February on the Rooftop Week 2

17Feb_Standard_Love

“This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.”  (1 John 4:10, NIV)  Our memory verse this month is all about how much God loves us.  On Sunday we studied a familiar story about Jesus calming a terrible storm when he and his disciples were out on the water.  Jesus showed love when he comforted his disciples during the storm.  Our bottom line this week:  Comfort others who are hurting.  Our prayer is that kids will recognize when those around them are hurting and will show love and comfort to the people in their lives.
I encourage you to utilize the devotions we send home with your child on Sunday mornings.  If you didn’t get one, visit our website where you’ll find a devotion that coincides with our discussion on the Rooftop.  A more age specific copy of the devo is available from your child’s small group leader, but either is appropriate for your family.
*****KIDS – don’t forget your Bibles on Sunday morning!*****
Please prayerfully consider supporting our church and our kids’ ministry by becoming a volunteer in Crosstown Kids.  Our team creates a lesson for you that requires no prep other than to read the scripture reference and lesson before coming to church.  I know many leaders read over it while having coffee before coming to church on Sunday and are perfectly prepared!  We are working on filling positions beginning in the fall and some dates this summer.  Contact Traci Lowry for more details!  We need you!!

Easter Basket Items! 
In February, the Family Ministries team will be collecting individually wrapped candies (no chocolate or no nuts), small stuffed animals, bubbles, deodorant, brushes, combs, body wash and playing cards to fill Easter Baskets for children and teens in Gwinnett County that might not otherwise have an Easter basket this year. Donation bins are located by the double doors to the right of the Worship Center’s Welcome Desk, outside of the preschool office, in the Rooftop and in The Shed. To make a monetary donation, please click here, select “Other” and type “Easter Baskets” in the memo line. Thank you for your support!
