Celebrating Advent 2020!
Jesus birth – the reason for the season! Join us in preparing for Christmas by celebrating Advent this year.
Advent means “arrival” and during the Christmas season, we prepare for Jesus’ arrival — His birth. We recognize the virtues Christ lived by. Advent begins four Sundays before Christmas and each Sunday celebrates one of the four virtues by placing candles on an Advent wreath.

This week in Toddlers & Twos and Preschool (for ages 3-kindergarten), we are learning that – I can praise God because He is good. Grab your shakers for week five, because we are having a praise party! We want to lead our preschoolers in praising God, because God is good! It will be a special time when we read all of the leaves on our Thankful Trees, praise God for all He has done, and remember that God is good.

In Grade School (for grades 1-4), we finish up the month in 1 Corinthians 11:23-26 and Exodus 12. In 1 Corinthians 11, Paul talks about taking time out to celebrate Communion, or the Lord’s Supper. When we drink the cup and eat the bread, we celebrate that Jesus lived and died, and rose again to make us right with God. As we think about what Paul wrote, we’ll take time to remember that this celebration is rooted in another rescue story where God lead the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt.
Bottom Line: Get in the habit of being grateful.
People often focus on bad habits they need to stop. However, the best way to stop a bad habit is to replace it with a good one. Replace those sweets with healthy choices. Replace TV with exercise. Replace complaining with gratitude. We pray that kids will start to see that gratitude is a choice that God can help them make, especially when they remember all that Jesus did for us on the cross.Grade School Parent Resources GodTimes

Giving Back: Offering Projects
We want to teach kids the Biblical practice of offering a part of all that we have back to God, to say thank you for all He’s given to us. That’s why we encourage kids to bring some pocket change each weekend to give towards seasonal projects that benefit others through local and global partnerships.view Offering Project
