Throughout the month of March we will be learning all about the last week of Jesus life which we call Holy Week. As we walk through Lent we’ll discover the details of Palm Sunday, the meal with the disciples in the upper room, praying in the garden, Jesus arrest and execution as well as the triumphant resurrection which we celebrate on Easter. Creative and fun lessons will make the stories from the Bible come to life. Please join us in March to help your children discover the meaning in these important pieces of our faith!
Clean out your bookshelves and donate books throughout this month! Our church-wide collection of books continues this week as we gather recycled books for Read Indeed. all books will be given to kids and adults around the world who are in need of reading materials. Keep the love of reading going by sharing books. Drop boxes are in the west and east entrances.
We Need Your Help!!
This month we are in desperate need of volunteers for teaching and guiding. I promise you, it is fun, and your kids LOVE when you volunteer. I am in need of teachers and guides for all grades. Click here to look at the openings and to choose dates to help. I will follow up with details for you on everything you need to know. Thanks for working with me to guide your kids on their spiritual journey!
Moment for Mission this Week:
Meet in the Care of You Room (off the gym)
Doing Good for Others in Secret-Matthew 6: 1-4This week’s bible verse will be talking about the importance of giving from the heart without asking for praise. We’ll read this important verse from the Bible and talk about how our praise comes from God who sees all the good that we do. Then we’ll all do a random act of kindness around the church without being seen! It will be fun!
Bring your friends and join in the fun!
Kids’ Night Out meets from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. in the Gym. All children ages 3 through 5th grade are invited to join their church family for games, crafts, dinner and a movie once a month at church! This is a great way to build relationships with others and to experience church in a different way. Registration is required.
