Children's Ministry - April 2018

Spring is here and new life and changes are taking place all around us. The changes in children's ministry have been great. The help, support, and love is very appreciated. We could not have done it without everyone that has helped move, secure and pray over these changes. It has been a blessing. This is temporary and helps prepare us for future plans. We are excited and look forward to the vision our Children's Ministry Teams and staff have prayed about and God continues to guide. There is more to come in the months ahead.

We had lots of fun at our Easter Eggstravaganza this year. As each child opened the resurrection egg they found, they opened a part of Jesus testimony. It is very important for our children to know the story of His death, resurrection, and life. He lives yesterday, today, and tomorrow, that is so exciting, and should be shared with everyone.

This Spring, as flowers bloom and babies are birthed, remember He gives new life to everyone and everything in His timing. Sometimes the changes may come as a surprise or different than we wanted but, it is not a surprise to Him.

We have opportunities for you to serve in extended session and other children's ministries. Thank you for all you do to help grow a child in Christ's love.

April 6th CKC 6-9pm

Children's Ministry - March 2018

Exciting things are ahead in our children's ministry. We will be moving around and making some much needed changes. We have opportunities for you to help and be involved with Cook Kidz Ministry. Volunteering is awesome, and kids may not remember your name, but will always remember the love you shared. talents, let God use you in a mighty way and put them to use.

This Spring, as new life is everywhere around us, I think of how God has pruned me and continues to do that daily. He has taken away lots of
unwanted stuff and continues to make me better. God uses seasons in our lives to teach us faith, love, kindness, patience, self-control, joy, peace, goodness, and gentleness. Each spring season He bears the fruit, flowers, and new life. He reminds me of how important it is to live out my testimony everyday. Regardless of our past, we can overcome anything with the new life God gives us. He is always there to strengthen our faith and carry out our testimony. Share the love God has given you this season with others.

Children's Ministry - February 2018

The month of February brings lots of love to lives. The greatest love of all for any life, is Jesus Christ being the center and the most important love. He died on the cross for each of us, because He loves us so much. Think about that, and teach it to your families and friends. It will be the best gift for Valentine’s you can give anyone. It is the greatest agape’ love story. We all need His love in our life.

We have a lot of exciting things coming up in the months ahead, as we prepare to follow what God wants for Cook Kidz. You will start to hear about changes coming up and have opportunities to help.

We still need a few extended session helpers for Sunday mornings and evenings. We are growing and need some extra hearts and hands to help. If you would like to be a part of this ministry, contact me and I will get you plugged in.

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.
