reminder!

Reminder to Send Your Child in Play Clothes Tomorrow!

Tomorrow, your child will be given the opportunity to put last weeks’ lesson into action!

Our friends in the Garden, Backyard and K-Street will be working together to complete a service project at church by planting flowers outside Bright Beginnings.

So, please make sure to dress your children in “flower planting clothes” next week as we very well may get a little dirty!

The flower planted by your child will be marked with their name so that they can help give it a drink each week, watch it grow over the summer and know that their service to God helped make our church grounds beautiful!

See you in the morning!

FLOWERS

take it home | 05.15 (and special note)

Series Bible Verse:  2 Peter 1:5-7 “…add this to your life: faith, and to your faith, goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, patience; and to patience, service for God; and to service for God, kindness; and to kindness, love.

Character Element of the Week: Service for God

Science Experiment:  Making Goop!

Story:  Nehemiah  (Nehemiah 2:1-6:16)

Bible Verse:  “…and to your patience, add SERVICE FOR GOD”  2 Peter 1:6c

Prayer: Dear God, You have done so much for me.  Help me to serve You by helping others.  Help me to see when others have a need and to do something about it.  Amen

Take-It Home Activities:

Parents:  Is there another parent you know that could use a night out this week?  Give them a call and offer to watch their children.  Your children will love the extra playmates and you’ll be modeling “service to others” to your children.

Birth – Age 2: Even young children can help out at home.  Instead of doing all the chores for them, invite them to help you with simple tasks such as putting their cup in the sink, throwing away their own diaper, helping to pick up toys, putting clean clothes away, etc.  It will most likely take more time, but they will love helping you and the seeds you are planting are worth it!

Age 3 – Kindergarten:  Do your children help out with chores at home?  If not, start with a few simple chores such as making their bed (it doesn’t need to be perfect), helping set the table, sweeping after meals (again, perfection is not the goal), etc.  Make it fun and remind your child that when they are serving their family, they are serving God.

SPECIAL NOTE

wear your play clothes!

We are in the middle of a series called Driving Force and over the next two weeks we will be talking about service.

One way we can  serve God is to serve others.

So, our Garden and Backyard friends are going to be planting flowers outside the church as a class service project tomorrow.

Mr. Doug and Miss Jerri have been working hard to get the soil ready for planting.  

Make sure to dress you children in something they can get dirty and we’ll see you in the morning!
