The memory verse for the month of February is Luke 10:27:  He answered, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.‘”   The bold & underlined sections can be said for 12 KC pts. or the whole verse can be said for 20 KC pts.

From January – March We are going to look at parables Jesus told.  Parables are earthly stories with a heavenly meaning.   We will look at these parables to see what Jesus teaches us about His Kingdom, Himself, and how it affects us!

On February 4 we will have a sledding party if there is at least 3 inches of snow.  Each child shoKris CECuld bring snow gear (pants, gloves, hats, scarves, and boots) and a sled (optional).  Please have your name on all your belongings.  Everyone will get 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!

On February 11 we will be making our annual Valentine’s Day deliveries.  We will be decorating heart shaped cookies and delivering them to people in our community.  All of this will happen between 7:00 – 8:15 PM.  Parents, please be advised that children will be leaving the HFM campus and traveling either in a vehicle driven by a KC volunteer or walking with a KC volunteer.  A signed permission slip is required for children to participate in the deliveries.  PermissionForm (click for permission slip)
