For more information contact Steve Blackston at 706-741-0584.
In the wild, you’ll need to form alliances to survive. In the kingdom, friendships made with other believers can help you thrive. Today we will look at two people who formed an alliance and became part of HIStory!
In Acts 3:1-4:21 we see that Jesus’ mission isn’t going to be that easy. Peter healed someone in the name of Jesus and caused quite a stir. Peter and John used this moment to share the message of Jesus. Soon though, the religious leaders arrested them and had them stand trial. Peter and John showed determination. They made it clear that no matter what happened to them, they would continue sharing Jesus with others.
Bottom Line: Keep going even when it gets tough. Even when we follow Jesus, we’re not promised an easy life. We are promised that God will be with us. Just because a situation we face is difficult, doesn’t mean it’s time to give up. We pray that kids will learn to lean into the power of God to find the determination they need to keep going.
Starting May 24th, we will be back at the church for Children’s Church! But make sure that your parents are okay with you coming back. There are also a few things that I need you guys and gals to do while you are back there. So check out this video so you know what is going on!
The past few weeks have been just a bit unprecedented to say the least. On March 17th I began doing online classes for the kids in AWANA and then Sunday Morning classes. During that time we have all learned a lot about what is going on with the virus that has changed many things that we take for everyday happenings.
However, I am about to change things us again, starting on May 24th, there will be an 11:00 morning Children’s Church Service. There will be distancing in place. There will be fun had. There will be the Word of God preached. I have placed a quick list of things I need you to talk to your children about before they come to class. Most of all, I need you to watch the video below so we are on the same page and you know what to expect from me.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact me. Text, phone, smoke signals, air horns, or signal flares are acceptable. Just let me know on the last three before you do them. I look forward to seeing you and your kids at church when you are comfortable and understand what we will be doing.
