Hi Everyone


What a fabulous week it’s been weather wise! Thank you Lord for a week full of sunshine.


As always, I can’t wait until Sunday. Hanging out with your kids is the highlight of my week and I know their small group leaders love it as well. Just a few things to share with you.


This Sunday, we’ll be celebrating all the kids who are born in the month of February, so hopefully all those kids will be able to be here.


Just a reminder that the Kids offering goes towards sending 2 children in Mexico, whose families live in the dump, to school. It only costs $125 per year per student. What a privilege we have to help make a difference in the lives of these 2 kids.


We have a Baptism Sunday happening on Sunday March 29th. If either you or your child(ren) are interested in taking this step of obedience, don’t hesitate to let me know. It’s such a wonderful and special experience where everyone is blessed.


The Bible Memory Verse is: 1st Corinthians 15:3-4–Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, He was buried and He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures. 1st Corinthians 15:3-4.


The younger kids can learn: He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures.


Have a great weekend.

See you on Sunday.

Hi Everyone,


Happy Valentine’s Day!


I just wanted to share a few Bible verses with you to remind you of how much God loves you.


John 15:13–Greater love has no one than this than to lay down His life for His friends.


Romans 5:8–God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.


Romans 8:38-39–For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height no depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


Ephesians 5:1-2–Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant suffering and sacrifice to God.

1st John 3:1–See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!


1st John 3:16–This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us.


How blessed we are to be children of God!!


We’re having a baptism Sunday on Sunday March 29th!! We’re super excited about this. Please let me know if you or your child(ren) are interested in getting baptized. Not only will it be an incredible experience for the one getting baptized, it will also be a wonderful witness to those watching.


Wishing you a great weekend and can’t wait to see the kids on Sunday.

Hi Everyone,


This Sunday is going to be so much fun! I hope all the kids can come and hopefully some of them will be bringing friends with them.


Kids can come to church in their pajamas! We’ll be serving pancakes, doing a craft and they’ll do something fun with their small group leaders.


If you’d be willing to send along a treat (chips, muffins, little cupcakes) for your child’s small group to enjoy together, please send me an email. I have some of the groups covered but could use a bit more help.


We’ve got lots to do so if you can get your kids to church to check in as close to 9:45am, as possible, that will help us out a lot.

Wishing you all a great weekend and looking forward to a fantastic Sunday!

Hi Everyone,


I can’t believe it’s the last day of January! The warmer air we’ve had this past week feels like Spring may be on the way. ☀️


Your child(ren) will go home with an invitation this Sunday. It’s to invite a friend, who doesn’t go to church, to come to church with them on Sunday Feb. 9th. Information will be on the invitation.


Friends are such an important part of our children’s lives and everything is more fun when we get to be with our friends. Our kids have the opportunity to reach out and invite kids to come and discover how awesome it is to learn about Jesus and to be given the opportunity to become His child now and for eternity. We don’t know what the future holds, but fear is erased when we have the assurance of a never ending relationship with Jesus. We need to be active in reaching out to those around us so that no one misses out. What a privilege we have to share the love of Jesus with those who haven’t discovered Him yet. God calls us to be obedient and share the good news that is only found in Jesus Christ! How blessed we are to serve Him together.


Thanks guys.

See you on Sunday.

Lisa


Remember to practice the memory verses with your kids.

January 24

Hi Everyone,


It’s hard to believe this coming Sunday, Jan. 26th, is the last Sunday of January! 


I’m really looking forward to it because we’re having our Multi-Cultural Event after the service, in the gym, and in Kids Church we’re going to focus on learning how to be loving and kind to ALL people, no matter our differences. We want to love like Jesus loved. 


Just a reminder that you’re welcome to bring some food to share after church. You can drop it off in the kitchen when you arrive at church. 


We’ll also be celebrating the kids who are born in the month of January.   


Just a reminder of the Bible verses we’re memorizing with the kids this month. Please work on them with your kids at home. 


For the Preschoolers/Kindergartens; Ephesians 2:8-9–You are saved by grace through faith....it is God’s gift. 


For Grade 1 and Up; Ephesians 2:8-9–You are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift, not from works, so that no one can boast.  


We also want the older kids to memorize John 3:16 and 17. Many know John 3:16, but verse 17 is just as important because it explains why God sent Jesus. 


John 3:16-17–For God so loved the world that He sent His only Son that whoever believes in Him will not die but have ever lasting life. For God did not send Jesus into the world to condemn the world but to save it. 


Next Sunday your child(ren) will be given an invitation to invite one of their friends to come to church on Sunday Feb. 9th. As a family, please pray about who they could invite. 


Wishing you all a fun and hopefully relaxing weekend and can’t wait to see the kids on Sunday.

Hallelujah what a Savior!! Thank you Lord.


Please mark Sunday Feb. 9th on your calendar. This Sunday is another opportunity for your child(ren) to invite a friend, who doesn’t go to church, to come with them that morning. The kids can come to church in their jammies. We’re having a pancake breakfast as well.


And don’t forget the multicultural event happening Sunday Jan. 26th, right after the service in the gym. You’re welcome to bring some food to share and dress up in any cultural clothing you may have.


Can’t wait to see you on Sunday.

Hope you have a great weekend.
