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.
This Sunday we will baptize close to 20 children and youth at our Baptism Celebration. This is one of my favorite Cornerstone events. It’s so exciting to see and to know that God is at work in the lives of our children, drawing them to Himself, and shaping and molding them along their faith journey. This is an amazing celebration of new life in Christ. It’s also a time to honor parents who take every opportunity to live out and grow faith in their children, and to declare our gratitude to the many dedicated volunteers who serve our children and youth with love and passion for Christ. What a way to kick off a new month! We hope you will celebrate with us!
In Pebble Path this month, the Happy Helpers Club is returning to teach us to remember to help others. God commanded us to think of others before ourselves, and with the help of friends like Ruth, Boaz, Nehemiah, and Aaron, we will learn how to be like Jesus and lend a hand to others in their time of need. That’s why this month’s memory verse is so important and great for putting others first – Ephesians 4:32, “Be kind and loving to each other.”
In Rock City in May, your elementary students will be learning how to keep themselves from getting “Tangled” with this month’s virtue – honesty. Honesty is choosing to be truthful in whatever you say and do. Honesty is not just about telling the truth, it’s about living out the truth. When your life reflects Christ, the result is a person of integrity who is honest with others and honest with God. So, our Bible verse for this month, Psalm 119:29, can also be a prayer to help your children live honestly, “Keep me from cheating and telling lies. Be kind and teach me your law.”
