What does Cold Stone's ice cream and the Bible have in common? Plenty, it turns out.
Last Wednesday night was the last of our Pioneer Club for the season. My part in it is to help our kids memorize scripture verses and the books of the Bible. When one of our kids memorizes all 66 books of the Bible, they get their name on the '66 Club' plaque. What do they get when they memorize scripture verses?
Typically there are 7 scripture verses on a page. My deal with them is when they memorize all seven scriptures, I'll take them to Cold Stone's for ice cream. Its a great way to memorize scripture and have fun together.
Last Wednesday we had LOTS of fun! Because it was the last week of the season, the push was on to finish all the verses on the page (some kids are working on their third or fourth page of scriptures). By the end of the night, there were 16 kids who had earned a trip to Cold Stone's!
It was a great way to end the season and a testament to the great work Jami Lewis and all the people involved with Pioneer Club are doing.
