Children's Ministry

Our goal is to partner together with families to teach children to bear Kingdom fruit.

WHAT WE'RE LEARNING IN OCTOBER...

AMAZED

This month, we are going through the major events in the life of prophet Elijah, all of which are nothing short of amazing! Elijah’s ministry took place during turbulent times for God’s people – so much so that Elijah felt utterly alone at times. Sometimes he was literally alone. But God’s presence and power with Elijah throughout those times is undeniable. Through these stories, kids will discover how amazing it is that God takes care of usGod knows what's best for usGod speaks to us, and in all, God does SO MANY amazing things!

VIRTUAL SUNDAY SCHOOL

October 25, 2020 ELEMENTARY



THIS WEEK

This week, kids will be amazed at how Elijah goes up to heaven in a chariot of fire.


THE BIG IDEA

God does amazing things!l


THE BIBLE

2 Kings 2


SCROLL DOWN FOR THE PRESCHOOL LESSON

PARENTS ASK THIS

Because sometimes you and your kid need a conversation-starter that isn't, "So . . . how was church?"


How did God take Elijah to heaven?


What are some other amazing stories from the Bible you can share with others?


REMEMBER THIS

This month, your kids are memorizing the Bible verse Deuteronomy 7:21 (NIV), in case you want to work on them together.


NEXT WEEK

Next week, we’re starting a new series called.....

SING

A 5-WEEK SERIES ON THE OLD TESTAMENT

People say music is the universal language, something everyone loves in one form or another, and a way we can communicate shared emotion and experience even across generations, culture, location, backgrounds, and traditions. Much of what is expressed in the book of Psalm are things we experience and feel today. Because of that, we can learn a lot about God and ourselves in these Psalms. When kids can claim these five things – I am wonderful because God made me; I am safe because God watches over me; I am confident because God leads me; I am forgiven because God loves me; I am not afraid because God can be trusted – they will be unstoppable in their life with God!
