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 has been such a great summer for fun and faith in Cornerstone Kids! We have enjoyed seeing so many of our Cornerstone children participating in our Summer Serve Days for 4th & 5th Graders, attending our “Equip: Understanding the Bible” series and at WinShape Camps for Communities. We hope you are seeing God at work in the hearts and lives of your children as they grow to know Him more and to learn what it means to truly follow Him.

Sunday mornings this summer have continued to give us special opportunities to nurture and shape faith in your children. We have loved watching our little ones get excited about their weekly visits to the “Creation Station” in Pebble Path. In Rock City, our elementary children are learning about faith through the life of Paul in our “Where in the World” summer teaching series. We hope that your children have come home each week eager to share what they are learning with you!
All aboard! Each week this summer your little ones hop aboard the “Creation Station” to experience the wonder and joy of all that God made. Our Sunday mornings are filled with great worship, Bible teaching and fun as we help our preschoolers see that God made everything – the sun, moon, stars, planets, clouds, rain, oceans, animals, flowers, you and me! We hope you are collecting their weekly train car craft. It’s a great way to help them remember the true story of creation. To see all that your preschooler is learning in the “Creation Station” this summer, we hope you will take a few minutes to watch this.

Each Sunday morning this summer we are exploring God’s word to learn more about faith. We are talking about faith as “believing that what Jesus did can change me.” Through some wonderful Bible lessons, worship, group discussion and activities we have enjoyed the opportunity to experience the life-changing story of Jesus and to help our kids understand what it means to put their faith in Him. Ask your Rock City kids about their passports. They have been working on these each Sunday, and they can’t wait to share them with you at the end of summer. To see all that your children are learning in our “Where in the World” summer series, watch this great video!
