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.

Preschool

This week, the preschoolers began to learn to please God with their daily actions and follow Jesus.

Our Bible Story: Jesus Gives the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:1)

Our Key Concept: Following Jesus makes me happy.

Our Activity: We made drawings that'll prompt them to do God-pleasing activities.

Something You Can Do With Me: Use my toys to act out different Bible stories and reasons why people came to Jesus.

Elementary

This week, we continued in our series called The Great Race. In the coming weeks, we'll be going on a race around the world as we study the book of Nehemiah and what it says about how to live our lives and never give up! This week, we learned that we should instruct other people to do what is right.

Memory Verse: "You must teach these things and encourage the believers to do them. You have the authority to correct them when necessary, so don't let anyone discourage what you say." Titus 2:15

A question you can ask me about the lesson: When Nehemiah heard that the wealthy Jews were being mean to the Jews who were poor, what did he do?

This weekend in small group: We played a matching game to help us know what to say in some situations that we might experience with our friends.
