April 27th Update

Good morning!

We have finished our final week in April and there are only two weeks left of King’s Kids on Wednesday nights. What an amazing year as we continue to see kids coming excited and ready to learn from God’s Word. We even had a few new faces last night as our kids coming continue to tell their friends about our Wednesday nights. 

Upcoming Event:
Reminder that our Family event is next Friday night from 6:00 – 8:00 at King of Glory. The final day to sign up is this Sunday. WE will be enjoying some fun tv game show type games as families work as a team through each station. Along with that, families are encouraged to dress up together. It can be as simple as wearing the same shirt, or as creative as coming decked out in a family theme. Have fun with it and come enjoy a fun night at KOG.

Prek/K  room: Last night our young ones talked about obeying God. Diving into John 14:15-17 15 “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper,[a] to be with you forever,17 even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be[b] in you.” The good news in all of this is that we do not have to do this by our own strength. God also sends us a helper – the Holy Spirit. As our kids continue to learn about the love of God and grow in their love for Him, they will continue to desire to follow His commandments. Working off of last week’s lesson, last night kids learned a few ways in which we can respond to God’s love for us; through prayer, reading God’s word, worshiping Him, caring for one another and growing in community with other believers.   

1st – 5th Grade: Last night was week two of our series on Perseverance. This week, our elementary kids talked about persevering, allowing others witness encourage and strengthen us. Hebrews 12:1 - Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us. Our bottom line is: when life gets hard, remember how others persevered. We are not alone in our struggles, sins and pain. There are others who have gone through the same thing or something similar and we can find strength through the witnesses of others seeking to honor God with their lives. Finally the memory verse for last night came from Isaiah 40:31 “But those who trust the LORD will receive a new strength. They will fly as high as eagles. They will run and not get tired. They will walk and not grow weak.” Our God has given us hope and a strength that we can cling on to as we continue to follow Him. 

As we come to our final two weeks, please continue to pray for our kids coming on Wednesday nights. Pray for the hope, joy and peace we have in Jesus encourage them to seek God in their lives. Pray also for one another as you continue to set an example for your children.
