We normally update it at least once a week.
Family in Focus
Did you know that we are praying for you? We are. And we draw a name from our watering can every week or so to find a family (or team member) to focus on. When we draw your name, we will ask if there is something specific we can pray for you or your family. Experience tells me, this usually comes at a really good time! The names for the Family in Focus will be posted (without prayer requests) on the board in the entry way, along with the memory verse for the month. That way you can pray along with us and be a part of blessing various families in the Garden City community.
Scholastic Book Club
Look out for our Monthly book catalogs through Scholastic. Keep your eyes open for those $1 books. Great deals offered especially for upcoming holidays.
Bible Theme – Miracles and Parables
"Your faith has made you well. Go in peace."
The idea of "miracles" can be a bit abstract for young children. On the one hand, their experiences are limited so many things can SEEM like miracles. And we don't want them to confuse miracles with magic.
Parables may be a bit easier if you are in the habit of reading stories to them that have life lessons.
Here are some things to try at home:
