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.
One of the best New Year’s resolutions you can make for your family and for your children in 2016 is to bring them to Cornerstone on Sunday mornings. For the next 52 Sundays, your children will learn important Bible stories. They will memorize key scripture passages. They will learn to apply God’s word to their everyday lives. They will learn to pray and to listen to God. They will learn how to share their faith with others. They will be prayed over, poured into and loved on by some incredible volunteers, and their hearts will be shaped and molded for Christ. I guarantee it! You, as parents, will also receive a year’s worth of devotional material to encourage “God Time” at home and a weekly “Parent Cue” to keep you informed of all that your children are learning with us with cues to help you connect with your kids spiritually each day. We hope you will join us as often as you can in 2016. We don’t want your kids to miss a thing! Here’s what’s happening in Cornerstone Kids in January!
Our little ones will be learning about the awesome power of Jesus this month. He is powerful enough to do anything! We will look at some of the miracles He performed and will learn from Matthew 19:26 that “With God all things are possible.” We are very excited to introduce our new monthly placemat! This great tool is designed to sit on your table all month long. It gives you easy access to each month’s teaching as well as questions to ask your child each week and hand motions to our Pebble Path Bible verse. The placemat also has a space for preschoolers to draw and a fun game or activity to play together. Our new placemat will be available on January 10.

Get ready to power up! Our elementary children will be learning about Self-Control from the book of Proverbs this month. In an arcade-like setting featuring characters and images from popular children’s video games, our kids will learn from God’s word how to tap into the His awesome power to learn to pause, to select their words carefully, to know when to stop, and to use God’s word to guide their thoughts. As your children learn the importance of self-control, our prayer is that they will grow more and more in the character of God and will reflect His image and His love to the world around them.
