It’s hard to believe that the end of the program year is fast approaching! Sundays in May will be a little bit different from our usual Graceland Model on Sunday morning. Here’s the plan:
April 28-Holy Week-Last unit of our April “holy week” experience in all labs
May 5-Perseverance: The Great Commission and Spread of the Gospel
Matthew 26: 16-20; Acts 1-2.
May 12-Mother’s Day Surprise: We’ll make some special gifts for mothers or significant women in our lives and talk about what God says about honoring our mothers.
May 19: Celebration Sunday: Kids will be invited in to the sanctuary all hour for a celebration of all programs from the year. This kid friendly service will feature k-5th graders singing songs learned during our Wednesday programming this year.
May 26: Memorial Day Celebration: We’ll talk about what it means to remember those we love who have passed away then we’ll make a special gift to plant in our gardens to remember them.
All month we’ll learn about:
THE CONNECTION BETWEEN PERSEVERANCE AND GOD’S CHARACTER, AS SHOWN THROUGH GOD’S BIG STORY
Throughout history, God has offered strength to help people persevere through difficult situations. Jesus persevered through death itself to make it possible for us to have a forever relationship with God.
BIBLE Stories this month:
May 1st: Great Commission and Spread of the Gospel
Matthew 26:16-20, Acts 1–2
May 8th: Paul and Silas in Prison Acts 16:16-40
May 15th: Cloud of Witnesses Hebrews 12:1
Bottom Line week 1: Keep going because God is with you.
Bottom Line week 2: You can choose joy when life gets hard.
Bottom Line week 3: God can help you let go of what is holding you back.
May 15th is the last day of Wednesday programming for the year! We will have an ice cream party and games in the gym to celebrate!
Open gym-Each Wednesday the gym is open for free play from 5:30-6:30 before class starts. Responsible high school students are in the room to monitor kids as they play. All kids are called into their classes by leaders at 6:30 sharp.
Each week Miss Autumn joins us during class to teach songs that tie in with our monthly theme! All kids also have small group leaders who meet with them each week to build relationships and to teach the lessons through games and activities. Research shows that all kids need caring adults other than their parents in their lives to walk with them on the journey. Our committed leaders understand this mission and have signed on for the year to walk in faith with your kids! Take the time to thank your child’s leaders each week.
