Don’t Forget This The Night Before School

Today at Sunday School we will talk about how to get ready for school. It’s fun to get ready for school; buying new clothes, crayons and a backpack. It’s an exciting time, wondering what your new teacher will be like and who will be in your class. It can also be kind of scary. You … Continue reading Don’t Forget This The Night Before School

Become A Banyan Tree

You've heard it before. Everything worth having is worth working for. Just because we are excited about Jesus today, doesn’t mean our faith will last the rest of our lives. Lasting faith requires good soil and strong roots. On our recent vacation my husband insisted we go see a banyan tree. If you are not … Continue reading Become A Banyan Tree

THE. STUFF your kids bring home from school, camp and Sunday School. First of all, it’s all precious, of … Continue reading Keeping All That Treasure

The First Six

The preschoolers have spent the last two weeks learning about the Ten Commandments. We are ending our school year learning some important basics of our faith. We've already talked about the Lord's Prayer, Golden Rule and Fruits of the Spirit. Sometimes it could be hard to talk to kids about big stuff. You might wonder what are … Continue reading The First Six
