Tickets will be available the next two Wednesday nights by the Pioneer Clubs office downstairs. Parents must sign a waiver, and ticket money is due no later than February 1 (ages 11 and older are $12, ages 10 and under are $10).

We recently finished our unit on Friends. Children learned that true friends care for and help each other, and that Jesus sets the perfect example. We learned that we can forgive our friends because God forgives us, and that Jesus wants us to reach out and include everyone. Finally, we also learned that our friends influence us, and we need to be able to evaluate whether their influence is good or bad, so we can say yes to the good and no to the bad.

In our next unit, we will talk about what it means to be in God’s family. Keep this page handy – the memory verses are listed below:

In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish. Matthew 18:14 (learn by January 28)

Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. Matthew 7:24 (learn by February 11)

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8 (learn by February 18)
