Backyard Kids Club

Rather than the traditional VBS format, GABC has chosen to foster relationships in our neighborhoods and encourage members to host Backyard Kids Clubs. These clubs are offered in various locations throughout Ames and neighboring communities during the summer.

This year’s Backyard Kids Clubs are now finished meeting for the summer. This year’s curriculum was entitled: Proof Pirates – Finding the Treasure of God’s Amazing Grace. It explained the doctrines of grace using the popular PROOF acronym with the book of Ephesians (God’s grace is Planned, Resurrected, Outrageous, Overcoming, and Forever). As children Kindergarten through 5th grades studied God’s Word, they discovered from Ephesians that it’s God’s grace who makes them who they are–not their performances, their grades, their completion of chores, or anything they can do for themselves.
