Throughout January we will be talking about Jesus’ parables. We will be learning how parables are earthly stories with a heavenly meaning. The memory verse for the month of January is worth 15 KC points each week. It is Psalm 119:11 “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”
We will be making fishing poles and fish to catch in crafts on January 17. On January 31 we will attempt to have a sledding party if there is at least 3 inches of snow. Each child should bring snow gear (pants, gloves, hats, scarves, boots…) and a sled (optional). Please have your name on all your belongings. Everyone will get about 20-25 minutes to sled. The rest of the time will be spent having snacks, singing songs, and hearing the Bible story. We will be sledding in two groups. If you own a sled, please consider letting kids from the other group borrow your sled so everyone can have lots of fun!
The bonus Bible reading worksheet this month will be from Luke 14:16-24. Kids can pick up a worksheet after the 1/10 Kid’s Club. 4 KC pts. will be awarded for each correct answer (up to 20 KC pts. total). Worksheets are due by the end of the 1/24 Kid’s Club. Bible Reading Bookmarks are available every week to encourage kids to read each week’s KC Bible Story. They are available at the announcements’ table, right outside the partitions in the gym.
Kid’s Club Operate according to the Hillsdale Community Schools’ schedule. If the Hillsdale Community Schools cancels school on a Wednesday, there will be no KC that night.
