This is an adult Bible study of the Old Testament lessons in the Lectionary for Lent. The meal begins at 5:30pm, studies are from 6:15-7:30. We will be collaborating with St. Jude’s Episcopal Church, and all sessions will be held in our Fellowship Hall. Child care is available in our nursery.
This rotation runs February 10 – March 17. The children will learn that Joshua was a prohpet. He led his people into Canaan (the Promised Land), conquered Jericho, and renewed the covenant with God. Children will learn Joshua’s story and what it means to be a propeht – one who speaks for God. The discussion will focus on the meaning of the memroy verse.
Memory verse: Joshua 24:14-15 “Decide today whom you will serve… As for my family and me, we will serve the Lord.”
Stewardship of all God’s creatures is emphasized by our service to the Fenton Adopt-a-Pet mission. Our 21 volunteers had a great time socializing the animals, talking with the staff, cleaning the floors and painting the surgery room. The Adopt-a-Pet mission seeks “to find loving homes for homeless dogs and cats as well as assist people in the community to find homes for their personal animals.” A couple of our youth signed up to be regular volunteers at Adopt-a-Pet!
January 6 – February 3, 2013:
Objective: To understand that God will never abandon anyone. He will search for one who is lost until that soul is found. Everyone is equally important to God. Older children should try to figure out their roles in helping God achieve His purpose.
Memory Verse: Matthew 18:14 – “In the same way, your father in heaven does not want any of these little ones to be lost.”
The generosity of our community for those in need was reaffirmed Saturday, December 15, as members of our congregation rang the Salvation Army Bell. Over 40 participants of all ages smiled and greeted shoppers outside WalMart and VG’s as the kettles received donations to help our brothers and sisters experience the hope of Christ’s presence this Christmas Season. A special thanks to all the individuals and families who shared their time ringing the joyful “good news” of love and peace.
