City Kids

The Gospel Project continues for City Kids. Since the beginning of September, City Kids has been exploring the creation story and why God made the world, as well as, the fall of man and the consequences of sin. An amazing thing is emerging along side these stories, which is the redemptive plan of salvation through Jesus. When Adam and Eve sinned, God came looking for them. A promise was issued that one day a descendant of Eve’s would crush the serpent. Adam and Eve learned quickly that Cain and Abel were not the ones through which redemption would come. Who will it be and when? The story of Noah is next in our series. Please encourage you kids to bring their Bibles every week as we dive into God’s word. If you are interested in being a part of what God is doing in our kids, let Joel, Cheryl or Nelson know.

Preschool Corner

“Picture this. You’ve been watching for weeks as this ginormous statue of the king is being built. You don’t know for sure what’s going on, but you know it may not be good. All along, you and your two friends ask for God’s help in faithfully serving this king. The day comes where you are invited along with many other officials to the grand revealing of the statue. While you are there, you are told to bow down and worship this statue. What? This is crazy! Everyone is now bowing, but you three.”

“Talk about standing out in a crowd!”

“After a whole big whoop-de-do, you find out that you and your friends are gonna be tossed into a super-hot fiery furnace. Not a great ending to your day. If God doesn’t show up…..you’ll be toast, literally!”

This month, the preschoolers of City Point will be learning about bravery whether in the face of a giant, a fiery furnace or a pack of hungry lions. Never fear, God shows up every time!

Nursery News
The love of God can be communicated to even the tiniest babies. That’s why every child at every age will participate in an engaging, interactive Bible lesson. In October, our nursery babies, toddlers and two’s will be learning about all the wonderful animals God created. Songs, Bible story-time, and playful activities will emphasize God is the Creator of all living creatures.
