God is Just

I'm so sorry I haven't blogged this week........I've been under the weather.

But if something has hindered you from thinking about your word wall this week - sickness, busyness, etc.; take heart!  It's not too late.  Gather the family tonight and think about God's goodness.  Last Sunday that is what we studied - GOD IS GOOD.  As you look at God's goodness to you and your family, be reminded of what else you know about God.

Try to find H and I words to describe God.  Here are a few off the top of my head......
God is...
worthy of Honor

I am

You can think of many more I'm sure.  As you complete your homework form, think about how you know this about God.  What in the Bible or creation proves that God is that attribute?  Write all this down, put it by the door...........bring it tomorrow to church.  Add it to our word wall so that others can see more about God by reading your discoveries.

Tomorrow we will look at the Justness of God.  Please don't miss this!  Set the alarm now!!!  We look forward to seeing you and your family at one of our services tomorrow!

God is my Deliverer!

We had a great lesson this week in PeeWees and Creek Kids.  Ask your child who the Deliverer was in the story of Daniel - Daniel 6.

On Sunday we will talk about Hannah - 1Samuel 1:1-20.  God is good........  Read this story with your child and name all the ways God was good to Hannah, then how has God been good to your family?

How are you doing with your word wall?  The one at church needs a lot of help!  Please bring in your words and put them on our wall.  We want to have a big one full of things to thank God for.

This week your homework is E and F.  If you are stuck....think about these words:

Full of.......

Be sure to find something in the Bible to support whatever word you write.

See you Sunday!

Funny Story from Sunday

Funny Story from Sunday.............
As the teacher for a 4 year old class was trying to get the children to think about their homework for this week, she said............. how can we describe God with a B, who can think of a B word?  A little boy in the back said - I know a B word - BUTT.  When the teacher gave him a shocked look, he said - uhh I mean BOTTOM.

Well that's a B word!  And God made our Butts, Bums, and Bottoms - God is our CREATOR.  Hey that's a C word for you.  What B and C words has your family found to describe our great God?  How is the word wall coming at your house?
