Hey Church Fam!

As a Family Ministries team, we want your kids to not only come and learn about Jesus on the weekend, but for each family to grow together in their relationship with Jesus. We hope that you find this email helpful in providing you the information you need to take what is learned on the weekend into the home!   – Pastor Brad Elias


Early Years

Key Truth: We can trust God even when we don’t understand!
Bible Passage: Genesis 15, 21, 22
Story: Abraham’s Big Test

Action Steps for Parents:

  1. Recap the story with your child. What can they remember?
  2. Thank God for their favourite things and have everyone put one favourite thing on a shelf for a period of time (an hour or two) symbolically giving this to Jesus today. Thank God for your favourite thing again in the evening.

Please pray: Pray with your children that camp would be completed for summer!
