Sunday 9:30 a.m. Worship Service | Youth Tuesday 6:30 p.m. | Small Groups throughout the week

Welcome to KidZone!

We meet every Sunday that there is a regular service, and kids are welcome to check in and come to their classes any time after 9:15 a.m. so adults can be in the sanctuary by 9:30 a.m.

Check in is at the computers inside the double doors at the end of the foyer. Enter your child's information or use the "Find" option if you've been before. Print the name tag and pickup sticker (which the responsible adult keeps until they pick up the child after church). Kids ages K-6 grade go to the KidZone classroom next to the computers. Kids who are pre-K go to the Nursery just up the stairs and to the left. There is an infant room just across from the check-in computers for parents to use as needed to stay with their baby and watch the sermon on TV.

A normal Sunday in KidZone might start with a coloring or puzzle page, then worship with some music and movement, have a Bible based lesson and discussion time, then finish with a craft, games, and a few minutes of outside play when the weather is good. Snack is not a typical part of our morning, so please be sure your child gets a good breakfast before church or has some of the refreshments provided in the foyer before they enter the classrooms. Church typically ends between 11-11:15 a.m., at which time parents are asked to pick up their children and giving the pickup sticker to the attendant in their child's class.

Today we celebrate fathers and the wonderful gift they are from God! Thank you special dads for showing God's love to your kids!

Verse: 1 Chronicles 16:23 "Sing to the Lord, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day."

Today's lesson reminds us that we can find God in His creation, which He made for us to live in, care for, and enjoy. This week, find ways to notice God's amazing creativity, detail, and power in all that He has made, and take time to enjoy it. Go on a hike, have a nature treasure-hunt (look for neat rocks, flowers, and creatures), lay out under the sky and watch the clouds (or the stars), and talk to God as you think about all that He has made. The Bible says that all creation sings His praise, and we want to be part of that!

Verse: Hebrews 13:5b "God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."

God is everywhere, and He cares about all the little details of everything in our lives! He promises in the Bible that He is always with us, and He will never give up on us...and that means even when we make mistakes or do things that are displeasing to God (sin). He sends people into our lives to be blessings to us, and we can be used to bless others. As you keep God's faithfulness in mind this week, thank Him for the ways He loves you, cares for you, and is always there for you. Then look for ways to love those around you to share how God cares for them, too!

This week has been full of reminders that too many people have forgotten how to follow Jesus' instructions to "love your neighbor as yourself." Well, you might ask, who is my neighbor? Does it just mean the people who live in the houses right next to me? So I don't have to be nice to the people five houses down? Waaaaaiiiit a minute. That doesn't make sense! In today's memory verse, we learn that "A friend loves at all times" (Proverbs 17:17), and if Jesus is saying to love our neighbors, then we are asked to be loving to anyone we come in contact with: everyone can be our friend or neighbor! Many adults lately have been angry about how sometimes different people are treated badly, and as Christians, it's our job to make sure God's love is shown to everyone! Take time this week to show special love, especially to someone who might be different than you (HINT: that's everyone!).
