Forgiveness Is Up To You

Throughout the Bible, we can read about the importance of forgiveness. Right from the start, God made a way for Adam and Eve to have a relationship with Him again. The same is true for us. No matter how much we mess up, God will always make a way to forgive us. When it comes to forgiveness, we can also look to Jesus, who chose to forgive even those who were crucifying Him. Because of God’s amazing forgiveness, we should work hard to forgive others.

Monthly Parent Note

We believe that when parents and church work together to be intentional in how we spend time with our kids, we can make a bigger impact on their future. All month long, we’ll be talking about deciding that someone who has wronged you, doesn’t have to pay. That’s FORGIVENESS! Please use the resources below to help you understand what your child learned in church each week and get ideas on how to continue the conversation at home. You can get more specific weekly information from the Parent Cue. And if you’re wondering what songs we are singing, please check out our Spotify playlist. This list is full of songs that will keep your toes tapping all month long.
