Mission: Hope: Week of April 22, 2019
Apr 23, 2019

The Bible talks multiple times not only about children, but about adoption itself.  It is clear that adoption is dear to the heart of Christ and should be central to the mission of Christians globally. 

Here are 10 Bible verses about adoption that you can read, click HERE.

Preschool & Elementary School: Week of April 22, 2019
Apr 23, 2019

Here’s what we’ll be talking about on Sunday, April 28th 

Elementary—God is Gracious
Matthew 20 (Parable of the Workers in the Field) 

Showing grace means giving someone something wonderful that they don’t deserve. God is gracious, and shows grace to us, but His grace doesn’t always look like what we expect. In the parable of the workers in the vineyard / field, Jesus reminds listeners to approach God with gratitude and thankfulness for all He’s given because everything, including salvation and our next breath, is a gift from God. Jesus shows how God graciously gives to all of us as He chooses. 

This may not seem fair. No one in the parable of the workers in the field was dealt with fairly. Everyone got at least what he’d been promised. Though God’s grace doesn’t always look like what we expect, we can always be sure it’s His best for us. 

April Bible Verse: I John 4:9
 

 

Preschool—God is Worthy of Worship
Luke 17 (The Ten Lepers) 

During the time when Jesus lived on earth, leprosy was a disease that made people very sick. People didn’t want to catch leprosy, so they made everyone who had the disease live away from everyone else. One day Jesus came across 10 men with leprosy. They called out to Jesus to help them. So Jesus healed them! One of the ten lepers was so full of joy that he ran back to Jesus and began to worship Him. Jesus had healed him. Jesus was worthy of worship. God is worthy of our worship too! 

At Home Weekly Tru Wonder 

April Bible Verse: Psalm 119:76


  

2 Year Olds–Jesus is the Good News
Matthew 28 (The Great Commission) 

Before Jesus went back to heaven, He gave the disciples an assignment: they were to spread the Good News to all people everywhere. We have that same assignment today—tell others that Jesus is the Good News!

Wednesday Night Community, April 24th– Last Night!

As we finish our “Diary of a Godly Kid” study we’ll see David shows God’s love to others—even when they are trying to kill him! You see, a godly kid loves others. This is the exact opposite of what our selfish, human nature wants us to do—especially when someone is being mean to us. 

Our Preschoolers will finish their year crossing the Jordan River into God’s Promised Land. Yay! (Joshua 3-4)

 

PHASE DAY – May the 4th—Be with us!

We’ll have special opportunities to talk with your preschooler and elementary students in FAITH STEPS and TABLE TALK. Have more questions about each Waypoint? Let us know. We’d be glad to share more information. Click HERE to register your family.
