This Week in Village Kids - March Week 1
We were made in the image of God, to love God and love others in a unique way. As we learn about individuality, we’ll discover who we're meant to be.
Life App: Individuality - Discovering who you are meant to be
Bottom Line: God made me in His image.
Key Question: What do you think it means to be made in God's image?
Sunday, March 24th
5:00 PM in the Village Church Auditorium
If your child put their trust in Jesus Christ and believes in Him as the One who forgives their sins and makes it possible for them to know God, we are so proud of them! There is no greater decision your child could ever make.
We believe that baptism is an important next step for them. Baptism is a way of telling friends and family, "Hey! I'm a follower of Jesus!"
Our baptisms take place at an event called Family Baptism Celebration. It is a party where we celebrate your child entering God's family, and they are the main event!
If your child is interested in learning more or participating in Family Baptism Celebration, please talk to Hilary Bond, our Family Ministry Director, or email us!
FX is back!
FX is back! So who are you bringing?! Your family? Your kids? Your neighbors? Your neighbor's kids? Your co-worker's family? Your co-worker's kids? Give them a shout because Sunday, March 10th, FX-- where kids and parents have a great experience together, where everybody has a blast-- returns! FX, or Family Experience, is an environment designed for the whole family to come together, learning and laughing with one another. Using drama, music, games, and biblical teaching, FX helps kids and adults learn about specific values of Jesus-- what we call Life Apps. Doors open at 5:30pm and 6pm is go time. Popcorn, slushies, and a ton of fun will be served up in mighty helpings! So make plans to join us Sunday, March 10th. *With FX being specifically designed for K-5th graders, childcare will be provided for babies through preschoolers. This allows our elementary kids to truly enjoy the experience and feel like it is their own!
From Parent Cue:
HELPING KIDS COME ALIVE
By Mike Tiemann
I’m not sure what I expected it to be like—getting to know my kids. I guess I figured that on some level, they would be miniature versions of me. I didn’t really think about the fact that they would be always changing . . . always growing . . . always becoming.
In hindsight, I think I underestimated God. I don’t think I fully appreciated the depth of His creativity. But I do now. I see it every day in my two girls—in their unfolding identity, and in all their beautiful complexity. Parenting them is constantly surprising. Sometimes it’s baffling. But it’s certainly never boring . . .
