MV412Ministries Covid-19 PSA

Parents / Guardians,

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.

Thanks,

Steve Blackston – Children’s Pastor at Mountain View Baptist Church – Thomaston, GA

Spirit Thing

In week two, head to Acts 2:1-41 and find out how the disciples would have the strength to keep going and tell the world about Jesus. As the disciples were gathered together, the Holy Spirit came upon them and empowered them to preach with boldness. Peter preached the message of his life, and over 3,000 people put their faith in Jesus.

Bottom Line: God gives you what you need to keep going. When it comes to determination, kids might feel like they’ll never have enough of it to finish what they start. Thankfully, this isn’t something we have to face alone. We can rely on God to give us the strength we need to keep going.

Make a Plan – Episode 1

This is the first of a few episodes for the Summer Series of Survivors! Each Wednesday night at 7:00 there will be a new episode, so be ready! Yeah, they may be a bit weird and strange, but that is life also! So sit back, and get ready to become a survivor and thrive in God’s Kingdom!

In the wild, you have to come up with a plan if you expect to survive. In the kingdom, those who fully rely on God will thrive. We need to build a strong relationship with God and rely on his wisdom if we want to succeed.

Send Me on My Way

We start off the month in Matthew 28:16-20, Luke 24:50-53, and Acts 1:1-11 as we help kids discover more about the final moments of Jesus’ life on earth. Before He went back to His Father, Jesus gave His disciples a huge mission: tell the world about Him. The message of Jesus was for everyone, and it was their job to get the word out.

Bottom Line: Keep going even when it seems impossible. A lot can seem impossible to a kid. From learning to tie their shoes to reading paragraphs out loud in class to memorizing those multiplication facts, kids will face all sorts of moments when they feel like everything is too hard, too big, or too long to finish. But that’s where God comes in. We pray that kids will start to understand that no matter what they face— impossible or not—they can trust God to help them through it.
