Cook's Kids started the year with our January Cook's Kids Club. Each child worked to memorize Jeremiah 33:3 and will be responsible to quote it in February. Each month, we will work on different scripture passages and every child who can quote all six in June will be awarded a special event to attend. Our next CKC is on February 13 and we will be focusing on showing love to others. Be sure an make your reservations before midnight, February 8.
We will launch our new Kids' Church on February 8! Our kids will have an exciting time to dig deeper into the lesson of the week that was introduced in their Connect Group. Be sure and send your first through third graders to this time designed especially for them. If you enjoy working with kids, this is an opportunity for you. We still need four teams to work in Kids' Church so we can have an eight week rotation. See Sharee, Rebecca, or Penny if you are interested in helping.
Keep your eyes open for an announcement regarding our annual Bible Drill Pre-Drill! Details should be finalized within the next week.
CKC moves to the second Friday of the month this year. Mark your calendars and make your reservations online.
Stop by our Kids Ministry table at the Ministry Fair on January 11. We will have information about upcoming events and opportunities for you to use the gifts and talents God has given you.
Thank you for this past year of time spent with your kids. Learning personalities and preferences has been fun and challenging; and each child has blessed me in his or her own unique way.
Looking forward to a great year serving with you.

If your child is missing M&M's on Sunday evenings at 4:30, they are missing out on our missions education opportunities. Remind them that Jesus said "Go make disciples" and this is why we learn about missions - and live on mission. Not to do good, but to make discipes of Jesus Christ.
It's a Fun Fall Giveaway!!!
On October 31 from 5-8pm in our parking lot, we will hand out backpacks stuffed with Frisbees, salvation bracelets, and information about our church. If you have the gift of gab and/or the gift of giving, this is the event for you. Come hang out with your Cook friends and meet new ones as they walk past our church and park in our parking lot headed to trick or treat. If you would like to take advantage of this grand opportunity for outreach, sign up on the bulletin board at the foot of the stairs.
Fun Family Fellowship
October 29 will be our first ever Fun Family Fellowship. This event is designed especially as a fellowship time for members of Cook. The concession stand will be open, so bring a few dollars for dinner and hang out with your kids playing games, having fun, and enjoying each other. If you would like to contribute candy, the bulletin board outside the nursery has apples and pumpkins ripe for picking that suggest needed donations. Working the games more your style? See Rebecca to find out where your hands and feet can be best utilized.
M&M's and M&M's Minis continues...
Sunday evenings are a blast learning music to praise Jesus and learning about missionaries, missions work, and opportunities to share Jesus. Don't miss it on Sundays from 4:30-5:50pm.
Wednesday evenings from 6-7pm you can Dig Into God's Guidebook! Our first through third grades are learning to recite the books of the Old Testament, and fourth through sixth grades are learning to quote verses with a very small prompt. Your kids are amazingly adept at memory work. Keep up the good work Kaye Ambrose, William Hogan, Leigh Ann Williams, Sharee Levite, Tiffany Holstead, Leah Simmons, Thomas Boyd, April Fox and Ginger Willis. Your dedication is paying off!
Our preschoolers are digging into the Bible, learning how every story told, points to Jesus. What a great theme for them to understand! Thank you Holly Cooksey, Claire Carroll, Gabriela Johnson, and Stephanie Roberts for leading these kids.
