Welcome! If you have kids in elementary school, this home-based, faith resource is for you! If you have children in early childhood, their home-based, faith resources will be handed out in KiDSCOR! Kids of all ages will participate in the same monthly offering for missions and that information is included in the first paragraph below. May your family be blessed by God as you choose to spend time with each other and Him!
All KiDSCOR kids (Nursery, Early Childhood and Elementary)
Missions Project: During the months February and March, KiDSCOR will be receiving offering for food-related mission projects in Haiti and in Kansas City. Due to the extreme devastation of natural disasters in recent years, Haiti’s crops have been destroyed. Part of the money we collect will provide Haiti with trees and seeds for new gardens.
The Souper Bowl Food Drive will receive the money for people in Kansas City. Food will be purchased and distributed to local food banks where children and adults will receive it. Every coin and dollar received will be used to share Christ’s love with children in these ways. Please share your blessings!
On February 26 and March 5, the KiDSCOR offering will be contributed to our all-church capital campaign. The money the kiddos bring those two weeks will be given to help build a special place for mission and ministry that will serve for generations to come!
Prayer: Dear God, thank you for always being near to me. Thank you for helping me when I am afraid. Thank you that I can worship you wherever I am and for a very special church who understands that all people are valued and important to you. Please help me share your love with people near and far. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
Every day is a gift from God! No matter our situation or our age, we can celebrate and give thanks, even when we face challenges and fear. Encourage your family members to choose one day this week where they will be intentionally aware of the world around them. Invite them to use their senses of sight, sound, taste, touch and smell to soak in God’s presence in the everyday ordinary-ness of life. When you gather in the evening, ask each person to share God’s gifts in their day. You can draw, make a list or create a collage of what your family experienced. Seek to become more aware of God’s goodness and blessings on a daily basis and thank God often. When you feel anxious, review your lists or look at your pictures and thank God for being present always.
