Rainbows in the Spring

Because Spring Break happens at different times for various parts of the country, Mission Arlington’s Spring Break Rainbow Express® season lasts for several weeks in March.   Student groups from across Texas and around the country come to lead Rainbow Express® in coordination with the Mission Arlington® family.

In case you don’t know, Rainbow Express® is our version of a “backyard Bible club,” including games, snacks, crafts, snacks, songs, and Bible stories.  We’ve designed the experience to happen over four days (Monday-Thursday), lasting about 1.5 hours per day.  We offer morning, afternoon, and evening options in order to best need the needs of our community.

One of our Mission Arlington® Bible study leaders told us this week how much Rainbow Express® had meant to his Bible study group:

When the children saw the student groups at the church, they ran to them laughing and smiling.  They were so excited to be there – and they learned so much about the Bible, and the Lord.”

We love for children to have fun at Rainbow Express®, and it does all of us good to see the excitement and joy of these young people. However, the larger purpose of these 4-day events is to share God’s love.  We want them to know that not only do we love them, but that God knows their name and loves them too, in fact, more than we ever could.

In the first two weeks, 3,967 students have attended at least one Rainbow experience, and 127 young people have chosen to give their lives to Christ.

We have one more week of Spring Break Rainbow Express®. After that, we’ll close it down for a few weeks, then begin again in late May, as the Summer season begins. To learn more about Rainbow Express®, click here.
