welcome, parents & kids-

Each weekend, we have kid-friendly, interactive, and fun biblical programming for our kids.  Children will hear a great Bible truth and will be challenged to live it in their lives. On the following pages, you'll find the lessons we learned this week in kids' church  so that you can reinforce them at home.


This week, we celebrated Thanksgiving and learned that we should be thankful to God in all things!

Our Biblical Account: David Thanks God (Psalm 138)

Our Key Concept: We need to tell Jesus "Thank You!"

Our Activity: We wrote letters to Jesus thanking Him for all the things in our lives.

Something You Can Do With Me: Pray with me each night before bed and help me thank Jesus for something in my life.


This week, we began our Christmas series called Shipping Central. For the next several weeks, we'll be talking about the incredible gift of Jesus that we were given and we'll be taking a look at several people from the Bible who God used to reveal more about Himself. This week we looked at a couple of prophets and learned about the importance of knowing that God has a plan and He is in control as we wait.

Memory Verse: "Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us." Matthew 1:22-23

A question you can ask me about the lesson: What does the name Emmanuel mean? How does that make you feel knowing that God is always with you?

This weekend in small groups: We played a game to help us understand how hard it was for the Israelites to wait for Jesus to come even though they knew God had promised to send Him. We learned how important it is to remember that God always keeps His promises, even if we have to wait sometimes!

jump wednesdays

JUMP is a way to power up mid-week with a faith booster. JUMP offers a fun and exciting way to grow in faith during the week.

Take a look at what we learned at JUMP this past week...

Our preschoolers learned about serving others by packing Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes to send to kids around the world.

In the Lower Deck, the kids are in a lesson series called God's Portfolio. This week, they learned about the 3 parts of the Trinity and how each person of the Trinity is a distinct person but 1 God.

The Upper Deck kids began to learn about important themes of the Bible and why those themes are still important today! This week, they learned about the Books of Prophecy and how we can learn to obey God because He always keeps His promises.
