God created man without sin and placed him in the garden.
Happy Mother's Day! This morning our kiddos went back to the beginning to see how we were created and originally designed to reflect God and His glory. We learned God creates all things for his purpose, immediately seeks after relationship with humanity, and prescribes order and authority in creation.
Where is Jesus?
Jesus, the second Adam, brought righteousness into the world by obeying God perfectly. Because of Jesus, all people can have His righteousness (holiness in God's sight) by believing in Him. When we read about the first Adam we remember the second Adam who succeeded where we failed. (1 Corinthians 15:45-49)
In the home
We are on Week 2 in the Long Story Short family devotional this week (starting on page 15). Each week expands and elaborates where we ended on Sunday morning. This is a great tool to help spark gospel conversations in pointing your kids towards Jesus.
Also, another part of family discipleship in the home is encouraging/challenging your kids to memorize scripture. Some have wondered where to find a digital copy of the bookmark each month. You can find a copy of it by clicking HERE or visiting our family discipleship page, scrolling down and clicking on the image like the one below.
Kids will quote Hebrews 11:1-3 (the highlighted portion on the bookmark) on June 4th.
As was announced this morning, we're partnering with Waters Edge Church down the road to offer a vacation bible school for our kids and the community. Registration is already open! If you would like to register your child click on the picture above. Space is limited and it is first come first serve! If you would like to help lead during the week click HERE to let us know your availability. If you have any questions contact Fanny at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Praying for you as you invite your kids to love and follow Jesus in all areas of life,
