This Week for K-5th
and Preschool

Happy 2022! Praying God’s richest blessings on you and your family in this new year!
In the month of January we are learning about self control. We are defining self control as choosing to do what you should do even when you don’t want to.
We trust God no matter what. Even when we face unexpected circumstances, we can respond to them withself-control. We can trust that we don’t need to rush in or take matters into our own hands. We can trust that God is working. Self-control is a Fruit of the Spirit. As we follow Jesus throughout our lives, the Holy Spirit transforms us and helps us live more like Jesus. We can follow His example and choose to do what we should do—instead of what we want to do. The Holy Spirit can give us the power and wisdom to show self-control.

As kids learn more about self control, we are praying that they will take this character trait to heart. It can change the whole course of their lives, as we as parents understand. An out of control person is rarely successful and not a whole lot of fun to be around.

Our Preschoolers are starting the new year by learning that Jesus teaches us important lessons. The Bible lessons they will be concentrating on to see this truth are: The Prodigal Son Luke 15:11-24, The Parable of the Lost Sheep Luke 15:3-7, The Parable of the Bigger Barns Acts 2:45; Luke 12:16-21 and The Parable of the House built on a Rock Matthew 7:24-27.
Please join us for these amazing life lessons. There is a link for both our Elementary and Preschool lessons above.
