The kids in the Duck Pond & Kingdom Rock have been having a great time learning about God’s word and STANDING STRONG!
FAITH AT HOME CONNECTION
We want to help equip families to have “faith talks” and generally grow in their faith together as a family. Each month you will be given a TAKE IT HOME sheet that will include the Bible Points, Stories and Verses that your child(ren) will be learning each Sunday. We always want to encourage families to read the Bible at home and to learn the verses and songs with their family.
BIBLE VERSE & BIBLE READING
Has your family been learning the Bible Verse together? Learning God’s word is great fun when you learn it together as a family! Have you and your kids been listening to the Books of the Bible songs on your CD? A great way to learn some really tough words! Say Ephesians five times fast!
We want to encourage a global focus, which also flows through our mission statement at Riverside. This month we will be making little gifts to share the love of God and spread the true meaning of Christmas.
We will finish up Kingdom Rock on December 4th. Our last story is about King Josiah who became a King when he was a child! Only 8 years old! You can read about him in 2 Kings 22:1-23:23. The theme to end Kingdom Rock is that The Bible Helps us STAND STRONG! Our last verse will be “Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.” Psalm 119:105. During the rest of December we will encourage everyone to share about the real meaning of Christmas!
