Psalm 23 - Scripture Memory Verse

Did you know there are tons of benefits of memorizing Scripture?  

Just a few are that Scripture Memory: 

1. Renews our mind and transforms our life

2. Helps against temptation

3. helps us live in obedience, 

4. brings God's blessing to our lives, 

5. allows us to more readily encourage other believers, 

6. allows us to share with unchurched people better, 

6. gives us a better understanding of God and His will and

7. makes us wise!  

Now, who doesn't want all that?

God also calls us to memorize Scripture!

Here are 2 boys who memorized scripture - ages 4 and 2! If they can do it, so can you!

Summer Kids Club is Amazing!

July 29, 2020

If you've never experienced the fun and excitement of a Summer Kids Club, you are missing out!


Kids talk about it all year long, and volunteers are just as blessed as the kids.


Today is our third day of fun, food, crafts and learning. Seniors and staff from buildings around WRBC parking lot smile and wave and dance along to the music every morning.


The best part is that kids are experiencing God’s Word every day. Memorable Bible Points are reinforced throughout each station, each day — making it easy to apply long after camp is over. The bible memory buddies and all stations work together to make this powerful educational tool work for kids and leaders.


Here's a summary of what they are learning:


Day #1

  • Bible Point – Jesus’ power helps us do hard things.
  • Key Bible Verse “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13
  • Bible Story: Ananias helps Saul. Acts 9:1-19

Day #2

  • Bible Point – Jesus’ power gives us hope.
  • Key Bible Verse “So be strong and courageous, all you who put your hope in the Lord!” Psalm 31:24
  • Bible Story Paul encourages others in a storm and shipwreck. Acts 27

Day #3

  • Bible Point – Jesus’ power helps us be bold.
  • Key Bible Verse “He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless” Isaiah 40:29
  • Bible Story Peter and John teach about Jesus. Acts 3:1 – 4:31

Day # 4

  • Bible Point – Jesus’ power lets us live forever.
  • Key Bible Verse “The spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you.” Romans 8:11
  • Bible Story – Jesus’ death and resurrection. Matthew 26:17 – 28:10

Day #5

  • Bible Point – Jesus’ power helps us be good friends.
  • Key Bible Verse – “Love each other in the same way I have loved you.” John 15:12
  • Bible Story – The church is united. Acts 2:42-47; 4:32-35

It's not too late to join in on the fun!


We're going to have the same camp again from August 10-14!

When You Feel Like Shouting "Stop It"

July 27, 2020 Help from Denaye Barahona

How do we usually react when our kids are doing annoying things we don't understand? Especially when we're tired or stressed. Are we inquisitive? Or do we shout for them to stop? For many of us, too many times it is the latter.


Denaye shares a great idea and a story on how being curious instead of accusing worked for her! 


She suggests asking your child, "Can you tell me more about what you’re doing?”⁣


Here's an example of how this helped in her parenting:


One day I heard this crazy ruckus outside. I walked out and my son was running back and forth along the stone pavers in our yard pounding them with a metal shovel. Back and forth, back and forth. My first inclination was to scream “KNOCK IT OFF! You are going to break something!”. Instead I took a deep breath and walked out calmly and asked…"Can you tell me more about what you’re doing there?”⁣

He told me he was making music. At second glance, he wasn’t behaving erratically after all. He was pretending the stones were a giant xylophone and the metal shovel was a mallet. Each stone made different sounds based on their sizes. So instead of being mad, I was actually impressed with his creativity. 

So what did I do? I told him that he could continue as long as he wasn’t damaging anything. We walked around and checked the stones and they were unharmed. So, I let him carry on. Sometimes there’s a method to their madness and we just have to pause and figure out what it is. Always strive to approach with inquisition rather than accusation—because there might be some serious exploratory learning going on. ⁣

The Art of Parenting

July 24, 2020

Parenting and trying to raise godly children is the hardest job in the world. 😆 


Now, being on the other side, I can’t encourage you enough to make God the #1 priority in your family and in your life. Please take 52 seconds to watch the video, in the link below, on Session 7.  


The reward of having two 26 years old who passionately serve and love Jesus is the best reward for all the years of hard work. 😊


Parents, in order for our kids to fall deeply in love with Jesus, our walk has to match our talk. ❤️
