There is a new app based on Bible Heroes.  It is Adventist produced.  The Title is Heroes.  You can find it with a search for Heroes the Game.  It is a free download.  They also have a FB page by the same name.  https://itunes.apple.com/app/id630242375

I have posted a copy (two actually) of my Family Worship Resource list.  You can find it at http://www.floridaconference.com/iym/childrenandfamily/free-resources/  This is information only, not part of the lending library.   It is in pdf format and also Excel so you can change the order.

Go Fish For Kids may be coming to your area soon!  We will be at

St. Petersburg Church, Oct. 5, 9 AM – 4PM

Naples Church and School, Oct. 6, 9 AM – 4 PM

This is my favorite of the year.  Bring your kids ages 5-14.  They will learn how to introduce their friends and neighbors to Jesus using music, puppetry, face painting, ballooning, and nature.  If you are close to one of these locations, bring your kids.  They must be at least 5.  The event is FREE!  You can find the registration form at http://www.floridaconference.com/iym/childrenandfamily/events/

Friends,

Another week has gone by so quickly.  I was at the Adventurer, Pathfinder Convention on Sabbath.  It was a pleasure to see so many kidmin people there.  I will be at the ASI convention Thurs. and Fri. afternoons at the Guide/Real booth.  Maybe I will see some of you there.

IYM is planning a nature weekend the first weekend of Nov. at Camp Kulaqua.  This is to teach adults how to teach nature to children.  I have attached the poster. Save this date.  I will have more information for you soon.

We are continuing our push for background checks.  The compliance date is Oct. 1.  You can find the info at http://www.floridaconference.com/iym/childrenandfamily/free-resources/ under Background Check Information.  If you haven’t already done yours, please get it done soon.  Everything is done online.  The training must be completed before you can fill out the background check form.  The training takes about an hour and a half but does not need to be done at one time.  Go to http://shieldthevulnerable.com/ and follow the steps given.

I look forward to your reports and pictures from your Vacation Bible School.  It has been a busy VBS season.  You can mail, fax, or email me your report.  I have attached the form.

Have I told you about Steve Spangler?  If not, you need to check out his website at http://www.stevespanglerscience.com/   Sign up for his weekly email.  You will get some great science experiments that you can use to teach Biblical messages.  The site is secular, but the science is God-given.  You can also check out his YouTube videos.

I will get this posted at http://www.floridaconference.com/iym/category/children-family/ and add the attachments.

Until next time, God bless,
