Children’s Ministry – October 2017 by Beth Aultman

You may have noticed a few changes in the Children’s area on Sunday mornings recently.  We are now using material called Bible Studies for Life, a series produced by Lifeway Christian Resources.  Children’s leaders are privileged to spend an hour or so each Sunday morning with kids, and we want them to come away each week confident they have heard some of what God has to say in the Bible, how it applies to their life and have spent a few minutes on Bible skills.  When you get a chance, check out the Levels of Biblical Learning poster hanging on the bulletin board near the welcome center.  It covers 10 biblical concept areas – God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, Bible, Salvation, Creation, Church, People, Family, Community & World – that children can learn as they study God’s Word. The concept areas are presented through six different age ranges, from infancy through the preteen years, and reflect levels of understanding that follow how God designed children to learn. Bible Studies for Life: Kids is based on the Levels of Biblical Learning. We look forward to our October Unit of study: “Love and Obey God”.   Please pray that we will see more of our kids become regular attenders.
