This week, we had a fun time recreating the story of Jesus feeding the 5000, one of his most amazing miracles. Jesus was speaking to thousands of people when it became dinnertime. Instead of sending them all away to fend for themselves, he turned five loaves of bread and two fish into a meal for over 5000 with leftovers! He showed his love by providing what the people needed. Our bottom line this week: Give to others who are in need. We hope kids will recognize opportunities to give to others. It could be as simple as sharing their lunch or lending a pencil. Our memory verse this month: “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)
I encourage you to spend some time with 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.
*****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!!
