Here’s what’s happening this month at Cornerstone Kids. You will find information about what the kids are learning, preview videos, take home materials and more.
“In everything I say, in everything I do, I want to bring glory only to You….” Some of you may be familiar with these lyrics from Camp Cornerstone 2011, “The Big Apple Adventure”. Almost two years later, we’re still letting it ring through the speakers of Rock City as we learn this month about peace!
Peace is proving you care more about each other than about winning an argument, and it’s also a very important part of God’s character. When our relationship with God was broken through sin, He sacrificed His own son to restore our relationship and offer the ultimate peace of salvation through Christ. Because of this, we know that God wants us to reflect peace in our relationships with others by living in a way that shows we care more about each other than about being right.
As you bring your children in to Rock City this month, take a moment to look at the messy art hanging above the stage or the spin art during the arrival activities. These will serve as reminders to all of us that peace can get messy sometimes, but it’s worth the risk! During our large group time, we will also have a special visit each week from our peacemaking superhero, The Peaceanator, who will teach us how to clean up our messy relationships and learn to “Fight for Peace.”
In Pebble Path this month, our little ones will be learning as well about the immeasurable love of Christ. “Can you measure it?” is the theme and a question we will be asking each week to help your children understand the greatness of God’s love! Our theme song this month is called “God’s Love Don’t Stop!” and is a great reminder for all children that God loves us no matter what. Each week your child will be listening to Bible stories and making crafts that will reinforce their memory verse, “How wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” Ephesians 3:18 NIV
Our goal each Sunday, through teaching, Bible stories, music, activities and take home materials, is to help each child who visits Cornerstone Church become more like Christ through His love and learning about Him. Our Parent Page is a great resource to explore our curriculum, weekly take home sheets and Biblical advice to encourage you as you lead your children in their relationship with Christ. To listen to the music often featured in Rock City, please visit amberskyrecords.com to download your child’s favorite songs!
We hope you will take some time this month to ask your child, “What did you learn at church today?” and see firsthand what God’s love is doing in their heart!
