Kids: Week of Sept. 5, 2022

by Ashley Schmidt on September 06, 2022

I love fall. The cooler weather, return of routine and pumpkin spice! It is also a time to start fresh, make new goals and program kickoffs!

Oakwood has a team of almost 50 Kids Ministry volunteers that have been busy behind the scenes and are excited to lead your kids this year!

This week we will resume programing with our Gospel Project curriculum. Kids get to go through the Bible chronologically during 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.

Our first unit is in 1 Kings – Sin leads us away from God. Kids will be dwelling in Deuteronomy 6:4-5 and I encourage you to read it with your kids and keep the card (that will be sent home) somewhere your kids can see it (e.g., your car, bathroom mirror or even fridge). 

Here is what is going on this week:

Wednesday Night Community 6:30-8 p.m. | Birth – 5th grade

  • Kids 3 years and older will dive into 1 Kings 12-13: Jeroboam
  • Remember the Café is open, serving pizza and sodas this week!

Sunday 9 a.m. Kids Programming | Birth – 5th grade

  • Elijah Served as a Prophet (1 Kings 16-18)

Sunday 10:30 a.m. Kids Small Group | Birth - Kindergarten

  • New this fall!
  • Preschoolers and kindergarteners can be a part of small group. They will play and have age-appropriate activities and Bible lessons.
  • Small Group will not be the same as 9 a.m. programming and is suitable for kids coming to second hour or for kids staying both services.
    • Please let the check-in team know if your child is staying both hours.
