Note: The Weekend Overview will be posted tomorrow @9:30am
Happy New Years Everyone!! I hope your holiday was full of cheer as we bring in 2018 along with the life change that God will bring us this year. 😄🙌 With that here is the overview of our January Series.
This month brings our kids series Watch This!
Preschoolers’ love showing us what they can do. They re the embodiment of Watch This moments. And it can be anything – hula hooping, swimming, headstands, or my favorite, making their eyebrows go up and down. I love it when they learn how to do that, their facial expressions are priceless.
Pretty much anything a preschooler can do falls into the WATCH THIS category, simply because they think anything they learn how to do deserves a WATCH THIS moment.
This month we’re going to run with that theme, for all of you science experiment fans, you’re going to have a blast! Any messes that will be made will be TOTALLY worth it. We want to invite preschoolers to WATCH THIS as we do a few impressive things so we can lead them to the ONE who can do ANYTHING!
We want to help kids keep their eyes on Jesus because HE CAN DO ALL THINGS!
Memory Verse: “With God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26, NIV
Key Question: Who can do anything?
Bottom Line: Jesus can do anything.
Basic Truth: Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

Week 3: Jesus can do what is impossible.
Week 4: Nothing is too hard for Jesus.
January brings us our new series Work it Out: Commitment
Growing in faith is not something that happens by simply cramming information about the Bible into a child’s brain. The knowledge in their head means nothing if we don’t help kids experience what that knowledge can do in their heart. To experience faith, we want kids to practice their faith and that takes commitment.
God keeps all His promises and puts His plans into action. Because God has kept His promises to us, we can make a plan and stick to it. One of the best plans you can make is to commit to an ongoing relationship with Jesus. Commit to practicing faith by reading God’s Word, praying to Him consistently, talking about Him with friends, and living out your faith every day.
The Key Questions:
How can you hear from God?
How do you pray to God?
Who can you talk with about God?
How can you live for God?
I can’t wait for all 2018 has in store for us!
