Children's Ministry Update: June 2018

Dear Church Family,

As spring rolls into summer we all are looking forward to breaks, vacations, and more outdoor activities as a family. In the same way,  I am very excited for the Summer Missions that we all will be engaged in as a church. When Jesus commanded us in Matthew 28:19  “Go and make disciples of all nations,” he didn’t put an age or place limit. Our children will be part of this mission trip with us. How exciting!

Therefore, the childrens program on Sundays will focus on mission. They will be learning about bringing the good news of Jesus into their neighborhoods, schools and families. Each week they will be learning Bible-time missions connected to modern-day missions. They will have take-home papers for each lesson that supports biblical truth for that day, engaging fun activities, memory verses, country/mission organizations to pray for, and practical applications about how they can be on the mission field every week.

Please join us as we learn God’s truth and apply it in our everyday life.

What We’re Learning


Bible Blast

  • We held our Bible Blast program at MIT campus on Pentecost Sunday, May 20th.
  • We shared the love of Jesus to some families who attended the program.
  • We are on the break for the summer.

Little Kids Club and Kids Club

In the month of June we are continuing unit 7: the Gospel project curriculum. The children covered the Old Testament from Numbers to Joshua.


G.I.G.

In GIG students explore Psalms, and are integrating it with the Lord’s Prayer.


Upcoming Events

Parents meeting June 24 to evaluate what we have done so far, both in family discipleship and the children program. We also will discuss the possibilities of how we as a body of Christ connect and disciple our children.

 

July –September we will focus on Mission using the curriculum Disciple Junction “Sharing God with Others” that covers the foundational theme:

  • Meeting Modern Missionaries
  • Getting Others on Board
  • Hearing God’s Call.

See some pictures from our MIT event on May 20!

Children and Family Ministry Updates

Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
-Deuteronomy 6:7-8

Dear Church Family,

In the discipleship of our children, I would like to echo what Pastor Dan always says, “Read the Bible.” I would like to encourage all of us to talk about God’s word when we sit at home, when we walk/drive along the road, when we play and read for our children, when we watch movies, eat dinner together, when we listen to the news, and all of the time!

Please see below for a summary of what the children and family ministries have been focusing on lately.

Blessings,

Rahel

 

DISCIPLESHIP

During the church service Little Kids Club and Kids Club are continuing the Gospel Project curriculum. We are in the Old Testament, covering Exodus 1-Deutronomy 5. There are two main themes:

“God the Redeemer” ( Exodus 1- 19)

“God is Holy” (Exodus 20-Deutronomy 5)

GIG (Growing in God), our 4th – 6th students, are exploring the Psalms and connecting them with the Lord’s prayer.

 

Bible Blast

In our family discipleship program we have been learning the Lord’s prayer. Now we are at the end of our study. During the last two weeks we will focus on “ Give us today our daily bread, forgive our sin as we forgive those who sin against us,  and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one.”

On the 1st Sunday of the month parents and leaders join the congregation for prayer and fasting from 9:30 am-10:30am.

 

Palm Sunday and Easter

On Palm Sunday, CBC families had the opportunity to hold Bible Blast at the MIT Westgate community instead of in our own church. We presented an interactive bible story, craft, and snack.

On Easter Sunday we enjoyed the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. The children's choir sang two songs for the congregation.
