Kids are usually drawn to stars that enter our living rooms everyday, but one local church is focusing on the youngest members of their congregation and introducing them to heroes of a different kind.
Schools out for summer and while most churches are gearing up for youth camps and vacation bible school for the older kids, New Life Church in Maumelle is focusing on the youngsters this week.
Their theme, Game Day Central: Where Heroes are Made.
"It's basically just focusing on heroes of the Bible and helping children to make the right choices and to teach others about God," explains Little Life Academy director, Kristie Bridges.
It's a lesson some parents say is larger than life for the kiddos ages two to seven years old.
"For me it means helping her become a good person. She'll get a good solid ground of Christian values," explains Julianna Sublette whose daughter, Emmy, is part of the week long camp.
"I know with my children, I want them to know at an early age what God wants them to do. If they can learn what their purpose here on Earth then I think they'll succeed in anything they do if they put God first," adds Bridges.
As the heroes-in-the making line-up for their next activity, Game Day Central allows mom and dad to catch up on daily errands before getting a re-cap of all their little ones day of fun.
It's a little fun that goes a long way before school resumes in the fall.
This fall they're extending their age group to 9 months to 4 years old.
During the school year Little Life Academy is open Tuesday and Thursday from 9-2.
