October 6/7 Parent Note for SPIN/Remix/Revolution
Remix, Rev & SPIN Parents,
Here are some of the newest happenings in our program:
Small Groups. We are officially switching back over to Small Groups this weekend. PRAISE GOD! This means kids will be split up according to grade and will have designated time to discuss the curriculum. If your child is in Fourth or Fifth grade, they will meet in the Game Room for the service. If you have any questions about how small groups work please email me! I’d love to help.
Change 4 Change. For the next four weeks, we’re challenging the kids to collect all that spare change around the house and put that money towards something life changing. All they have to do is fill up a canister with change, dollars, even checks and bring it back any Saturday or Sunday between Oct. 13th - Oct 28th. All funds collected will go towards Feed My Starving Children. When Remix, Rev & SPIN reach the goal of $2,000 to feed 24 children for a year, then we’ll have Donuts on November 3rd and 4th!
Worship Meeting. Is your child interested in learning the dances for the songs we do each weekend in Remix? If so, we invite your child to attend our worship meeting this weekend, Saturday, October 6th from 4-5 pm. During this meeting, kids will have the opportunity to eat some yummy snacks while learning all of the songs for the month! We’d love to have kids help out the worship leader on stage. Email me to RSVP or if you have any questions!
During the month of October, we are focusing on contentment. In our first week, we start in Philippians 4:11b-13. In this letter, Paul is writing to the church at Philippi to help them understand more about what it means to follow Jesus. Paul shares how they can be content and even have joy regardless of their situation in life. This is something that Paul has had to learn from experience. His example of contentment in the face of difficulty is a lesson we can all learn from. Take a look at the Parent Cue for some ways to reinforce what was taught during the service.
Bottom Line: God can help you be ok no matter what. We can’t promise kids that when they follow Jesus that everything in their life will work out just the way they want it to. However, we can promise them that even if life isn’t okay, God can help them be okay with their circumstances. We pray that no matter what kids are facing, they’ll learn to trust that God will give them what they need to get through it.
Here are two questions you can ask your child after the service:
What does it mean to be content?
What does Paul say about being content in Philippians 4:11b-13?
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to reach out!
Have a blessed week!
