Here comes July & August…

What’s happening in Christian Education for kids and their caregivers in July and August at FUMC?

Worship and movies !

You can do both together as a family! Our summer film series features selections from What’s in the Bible with Buck Denver. (Yes, these videos are appropriate for adults and kids! Think of the family discussions this will open up!)

Watch a short preview of this series… (if you are reading this in an email click here to view the video).

This summer we are encouraging families to attend worship together at Green Wood and to come to our video lessons on Sunday mornings… YES, as a family… in the air conditioned Chapel. Afterwards there’s Lemonade on the Lawn for some fellowship time.

Join us!

Here is the schedule for July and August downtown on Sunday mornings…

Date To learn about…
July 6 Attend worship & Communion as a family.
July 13 Watch the story of Jesus in the Gospels; all in one viewing! Can it be done? Big Question: Jesus doesn’t “make” us follow him. He invites us. Why would anyone refuse that?
July 20 Back to the Old Testament. Genesis means beginning! Big Question: Who picked the books to be in the Bible and what does a cannon have to do with it?
July 27 Jumping ahead to songs and poetry books in the Old Testament; the Book of Psalms is the people talking back to God! We can talk back to God?! (Sure! Let him know how you feel.)
August 3 Attend worship & Communion as a family.
August 10 Next stop: History books in the Old Testament. Some history of King Saul and David. King Saul is messing things up, so God sends Samuel out to “anoint” a new king. I wonder who that will be?
August 17 The book of Esther. I wonder if we’ll be casting “purs” and yelling “Boo Haman”?
August 24
Moving on to the book of Acts. Big Learning: Jesus knew that if he left, the Holy Spirit could be everywhere and the message could explode into the world!
August 31 Attend worship/Communion as a family.

 

Or if you can’t make Sunday morning then catch the action for kids at Green Wood on Saturday evenings…

Date To learn about…
July 5 Watch part one of video (#10) that starts the New Testament. The “Big Question” is: How could one man, Jesus, solve the huge problems of our sinful world?
July 12 Watch the story of Jesus in the Gospels; all in one viewing! Can it be done?
July 19 Jumping back to History books in the Old Testament: King Saul and David. King Saul is messing things up, so God sends Samuel out to “anoint” a new king. I wonder who that will be?
