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.
September – it’s a wrap, and what an awesome month it was in Cornerstone Kids! Our little ones learned the simple but powerful truth that “my God will take care of me.” I loved walking past the rooms in the Pebble Path hallway hearing the sweet sounds of little voices, as young as 2 years old, reciting Philippians 4:19, “My God will meet all of your needs.” Through the story of Nehemiah, our Rock City kids learned about Initiative and how God and His Spirit in us gives us the power to “See It! Do It!” and to “Work at everything you do with all of your heart as if working for the Lord.” Colossians 3:23. Parents – your children are learning and growing each and every Sunday they spend with us!! We can’t wait for October!
We are bringing back the popular theme of Super Kids in October with Super Kids II. Our little ones will learn to be strong and courageous, because our great God is always with us. We will be learning about Gideon, Miriam, Hezekiah and Daniel – each of these stories is about a person in the Bible who God helped to be brave. We’ve got some fun crafts, games and plenty of super-hero activities to help our preschoolers learn to “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid … for the Lord your God goes with you.” Deuteronomy 31:6.
We will spend all of October helping our children see who God meant for them to be so they can make a difference. Through the life of Timothy, our elementary kids will learn about Individuality. We will help them begin to understand that God made them and has given them unique abilities to love and to serve others that will have a lasting impact. We want them to walk away from this month encouraged by this powerful verse, “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young. Set an example for the believers in what you say and in how you live” 1 Timothy 4:12a. With the theme In Focus we will help them discover how to tap into their God-given potential and to find their special purpose for now and for the future.
