Dear Parents, Grandparents, & Mentors of Calvary:
I hope you have had a great week!
Your K-5th grade children will be challenged that “when you focus on what you used to have, you can miss what you have now” through the story of the Israelites in the desert (Exodus 16:2-21, 17:1-4). Parent Cue: This week, at dinner, ask: Instead of wishing for more “things” all the time, what can you focus on that will allow you to grow stronger in the things that matter?
Your Pre-K children will be learning about the time King David looked for someone related to Jonathon so that he could show kindness to them (1 Samuel 20:14-17, 2 Samuel 9:1-13). Parent Cue: This week, at bed time, think of ways to help others and say the Bible verse: “Two are better than one. They can help each other [clean their room].”
Join us this Saturday (May 14th) from 11am to 1pm for our annual Mother/Daughter Tea where we will be encouraged that we are God’s masterpieces. For more information or to volunteer: contact Gayleen Peterson.
We will be celebrating all that God has done in the hearts of the children and all that they have accomplished at the Awana Awards Ceremony on May 25th. Join us at 6:30 pm to celebrate with us. There will be a cupcake reception following the ceremony.
We will have the new kindergartners and third graders step up to their new classes on June 5th. If they are not ready for this transition, it is fine for them to stay in their old classes; but we will be encouraging them to step up on that Sunday.
We will be recognizing the graduating fifth graders on Graduation Sunday (June 12th) in second service.
Mark June 11th on your calendars for the Father/Son Amazing Race. More details to come.
See you Sunday!
“Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up” (Deuteronomy 6:5-7, NIV84).
