Middle School: Week of May 13, 2019
May 13, 2019

Hello everyone! Hope you're having a fantastic start to the week.

This Sunday we're going to be finishing up our look at Extravagant Love by hearing from Mo Isom and Bob Goff about love in hard times and loving on a practical level. We're watching them speak through a video series called "Reckless Love" which is all about how we're loved recklessly by God and, in turn, we can love others recklessly. Be sure to ask your students what they saw Mo and Bob do!


Don't forget about the Water Park Fun event on Friday! We'd love to have your student there to swim, enjoy waterslides, and get to know the new 6th grade class moving into the middle school room in a couple weeks! Register HERE!



It's that time of year! Time to put logs on the fire, make s'mores, and enjoy the gorgeous weather while singing student-led worship songs and playing fun games.

So, grab a sweatshirt, loosen up your vocal chords, and join us!

Register HERE!

See you soon!

Mission: Hope: Week of May 13, 2019
May 13, 2019


The church must play a critical and unique role in the adoption and foster care journey. Not only can the church proclaim the love of God and a deeper understanding of our adoption into His forever family through faith in Christ, it must also seek to intentionally create a healthy adoption culture where lasting healing can take place. In this short video, Dr. Purvis shares what this can look like and challenges us to be a catalyst for this in our church. Click HERE to view the video.

Preschool & Elementary School: Week of May 13, 2019
May 13, 2019

Here’s what we’ll be talking about on Sunday, May 19th 

Elementary—Jesus is the Good News
Matthew 28 (Great Commission) 

Since God first promised Adam and Eve He would send a Rescuer, people have been waiting for Him to come. Jesus is the Rescuer! Knowing that Jesus died for our sins and came back to life so that we can have a relationship with God is Good News. That is the message that we have all been commissioned to share with the world. In fact, sharing the Good News is the last thing that Jesus told His disciples before He went back to heaven. 

As followers of Jesus, we are to tell people about Jesus, baptize them and teach them to observe and do all that Jesus commanded.

May Bible Verse: Isaiah 30:18


Preschool—Jesus is Worthy
John 12 (Mary Worships) 

One day Jesus went to the home of His friends—Lazarus and his two sisters, Mary and Martha. They made a special dinner for Jesus. While they were eating, Mary came to Jesus and poured expensive perfume all over His feet. She began to wash His feet with her hair. This was the greatest honor and form of worship that Mary could give to Jesus. Mary did this because she knew that Jesus is worthy of our worship.

May Bible Verse: Psalm 57:10


2 Year Olds– God Listens to our Prayers
Acts 12:1-19 (Peter Freed from Prison) 

Jesus’ disciples were busy telling everyone the Good News. King Herod wasn’t happy to see so many people choosing to follow Jesus. So the wicked king ordered his soldiers to capture Peter and put him in prison. Heavy chains and 16 guards were used to ensure that Peter would not escape. But the people of God were praying. The Lord heard their prayers and sent an angel to free Peter from prison! 

Just as Jesus heard and answered the prayers of His people for Peter, He will hear and answer our prayers too! Knowing this and believing this should help us feel safe and secure in every situation.
