Hello Reign Forest Friends,
This past Sunday, we started our month’s theme on GRATITUDE: Letting others know you see how they’ve helped you.
Have you ever paused to think about everything God has done for you? He created a planet that’s perfectly suited for otters and ostriches and you. Then, He sent His Son, Jesus, to that planet to die and be raised to life so He could have a forever relationship with you. Through the month, we’ll help kids refocus on all that God has done for them. Because when you know what God has done for you, YOU CAN BE THANKFUL—ALWAYS.
Key Question: What are you grateful for? We kick off a month on gratitude by helping kids to refocus on their own life and discover reasons they can be thankful. We’re so busy with life that we don’t take the time to pause and notice what God has done for us. We hope kids take the time throughout the year to ask themselves this question.
We start our look at gratitude with Psalm 100 where we read, Shout for joy to the Lord, everyone on earth. Worship the Lord with gladness. Come to Him with songs of joy, (NIrV). God has done so much for us through the gift of Jesus, it’s only fitting that we respond to Him with a heart of gratitude.
Bottom Line: Celebrate what God has done. We hope to give kids and families the opportunity to think about all the ways God has shown them love and faithfulness throughout the year. We want them to get excited and celebrate God’s goodness.
Memory Verse: There will not be any memory verses from Nov to end of Dec as we will be soon start working on a Christmas play. This is a great time to catch up on some verses if need be.
As a reminder – this coming Sunday, Nov 12 will be our celebration parade for the Hope Rescue Mission. Please help by bringing some hygiene items, single serving snacks, and some warm men’s clothing (gloves, hats, flannel shirts, and winter coats).
Have a blessed week,
The Reign Forest Team
