Elementary Lesson September 24th–God is the Lord (Pt 1)
Exodus 2-4 

This coming Sunday we’ll meet another person that God included in His story of rescue and redemption—Moses. God saves Moses as a baby, he grows up in Pharaoh’s palace, and runs away to Midian. It was while Moses was watching sheep in the desert that God got his attention and shared His plan for his life. 

Just like Moses, God has a plan for each of us—and our kids! He wants to be Lord of our lives. He wants us to recognize His voice and follow, no matter where or what the call. How will we respond?

Elementary Verse for September – Isaiah 40:28

 

Preschool Lesson for September 24th – God is Powerful
Genesis 17:15-22; 21:1-7 

This past week we met Abram, a man God called to leave his country, his people and his father’s house, and go to a place that He would show him. God chose Abram to be the father of a great nation—God’s people! Next week we’ll learn how God made a covenant with Abraham—a very special promise—that he and Sarah would have a child even though they were very old. Only God could do this!

Preschool Verse for September – Psalm 145:13b

 

2 Year Olds – God Made People (Genesis 1:26-31; 2:4-25)
Foundational Truth: God Made Me

We’ll spend the next two weeks learning that God made people. We are made in God’s image. God created us to have relationship with Him and with others. 

This is going to be fun! Helping children understand that God made each of them—different, yet the same in many ways. Don’t we have an amazing God?! Yes we do!!!

Wednesday Night in Kids Quest

We continue our study in Acts 3 this week with another example of God doing amazing things through those who believe and follow Him. God wants to do amazing things through us too! In our Project Station we’ll be assembling boxes for our annual Operation Christmas Child campaign—another way we can live out our theme verse (Mark 16:15) and make a difference in the lives of kids who need Jesus.

5th & 6th Grade News: Week of September 18, 2017

Hey everyone!

Wednesday is just around the corner! We're going to be continuing our dive into Spiritual Gifts by talking through the gifts of Wisdom and Knowledge. With our small groups we'll dig up Scriptures about what the gifts are, talk through the gifts together, and see if these gifts are something we've been gifted with. Be sure to ask your student about the "Parent Page" that I will be handing out to everyone to work through with their families during the week.  

Also, please review the Wednesday night Quest 56 Rules with your student.  I will be going over these rules with the students this week.

Sunday we'll be looking at another parable: the Parable of the Talents. This parable is one of my favorites and provides thoughts on how we're to use the gifts God gives us. This parable ties nicely in with our discussions on Wednesday nights, so I would highly encourage you to check out both Sunday and Wednesday group meetings!

See you soon!

CELEBRATE THE WIN

As we seek to energize kids to love God, love others and make disciples, it’s also important that we celebrate “the wins”—those times when we see people/kids living out our mission. 

God loves to celebrate, and we should too. Where have you seen “wins” in your family this week? I encourage you to be on the lookout for them, big and small, and celebrate them all. I’ll be doing the same here and keep you posted. 

Have fun celebrating the “wins” in your family this week!

KIDS QUEST OFFERINGS

Our offering this past Sunday came to $92.78, bringing our new total to $777.46. Wow! We are off to a fantastic start! 

Next time you’re in the Kids Zone, check out the Offering Meter on stage. We’ll add birdseed every week to match our offerings. Once we reach our first $1000, we’ll add another Offering Meter to track our next $1000! Yay God! 

WEDNESDAY NIGHT IN KIDS QUEST - JOIN US!

We’re doing something just a tad different this year on Wednesday nights. We’re splitting up our preschoolers and elementary kids to give each more of an age specific experience. The only difference for parents is to check in and pick-up your preschooler (3 years thru Kindergarten) by the 4s classroom. Elementary kids will still be checked in and picked up by the Kids Zone. 

While our programs are splitting up, our focus will be the same—the book of Acts. Jesus gave every person who loves and follows Him a mission—to share the Good News with everyone! We’ll be looking at the early church and how God used them to see how we can continue living God’s mission today. Our theme verse for the fall is Mark 16:15—“Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.” 

We hope your kids can join us! 

WEEKLY SUNDAY LESSONS:

Elementary Lesson September 17th–God is Worthy of Worship
Genesis 11-12; 15

God designed each of us with a natural desire to worship, but it’s what or whom we worship that defines us. God is worthy of our worship, and He created us to worship Him. 

Much has happened on the earth since God made Adam and Eve. Sin had entered the world, and God promised to send a Rescuer. Adam and Eve had many children who grew up and forgot God. This made God very sad (Gen 6:6), and He sent a flood to destroy the earth and everyone in it—except for Noah, his family and the animals on the ark (Gen 7:7-21). 

After the flood, Noah’s sons had children, who had children. Genesis 10:32 says “From these the nations spread out over the earth after the flood.” 

The people in Genesis 11 worshipped the sun, moon and stars—but they didn’t stop there. In verse 4, we read that the people said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we can make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.” 

This made God angry, so He confused their language and scattered them over the whole earth. 

A man named Abram lived in a city nearby. In Genesis 12, God told Abram to leave his country, his people and his father’s house and go to a land that He would show him. God singled out Abram and his family so He could have a people for Himself, who would worship only Him, and through who He would send the Rescuer. 

Elementary Verse for September – Isaiah 40:28

 

Preschool Lesson for September 17th – God Keeps His Promises
Genesis 1-2:1-9; 15; 17:1-8 

Last week we learned how Adam and Eve sinned, and their relationship with God was broken. But God loved us so much that He made a promise to Adam and Eve—to send a Rescuer who would make a way for all of us to have a relationship with God once again. 

This week, we see how God keeps His promise and chooses a man who lived in a land that worshipped other gods, to have a relationship with Him. His name was Abram. God called Abram to leave his country, his people and his father’s house, and go to a place that He would show him. You see, God wanted to establish a holy nation—where the people would live in such a way that other nations would know that the God of Abraham was the one true God—the holy God. 

Jesus, our Rescuer, would come through this chosen people.

Preschool Verse for September – Psalm 145:13b

 

2 Year Olds – God Made Our World (Genesis 1-2:3)
Foundational Truth: God Made Me

We’ll spend two weeks on each of the concepts we’re learning from God’s Word. This means we get to explore more of God’s amazing creation! Kids love animals and bugs, birds and plants. Help them discover some new things in our world this week, and be sure they know Who made each one of them—God!

 

Thank you for choosing to worship with us at Oakwood!
