Nursery (6 Months-3years old):
We are starting to do painting in nursery! The children will have the opportunity to use the paints and develop their fine motor skills. We are providing shirts to cover their clothes during the activity and send them home clean with a new work of art!
PreK (3-5years old):
A heart that matches God’s heart is ready to do what is good! But how do you know if your heart matches God’s heart? Get to know God by through the Bible, singing to God, and praying. In May, we'll look at the story of David and Goliath.
Our bible verse this month is Titus 3:1 “…be ready to do what is good”.
Every month we have a Q & A with the kids, which reflects the monthly lesson. This month we’re asking “How can your heart match God’s heart?” A: “I get to know God!” A heart that matches God’s is ready to do good! Feel free to visit here to read more about this month’s lesson, titled: "Stones, Slings, and Giant Things!"
***In addition to in-church lessons that follow the Bible App for Kids animated stories, preschoolers and their parents can also watch lessons and memorize verses at home in the corresponding Bible App for Kids chapters. Visit www.bible.com/kids to download the app.
Kids (Kindergarten-5th grade):
Theme: Determination is a response of the character of God.
Throughout Scripture, we can discover that God has been faithful to His people. He rescued them from slavery in Egypt. He sent Jesus to rescue us from our sin. He remained faithful to the early church as they spread the message of Jesus throughout the world. When we see how God gave His people what they needed to continue following Him, we can respond with determination believing that God will give us what we need to finish what we start.
Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to help us have determination.
When Jesus gave His disciples the incredible mission of spreading the message of the Gospel throughout the world, He didn’t make them do it alone. Instead, He sent the Holy Spirit to empower them to show faith and determination in the face of whatever might happen along the way. When we put our faith in Jesus, the Holy Spirit empowers us to finish what we start.
We think it’s important for us to help our kids and families discover more about determination—deciding it’s worth it to finish what you started.
Our Memory Verse is Galatians 6:9. “Let us not become tired of doing good. At the right time we will gather a crop if we don’t give up” (NIrV).
This month, let’s see how determination shows up in the early church and the first followers of Jesus as they worked to accomplish the mission He had for them.
As always you can pick up a take home paper to go deeper in the lesson with your kiddos. It's located at kids check in.
This month we are also kicking off our "Parenting on Purpose" class on Wednesdays from 7-8:30PM, childcare is available for $5.00 per child and the class is now $30.00 for all four weeks. You can register here.
