Hello everyone! Hope you're having a great week!

This Wednesday the middle school students will be starting their journey through the Gospel. We're talking about how awesome God is by looking at some awesome facts about creation. We'll also talk about the greatest gift, the most awesome gift, God gave all of us. Be sure to ask your student about why God is so awesome!

And on Sunday we're going to look at the word "With" and how that's different than "For". A minor word has a lot of meaning in it. We're going to see why we do our walk with Jesus "With" others and we can't do it "For" others.

Special Offering Project for Feed My Starving Children!

This past Sunday, your preschool – elementary age child(ren) should have received a special offering project tube filled with Mini M&Ms. From September thru December, our Kids Quest offerings are being used to feed hungry kids around the world through Feed My Starving Children. It only takes $80 to feed one child for an entire year! 

It is our hope and prayer that through this project, kids will

1) Pray for children who are hungry
2) Tell others about Feed My Starving Children and
3) Give their offerings to Help feed hungry children 

If your child wasn’t able to be here this past week and would like to participate, you can pick up your FMSC offering container at the Kids Quest desk.

Here’s what we’ll be talking about on Sunday, October 21st

Elementary—God is in Control
Numbers 9-20 (Wandering in the Wilderness) 

We pick up this week with the children of Israel camped at the base of Mt. Sinai, ready to start out of the Promised Land. God’s presence leads them in the form of a pillar of cloud during the day and a pillar of fire at night. God is in control, and the Israelites had to depend on Him completely—for food, for water, and to show the way. 

The wilderness was hard, so the Israelites complained—a lot! Although they complained, God still took care of them. When they got close to the Promised Land and the spies told them how wonderful it was, instead of trusting God to take care of them, they were afraid of the giants and complained some more. 

God is in control. He knows what’s best for us—even if we don’t understand at the time. We can trust God completely and follow no matter where He leads us.

 At Home Weekly Tru Story

October Bible Verse: Jeremiah 9:24

 _______________________________________________________________

Preschool—God Leads
Exodus 13 & 14, Numbers 9 (Pillar of Cloud & Fire) 

After the children of Israel left Egypt, God lead them on a very specific path. During the day, God lead them by a pillar of cloud, and at night He lead them by a pillar of fire. Sometimes the pillar was in front of them, showing them exactly where they should go. Other times, it was behind, protecting them from the Egyptian army. No matter where it was or what time of day, a pillar was always there. God was always with them and leading them exactly where they should go. 

We may not have pillars of clouds or fire to follow today, but God is still with us, and leading us exactly where He wants us to go. 

At Home Weekly Tru Wonder

October Bible Verse: Luke 1:49

 _______________________________________________________________

2 Year Olds–God Cares for Me
Exodus 16, Numbers 11 (Manna) Foundational Truth: God made Me

A month into their journey to the Promised Land, God’s people ran out of food. Instead of trusting God to take care of them, they started to complain and wish they could go back to Egypt. 

God had a plan to take care of them in an amazing way. He sent bread from heaven and birds to feed them! God reminded them every day that He would take care of them. He will take care of us too!

Kids Quest Offering—Feed My Starving Children

$80 feeds 1 child for an entire year. Only $29.91 more until we can feed 3 kids for an entire year.

Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes Available!

If you didn’t get a chance to pick up a shoebox yet for OCC, we should be getting a few more this week. Plan to get yours this Sunday at the back of the Worship Center. This is a great way for your kids to learn about helping others in a very real way. Please return filled shoeboxes to the OCC booth at Oakwood by Sunday, November 11th.

 _______________________________________________________________

Wednesday Night, October 17th~

  • Preschoolers will be learning about Noah—loading the big boat!
  • In Elementary, we’ll be learning about the Incredible Faith of Gideon (Mr. 300 Man Army). God saw beyond a farmer who was hiding out in a field. God saw a “mighty warrior”—who Gideon could be if he trusted God. With God, nothing is impossible!

 

Have a great week~

Hello hello!

This weeks is a new series for both Wednesday and Sunday meetings. We're back, fresh from Fall Retreat, with more discussions on how we Love God, Love Others, and Make Disciples.

Wednesday we'll be serving the Touched Twice volunteers with a service project and encouragement. We'll also be talking some about what it means to serve others. Another part of our evening will be introducing the summer Missions Trip we'll be taking. Details of the trip will be sent out later, but this will get the ball rolling for the students. Talk to Myles if you have questions.
