Summer Adventure Kit
Wausau has so many places to explore and things to do. Join us this summer on an awesome adventure in Wausau and the surrounding area as we learn Gospel truths and experience the awesomeness of God’s creation.
Quest: Search for the Source Summer Adventure Kit comes with five adventures that can be done with your kids and others this summer. The way each adventure is laid out, we suggest that you consider spreading the kit out over the course of a month, so in your summer you’ll have family adventure activities all summer long.
The kit comes with 25+ activities, and it costs only $20 which covers the cost of the materials, and provides enough supplies for four kids. Kit’s will be delivered for use following the Fourth of July–when your kids get tired of running through the sprinkler and are looking for something new to do.
We Are Made In God’s Image
We Are Lost
Jesus Is The Way Home
We Are God’s Children
1 John 3:1-2
We Reflect God’s Glory
2 Corinthians 3:18
Our identity in Jesus is the biblical theme of this year’s adventure.
“…fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” – Hebrews 12:2
The bible uses the concept of Jesus the pioneer, the trail blazer, the author, and perfecter of faith. Ηe is the one who goes ahead of us, and shows us the way to be truly who we were made to be.
