Hello Reign Forest Friends,
We finish the month and this series in Revelation 21:3-5a with something John wrote towards the end of his life. John’s been exiled to live out his life alone on a remote island for prisoners. While he’s there, he has a vision of a future that’s more wonderful than we could ever fully understand. But we do know that God is making all things new. And because of Jesus, we get to experience life forever with God.
Bottom Line: Following Jesus will turn out greater than you can imagine. Because of their developmental stage, it’s hard for kids to imagine life that lasts forever. Our prayer is that through this lesson, they’ll catch a glimpse of what life can be like when we follow Jesus. Not only is God with us now, but we’ll be with God forever. We may not understand it all, but we can have faith that it will be absolutely amazing!
We had a great time in Reign Forest on Sunday. Our conversations (or should I say “stories” that lead to more rabbit-trail sharing) were lively and entertaining. After our sharing time and prayer requests, we were able to get our two introductory activities completed. These activities were geared toward our theme of FOCUS - one activity used our eyes to focus, and the other activity allowed us to use our mind to focus. This was wildly amusing! Sadly, however, we ran out of time before we could watch our video. As we were dismissing, I promised the children that I would forward a link to their parents so they could watch the video at home. My hope is that you’ll have an opportunity to catch the story behind July’s FOCUS: Take a Closer Look theme on Faith (Trusting in what you can’t see because of what you can see). Below is a recap of the story and the link to watch the video. ENJOY!!
Thanks for allowing us to spend time with your children in Reign Forest!!
Have a great week!
