I realized Monday night that I hadn't written!  I am sorry.

Easter is this month and our lessons and discussions are focused on  Jesus and the Cross.

2's/3's    Jesus is Alive:
                                       He is with us all the time
                                       He loves us
                                       We are thankful for Him
                                       We can tell others

4's/5's      Jesus is Raised from the Dead and sends out His Disciples
                                       An Easter video will be shown this month.

Children and Worship     Jesus Death and Resurrection

K-5th Grade

With a new month comes a new virtue.

Humility:  Putting others first by giving up what you think you deserve.

Our Memory Verse:  "Don't do anything only to get ahead. Don't do it because you are proud.  Instead, be free of pride. Think of others as better than yourselves.  Philippians 2:3 NIRV

Check out our web site for lesson details:  www.hebronkidz.org

I encourage you to read the scripture with your child before Sunday Morning. 

Palm Sunday Details:

Children will process with palms at the 9.30 Worship Service.  If your child is interested, please bring your child to their classroom at 9am to sign them in.  Parents of Preschoolers are asked to process with their child and teachers. Elementary children will process with their teachers. 

At 9.15 Children/Parents/Teachers will walk to the Music Wing together.  Children will be in the Worship Service for about 10 minutes and then be taken to their classrooms.  Parents may stay in the service.

Welcome to Hebron Kidz Blog~ 

It's a new month which means new learning opportunities for children on Sunday mornings.

What are we  talking about this month?

* 2s and 3s                         Jesus is With Us When We are Scared
                                           Jesus is Alive!

*  4s and 5s                        Finishing up Zacchaeus
                                           Jesus Gives Us New Life

*  Children and Worship    Lenten Puzzle;  Jesus the King; Jesus Last Passover; Woman Anoints       
                                           Jesus; Too Afraid to Follow Jesus

*  K-5th Graders                 Forgiveness --
                                            Deciding that someone who has wronged you doesn't have to pay.
John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that who ever believes in Him will have eternal life." 

When we forgive others, it is a response to that great love and forgiveness that God has shown us.  Forgiveness means letting go of what someone else has done to us in order to restore the relationship.  Isn't that what God did through His Son Jesus?  He knew that we couldn't restore the relationship on our own.  And He loves us so much and wants to be in a relationship with us that He sent His Son -- our Savior and Lord -- to restore our relationship with Him.  Remember Genesis 3:8...God was walking in the garden looking for Adam and Eve! 

Things to think about this month with your children:
1.  Forgiveness is a response to God first forgiving us.
2.  Forgiveness is a way we can show others God's love for us.
3.  Forgiveness can restore broken relationships.
4.  Being forgiven can change the way we live. 

All of this and much more can be found on our website:  www.hebronkidz.org.

Welcome to the HebronKidz Blog!!!  
Our desire:  To partner with parents and guardians to help their children come to know Jesus as their Savior and Lord.   We want your children to grow in that relationship with Jesus Christ, too.
To help you, I will share general information that your child will be learning during the month.  You can find more details at our website: www.hebronkidz.org                           
How many weekends does a child have from the time he is born until the time he graduates from high school?  (See answer below.)
I will tell you that it goes sooooo fast!
Why does this matter?  It speaks to the fact that weekends aren’t enough time with children to teach them everything they need to know about Jesus Christ. It isn’t enough time for them to listen, ask questions, and wrestle with the truths in the Bible…God’s words to us! 
At Hebron Church, we want to come alongside of our parents as you:  teach, listen, and pray with your children allowing them the time to ask questions and to wrestle with God’s truth.
Sometimes parents don’t know where to start or are looking for new ideas.  To help you, we have posted on our website the lessons that children will be learning weekly.  These lessons are posted monthly giving you the opportunity to read ahead with your children.  This gives you the opportunity to read the Bible together, talk about what God is saying and how it applies to everyday life and to pray together. 
On the website you will also find a weekly devotional and a parent cue card which simply helps you talk with your child about how to connect God’s word with everyday life. 
A look at February:
·          2s and 3s:                             Jesus healing the Paralyzed man.
·         4s and 5s:                              Zacchaeus.
·         Children and Worship:       The Good Samaritan, The Sower, Jesus and the Children and  Zacchaeus. 
·         K-5th Graders…
Children will discover that faith is trusting in what they can’t see because of what they can see.
Unlike the disciples, we can’t physically see the work of Jesus as proof of God’s love.  But we can see all of the many other ways God reveals Himself.  Through the things we can see, we can believe what the Bible says about God is true. 
When we recognize God at work around us, we respond to Him with trust.  We have confidence that He has a plan for our lives, and we are willing to take risks to see that plan accomplished.  Even in our moments of doubt, God will show us something to remind us to have faith. 
Things to think about this month:
1.     Faith is a response to what we know about God from Scripture
2.    Faith is grounded in what we can see and hear.
3.    Faith is evidenced by the choices we make.
4.    Having faith doesn’t mean we’ll never doubt, but through doubt we can learn to trust God even when we can’t see Him.
Love in Christ,
**Answer:   940 weekends!
