Kids Quest Preschool for July 30th – Serve God. Esther 2-9 

While preschoolers may not understand what it means to “serve” someone, they are beginning to understand what it means to “help.” Try to show little ones that when they choose to do good things for others, and help them, they are really serving God, and that makes Him happy—just like the person being helped. 

We’ll be reading the story of Esther next Sunday. It’s difficult at this phase for little ones to distinguish between imaginary and real, but here’s an example about a real girl becoming a queen! Use God’s Word to tell children how God honored Esther’s obedience and protected not only her, but also all of her people. We need to obey God and help others too. When we do that, we are serving God.
 

Preschool Verse for July – Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)


This is our last week working on learning this verse. I pray that you see your child as the masterpiece that God created him/her to be!

 

 










This past Sunday
it was such a delight to watch our little ones build walls as they modeled the story of Nehemiah. I also heard one of our 2 year olds exclaim, “I’m building a tower for Jesus!” God is working in the littlest hearts.


Offering Update

Our offering this week came to $38.55 bringing our total to $641.33

We have been challenged by someone in Oakwood to give a total of $2000 in our offerings by Christmas to help Feed My Starving Children. This individual will match our offerings dollar for dollar up to that amount for a possible grand total of $4000! Isn’t that awesome?! It is definitely a God-sized challenge, but as we learned with the well project, God can do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine. Once again, we are asking God to His mighty work in and through our kids to do Kingdom work around the world. I love seeing our kids love God and love others with their offerings!

 

Family Sundays are Coming!

Every Sunday in August, and the first Sunday in September, the entire Oakwood family worships together at 9am. Every Sunday, there is a children’s sermon, and kids have a special bulletin just for them. Childcare is provided for children up to 3 years of age. We’ll start up our Sunday and Wednesday programming again in September.

 

Family Life Open House—August 27th

Plan now to attend the Family Life Open House right after church on Sunday, August 27th. You can check out the new wall murals in the classrooms and get information about what’s happening this fall.

 

Have a wonderful week!

Kids Quest Elementary for July 30th – Best Friends for Life:
Friend Sunday!
 

All summer we’ve been talking about friendship. The kids have posted the names of friends on the bicycle wheels and have been praying for them. This week we’re encouraging them to invite their friends to church for a special morning filled with fun activities and spending time together learning about Jesus. We hope that kids use this opportunity to put into practice all that we’ve been learning this summer, and grow in their love for Jesus, love for others, and make disciples. 

Have you wondered how your kids are studying God’s Word in Large Group Time each week? Here are some photos of the Squad Groups studying Scripture. It brought such joy to my heart to see and hear this yesterday, and I hope it does the same for you.  

 

Elementary Verse for July – Colossians 4:5 (TLB)


This is our last week learning Colossians 4:5. I pray that we will all make the most of every opportunity God gives us to share His love with others!

THIS WEEK:


This week Carl Lentz will be teaching! We're looking at the "Surrender" series where we discuss the four areas of our life that we need to surrender in order to follow Jesus. The summer will start with discussion about surrendering our stuff, move into surrendering our status, then a talk about surrendering our sin, and end with surrendering our selves to God.


This whole series will be a way for Quest 56ers to see the Gospel and what we need to lose in order to gain from God. Please be sure to ask your students what they're being challenged to surrender each week through the summer.
