This Week in Village Kids - May Week 2
To make it through the mayhem, you need perseverance! Pushing through isn’t always easy, but we can do it if we refuse to give up when life gets hard.
Life App: Perseverance - Refusing to give up when life gets hard
Bottom Line: You can choose joy when life gets hard.
Key Question: Why is it worth it to keep going?
FX Season Finale!
Sunday, May 19th, is the season finale of FX - our Family Experience bringing K-5th graders and families together for a great shared experience. Doors open at 5:30pm and the event begins at 6pm. Childcare will be provided for babies-preschoolers.
But wait! There's more! Following FX, we're hosting a party in the parking lot for the whole church family. We'll have inflatables for the kids, a dunking booth, games, and hamburgers and hot dogs for the whole family!
Am I only invited to the party in the parking lot if I have kids and come to FX? NOPE! The parking lot party is for EVERYONE! So come hang out around 6:45pm, have a burger, and meet a new friend!

MOTHER'S DAY GETS COMPLICATED
By Sarah Anderson
Mother’s Day highlights the gap that exists between what we wish were true and what isn’t. It’s a day where we are confronted with our highest hopes and our current disappointments.
Any other day we are okay with children who sometimes make us want to pull our hair out; we have learned to manage the hand life dealt us, so different from the one where we imagined we were mothers, or where our mothers were different from what they are; we might be able to get through without stopping up short, confronted afresh with emotions the loss of our mom or our babies have invited into our lives.
But not this day. This day it’s hard to escape what any other day we might adequately push through or cover over. And that makes it hard . . .
