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.
It has been a wonderful summer in Cornerstone Kids! We have so enjoyed the time we spent with your children on Sunday mornings, at our Summer Serve Days, at WinShape Camps for Communities and at our kid’s Equip: Understanding the Bible. We know that God has been at work through all of these activities shaping and molding the tender hearts of our kids for Him. While we are a bit sad to see summer come to a close, we are super excited about what’s to come this fall at Cornerstone! Our Back to School Beach Party takes place this Sunday from 4-6 pm. We will be baptizing several of our children at our Baptism Celebration on August 28th. Look forward to Equip: Parents coming in October, and that’s just the start! Read on to see what we will be teaching on Sunday mornings this month.
We are “blasting off” into some incredible truths from God’s word this month. Preschoolers will hear how God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever. Our Bible stories are all about God’s love for us and His special plan for our lives. We will also have fun space and rocket themed activities as well as crafts, songs and games to engage their little hearts and minds. At the end of the month we will have a very special picture craft that they can take home to help them remember this fun-filled, exciting month learning about God’s love for us! Take a minute to watch the August Preview Video for an overview of all the wonderful things your little ones will be learning this month!

This month our elementary kids are hanging out in the Rock City Science Lab as we host an “Experiment in Obedience.” Kids are learning that obedience is “trusting those who lead you by doing what you’re asked to do.” Our obedience shows that we trust the leaders that God has placed in our lives and that we trust God with his plan for our lives. All month long we’ll have fun with wacky science experiments, engaging worship, awesome games and Bible stories that all point back to the importance of trusting our leaders and our great God. And, while we as parents love the sound of the word obedience, it is our hope that our kids will take this concept a step further and truly understand what it means to trust those in authority because of God’s amazing plan and love for them! Check out this Preview Video to see all that your children will be learning this month.

Back To School Beach Party – We’ll wrap up this awesome summer with a splash on Sunday, August 14 from 4-6 pm with inflatables, water and sand fun, music, snacks, and more. Plan to come as a family and soak up every minute of fun!
- Baptism Celebration is Sunday, August 28, at 5 pm. If your child has accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior and is ready for Baptism, please schedule an appointment with Jill Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org so that he or she can participate in Baptism Celebration. If you would like to learn more about this process, you can also contact Jill.
Don’t let all that happens on Sunday morning stop when you leave the church. We want you and your kids to have big faith everyday, and we want to help you with this! We hope you will take advantage of the Preview Videos mentioned above as well as the Parent Cue’s, the God Times and the Pebble Path placemats we send home each week. These are great tools to help you keep faith conversations going in your home throughout the week. You can also check out and like our Cornerstone Kids Facebook Page for other hints to help you connect the spiritual truths that are being taught on Sunday with your everyday life.
Know that we are cheering for you and for your children! We pray for you and we trust that our great God has a wonderful plan for your family. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to support and encourage you as you walk closely with our Savior.
Blessings and joy from all of us in Cornerstone Kids!
