Creating Spiritual Foundations

We believe it is our mission to equip and assist families in laying spiritual foundations with the hope that all children will come to know, love and follow Jesus. For questions about our Children’s Ministry, please contact our Children’s Director, Meagan Durham.

For the month of March our life application is patience.  Patience is waiting until later for what you want now.  As a parent, I am looking forward to following along and learning this month.  
 
Our memory verse for the month is from Psalm 27:14 and says, “Wait for the Lord.  Be strong and don’t lose hope.  Wait for the Lord.”
 
Each week this month our Bible stories will teach us how to act when we have to wait! March 7 we will read Luke 2:25-35 when Simeon waits for the Messiah.  We will learn that when you have to wait, know that God is with you.  The next week we will read the story of the Golden Calf in Exodus 32:1-35.  We will learn that when you have to wait, we can remember what is true.  March 14 our story is from Genesis 25:24-34.  Esau’s impatience will teach us that if we don’t wait, it will cost us.  The last week of March, Palm Sunday, we will finish our lesson on patience by reading Matthew 21:1-11 and learning that we can celebrate even when we have been waiting.

Connecting Church and Home

This year, we made a wonderful investment in our Children’s Ministry with the implementation of the Orange curriculum. The name Orange is derived from the idea that the two greatest influences in a child’s life are the church and the home. The church is where children experience the light of Christ—yellow—and the home is where children experience love—red. When those two influences work together, the effect is a much greater impact—orange—on the faith development of the child. Orange is educational and fun for both the children and the volunteers in the program.
