December 9th & 10th Parent Note for Remix/Revolution
Hi Remix, Revolution & SPIN Parents,
In Luke 12:13-21, we find Jesus sharing a parable about a rich young man. This rich man experienced such a harvest that he ended up with more than he needed. Instead of seeing how he could use the extra to help others, he stores it up for himself. He loses his life and doesn’t get to enjoy it anyway.
Bottom Line: Don’t miss your chance to give. When it comes to what we have, we need to think about others and focus on relationships more than getting more stuff. Being generous is difficult when we’re consumed with wanting more. We want kids to understand that when we focus on others, we’re more likely to see the needs around us and be generous in how we help meet those needs.
Key Question: Why is it important to give to others? Kids have been told since they were very young that they should share and give to others. As they grow into adolescence, it’s important for them to understand why that’s true. We’ll give kids a chance to answer that question for themselves, and discover that generosity changes your entire perspective on the world God made. Life isn’t about me. It’s about what God is doing through me to show His love to the world.

Our Coats and Coins Drive has started! Bring in new or gently used coats to help keep those in need warm. You can also have your kids bring in coins up to Remix and Revolution to help support FMSC. Remix, Revolution & SPIN have a goal of $1000! Hope you can help! We will be collecting both coats and coins through December 17th.
See you this weekend!
