This is a great way to make sure your child understands what salvation and baptism are all about before taking that next step on their faith journey. Sign up HERE.

Here’s what we’ll be talking about on Sunday, June 24th 

Elementary—God is Hope
I & II Thessalonians (Letter to the Thessalonians) 

Paul continues his travels to tell people the Good News about Jesus, and they bring him to the city of Thessalonica (Acts 17). Some of the people believed what Paul told them, but others didn’t, and they caused so much trouble, Paul had to leave before he could teach the new believers all that they needed to know. 

Because Paul was so concerned for these new believers, he wrote two letters to them (I & II Thessalonians). He knew they would face hard times because of their faith. Paul’s letters reminded the Thessalonians that God is hope, even in difficult times. 

We experience hard times today as well. Paul’s words can encourage us not to get discouraged and give up. The reason we can keep on going is because we have hope in God and the promises found in His Word.

Preschool—Jesus Knows Me
John 21 (Breakfast for Peter) 

After Jesus rose from the dead, and before He went back to heaven, He spent some time with His disciples—making time to have breakfast with them! 

Peter, one of Jesus’ disciples had been through many experiences with Jesus. Jesus knew everything about Peter—the good and the bad—and Jesus loved Peter anyway and had a special plan for his life. 

Jesus knows us too—the good and the bad—and loves us anyway. He has a special plan for you and your kids too. All we need to do is love and follow Him.

2 Year Olds–God is With Me
I Kings 19 (Elijah on the Mountain)
Foundational Truth: God is with Me 

We’ve been learning about Elijah. God took care of Elijah. He sent food when he was hungry. This week we’ll learn how God kept Elijah safe on a mountain. Even though bad and scary things happened, Elijah knew that God was with him and would keep him safe no matter what happened. 

Knowing that they are loved and safe is very important for little ones. Helping them understand that God loves them and that He is with them, no matter what, is such a foundational truth on their faith journey. May they understand and hold fast to this truth the rest of their lives!
