Happy December! This weekend, we look at Luke 1:26-56, when Gabriel came and made a huge announcement to Mary. God was about to rescue the world through Jesus, and she had an important role to play. Mary was overwhelmed by God’s love for the world and the part she got to play by fulfilling God’s plan to send a Savior.
In Remix, the bottom line is God can use anyone to meet others’ needs. For whatever reason, kids may feel like God can’t use them to show others His love. We hope they see, through the story of Mary, that God can use anyone to show His compassion to the world.
In Revolution, the key question is: What are you willing to do to meet others’ needs? Mary sacrificed a lot to carry Jesus and raise Him. God may ask us to do something big to point others to Him. We hope that preteens start thinking about the ways God can use them to show compassion and meet the needs of others.
Here are some of the newest happenings in our program:
This month is all about compassion, so we are providing several avenues for kids to serve and help others in need:
Coat Drive. New Hope is collecting coats of all sizes to spread the warmth. There will be a coat drop off area in the atrium during all services until December 16th.
Holiday of Hope. Remix, Rev, & SPIN have been collecting cookie mixes, frosting, and sprinkles for less fortunate families in the area. This weekend (Dec 8 & 9) is the last weekend to bring in items. You can drop off items in the collection box outside of the Remix Room.
Revolution Worship Stations. In order to make worship more fun and engaging for our 4th and 5th graders, we will be trying out worship stations. Check out the Revolution Script under the volunteer tab for more details.
If you have any questions about our program, feel free to reach out! If you are a new family, I would love to help you understand how our program works.
Have a blessed rest of your week.
