Jana Alayra!!!!

Jana was our special guest at Chapel this morning! Such a treat! She sang and danced with your kids.  I'm sure they'll hungry for more Jana and we are so pleased to tell you that Jana Alayra and the Band will be performing in our auditorium.  Save the Date! Bring your friends!

Use these conversation starters to continue this discussion at home:

  • Paul and Barnabas were sent out to many places to talk about Jesus. What places do you go every day? Where do you have opportunities to talk about Jesus?
  • Paul and Barnabas did not have an easy time telling about God’s story. They had lots of obstacles in their way—sometimes people even wanted to hurt them! What are some problems that get in the way of you talking about Jesus to others?
  • When Paul spoke, people listened to him because he knew a lot about the history of the people he was talking to. Why is it important to get to know what people care about? How can that help them to hear the message you have?
  • Let’s talk about some practical ways we can get better at telling God’s story this week. What ideas do you have?
  • Remember that no matter what happens, God is with you wherever you go!

Submerge Your Kids In God's Word

Kids will have an adventure like no other, deep within the mysterious sea. As kids submerge themselves in God’s Word, they will discover that Jesus didn’t just see what’s on the outside of people. He looked deep down on the inside. So grab your goggles, step into your flippers, and dive in to find truth below the surface!

Children Experience 5 days of…

Great Bible Study, Songs of Praise, Games,
Crafts, Snacks, Missions and More!

For Kids 3 years old and potty trained (as of 9/1/2016) through students who will be in 6th grade as of Fall 2016.

(sorry, no water day this year)


Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.  See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

 -Psalm 139:23-24
