Why Scream When You Can SHOUT!?! – Event Service & Kit

This could be the loudest church event you have ever had!

Loudness, fun, and excitement go together in your kids’ view of an amazing Fall Fest Event! This “Why Scream When You Can Shout!?!” Fall Fest Service & Event Day Combo is your opportunity to give your kids all the loudness, fun, and excitement they expect and desire while you effectively accomplish the eternal purposes of revealing how they can live a winning life in Christ!

The lesson focus comes from the idea that there is a difference between screaming and shouting. You

-“Scream” when you believe that you are defeated or
-“Shout” when you know that you have won!
