Children's Ministry - September 2016

September is here! Time for Cook Kidz Club to start back up. Remember to go on-line each month to sign-up and get other details about what is going on with Cook Kidz Ministry. We will be having fundraisers starting in November to help kids go to summer camps. CentriKid was awesome. We had lots of first time campers, they had a blast and came home with closer relationships with Jesus and one another. Jesus is awesome and continues to move in the lives of children and adults after VBS and camp. If you have a 3rd-6th grader, this is their year to go to CentrKid Camp, 2017. We have had a great time in TeamKID this summer and we will continue to Jump the Hurdles and Follow the Leader each week on Wednesday. The older children 1st-3rd will have missions and 4th-6th will have Bible Drill. Starting on Sunday evenings, Sept.11th, we will have Preschool and Children's Choir from 4:30pm-5:45pm. We ask that children are here as much as possible on Sunday evenings as they will be preparing for musicals throughout the next year. Keep up with updates on Facebook. Cook Kidz Ministry or

Children's Ministry - August 2016

Wow, what an exciting month July was! We had a total of 143 kids that came to VBS. We had several decisions made to follow Christ, and we were able to see several of them baptized at Cook and at their home church! Their lives will never be the same. We had an awesome time during VBS Family Night. Lots of families fellowshipped with one another and were very appreciative of everything we did for their children and their family showing your love of Jesus to the families in our community!

We also had 24 go to Centri-Kid Camp this month! It is exciting to see what God is doing in the ministries at Cook. You are the hands and feet of Jesus, Cook family!

We have Preteen Invasion for 4th, 5th, and 6th graders coming up on August 20th!

We will also be taking up school supplies for the months of August, September, October, and November and will distribute these to the schools in December! If you are shopping, grab extra supplies for our kids in our community!

Love you all, Rebecca

June floated by quickly this year! Those that have worked hours after hours, days after days preparing and living out your love for Jesus at VBS this year, THANK YOU! You are amazing and God will continue to bless you as you give your talents and love for others. You are amazing and God truly blessed us with each of you and your special talents at Cook Baptist Church!

For those of you who prayed for us and the families joining us for VBS, THANK YOU! We were able to invite families at the Peach Festival by giving them the invitation for VBS and a cold bottle of water, THANK YOU! We always have lots of fun being able to give a smile, VBS invitation, and a bottle of water to families on a hot day at the Peach Festival! God is great!

We will continue to plant seeds from the opportunity God has given us as we follow up with families in our community and plan more fellowships through the year!

Don't forget, Wednesday evenings from 6:00pm-7:30pm we have Team Kid! We are learning so much!

Children's Ministry - May 2016

As the Spring season has kicked off and the pollen has put a yellow blanket on every thing in sight outside, I am amazed at how living things need that pollination!

Some of us have allergies and some of us it does not bother too much! Jesus Christ is the same. He is the pollination we need to bear fruit and to live life to its fullest year after year! When we are saved, we take the old off and put the new on and each time we study the Word of God. He gives us new meaning and new understanding of the way we should live our lives and the purpose we have! God is great and He is our strength and what we need from season to season! God has great and amazing fruit to bear through each of us and we are not going to all bear the same fruits! We are all different and we all have gifts that He gave us to share with others and to help and serve others! As the Spring season kicks off, what opportunities has God showed you he wants you to take to show love and support to others? Some of these opportunities could be. Praying for others that are in the body of Christ, the lost, encouraging committees that are praying and seeking God's guidance, taking meals to the sick, teaching or helping in Connect Groups, Sunday evening, or Wednesday evening. There are lots and lots of opportunities God can give us share to His love and support for one another.

God loves you just the way you are, but He refuses to leave you that way. He wants you to be just like Jesus. (Max Lucado)

Jumping the Hurdles at TeamKID, 1st -6th grade. This month we will be learning how to Be Dependable, Accepting Jesus as Savior, Going to Church, Following God's Leadership!
