Children's Ministry - January 2018

We had a great 2017. Praying 2018 is even better. God is so great all the time. We had lots of opportunities to share Jesus' love with others in our communities. This next year holds new beginnings and opportunities for new relationships through Christ. God has chosen each one of us as His disciples.

We have lots of opportunities to share the love of Jesus in our ministries. We have extended session on Sunday mornings and Sunday evenings. If you would like to serve one time each month, talk with Rebecca about where you can get plugged in. Thank you to those of you that help with this ministry. Your continued support is appreciated and we are thankful for each of you.

Children's Ministry - December 2017

Happy Birthday Jesus! It is now Christmas time. Slow down, have fun and spend time with your family. This time of year brings lots of great memories from when I was a kid. My momma always made sure that everyone had the things they needed. She gave so much joy, love, and time to others. She would give socks, lotion, food and other gifts to the elderly. The children she knew always had plenty of clothes, shoes, food and toys. Our friends called her Momma too. She always had an open heart and a gentle guidance when things got tough or we just needed to talk. This time of year, all the memories of Jesus' love my mother showed through the years fills my heart with joy. Be sure to take the time to give your children and family the love of Jesus every day. It will last a lifetime. We are here to be Jesus’ hands and feet to everyone we come in contact with. Every child needs someone they can talk to and understand them. When the world gives them questions, your attitude and answers can lead them to Jesus. As the year comes to a close and a new one begins, pray that Jesus will show you new ways to be a light for Him to everyone you come in contact with.

Children's Ministry - November 2017

Wow, it has gotten cooler. Fall is finally here. This time of year reminds me of cozy fires, warm pajamas, hot chocolate, s’mores, and the list goes on of the fun you can have in the fall. The most fun of all is to share the love of Jesus with your family, friends and neighbors. Invite them to church with your family. You have lots of opportunities to invite them to church in the next few months. Sharing the love of Jesus through the year is what we are here for. This month, show them how thankful you are to be in their life. Pray Jesus gives you the opportunity to share His love with others in our community.

A lot has been happening with Cook Kidz Ministry and we continue to pray for more ways to love, build and encourage His kids at Cook. We are thankful for the support and love that you give Cook Kidz Ministry. You can change a child’s or parent’s life each time you keep the nursery or teach a class. God has given each of us gifts and abilities to show His love through this ministry. If you would like to have the opportunity to help in extended session or connect groups, we have opportunities for you to serve in areas.

Children's Ministry - October 2017

As Fall approaches, things start to change color. Our Children’s Ministry Team will be cleaning out things and putting a fresh color on classrooms. We are looking at ways to improve and make things better. We have prayed over this for a while now, and God has got great plans for Cook. We would like to thank everyone who helps in any way with this ministry. You do not know how many young lives you touch and how that impact will be the rest of their life.

We always have opportunities for you to serve in Cook Kidz Ministry. We have a really exciting mission coming up on Tues. Oct. 31st called “Operation Night Light.” We will be asking for you to fill the black can by the Welcome Center with whatever treat you would like to donate. This will touch our community in a big way. We have around 5000 people, mostly young families come by our church every year; they park on Cook property and walk the neighborhood. What better way to give back to Jesus then to stand in front of our church with a bag full of goodies and a smile welcoming them. If you would like to help serve at Operation Night Light, see Todd or Rebecca.

Coming Up in Cook Kidz Ministry:
Sept 24th - Oct 25th Drop off treats at the Welcome Center
October 6th - Cook Kidz Club
October 25th -Fill the bags for Operation Night Light
October 31st -“Operation Night Light”
November 10th -Cook Kidz Club

Love you all,
Rebecca Welch
