“Deep Sea Discovery: Diving into the Bible”
We’re finishing the school year with the theme of “Bible Cookies”! Yummy! We have been taking a different cookie each week & using it to learn & remember some of the parables of Jesus. We’ve learned about 6 different parables & finished off with the Parable of the Good Samaritan, the Talents & the Wise & Foolish Builders. The students made fleece blankets for Project Linus (non-profit organization that provides blankets to children in need), made talent bags so they can be reminded to use their talents to show Jesus’ love to others & were given Good Samaritan Bags with items such as Band-Aids, Kleenex & treats so they can be Good Samaritans too! We’ll be celebrating the last day of Sunday school with treats & Bingo!
The Preschoolers/Kindergarteners have been learning about how the church, Saul & Lydia followed Jesus & how we can follow Jesus too! They made a Flip & Follow Jesus book, played a following directions game, made Learn About Jesus Picture Albums & played a listening Bingo game.
The Sunday school kids have also been working on raising money for Heifer International to purchase animals for families in other countries! The program is called Animal Crackers & each week we are learning how a different animal can help a family or even a whole village! Based on how much money we raise; the kids will decide what animals we’ll purchase. You’ll have to wait until the next newsletter to see how much they raised & what animals we purchased!
Summer Sunday School (SSS) begins Jun 13 & ends Aug 22.
Join us for a Summer Road Trip! "Are We There Yet? The family road trip can be great fun, seeing the sights & spending time together. It can also breed complaining about cramped quarters & boredom. When the Israelites took a road trip to the land God promised them, they complained the whole way. They forgot that God has good things in store." Take a road trip with us to learn about Moses & the Israelites! We’ll finish the summer season watching the animated movie "The Prince of Egypt." Don't miss out on all the summer fun!
Vacation Bible School
Thank you to all the families that completed the Vacation Bible School Survey! Based on the results of the survey, Vacation Bible School (VBS) will be in- person the week of July 26 through July 30. We’re still working on an online version for those who would rather not attend in person activities yet, so stay tuned! Sign-up will be available soon & don’t forget to invite a friend!
This year’s theme is “Knights of North Castle: Quest for the King’s Armor!” “North Castle is hidden in a frozen land. The King’s valiant Knights are on a quest in search of the King’s Armor. But the armor isn’t what they think it is. Knights of North Castle: Quest for the King’s Armor, invites children to be strong in the Lord & in the strength of his power by exploring how we put on the armor of God. Kids will take on the role of brave Knights & begin their quest each session by opening the King’s Book.
They’ll explore Old & New Testament stories & discover different pieces of protective armor — the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Justice, the Shoes of Peace, the Shield of Faith & the Helmet of Salvation — at work in the lives of familiar Bible characters & explore how that armor works in their own lives as they follow & serve God. We’ll help the kids take up the gauntlet this summer & accept the challenge to “armor up” & be strong by remaining with God.”
Praying you all have a wonderful end to the school year & can’t wait to see you all again for SSS & VBS!!
