Children step back in time at Athens, exploring some of the adventures Paul faced. Kids and leaders participate in a memorable Bible-times Marketplace, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, dig into Bible-times snacks, visit Daniel and collect Bible Memory Makers to remind them of God’s Word. Plus, everyone learns to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes at Celebration — a time of upbeat worship that gets everyone involved. Kids at Athens will join more than a million participants reaching out to needy kids through a hands-on mission project called Operation Kid-to-Kid, in which children will send photo and personalized Bible coloring books to children in India.
