Prayer and Praise !
Missions and Music 2017- 2018
"Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let you requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. " Phillippians 4:4-7
Discovering ways to pray with children offers them space for connection and communication with God. We give them an invaluable and timeless gift when we teach them how to pray, a gift they can carry with them throughout all of life. This year's theme for Missions and Music is Prayer and Praise ! The children will explore what it means to "pray without ceasing", and why it's important. They will discover ways to pray thorugh art, movement, conversation, silence, scripture and singing. They will learn how Jesus prayed and stories of praying Bible people, and how to apply prayer to their lives so that everyday will be filled with Prayer and Praise !
During their Sunday night Missions and Music activities this year, children will learn how Jesus' encouragement to "let your light shine before all people so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven" applies to their daily lives. By studying character traits like courage, patience, and generosity, they will discover how they can shine the light of God's love on our neighbors.
The musical for Missions Marketplace in the Spring of 2017 is "SWAMPED!". Through this musical, the children will learn about handling change in life, being tolerant and encouraging of those who are different, facing the future with courage and joy, and how our faith is the foundation for these valuable life skills.
