King's Kids Kick-off

Fall has arrived and last night we kicked-off our King's Kids Ministry!  I was expecting chaos with the temporary location, service project, parent orientation, etc.  Thanks to our wonderful volunteer team who came early to set up and prepare and to the parents and children, it was a huge success!!

This week's Bible verse is from Philippians 2:5, "You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had."  Help your child learn this verse and also talk about the meaning of the verse.  And make sure to look over the Living Inside Out Every Day Take Home sheet for your child's Live it challenge as well as some activities you can choose to do as a family as a tool to disciple your children and live out Deuteronomy 6:6-7!

Kid's Worship will begin weekly this Sunday, September 7th.  This is for children preschool-3rd grade.  It is an optional ministry for young families.  The children begin in the service for praise songs, dismissed and then brought back to service before closing song.

 Make sure to mark your calendars for Sunday evening, October 19th, for some old-fashioned farm fun and fellowship!  Also, couple items to put on the calendar:  Bible Sunday for 2nd & 6th grade children is Sunday, October 5.  First Communion is scheduled for Sunday, March 3, 2015.  There will also be 2 required classes for child and parent(s) scheduled for Wed., February 4 and Wed., February 25, 2015 (TBA).   This is open to 4th and 5th grade children at parent's discretion, or at possible earlier age upon parent's request.

My prayer for all of you this week is that God would strength you and create time and opportunities for you to train your child to know, love and follow Jesus!
