Children's Ministry - February 2017

This month is filled with love! We need to be sure we are loving our families, neighbors and others we may come in contact with all year long. We can show people everyday we care and can pray for one another. Our children will be making Love One Another baskets for our older members that cannot be at church as much as they once could. This is a ministry of showing love to others our children and Connect Group leaders share in their class the weekend before Valentine's Day.

We will also have our Daddy Daughter Date Night this month. Our Children's Ministry Team is continually praying and thinking of events, 1 each quarter, where parents spend one on one time with their children and share God's love with them. They will have a devotional time where the specific relationship will be the topic and they will be prayed over. They will also have a meal and make an activity which will be a reminder each month of the importance of the relationship. These events are Father Daughter, Mother Son, Father Son, and Mother Daughter.

Our Vacation Bible School Ministry Team has been meeting and planning VBS for June 26th-30th. Go ahead and put VBS on your calendars for an awesome week to share scriptures, and Jesus’ love with children in our community.

We will be going to CentriKid Camp July 31st-Aug 3rd. This camp is for entering 3rd grade- 6th grade. The $50 deposit is due by Friday, February 10th.

Children's Ministry - January 2017

HAPPY NEW YEAR! May God bless your family this year. We stay so busy during the holidays The last two months of the year is a hurry and rush time for a lot of people. January is a time that some may make New Year's resolutions. I pray we put God first in everything we plan and calendar this next year. He wants to be in your whole year of planning. Imagine what we could accomplish if God was the center and the first thought we have when it comes to our life and others. God is great and we need Him.

If you missed the Cook Children and Youth musical, “Dude, You Hear What I Hear?” go to the Cook Baptist Church facebook page and watch the live video of it. It was a blessing and God was there. The choirs and leaders were a blessing to share Jesus' story. God used each one of them in a very special way.

This year, we will have new ministry opportunities for parents and children to share times together. Please watch on facebook and Cook Baptist Church website for upcoming events to spend time with your children.

Children's Ministry - December 2016

MERRY CHRISTMAS! My favorite time of the year has finally arrived. You could say I have lots of favorites, but this is my most favorite. Happy Birthday Jesus!

The reason I love Christmas so much is because the meaning of real and true love was born on Christmas for me and for you. Every time I read or hear the Christmas story, it feels my heart with such joy and love. The reason we celebrate Christmas should be remembered by us all year long. He is the happiness in the children on Christmas morning. He is the love we share with our families around the Christmas season, those near and far. He is our Messiah, and he lives in all the miracles we see and hear every day. This time of year, we get so busy and we want everything to be perfect, but the most perfect gift you can give anyone is Jesus Christ.

Coming up this month
Dec 2 Cook Kidz Club 6-9
Dec 7 Cook Kidz Ministry Team Meeting

Love you all, hope you have a very Merry CHRISTMAS.

Children's Ministry - November 2016

Fall is here and winter is fast approaching. I think of all the many things I am so thankful for, and want to encourage children to be thankful for. So, the next two months in Cook Kidz Ministry we will talk about things we are thankful for and discover things that we may not have thought of as something to be thankful for. Being able to attend the ETCH conference last month was amazing. God moved in many ways. There are lots of opportunities to serve and love on other people in our church and community, through ideas we shared in our sessions and lots of ways our culture is changing. Kids need someone to encourage and pray for and with them. I am so thankful I was picked by God to do His works. Each one of us has a specific ministry He has given us. As the year gets closer to the another end, and the weather gets colder, think of ways to share Jesus' love with others in your home and community. Take your family outside and read the Bible to them, cuddling with them under cozy blankets or invite your neighbors over and have a small campfire and have a devotional time. Sharing His love with others to give them the hope and faith we have is your way of serving. I am excited for what plans God has for each of us in our daily walk with Him.

Don't forget each Wednesday 6:00pm-7:30pm we have TeamKID, Bible Drill and Missions.
Sunday Morning Connect Groups start at 9:00am
Sunday Evening Children's Choir starts at 4:30pm
Sunday Evening worship starts at 6:00pm

November 4th Cook Kidz Club 6pm-9pm
November 13th Community Service FBC-Ruston
