The Latest from Children’s Ministry
Focus week 1 JulyThere are some smaller lesser know holidays in the month of July. Celebration is all through out this month and if there is something I know we need it is celebration. As we launch this video we get ready for the Fourth of July and then as we move through this month we enter Christmas in July. I love Christmas not just because of the gifts but because of the One Special Gift Jesus. This week we look at the special gift Jesus offers us. Check out how Jesus gives us an eternal gift that rescues all people from sin and into a relationship with God.
Base Camp Online Focus 6 28 20This week we watch Peter learn how Jesus changes the way we see people. Have you ever met someone with a rivalry? For instance what is your favorite sports team? What is their biggest rivalry? When we are around people who love our rivals more than our team it can feel challenging or even like we might be divided. God never intended it to be this way. Sin already separates us and He came to rescue and repair that broken part of us.
In a World where division over what race you were gifted, if you wear PPE or not or how you were wired by God to think and live seems to divide many we see God desires that we accept and love everyone. We watch how a relationship with God and heaven is open to all people of all times of all places and races. Different is embraced by God and His followers. We are unified by Jesus and love others because He first loved us. Join us this week as we see what we can't see because Jesus gave us Faith through His death and resurrection.

Maybe for you it is crackers, water or the dark. What ever it is that you fear God wants you to trust Him as we walk through this life. This week we watch as a man who is super scary is struck by a bright light , has an encounter with Jesus who transforms His life. When this man tries to tell others about Jesus and how He changed his life people are afraid and are not sure how to respond. Come check out with us in Base Camp Online how knowing Jesus can help you face your fears.

(Awana, K-5th Grade)
To develop moms, dads, sons, daughters and leaders to:
- Be present – see who is around you, live in the moment and connect your faith to life.
- Create safe environments where we feel free ask questions about life and our relationships about Jesus.
- Partner to live out our faith every day.
- Make our faith personal, living it out everyday in all of our life circles: home work or school.
- Move our faith out from where we are into the next phase of life.
My greatest passion is not only to see girls and boys come to know Jesus Christ but also to be a life coach for moms and dads, assisting them in navigating these different phases of their children’s lives. Each phase of shaping these creative young minds to live and love like Jesus has its own set of tools and questions to be answered.
Elisabeth and I have been through various stages of child raising, presently having children ages 21 and 18 and a 14. We desire greatly to encourage parents, to supporting the family in each phase as well as to teach children to have a passion to love others, to love God, and to discover what it means to live a full life in Jesus.
