October 22 update

Last night we sang songs that we will be singing at Lifescape (Children's Care Hospital) on Serve Sunday, November 2.  If your family has not signed up for a service project, please consider joining us at Lifescape for singing and then at Southridge Nursing Home for playing cards and games with the residents.  It is going to be a fun morning and a wonderful opportunity for you to serve with your children!

We continued last night learning about people from the OT who worked willingly for the Lord.  Joseph found favor with God in all his situations, from being thrown in a well by his brothers, sold into slavery and prison, to interpreting the king's dreams.  His faith and working hard in all situations was a testimony for us of God's provision and care for His children. 

Keep encouraging your children to memorize the weekly scripture verses.  Children have the capacity for great faith and soaking up scripture.  I was reminded of that as I listened to a 3 year old rattle off 4 verses from memory last night!  Pure Joy!

Also, I want to remind you and encourage you to be working with your children on the 10 Commandments.  We will begin using a song, probably in the new year, to help you in this process.  Please use the 10 Commandment sheet sent home at the parent orientation session and if you need another copy,  just let me know.

Please remember to thank the Children's Ministry volunteers who are leading and working with your children.  They will be attending a training session this Sunday called, "Building Relationships with Children".   We are blessed with wonderful leaders who love God and desire to show His love to your children.  Please keep them in your prayers.

Onward,

Julie
