Kid’s Quest Families,

Hey!! Holy Week is next week!! That was fast! As most of you know there is not going to be an Egg Hunt this year. Please pass the word and invite all of your friends to come to service on Sunday April 16th to our “Road to the Resurrection” Party! It is going to be impactful and FUN!!! I still need a ton of help to make this great, sign up in the foyer this Sunday!

I am also attaching some Holy Week devotionals so that you can guide your family through the Holy Week and what it is all about. Get together in this season and celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

ON another note here is a list of dates to fill out that empty calendar of yours, (wink,wink).

April 9th Family Worship Service!@1130—We have been discussing about getting our children into service and how it is important as a family that we worship and serve together. Also it is important that as parents we model what worship looks like. In support of these discussions we have decided to promote a couple Sundays so that we can worship together. Sunday April 9th@1130 will be our first Family Worship Service. There will be no Treehouse (Kid’s Church) that day and our families will be encouraged to bring their children into service and worship alongside them. Treehouse will resume the Sunday April the 23rd @1130. These Family worship services will happen once a quarter. The next one will be at the end of August for the conclusion of SSB. The last one is due to be set in November or December. I am really excited about these service times! Mark them on your calendar and let’s fill Gods house with families worshipping alongside one another. Questions: This email address is being protected from spambots.

The kids will have an opportunity to be involved by creating some cards to be handed out; parents you can help too! So sign-up when the announcement is made!

April 30th – Be on the look-out for our SSB announcements!!! During the summer we want to appreciate our amazing teachers just a bit more by giving the summer to take some time to rejuvenate and possibly take a little vacation. So that they can be ready to go for the fall. It’s at this time we run Summer Sunday Blast, a huge 10 week long VBS on Sunday mornings. We will need ALL hands on deck. When the insert in the bulletin comes out, fill it out and help with our summer program needs. It takes a whole Church to grow and build lifelong followers of Jesus.

What are my Children learning?—If you’ve ever had this question that’s OK. I will let you know. Right now we are studying the Gospel Project. It is a chronological walk through the Bible. Every lesson points to Christ and how he is seen throughout the Bible. I have many additional resources available for families who want to dive deeper into these lessons at home. Shoot me an email and I will gladly pass on the information. Also on your child’s activety sheet is a “Family Connection” that you can look at and it will guide you through a quick family devotion that asks them questions about the lesson. Every classroom is covering the same topic so no need to be concerned about different stories in different age groups. How easy is that!?!
This Unit’s main point is “How can we obey God?” Answer: We trust God to give us strength to obey Him.
If you are in need of resources ideas or some encouragement to start a family devotion time please feel free to contact me. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
