"Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still; teach the righteous and they will add to their learning."

Proverbs 9:9

Hello Kids Zone teachers,

What have you been meditating on in God’s word lately? The story of Mary, Martha and Lazarus has really intrigued me and challenged me these last two weeks.  I decided to study it this time instead of just saying “ I know this one,” and then teaching.  Jesus is being so very intentional.  This occasion, namely Lazarus’ death, is to bring glory to God. Do you view the bad events in your life as an occasion to Glorify the Son of God?

I wanted to bring to your attention that the Lesson plans have changed a bit.  Our plan used to be under the headings, Small group, Large group and back to Small group. The Headings have changed to Introduce the Story, Teach the story, Apply the Story.  Until now I have been giving real life stories and object lessons to teach the concept of the lesson.  I have left teaching the story ( for the most part) and application to you.  I would like to continue doing it that way.  Any lesson we teach has overlap in our classroom and the large group session.  That is perfectly fine.  PLEASE, if you have any questions or concerns, talk to me. 

Juanita has stepped down for awhile.  She hopes to be back but her return date is unknown.  We will look for someone to help out. In the mean time keep her in your prayers.  

There will be no Kids Zone on March 10th, 17th and March 24th.  We will resume on March 31st.  We will not interrupt our lessons for Easter as the Easter story is so closely aligned with the calendar and our lesson book guide.

PLEASE NOTE: There will no kids Zone on March 10th. We will be having a family Sunday and all children will be in the main sanctuary.
