AND our most recent addition (photo pending): Orlando and Priscilla Jimenez welcomed Jocelyn Galiana Jimenez on February 16, 2013.

As our nursery experiences a little “population explosion”, we joyfully look forward to showing the love of Christ to our newest babies and their parents.  Our nursery team is a pretty amazing and gifted team with one really special volunteer that should encourage all of our men. Yes,  Real Men love Jesus AND serve in the nursery.  We love you Eugene and our babies do too!

Our Boulders (grades 3-6) have been busy studying Acts and learning about evangelism and outreach.  They’ve enjoyed creating these hats that displayed what they learned in a fun and creative way. CollageImage

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Additionally, our children have spent time learning how to welcome other children by assembling visitor goody bags for those who visit our church.  Each bag contains a personal note from our children, trinkets and a gospel tract.  We definitely have future greeters and outreach team members in the making :)!

TEACHABLE MOMENTS

1. The Greatest of These Is Love:  This year, dig into the meaning of “agape” with your kids.  This Greek word best describes God’s love—the highest form of love.  Agape has a deep, rich meaning: selfless, sacrificing, unconditional love. How does God show us that love? How can we show it to each other?

SHARE THE LOVE

Dig into what makes your kids feel most loved and you’ll learn more about how to connect with them. Ask:

1. What are your favorite memories of things we’ve done together as a family?  Why?

2. What makes you feel safe? loved? happy?

3. What could we do together to grow closer to God ? How does staying close to God help our family love each other more?

 

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
