Everyone has traditions. From Christmas traditions to daily routines, we always lean to following patterns. But has our relationship with Christ become overshadowed by our traditions? Are our routines based on Him and His word, or man-made guidelines in order to be “more holy.” Continue reading
We know, we know, that headline is a little over-the-top. But we are JUST SO EXCITED!
Are you ready for the announcement? Like really, really ready?
Here it is:
Yesterday, our lesson from Crayons: The Colorful Life of King David was about David wanting to build the temple for the Ark of the Covenant, but God said it wasn’t time. As the kids talked about the story, one looked at me and said:
“Miss Hollie? You know, a lot of things happen that we don’t want. And a lot of things don’t happen that we want to. But we’ve gotta remember that God is God, and sometimes, it’s just not His time yet.”
“God, You are my God; I eagerly seek You. I thirst for you; my body faints for You in a land that is dry, desolate, and without water.” Psalm 63:1
One of my favorite moments as children’s director is seeing it “click.” You know, when you are teaching kids something and they understand. Like, actually understand. Not just hear, not just know, but understand. When they have that “aha!” moment, and truly recognize what it means.
Children matter to God.
Recently at Rooted Kids Ministry, we began two new curriculum, Crayons and Campfire Stories, both by Children’s Ministry Deals. (We are using Crayons: The Colorful Life of King David on Sunday mornings and Campfire Stories at night.) So far, we absolutely LOVE the series! Here’s a quick preview into what our students are learning!
As the 4th of September marked the start of the new church year, it also marked the beginning of the Rooted Children’s Ministry Bible verse memorization challenge. At Rooted, we regularly teach our students the importance of knowing scripture, and we show our students that we are called to cherish and hide His Word in our hearts.
Rooted Children’s Ministry at Macedonia Baptist Church in Gadsden, Alabama is committed to serving, teaching, and equipping its students with the knowledge and skills to share Christ and to live a life that glorifies Him. Rooted was inspired by Colossians 2:6-7, which says “Therefore, as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, overflowing with gratitude.” We want our students to become firmly planted in the Word of God. Once roots are secure, they can produce fruit by which others will see Jesus. We pray for and encourage our students, and we hope that you will consider visiting Macedonia Baptist Church!
