October verses & Pumpkin Parable

October is here! It doesn’t feel like it yet, but it is here! We are starting a new series in each of our age groups, including new scripture verses. Both series are similar, with similar memory verses. Please pray for our leaders and our kids as they learn about transformation… God’s Spirit transforming our unique and imperfect lives into the character of Jesus.

Preschool Series Description:
Bravery can be anything from walking through the doors of a dentist’s office to defending the helpless from attack. What is it that makes people step up to the plate of bravery? For Daniel, Gideon, Miriam and Hezekiah, bravery came from knowing that God was with them. The same can be true for us. God can help us be brave. Core Insight: Transformation

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid . . . for the LORD your God goes with you.” Deuteronomy 31:6, NIV

School-aged Series Description:
God may ask us to take a risk or do something we might not feel prepared to do. But God will also give us the courage we need to face that challenge. Jesus faced the biggest challenge of all: death on the cross. He chose to be brave and follow God’s plan. Core Insights: Faith • Transformation

Be strong and brave. Do not be afraid. Do not lose hope. I am the Lord your God. I will be with you everywhere you go.” Joshua 1:9b, NIrV

As we enjoy the fall season, and talk about transformation, here is a fun parable.
