Message to Parents
How many times have you been blown away by things that were out of your control?
Imagine if you were a follower when Christ was still on this earth…imagine how you
would have felt when our Messiah, the one who came to save us all, was placed on a
cross and died! This week in Grove Kids we’ll explore what it looks like when things
don’t go the way they were planned…in a fun and crazy kid of way of course. We would
love it if you could join us this Sunday as we bring this lesson to our kids and families!
-Pastor Clark and the Grove Kid Leaders.

More Than This
On the Road to Emmaus
Don’t do anything only to get ahead. Don’t do it because you are proud. Instead, be humble. Value others more than yourselves. Philippians 2:3, NIrV
There’s always more to discover about God’s plan.
Humility—Putting others first by giving up what you think you deserve
I need to make the wise choice.
In Luke 24:13-35, we find two followers of Jesus on their way to Emmaus. From what we read, it seems they were sad and confused by Jesus’ death on the cross. Little did they know that Jesus was walking with them. He explained how Jesus’ death was the answer to years of God’s promises to the Israelites. They were shocked when they realized that this person was Jesus. They ran back to Jerusalem to tell everyone about what they had just seen.
Bottom Line: There’s always more to discover about God’s plan. What we help kids understand about God is important. We get to lay a foundation of faith that will set them up to keep learning about God as they grow and mature in their faith. We pray that kids discover that, through Jesus, God has a unique plan for their life and as they follow Him, they’ll start to see where that plan will take them.
For Our Parents
Speaking of being blown away…How are we teaching our younger kids about sexually
explicit photos and videos that are all over the internet. I know it’s not something we want to talk about but we want to equip our parents for everything this world is throwing at our kids and families. Here’s a great article to help you do that…as well as three things you can do as a parent.
