BASICS- Sunday, July 15th

If your child is interested in being baptized, we strongly encourage you and your child to attend the BASICS Waypoint on Sunday, July 15th. This is a great way to make sure your child understands what salvation and baptism are all about before taking that next step on their faith journey. Sign up HERE.

 

Here’s what we’ll be talking about on Sunday, June 24th 

Elementary—God is Contentment
Philippians 3-4 (Letter to the Philippians) 

We’ve been learning this summer how we, as followers of Jesus, have the Holy Spirit living inside us to guide, and give us power to do what God wants us to do. This past week we talked about how the Holy Spirit works in us, and the Fruit of the Spirit will come out in the way we live our lives. We won’t be controlled by the old sinful nature, but rather, we will listen to God’s Spirit and do what He wants. 

This week, we’ll look at Paul’s letter to the Philippians. Paul was encouraging this group of people to be content. Although contentment isn’t listed with the other Fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23), only the Holy Spirit could help us be content in adverse circumstances. 

When Paul was writing this letter, he was chained to two guards! Think about that when you read Philippians 4:4-11. No matter what was happening to him, Paul was filled with peace, joy and the confidence that God would give him the strength to do everything He had planned. 

We can live with that same contentment! God is the source. We just need to look to Him.

Preschool—Jesus is the Good News
Matthew 28:16-20 (The Great Commission) 

Before Jesus went back to heaven to be with the Father, He gave His followers an assignment. He told them to share the Good News about Him with everyone! Jesus had changed their lives and they weren’t to keep it to themselves. 

Aren’t you glad the Good News didn’t just stay in Jerusalem? If that had happened, we wouldn’t know the Good News here in Hartland, WI. Who do you know that needs to know the Good News about Jesus? I pray that God gives you and your family the opportunity to share with them this week!

2 Year Olds–God Takes Care of Me
I Kings 17 (Elijah and the Ravens)
Foundational Truth: God is with Me 

We’re continuing to look at God’s Big Story and a man named Elijah. God did some amazing things to take care of this man—birds brought him food, and he got water from a stream. Wow! 

God gave us examples like this to encourage and remind us that He can take care of us too—in amazing ways if needed! Children accept and believe this so much more readily than adults. I want to be like them, and have faith like a child, to trust God to do the seemingly “impossible” to take care of me, too.

SUMMER INFORMATION - PLEASE READ!

10:30am Service Update

For the months of June and July, we are asking families to worship together during the 10:30am service. Childcare is not available during this time. Kids Bulletin and crayons are available in the auditorium for preschool and elementary children so they can connect with the sermon. We will have a room open for infants and toddlers to play while parents listen to/watch the service, and the Kids Zone will be open for more active children with the service playing. 

Family Sunday—July 1st—No Children’s Programming

Sunday, July 1st is a Family Sunday, which means there will be one service for everyone to worship together at 9am. Childcare will be provided for Infants through 3 year olds. 

August is Family Month!

That means we have one service each week at 9am and everyone worships together—no children’s programming. Childcare for infants through 3 years old is offered each week. 

Promotion Sunday will be September 9th

Due to the realignment of Family Life, and the creation of a Middle School program (6th- 8th grade), our regular “promotion” time for children has been switched from the summer to the fall. We’ll be having a special Open House on Sunday, August 26th to share the changes and give children an opportunity to meet their leaders and see their classrooms. Watch for more information this summer! 

 

HERE'S WHAT WE'LL BE TALKING ABOUT ON SUNDAY, JUNE 17TH— 

Elementary—God’s Spirit Renews
Galatians 5 & 6 (Fruit of the Spirit & Galatia) 

We learned this past week how God’s Spirit is spreading the Good News through believers and uniting them in different places. It’s exciting to see and know that this is how we eventually heard the Gospel. Praise Jesus! 

This week we’ll be talking about how the Holy Spirit changes believers from the inside out (renews us), and what that should look like in our behavior, conversation and life. 

We need to stop and consider what type of lives we are living. Would someone know that we love Jesus by the way we talk? Behave? Act towards others? If we are living lives controlled by the Holy Spirit, than people should see the fruit of the Spirit in us! 

June Bible Memory Verse: II Corinthians 5:5



 

Preschool—Jesus Gives Life
John 11 (Lazarus) 

Jesus got the message that His dear friend, Lazarus, was sick. Instead of going immediately to see and heal him, Jesus waited four days. When He got to Lazarus’ home, he was dead. But the story wasn’t over! Jesus was going to give life to His friend! This would show everyone that He has power over life and death. Jesus is the resurrection and the life for everyone who believes in Him!

2 Year Olds–God Takes Care of Me
I Kings 17 (Elijah and the Ravens)
Foundational Truth: God is with Me 

We continue looking at God’s Big Story and seeing how God is with individuals—just as He will be with us. This week we’ll hear about a man named Elijah. God used him to talk to a very bad king. Then God did some amazing things to take care of this man—birds brought his food! Wouldn’t you have loved to see that on youtube?! 

Our God cares for us in such awesome ways. How has He taken care of you and your family? I hope you take time to share these stories with your children. This will help them see that the God who took care of Elijah, will also take care of them today—no matter what the circumstance.
