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.
The New Year is almost here, and we are excited and ready for all that our kids will be learning as we step into 2015! We’ve got 52 weeks worth of incredible Bible teaching and activities that will help your children grow deeper in their faith and more in love with our Heavenly Father. It starts this Sunday as our little ones in Pebble Path kick off January with the theme, “Help! I Need Somebody!” In Rock City we will be teaching our elementary children important faith skills as they learn about “Commitment”.
This month our preschool friends will discover through important Bible lessons that the blind man needed Jesus to see. The lame man needed Jesus to walk. The deaf man needed Jesus to hear. And the ten lepers needed Jesus to be healed. These men needed Jesus to do big things, and He did! Our children will learn that we all need Jesus, and He is there for us each and every day to love us and to help us. They will be learning the verse from Psalm 119:57, “You are everything I need.” You can practice saying it with them at home. What a great verse for all ages!
Sundays in January will be a great time of faith building for our elementary kids as they learn the importance of practicing their faith. By focusing on the virtue or life app of “Commitment” our children will grow in their understanding that it takes practice to know God more and to mature in their relationship with Him. We will encourage our kids to make a plan and to stick to the following spiritual disciplines or “faith skills” – HEAR, TALK, PRAY, LIVE. Each week this month we’ll learn to:
- Practice hearing what God says.
- Practice praying to God.
- Practice talking about God.
- Practice living for God.
What a great way to start the New Year! We hope you will make the commitment to be at Cornerstone on Sunday mornings in 2015. We have a special place in our hearts for your family and we want to cheer you and your kids on as you seek to grow closer to God and to one another.
