Kids: Week of Sept. 19, 2022

by Ashley Schmidt on September 20, 2022

Hello Fellow Oakwood Parents,

Take a minute this week and ask you kids about the verse we are focusing on this unit - Deuteronomy 6:5. Can your kid say it, share what it means to them or even sing it (to a snazzy tune!)? 

This week we will be in 2 Kings 4-6 looking at Elisha performing miracles. Gospel Project takes kids through the Bible chronologically over the course of three years and see how each “little” story connects back to Jesus and the overall narrative of Scripture. I encourage you to click the link above and explore it a little more.  

Here is what is going on this week:

Each child needs an updated consent form each year. If you haven’t already, please complete it. Paper copies are available at the Kid Min desk or you can find it here.
