Creek Kids Warehouse is open!!


Today was the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting for our new Children's Ministry! I am so proud to be a part of the team and WOW what a day! It rocked! Everything went well, the kids were wide-eyed and excited, just wait, there's more to come!! We started this building journey 2+years ago, and broke ground June 08 and today it was a reality! I took a few pics, but they aren't great, so hopefully I can direct you to better ones as soon as they are published! I am the Shop Foreman at the 10am service time, if you are in the area, stop by and say HI! The whole building is themed as a Warehouse, garage, alley, service station, you get the jist.(Click pics for larger size!)
in the Chop Shop (volunteer lounge)

new kids check in

the alley

entrance to the Garage (door closed)
when large group starts, the siren goes off
and the door opens to the Garage area.
Couldn't get a good pic, too dark!

this is the slide from the loft to the main stage,
Trey was messing around one day when I was
painting!

More of the alley; foosball, air hockey, basketball,
skateboarding, shave cream wall, Tic Tac Toe,
checkers, video games, ping pong... it's hard getting the
kids outta here! (and some grown ups)

K-1 classroom, still waiting on the rugs for in here.

2-3 grade classroom, those bean bags are HUGE!
4-5th grade room.

We are just so blessed to have this for our kids, the people that
volunteer are the best and the Campus director rocks!

We are having a carnival for the community in Sept,
it's gonna be a biggie! More on that later!
