This was quite the week as all the schools are now back in session, athletic practices have begun and families are starting to settle back into "normal" routines. We are feeling the same sense of relief and preparation for things to get "normal" for the fall here in the Children's Ministry at WMS. Although we recognize nothing is ever really “normal” when you are living out a life for God and especially when children are involved…..and how exciting that all is!
Labor Day Weekend is throwing in one last curve ball so there will be NO SUNDAY SCHOOL for Children this Sunday, September 6th due to the holiday weekend. Instead we will offer an Intergenerational Mission-Minded Sunday School class for adults, youth and children to attend. There we will learn about children in our community living in temporary housing and make “bubble kits” to send to the agencies providing services to these children. The class will meet in Room 415 from 10:00am-11:00am.
Children's Chapel is now back to meeting at 9:00 and 11:00 in Room 415. This week the lesson was Worship Through Psalms where we learned that David worshipped God despite his circumstances, we can worship God no matter what is happening in our lives and there are many ways to worship. Be sure to ask your children that attended what their own personal musical instrument was they created or what it was like to build a refuge for themselves and their friends.
The Heroes and Sheroes were in full force during the Sunday School classes this past week and we even had a LIVE SNAKE in one of the classes as we learned about Adam and Eve!!! It was non-venomous of course, and a perfect of example of how exciting and not "normal" things are around here! Remember that each week your child will have various ways in which they can learn about or act out ways of kindness that exemplify how we are all called to be Heroes and Sheroes for God!
Lastly, we are preparing to kick off the Wednesday Missions Programs that you can learn more about HERE. Please be sure to register your child as soon as possible for GLOW, Mission Possible Kids, or Impact League starting September 9th 4:00-5:30.
