King City Chronicles (Children's Church Update)
by Kasey Carter
Hello faithful readers, cub reporter Kasey Carter coming at you with an exciting edition of StreetBeat. People are always asking, “Kasey Carter, what’s happening around King City?” The big story this summer was our first-ever virtual VBS, Scoutabout: Out of Service!
Scoutabout is a free, five-day online Vacation Bible School featuring our own Professor Von Himmel, who does everything out of service for the Lord! With the help of his grandson, Skyler and his faithful lab assistant, Helga, the nutty professor tries his best to get closer to Jesus. Using his special time machine he manages to bring several of the Lord’s disciples to his lab, each time getting a little closer to the truth of how to serve the Lord and others.
Scoutabout features fun and informative sketches, lively worship, crafts, game times, and even a daily service challenge! And the best part is you can do it in your own home with your brothers and sisters, your neighborhood friends, even your mom, and dad.Ask your parents to log on to NorthlandChurch.net/VBS to find all the videos!

It’s been quite some time since we’ve been able to worship face to face in the old Children’s Worship Wing but that hasn’t held us back from providing quality Children’s programming to point our little lambs to the throne of God.This year’s theme is Kings and Kingdoms and if ever we needed reassurance from our King it’s here and now! Rest assured the King is in control and Children’s Church will go on. This summer we enjoyed a virtual visit to Camp Venture! Ranger Reggie and his pal, Safari Sam took us around the world aboard the Safari Express tot each us all about the amazing parables that Jesus shared with His disciples. For ten weeks we’ve produced virtual services complete with our fun opening greetings, worship music, crazy characters to teach you the Bible lessons, and even an optional craft lesson.
All summer you’ve been able to worship with us from the comfort of your own home. We hope you’ve enjoyed learning more about our King Who Teaches. We sure have enjoyed bringing His Word to you. But that ain’t all! We’ve also been bringing you devotionals every week since the lockdown began. Every Monday through Friday, for over twenty weeks, Children’s Church has been producing daily devotional messages featuring your friends Mr. Robert, Ms. Marisol, Mr. David, and Ms. Lola. We’ve also had special appearances from our crazy friends Professor Von Himmel, Dr. Sominex, Sir Praisealot, and SquireGus. Even our pirate pals Capt. BillyOcean and his nephew Cody sailed by to uncover some treasured scriptures.
You can also find special pre-K lessons and story times with Ms. Jessica and Delbert the Donkey from Praise Time on Northlandchurch.net/Children.
