Preschool and Elementary School Ministries Blog: Week of September 24, 2018
Sep 25, 2018

Safety is always a priority at Oakwood.

This coming Sunday, September 30th, we’ll be holding a fire drill during both services to make sure that children and volunteers are prepared in the event of a fire. No alarms will be sounded. We’ll simply be walking through what to do and where to go if there was a fire. We’ll schedule a similar walk-through on a Wednesday night coming up.


Here’s what we’ll be talking about on Sunday, September 30—

Elementary—God Blesses
Genesis 25-33 (Jacob) 

In the Bible, a blessing was often tied to a birthright. In ancient times, the birthright was a very sacred thing. It gave the oldest son the largest portion of the inheritance as well as the position of spiritual leader of the family. In Abraham’s family, the birthright meant the promised Messiah would come through his family. 

This week we’ll meet Abraham’s son, Isaac, and his twin sons, Jacob & Esau. Although Jacob and Esau were twins, they were very different, and they didn’t always get along. The blessing was a big issue—for Jacob. Although Jacob wasn’t the oldest, he wanted God’s blessing. But, instead of waiting for God to work, Jacob took things into his own hands! 

God works things out for His good purpose and plan in spite of what we do. God brought blessing to the life of Jacob, and God will bless us too. I’m so grateful!

September Bible Verse: Deuteronomy 7:9


Preschool—God Loves Faith
Genesis 12-17 (Abraham) 

God loves faith. What is faith? Confidently trusting God will do what He says and obeying Him no matter what. 

God called Abraham to a life of faith. God told him to leave his home and go to a new land that God would show him. Abraham obeyed God and went. God made Abraham a special promise that He would bless him and make his family into a great nation.  Through Abraham’s family, God would bless the entire world! Abraham was very old and didn’t have any children, but God promised that one day there would be so many people in his family it would be like trying to count the stars. Abraham had faith in God and believed God would do what He promised.

At Home Weekly Tru Wonder

September Bible Verse: Psalm 33:1


2 Year Olds–God Made People
Genesis 1-2 (Adam & Eve) Foundational Truth: God made Me 

We’re on our second week learning that God made people. God created a human couple, and walked, talked and had a perfect relationship with them. He entrusted them with the ministry of overseeing His creation. 

Unfortunately, this perfect relationship was broken. Because of God’s holiness, He extends His mercy to mankind. Through Christ, we can have a relationship with God! 

What new things have you discovered about your 2 year old lately? What new things have they discovered about themselves and God’s great big world? I love watching kids at this phase become more confident in their abilities. Enjoy every moment!

Women's Thursday Afternoon Small Group // Fall 2018
Sep 20, 2018

Lord, Teach Me to Study the Bible 

This studyby well-known Bible-teacher Kay Arthur, will lead us to examine Scripture and specifically mark the text to unlock its meaning. Our goals will be to understand what we are reading, recognize key words and concepts, discern God’ s purpose for the passage of Scripture and apply life-changing truths to everyday life. 

This is a very practical, hands-on, learn-by-doing Bible study. Biblical text and space to write insights are included in the book. Bring a pen, a few colored pencils... and a prayerful heart to complete each study and experience the Bible’ s life-changing power. 

When: Thursday afternoons, October 11-December 13 (NOT November 22) 

1:00-2:30 p.m. 
At Melissa Whitehead’s home 

Suggested donation: $9
