Hi NLUMC Families!
Can you believe it? Easter is coming soon! In preparation for the Holy Week, we’re learning about some of the events leading up to the death and resurrection of Jesus. This week, we’ll be hearing about Jesus’ last supper with His disciples. 
When you’re ready, watch the lesson video with your kids. It’s fun for the whole family and there is an opportunity to pause and discuss. Afterwards, there are two great worship videos for you to choose from: one is for older kids and one is for younger kids. (You can find all of the videos here.) https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLadc9fo1pca-raYM8bIPlzrl5SZfSBBIH

Join us ONLINE!

Hi Children’s Ministry parents!

We might not be able to meet in person, but church is still kickin’! This is proof that the body of Christ cannot and should not be contained by 4 walls.

With that in mind, we’re so excited to share this video resource with you and your children. Watch it together as a family and answer the discussion questions when prompted. The video is in the style of a fun morning talk show for kids. Both you and your kids will LOVE it! And best of all, it’s designed to help your children learn and grow in their walk with Jesus. (Click here to access the video on YouTube.)

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

Bible Story: Jesus Washes the Disciples’ Feet (John 13:1-17)

Big Idea: Jesu ed others and wants us to do the same.

Memory Verse: “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last. They must be the servant of everyone.” Mark 9:35 (NIrV)

If you do not already follow us on Facebook (NLUMC Families), please do so! Every weekday we will be posting activities for you and your children to do together that align with the week’s lesson.

Don’t forget to check back here each week for a new lesson!

Finally, I want to leave you with a blessing based on Philippians 4:7. I think it’s fitting for these challenging times. May the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, guard the hearts and minds of you and your family in Christ Jesus. Amen.

In Him,

Rev. Beth Graham

Our Children’s Ministry offers Sunday School for kids ages 3 years old (and potty trained) through Sixth grade. This year, we are excited to announce that we will be exploring a new VBS format. Children will gather together for worship, bible stories,and a bible verse memory time before rotating with Sunday School crews through crafts, science experiments, and games. We are very excited to engage with the children and and help them learn more about God on this new adventure!

Peacemakers

Peacemakers is for preteens in Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Grades. We know preteens are unique and different than anyone else. They are beginning to think for themselves and transitioning from childhood to adolescence. But most importantly, they want to “own” their relationship with Jesus. This group gathers on the SECOND Friday of each month (locations vary).
