Children’s Ministry

Our children’s ministry is undergoing some re-energizing right now under the guidance of Valerie Blackburn, and we want you to be a part of it. The kids are always doing something wonderful, including learning Bible stories, crafts, and snacks.  We have seasonal activities such as an Easter Egg Hunt, a Christmas Party for Jesus and Vacation Bible School, among others.

If you would like to join the fun, please contact Valerie Blackburn at blackburn7893@comcast.net 

Children’s Ministries – Get involved!
If you want to help play a part in building the spiritual lives of our children, we have all sorts of opportunites, from Sunday School to Children’s Church (during the 11a service)–and even helping in the nursery. Every moment you give to a child helps build his or her future spiritual foundation. Let the church office know if you are interested in helping (770-474-2570).

Hi, kids.   The adults and youth will be doing a Bible study by Adam Hamilton called Not A Silent Night.   That got me to thinking about that night—the night that Jesus was born. 

It was Christmas night.   Mary and Joseph, after traveling for miles, had to stay in a stable—not in a palace, a nice hotel or hospital.   They were in a stable with cows and goats and sheep and chickens.  Think of the smells that must have been in that stable.  Were those animals all quiet?  I am sure there was neighing, mooing, baaing, clucking and maybe squeaking from a little mouse!   Baby Jesus was born in the stable with all the animals.  After His birth, I am sure the Angels were singing!   Joseph probably placed baby Jesus in the manger so he and Mary could rest from their long journey.   I picture all the animals quietly coming to look at Jesus in the manger, not because they wanted to know what was in their food box, but because somehow, they knew He was special.   Oh, what a wonderful night.   It may not have been a quiet night, but it was a glorious night!

Jesus was born for you.  Remember–Jesus loves you and so do I.

 

Love, Oreo
