Last Wednesday we celebrated the beginning of Lent in our Ash Wednesday Service, we talked in Sunday school and Pioneer Club what Lent is all about. It’s a time we think about the mistakes we make in a solemn effort to search and purge our souls of evil and celebrate God’s grace as we look forward to the cross on Good Friday. In Pioneer Club tonight we’ll continue to look at families; tonight specifically what it means to honor our parents as the Bible calls us to do. Children will be encouraged to write or draw one way they will honor their parents this week on a coupon that they can give to Mom and Dad.
In Sunday school we will be moving on to verse 7 in Psalm 8, “all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field,” In verse 6 the Psalmist writes that God put all things under the control of humanity, in verse 7 the Psalmist details the many things humanity has the privilege to take care of. This week Sunday school begins at 9:45am in the Fellowship Hall.
In Children’s Church this week we’ll look at God’s promise to Abram that started it all, the birth of a great nation that would be a blessing to all nations. Abram became Abraham, Sarai became Sarah and in the name changes their identity changed as they covenanted with the true and living God.
