Sunday Bible Class
Our curriculum is Bible Studies for Life. The lessons scheduled for this week are:
Spanish Preschool: Cuarto amigos ayudaron
English Preschool: People Welcomed Jesus
School Age: The Triumphal Entry
Please take the time to look at the Activity Pages that your children bring home. You will find the Bible story, suggested Scripture reading for the week, and instructions for how to download the Bible Studies for Life app.
We love seeing your children in Bible class. The more frequently they come, the more likely they are to build stronger relationships with the other children and with the teachers. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

For the past 2 weeks, we have been promoting the Million Meal Pack that’s coming up on April 29. The Miami Dolphins with AARP and US Hunger host this event every year with the goal of packing one million healthy meals for seniors who need it the most.
This is an ideal service opportunity for families to work together that can include children. The instructions are clear for how everyone can participate in the process.
In his book, Think Orange, Reggie Joiner says that spiritual formation is closely connected to the act of serving. Kids (and adults too) need to make a hands-on investment of their time and energy in serving others. This will help mature their hearts to care for others. Churches and families that serve others together can grow their faith in God together.
And Robert Wolgemuth has a chapter in his book, The Most Important Place on Earth, highlighting our role in the lives of our kids as priests. With this he means that we have the privilege to be the connecting link between our children and God. This book is an excellent resource for creating a healthy Christian home.
Both of these trusted resources remind us that the opportunities we find for service matter in the development of our children’s spiritual lives. We are working to build more of this into our regular activities for our children. And the Million Meal Pack gives us a chance to let our children join with our entire church for service.
Please set aside the afternoon of April 29 to participate with us in this impactful event. Signups will continue through Easter Sunday. You should register with Carlos Carbajal at (305) 910-6203 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
