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.
Remember Valentine’s Day when you were younger?
I do. Depending on how crazy life was at the time, my parents would usually rush out the night before with me and my siblings in the car and let us pick out the valentines we wanted to give to our friends at school the next day. It was a big deal to us as kids. Which stickers are the prettiest? Which friend gets this one? Oooh, I like those red heart lollipops…for me to eat, of course. (I had a candy problem back then.)
But over the years, God has relentlessly taught me how His love is completely different from the obligatory and merit-based love we often experience and work so hard for in our relationships. We’re always God’s valentine!
So what an opportunity it is this month, and especially on February 14, to remind your kids how much God loves them unconditionally. That kind of love is worth sharing.
In keeping with this theme of love, your children in Pebble Path will be exploring “Mission L.O.V.E.” and learning one of the most important commandments of being a disciple, “Love each other as I have loved you.” (John 15:12 NIV) Each week, your child’s teachers and helpers will be sharing Bible stories that show how Jesus loved and spent time with all people, especially those that were looked down on or different.
Take Home Pages:
In Rock City this month, your elementary students will be hearing about Peter’s life and watching how his faith grew as he struggled to follow Jesus. They will be learning that faith is “believing in what you can’t see because of what you can see,” a definition that comes from, Hebrews 11:1, “Faith is being certain of what we hope for. It is being certain of what we do not see.” (NIrV)

Did you know…
Cornerstone Kids will also have hardback NIrV Adventure Bibles available in the bookstore for $20 and paperback NIrV study bibles for $5. The NIrV version is intended as an easier read, so it’s great for kids. We hope you will continue to encourage your child to bring his/her Bible to church and use your take home sheets to study with them at home.
