Here are a few things coming up in our ministry . . .
ADD YOUR OWN DATES: THE JOY JAM
This month, we’re getting kids and families together for a fun night of jam sessions, jam tasting, and rockin’ those jammies! (Are you sensing a theme?) Mark your calendars!”
SING: A 5-WEEK SERIES ON THE PSALMS
People say music is the universal language, something everyone loves in one form or another, and a way we can communicate shared emotion and experience even across generations, culture, location, backgrounds, and traditions. Much of what is expressed in the book of Psalm are things we experience and feel today. Because of that, we can learn a lot about God and ourselves in these Psalms. When kids can claim these five things – I am wonderful because God made me; I am safe because God watches over me; I am confident because God leads me; I am forgiven because God loves me; I am not afraid because God can be trusted – they will be unstoppable in their life with God!
When’s the last time you told your kid about your journey of faith? Have you ever told them what you thought about God when you were their age, or when you first heard about Jesus? Do you talk with them about who God is to you today? If it’s been a while, start that conversation with your kid this month. Tell them your story of faith for two reason: 1) Because it will help your kid’s faith grow. 2) Because it will help your faith grow too
In this month of giving thanks, have you taken time to really think about all the things and people you are grateful for? Not only is it good practice for the holidays, but as interfaith scholar, David Steindl-Rast, suggests — thankfulness is the key to happiness! Check out his TED talk here.
