Duck Pond

Thank you for “lending” us your child(ren) for a brief time on Sunday mornings. We are thrilled to be able to help your child(ren) and entire family learn and experience God’s love, faithfulness and learn HIS story.

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 Stories that your child(ren) will be having read to each Sunday. You will also receive other resource information throughout the “semester” to help your family grow together. We always want to encourage families to read the Bible at home and to learn the verses and songs with their family.

Family Resources

We also want to equip families – this month you’ll find articles from Focus on the Family and Faith at Home available at the Duck Pond.

The Rapids

Have you been having fun learning the songs and Bible verses from Kingdom Rock? We’ve been having a great time helping your

kids learn to Stand Strong for God! We hope that you have been too!

Kingdom Rock and Wesleyan Kids for Missions will help us begin an exciting Sunday where your child(ren) will learn more

about how God’s love, Family & Friends, Prayer, Trusting God and the Bible all help us grow STRONG. We will join together in music, Bible Point,

Story & Verse and then break-off into smaller groups for age appropriate discussion and activities. We are also going to be more intentional about flowing everything we do through our mission statement at Riverside – particularly discipleship and missions.

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

Has your family been learning the Bible Verse together? We hope so! Learning God’s word is great fun when you learn it together as a family!

BIBLE READING

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 Thessalonians five times fast!

MiSSIONS

We want to encourage a global focus, which also flows through our mission statement at Riverside. To help with this every two weeks your child will be learning about a missionary family around the world through the Wesleyan Kids for Missions program. You too can look up the video for each family (link will be posted on the Riverside Facebook page).

Every child will be encouraged to say their verse to one of the Sunday Kids Team. When they do, they will be able to choose a prize from the prize box at the end of class.
