Bring your candy for the Great Pumpkin Party this Sunday! You can drop it off in the marked bins either in the main lobby or the kids wing.

Look below to see what our Kids Ministry is teaching this week!

In the 34’s classroom: Esther Obeys

Talk About It: God blesses obedience. Esther obeyed her foster dad Mordecai, and that put her right in the middle of God’s exciting plan.

Bible Connection: “You will be blessed if you obey the commands of the Lord your God..” Deuteronomy 11:27

Challenge for families: This one is a life application lesson. A very important part of training up your child is helping them see the importance of obeying you. The goal of parenting should be to bring up your child in the Lord and to create a loving environment where your child feels safe. To do that, there have to be rules and consequences. This is the way God shows His love, and it’s your role to lead your child to Him by being as much like Jesus as you can be. That only happens through the Holy Spirit working through you. Train up your child in the Lord, and He will guide your steps.

In the 5K’s classroom: Zacchaeus

Talk About It: Zacchaeus became a kind friend after he decided to follow Jesus. As we follow Jesus, we begin to treat others with kindness too.

Memory Verse: “…I follow the example of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 11:1

Challenge for families: Many opportunities will arise where your child will have to apologize and ask for forgiveness, and your child will need to forgive someone for doing wrong to them. Lead by example in this regard. Children need to be taught this valuable trait.

In the Grade School classroom: Share the Good News

This week’s main point: People need Jesus to be their best friend; I’ll live like Jesus so they’ll follow Him.

Memory Verse: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” Romans 1:16
