On August 16th we will be starting a new series in Children’s Church. It’s called “10 for Life.” Each week will look at a new Bible verse that will help us build a foundation of Bible knowledge that we can hide in our hearts for life. Parents, encourage your kids to not just learn from the scripture, but to MEMORIZE it. Test them on them. Reward them weekly for memorizing them. It will be a life-changing experience for them—and YOU! A list of the verses will be available at The Hub in the coming weeks!
August 30th is Family Sunday. There will be no Children’s Church. Take this opportunity to worship together as a family. Be sure to pick up a bulletin made just for kids! Parents, be sure to pick up your children from Sunday School so that their teachers can find a seat too!
We are kicking off our Wednesday Night program on August 19th at 6:30 pm. We will have dinner at 6:30 in the Bridge with the youth group. After dinner we will spend time in our classes meeting our teachers, catching up with friends, and learning about this semester’s theme.
These semester’s theme is called “When I Grow Up” It’s natural to look to the future and wonder what kind of jobs we will have and what kind of people we will be. Regardless of what career we pursue, we can use our strengths to serve God – both when we grow up and right now. We will look at Police Officers, Farmers, Artist, Engineers, and even Missionaries to see how we can serve God with our lives. Everyone is encouraged to dress up like the people they want to be when they grow up for the kick off!
Colossians 3:17 is our memory verse for the semester. “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” There will be a prize for every child that comes to the kick off with this verse already memorized.
On Aug 16th the Children’s Ministry will be kicking off our Mentoring program for the school year following the 11am Service. This is for 3rd-5th graders and any child who has been baptized. Be sure to pack a lunch and bring it with you! Pick up is at 2pm.
