We want to take a moment to thank Gizelle Graves for her dedication to overseeing the nursery and caring for your children. She has handled the ministry with love like Jesus and motivation to make it the safest place for your children. She has decided to step down from her role as nursery supervisor and step into other areas of ministry at her home as well as Church. Thank you Gizelle, we love you!
We are going to be learning about Joseph and the misfortunes he had to go through to fulfill God’s plan. God has plans for everything He made, sometimes that means things get tough for us.. but everything will always fall into place right? We just need to learn how to trust and follow Jesus. He is with us on our good days and bad days, whether we see it or not.
Our memory verse this month is Jeremiak 29:11 “… I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good.”
Kids (K-5th Grade):
Creativity is a reflection of the character of God.
From the opening pages of Scripture, we encounter God’s creativity in action. With words, Let there be light, the poem of creation unfolds as light gives way to time, oceans and mountains form, galaxies are set in motion, and the earth is filled with birds, fish, and every creature imaginable. But God is not finished creating. God decided that He wanted His image to populate the earth. He created people in His image to take care and develop His magnificent creation. Humans are unique in that we reflect God in how we interact with each other and the world around us. That interaction includes God’s creativity. We may not form mountains and oceans, but we create art and music, build cities, solve problems, and innovate technology—all of which starts with our God-given creativity.
Jesus showed us creativity in action.
Jesus was the Word that spoke God’s creation into existence at the beginning of time. And when Jesus arrived on earth to fulfill God’s plan to rescue humanity, that same creativity was evident in every interaction we read throughout Scripture. Through stories, Jesus could explain something difficult or confusing about the Kingdom of God. With unconventional materials, Jesus healed the sick and hurting. With the right question, He could point to His disciples and the religious leaders what is most important to God. Throughout His earthly ministry, Jesus showed us the difference we can make in the world through creativity.
We think it’s important for us to help our kids discover more about Creativity—imagining what you could do because you are made in God’s image.
Memory Verse: Psalm 139:14. How you made me is amazing and wonderful. I praise you for that (NIrV).
As we help kids discover more about God’s creativity, we head to the beginning—Genesis—and learn more about God’s creativity in the creation of the world.
