Holiday Club

28th July

After months of preparation, the first Hill City Holiday Club has been an absolute success! Our theme of the club was Desert Detectives, prompting the kids to explore and find out more about Jesus. This involved a lot of fun scenery, including a manmade desert (AKA a sandbox).

Each day the children were welcomed by our three desert detectives drama characters Doug, Sandy, and June. After cheering and a little warm up, there was fun interactive worship with crazy dance moves and a sketch to follow. 

In each sketch, the desert detectives would find different clues to lead them to “The Mighty Godsword”. The first day they found a wine goblet that led them to discover more about the last supper and about Jesus giving us his body and his blood through the bread and wine.

9th July

Last Wednesday at Hill City Church, our summer interns brought a little bit of “y’all” to the United Kingdom. It was July the Fourth, American Independence Day, so it was only fitting that we celebrate Texas while representing the colors red, white, and blue.

The interns prepared all of the food Wednesday afternoon until the start of the party, making sure that it was as close to what they would have in Texas as possible. Once everyone had eaten, we all broke out our dancing “boots” as the interns taught everyone how to country dance.

Kaylee Ruppel:

Hello everyone! My name is Kaylee. I was born and raised in a small town called New Braunfels in the Texas Hill Country. I grew up in a Christian home and accepted Christ at a young age, making my faith truly my own over the course of my life. I am twenty years old and about to enter into my third year at Dallas Baptist University studying English and photography. My passions are writing, reading, photography, art, and building relationships with people. I love trying new things and ceasing every once in a lifetime opportunity that I can.

It … Read More »
