Check out what we’ve got planned for Sardis Kids for Sunday mornings this month:
Preschool: Ages 2-4 (First Look)
Have you ever played PAC-MAN? The best part of that game is eating the large power pellets. Pac-Man immediately powers up, and then you can do anything. The bad guys can’t get you! You can eat them and earn bonus points doing it! It’s awesome! Feeling like we can do anything is a pretty great feeling. We may not have power pellets lying around that we can eat to power up, but we do have another power source—a real power source that gives us the power to do everything God wants us to do. His name is Jesus. And, He is AMAZING! We are going to Power Up through the next two months with the hope of creating a super fun and engaging experience for preschoolers to learn about the fruit of the spirit—what happens when we are connected to Jesus, the real power source.
GOD VIEW: THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT AND GOD’S CHARACTER, AS SHOWN THROUGH GOD’S BIG STORY
God created us in His image, and He sent His Son, Jesus, to show us the way to live. He also knew we would need help; that’s why He sent us the Holy Spirit. With the power of the Spirit, we can produce fruit that points others to Jesus. Every month, kids discover something about God’s character and how they can reflect or respond to that character because they are created in God’s image. We call those LifeApps. And we’re discovering how several of these Life-Apps show up specifically in what the Apostle Paul calls the fruit of the Spirit.
“THE FRUIT THE HOLY SPIRIT PRODUCES IS LOVE, JOY AND PEACE. IT IS BEING PATIENT, KIND AND GOOD. IT IS BEING FAITHFUL AND GENTLE AND HAVING CONTROL OF ONESELF.”
GALATIANS 5:22-23A, NIRV
One great program we have for our Sardis Kids is Camp by Memory. Camp by Memory is a program to help kids memorize God’s Word and get money for camp!
Kids are given portions of scripture to memorize throughout the school year and recite what they have memorized to someone who will test their accuracy. If the scripture was memorized sufficiently, kids are awarded money for camp.
We are happy this program is back for the 2018/2019 year and we encourage you to get your kids involved! Information is available through our Church Office.
This program is wrapping up for this year. Please make sure to get your verse sections completed by June.
Sardis Kids Cirriculum
Your kids mean the world to you. And we understand that you want them to develop a foundation of understanding in God to help them through life's questions and choices. That is why we pour ourselves into making kids experience at church relevant and meaningful in an age appropriate way.
Family is very important and we recognize you as the spiritual leader to your children. Our children's curriculum keeps that in mind. Our Sunday School curriculum for ages 2-grade 6 is from thinkorange.com. With this style of curriculum, each month focuses on a single Bible memory verse & life application ("Life App"). Through the month, kids explore this theme with Bible stories, games & discussion to make that truth memorable.
We're especially excited to partner with you in new ways to carry on that faith dialogue at home. Watch for the info your kids bring home and check out the online resources.
