Hi Reign Forest Friends,
Our theme for November is gratitude. Throughout this month, we hope kids will learn to be grateful for everything God has done: for the world God made, for the promises God has kept, and for the new life God offers the world through Jesus. When we remember all of these things, we can always be thankful.
This week, we started off this series with something Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians 5:18: "Give thanks no matter what happens. God wants you to thank him because you believe in Christ Jesus." It's pretty clear. Giving thanks is something God wants us to do. No matter what happens, we can be thankful for Jesus and God's gift of salvation.
Bottom Line: You always have something to be grateful for. When life is hard, or even if life is normal, it can be difficult to find why you should be thankful—especially for kids. We pray that as kids think about this bottom line, they'll remember that they can always be thankful to God for sending Jesus to be our Savior.
This week, we also started our Christmas play. With this, there will be no new memory verses until after Christmas. This is a great time for your child(ren) to get caught up with either Reign Forest verses or school verses if they need to. The children can say up to seven verses at this point. Kids saying school verses can't get ahead of the number of Reign Forest verses that were given.
