Prayer Journals, Compassion Experience & Memory Verses

BACK TO SCHOOL EVENT

Thank you so much for making our Back to School Kick-off a big success! The purpose of the event was to make sure your kids knew we are praying for them as they start a new school year! I hope they grabbed a pencil or a pin to put on their bulletin board or backpack!

PRAYER JOURNALS

We had a great time at our Prayer Journal workshop for parents. There was a wonderful suggestion that we set up an area where parents can continue the work that they started in the workshop. Tables will be set up in the room across from the Baby Nursery. There will be some instructions at the tables. I will also be sending some videos after Labor Day. If you would like to sit down with me independently to get a prayer journal going, let me know.

COMPASSION EXPERIENCE

I would like to recommend the Compassion Experience. It is a GREAT tool for helping your child understand the life that a child in a developing country lives. This is about how a child that receives an Operation Christmas Child box or food from Feed My Starving Children. I have been several times, and it is a really well done experience!

MEMORY VERSES

It is a new month and so we are starting some new memory verses.

Pre School: “God saw everything he had made. And it was very good.” Genesis 1:31, NIRV

School Age: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Do not depend on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5, NIrV

I hope you had a great first week of school.

See you Sunday!
