Deuteronomy 6 speaks to us - especially in these unique times:

“Hear, O Israel: dThe LORD our God, the LORD is one.2 

You eshall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 

And fthese words that I command you today shall be on your heart. gYou shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. 

hYou shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 

iYou shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”

 

I would love to know how you are doing.  

How are your children doing with school? 

How can I be praying over the next few weeks?

Preschool K & Kindergarten - Growing in God

Travel with the Israelites to trust and obey God! Like the Israelites, we also have much to learn!! GROWING IN GOD teaches our kids that God is loving, merciful, and powerful. We can depend on him for what we need. We sin against God and fail him over and over—and yet he provides abundantly!

Our kids will be pointed to Jesus—the One whom God sent to deal with sin once and for all.

4 year olds through the 4th grade will ‘journey’ together learning with the Israelites (us) about trusting and obeying God. We will memorize Psalm 121 together and learn to trust His Word. Each week will include:

    • a video of each lesson , 
    • coloring and activity pages, 
    • parent pages to help with devotions pdf
    • Psalm 121 Memory Helps

Each week the video will be sent to every family along with the pdf resources you can use. A follow up reminder activity will be sent mid-week to encourage Psalm 121 Memory and to continue conversation about the lesson in your daily routines or meal times.  A spiral notebook makes a great journal to look up words in the scriptures of Psalm 121 and to draw a picture of what each verse means.

 

5th & 6th Grades - Matthew to John

In this study, your preteens and young teens will study all four Gospels in a way they never have before! Sure, they know about Jesus’ miraculous birth, his miracles and life, and his death and resurrection. But they are now old enough to explore the story of Christ through the eyes of the Gospel writers—by comparing, contrasting, and examining Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. They will learn awesome Bible study skills while also seeing the life and ministry of Jesus come alive through these eyewitnesses and disciples of Christ.

Most important, we pray that through this study they will come to a greater love for our Savior and the work of redemption he provided through his sacrifice.

Each lesson in this study also does something crucial for your kids: It ties each event to God’s redemptive promise and plan to redeem a people for himself by sending the Messiah, Jesus Christ. The Bible is God’s story of salvation through Christ, who is the focal point of all Scripture.

Each week a video lesson will be emailed to parents.  Once a month will be an 'in-person' lesson with the famous Mr. Brian on Oct 4th.

 

If you are not receiving the weekly video lessons, please email bpalm@valleymadison.com.
Children's Church
Children's Church is open to Preschool K - 1st grade.

 

Currently we are not offering Children's Church during our Sunday Morning Worship Service.  

We have been using Kids' Quest Catechism Club to build a foundation of Biblical Truths.  Using the Questions and Answers to learn and know about our faith.  We have learned Q/A 1-32.

If you would like to participate, please contact Betsy Palm @ bpalm@valleymadison.com for a "First Catechism" booklet of Q&A.  

We are using Catechism games to keep memorizing.  We would love to meet in your driveway for a TicTacToe challenge!!
