Once again this year several of our family members were able to help with our annual NCHEA (Nebraska Christian Home Educators Association) Kids Conference. Our attendance again swelled to over 300 children, so we had our hands full with a action-packed, meaningful weekend. What memories!
This year the theme was The Quest - Risking it All for the Sake of the King.
We had songs, memory verses, an 8 part drama, lessons, games, awards, and a whole lot of fun! :)
Large group assembly
The drama is a huge highlight every year. And this year was no different. Who doesn't like knights and maidens?! Set in the medieval time period our story followed a young man named Beric who was on a quest to become a knight. Along the way he has a sorts of adventures, mishaps, lessons to learn, dangers, and celebrations.
Alaythia, Nathanael and I (Hannah) were able to be in the drama.
Nathanael was one of the sword-fighters.
Alaythia and I were peddlers, townsfolk, and anything else that was needed.
Most of the cast and crew
Ruth, Elizabeth and I were team leaders
Susanna was a teacher as well
Alaythia was part of the special 'teachers-in-training' session for the 13-14 year olds. Packed with practical instruction and application, she learned allot about dynamic teaching and was able to put her new skills into action by sharing one of the character lessons.
Nathanael and Charissa were on teams
Lots of fun!
To God be the glory!
"If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed
when He comes in His own glory."
