5th & 6th Grade News: Week of February 12, 2018
Feb 13, 2018

Happy midweek!

This Wednesday Quest 56ers will be hanging out with Nate Stenholtz and the rest of the Q56 team to discuss Jesus as the Risen Lord. We will be going over the gospel message and what it means to follow Jesus as a ruler. This is, potentially, a time where your child may make a decision to follow Jesus, so please be praying for each one of the students as they hear the gospel.
 
And on Sunday Quest 56ers will be continuing their journey with the rest of Oakwood on their Community Bible Experience reading, but in our own Q56 way.  This week is Judges chapter 4, where we will look at the story of Deborah and find how God is moving even in tough and crazy situations. Take some time to read through this chapter with your child over the week :)
 
 

 

SpringHill Day Camp—Early Bird Registration is February 14th!

Each summer, Oakwood Church hosts SpringHill Day Camp for one week. It’s an adventure camp in our own back yard!

Kids going into 1st -6th grade (yes, we’ve extended the age limit!) attend camp, Monday-Friday from 9am-4pm. The days are filled with tons of fun activities—Euro Bungie, the Flying Squirrel, Rock Wall Climbing, Water slides, the Giant Swing—just to name a few! 

Every day kids enjoy large group worship, skits and teaching from God’s Word. They join small groups to discuss what they are learning, and each activity is followed up with time talking about what God is teaching them.

Preschool & Elementary News: Week of February 12, 2018
Feb 13, 2018

Here’s what we’ll be talking about on February 18th 

Elementary—God Redeems Us
Nehemiah 1-4: 6-9 (Nehemiah) 

The city of Jerusalem, and God’s temple, were destroyed by King Nebuchadnezzar and the Babylonians, all because God’s people had disobeyed His covenant. God chastened His people for their sin, just as He promised. But God also promised that if they returned to Him and obeyed His commands, He would gather them up and bring them back to the place He had chosen as a His dwelling (Jerusalem). 

The destruction of Jerusalem and the temple was a hard blow to the Israelites. The people loved their city and especially the temple that represented God’s pleasure with them and His presence among them. 

God saw and heard His people. He redeemed and restored both things and brought His people back into relationship with Him. 

God will do the same for us! It doesn’t matter what we’ve done, God still loves us and wants a relationship with us. All we need to do is confess what we’ve done and reach out to Him. He will hear and forgive!

February Bible Memory Verse: Proverbs 19:21

 

 

Preschool—God is Powerful
II Kings 4:1-7, 38-44 (Elisha’s Miracles) 

In ancient times, God used prophets to speak to His people. Prophets boldly spoke the Word of the Lord and demonstrated His power through signs and wonders. 

Elisha was such a man/prophet. God sent him to minister to the wicked kings and people of Israel. Elisha performed miracles, pronounced judgment and defeated enemies as proof he was sent by the Lord. 

In the chapters we are studying this week, we see how God was taking care of individual people and their daily needs. God used His power through Elisha to miraculously provide for them. 

What can we learn from this? Does God still show His power today? When was the last time He did something for you and your family?

February Bible Memory Verse: Psalm 100:5

 

2 Year Olds – Jesus is Powerful
(John 9:1-12)
Healing of the Blind ManFoundational Truth: God Loves Me

This story shares a precious truth. Here is a man who was born blind. Society said that he or his parents must have done something bad to deserve the “punishment” of blindness. Then Jesus comes along and challenges their thinking. The blindness had a God-given purpose—so God’s power could be seen! 

Jesus loved the man so much and wanted him and those watching to know about His love and power over everything—even blindness. He is just as powerful today!

Kids Quest Offering

Our offerings this past Sunday came to $15.88 bringing our total offerings this year to $76.59! 

We were able to donate 152 containers of Play-Doh to help kids at American Family Children’s Hospital in Madison. This Play-Doh was prayed over and blessed. We know that God can use anything to reach the hearts of kids with His love—even Play-Doh! 

Now, we’ll need to look for our next offering project. What will it be? Send your kids’ ideas my way!

 

Have a very happy and blessed Valentine’s Day!
