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.
Love is in the air this month in Cornerstone Kids! And, it’s the kind of love that means much more than candy, red hearts and Valentines. Through great Bible teaching, worship, and with the help of our wonderful volunteers, our children will be learning to show love and kindness like Jesus did, all month long!
February is a great month for our preschoolers to focus on love – Jesus’ love for them and the importance of showing people around us how much we care about the m. They will learn that nothing can compare to the love that Jesus has for each one of us. Practice learning this month’s memory verse together as a family, “How wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” (Ephesians 3:18) It’s one of my favorites!
This month our elementary children will be going undercover to discover what kindness is really all about. Jesus showed kindness to all people – to the poor, the sick, the outcasts, the sinners and the tax collectors. Like detectives, we will be on the hunt to see what would happen if kindness didn’t seem so rare? What would happen if we decided to live out what Jesus said about showing others they are valuable? What would happen if we “Do to others as you want them to do to you.” (Luke 6:31)
