For Our Children

This week is Week 3 of Kids Church for this month! We will be focusing on being kinder than we have to be. Engaging in multiple activities we will focus on the story from Matthew 5 about going the "Extra Mile" for one another. Next week I will be reaching out to have your kiddos send in a reciting of our memory verse for this month, which is - 
Colossians 3.12 - "Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourself with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience." 
We are continuing to plan towards an outdoor worship service soon, so please keep us in your prayers as we prepare for that.
