September 22/23 Parent Note for Remix/Revolution
Hello Remix, Revolution, & SPIN Parents,
This weekend we see how Nehemiah dealt with some distractions in Nehemiah 2:19-20, 4, & 6. Not everyone liked what Nehemiah was doing. He had enemies who tried to distract the people from finishing the wall. But he saw through their plan and stayed focused on the job God gave him to finish.
From cleaning their rooms to finishing their homework, kids have all sorts of things that need to be done. But it often doesn’t take long for cleaning a room to become playing with the toys you’re supposed to be picking up. We hope kids will see that focusing on the task at hand is important. God has all sorts of jobs for us to do. We can trust Him to give us the focus we need to finish them.
Here are some questions you can ask your child to deepen your discussion:
What are you distracted by?
How can we avoid these distractions that hold us from accomplishing what needs to be done?
Baptism: New Hope will have a baptism on September 29th and 30th. Kids will be in the service with adults during this weekend. To download the Start Here Guide to help you begin a conversation with your child about what baptism means, Click here.
Serving Information: Due to a limited number of volunteers, we are continuing to combine Remix and Revolution in Zones during the month of September. Our goal is to open small groups in October but we need you to ‘Say Yes!’ and get involved in volunteering. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in getting involved, sign up for our first training event – It’s a Phase, Don’t Miss It - by going here.
Change 4 Change: We are starting a giving initiative called Change 4 Change on October 6th and 7th. All funds collected for this event will go towards Feed My Starving Children. More details coming soon!
Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions about anything. Have a great rest of your week.
