We had another great day at Hero Central! The children heard about Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount and learned about the Beatitudes (Matthew 4:23-5:12), made picture frames and hero signs in crafts, enjoyed Pretzel Power Lfts (cheese, grapes and crackers) with Power Jammies, made Super Stress Balls in science and had Hero Challenges recreation. Our 5th & 6th grade mission team put their faith into action by participating in a project with the Salvation Army and First UMC, putting together school supply backpacks and then worked on HOPE pillows for the nursing homes.
In music, the children are working hard on songs for our VBS service this Sunday the 16th at 9:30. We hope that everyone can join us!
Our guiding verse for the week is “Do good! Seek peace and go after it!” from Psalm 34:14b. We are enjoying all the activities this week to help us discover our strength in God, become Heroes, and explore how to serve God and God’s mission for our lives!
