tex Campmeeting was a blast! We traveled 1,000 miles one way from Valentine, Nebraska to Jefferson, TX to lead the junior division for a bunch of wonderful kids. We transformed the chapel of Jefferson Academy into a super secret science lab where “Dr. N” had the juniors help with his top secret project–the Simon LX 2007! Access to the lab was controlled with a high-tech system, created especially for this event, complete with real badges (available for free to churches here).

The kids formed research teams that found Bible answers to life questions through scientific experiments such as black light, codes, micro-print, presser sensitivity and, of course, the Simon LX 2007 machine.

Of course it was not all scientific research we also had great singing (a campmeeting must) memory verse games, a water fight to end all water fights and the ever popular story time!

Simon LX 2007 also transported a roman soldier (played by Dr. Dick Stenbakken) from the 1st century AD to our lab where he explained how his armor is like the armor of God. after successfully transporting him back we set to making our own roman armor made to scale from authentic patterns (we used poster board instead of metal though).

The kids really loved the program and we have been invited back next year (we haven’t accepted yet, we’ll see).
Here’s some picts!
