Current Series

June 2024 - RECESS

5-WEEK SERIES ON JUDGES, RUTH, & SAMUEL For a lot of us, recess is one of our favorite parts of the school day. We get to play dodgeball, hopscotch, or race our friends around the play area. Recess helps us to stay active so we can grow strong, but it also gives us a chance to grow in our relationships. In this five-week series, kids will discover through the stories in the books of Judges, Ruth, and 1 Samuel the unexpected ways God can help them grow. As they do, they’ll learn how God helps us grow stronger, helps us belong, answers our prayers, tells us what is true, andcan use anything we give.


SUNDAY FUNDAY!

Recess

June 2 2024 - This week we kicked off our new series RECESS! We played some 4 square and hopscotch and did some exercise! We read from Judges 6-7. Our lake kids learned about Gideon and his army of 300. We learned that through their faith in God they were able to defeat 100,000 men. This scripture shows us that strength isn't just physical, through our faith in God we gain gain strength that is stronger than physical strength.

Throwback

May 26th 2024 - For our last week of this series we make our final stop in the 1970's! This week our Lake kids looked at fun trends and styles of the 70's and learned the story of the rich man and Lazarus from Luke 16:19-31. Our Lake kids learned that we need to love others and not look down on them.


May 19th 2024 - This week we continue to roll back the clock another decade to the 1980's! Lake kids got a dose of a popular 80's game show Jeopardy! to understand our scripture passage this week. We read from Matthew 20:1-16 the parable of the vineyard workers. Our Lake kids learned through this parable that God excepts all people equally whether you have worked hard as a christian for many years or you are at the starting line of your journey with God.


May 12th 2024 - This week we took it back another decade to the 1990's! Lake kids looked at scripture through a the popular 90's era live sitcom show. We read from Matthew 18:23-35 and learned about how God forgave our ultimate debt... sin. Jesus teaches us that because of this ultimate forgiveness we need to forgive others of what is in comparison small debts.


May 5th 2024 - In Lake kids we kicked. off our Throwback series with the 2000's! Lake kids dove into scripture in a very 2000's way, we read from Matthew 7:1-5 the speck and the plank but in a tv singing competition! Through this we learned not to judge others. Our big idea for this week is "It's always good to be humble". Next week we will enter the next era of a series, the 90's!

WOW!

April 28th 2024 - This week was our final lesson in our WOW series where we learned about the amazing miracles that Jesus performed for people. This week we read from Matthew 14:22-36 about Jesus walking on water. We learned how Jesus showed Peter that he could walk on water through his faith in Jesus but when Peter takes his eyes off Jesus he began to sink. Our Lake kids learn that if we stay focused on our faith in Jesus we can make it through any hard situation. It is when we look away from Jesus and into ourselves that we struggle. We look forward to the month of May as we enter our new series Throwback! Stay tuned!


April 21st 2024 - This week our Lake kids learned about how Jesus provides for us! Our Lake kids read from John chapter 6, Jesus feeds the 5000. Through scripture and tangram tiles our Lake kids learn that Jesus has the power to take a few loaves of bread and fish and turn them into enough food to feed 5000+ people and in our lives he provides all we need when we believe in Jesus and make Him the center of our lives. We also reflected on all the things that Jesus has provided in our lives.


April 14th 2024 - This week our Lake kids continued to learn about the miracles of Jesus! We read about the power of Jesus in Luke 8:22-25 and how we need to have faith in the power of Jesus. Our experiment this week was the chemical reaction between dish soap water and dry ice and how when we have faith in Jesus and pray for His help and guidance that we can find a solution to any problems that we may have. Using a battery, light bulb and some wire we showed the Lake kids how a circuit works and that if we we don't stay connected with God our "circuit" isn't complete.


April 7th 2024 - This week we kick of our new series Wow! In this series we are going to learn all about the miracles performed by Jesus! We read Luke 7:1-10 the faith of the centurion and how because of his faith in Jesus, Jesus healed the centurions servant from a great distance. We also made our own first aid kits to help heal our friends. Each Sunday our Lake kids will be doing Thought Experiments, each week we will ask the kids thought provoking questions about Jesus and they will write down their thoughts in the notebook. At the end of the series they will take the notebooks home so they will always be able to reflect on their thoughts. We did a volcano experiment with backing soda and vinegar to show the kids how prayer and caring for our friends can boost there healing!

The Lake kids played a game with tea lights that showed how when we spread the light of Jesus we can light a dark room! We read Jeremiah 31:31-34 and learned of the promise that God made to the Israelites and how no matter what they did wrong God always forgave them.

They read John 13:1-17.34-35 and learned about Jesus washing His disciples feet and how doing what is considered a lowly job was worth doing for His disciples to show them how much He loved them. In our activity Mrs. Ashley washed the feet of some of our Lake Kids and they were so excited that they washed each others feet! Some of our kids even went home and washed their parents feet!

Feb. 11th 2024- This week our Lake Kids blasted off into space and learned about how to connect with people in our lives!
