We were so excited to be able to celebrate our Sunday morning service together outside--the sun was out and it was such a beautiful and gorgeous day. We created Paul figures with fabric and buttons, etc. as we are continuing our study on Paul and his journey spreading the good news about Jesus. Today, we focused on not just the people who Paul came across that were happy to hear about the Lord, but rather the angry people wanting to hurt Paul and who didn't want to hear about Jesus. We learned today that it is important to ask God to help us love all people, even those that want to hurt us or be angry at us. God wants us to spread his word to all peopled and we learned different ways we could obey him through our verse Psalm 119:17, "I will obey God's word." Of course, after our lesson, we had to "break out the bubbles"!!!!!
Additionally, your children are so beautiful and creative, I am always amazed at what they are able to come up with when given a table full of scraps and ideas. They love to create, they love to talk about not only the lesson for the day, but also their successes for the week. What just makes me so happy is the fact that when they are asked for prayer requests, they sincerely ask for meaningful prayers for their friends and family. You should all be so proud of your children. They are such important people in the lives of our church, and I am always so amazed by them. I hope you are all able to take the time to come celebrate and share in some of their hard work Saturday, June 13 from 5 to 6. We will have dancing, singing, artwork being displayed, and of course, ICE CREAM!!!
