Poor Joshua!

The end of Moses the beginning of Joshua

Could you imagine the fear of Joshua?!?!

"Hey guess what Joshua? You are taking over for Moses....Good Luck!"

So rightly so our memory verse is Joshua 1:9

We reward the kids who have taken the time to memorize it.  I told them I would take whatever version they wanted (apparently the quizers already know this in the Old King James Version).

Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage: do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

The 10 Commandments

We had such a blast today! With the help of Rob and Josh we had the finale of Hebrew Idol.  Damien was a gorilla, Rob a frog and Josh the cow.  It was a pretty sweet dance off.  Poor Damien was so hot in that suit, I wish we had pics.

There isn't Sunday School next week but for the week after they need to know all 10 Commandments.  If you click on this link it is very very helpful in knowing them.

Kids Church, on Crutches!!!!

Sunday March 25, 2012
I didn't update the blog last week and I am very sorry. I kept meaning to do it, and then somehow it was Sunday, boo!
Last week's memory verse was found in Psalms....121:2
My help comes from the Lord, maker of heaven and earth.
So now onto next week. We are rapidly trying to get through Moses so we can do the Passover next week. We usually emphasize the burning bush when we teach about Moses, so we decided to see if the kids could recall the plagues and put them in order. The boys had three in order and the girls had one, so we hopefully helped them put all 10 to memory in case they ever need to know them in a trivia game, lol. We are so blessed to have Bro Damien in Kids Church, so next time you see him let him know you appreciate him so much!!!!!!! He did an excellent job telling the kids about the burning bush. Also shout out to Emily Criss for bringing her friend Vicki!!!!! We enjoy her and you so much.
Next week's Memory Verse:
Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground Exodus 3:5
(we always give NIV reference, but if you prefer KJV that works for us too!)
Can you put the plagues in order??????? Have your kid quiz you. If you get them right and your child vouches for you I will give you a candy bar :).

Sunday March 4 2012

I have no idea what happened in Sunday School; and I am great with that. I have spent the last week in Maui HI, RELAXING!!!

I stayed on the Lahaina end of the island, but went everywhere (but Hana, next time for sure). My favorite day was Monday. Joe and I went to the top of the Volcano, over 10,000 feet to watch the sunrise. We did get up at 4 am for this adventure, but wow so worth it. Hundreds of people gathered together to watch the sun come up at 6:42 am. When packing for Maui, one doesn't bring a jacket, gloves, or a scarf...I was freezing!!! When the sun made it's appearance it was AMAZING. The road to the top is so scary, it's dark, very windey, and it takes over an hour. The ride down is just as awful...don't ride the brakes, oh and look out for all the crazy people who spent over $100 to ride a shuttle up at 3am and ride a mountain bike down. Joe really wanted to do that; 28 miles in the cold to the bottom. I am so glad I was able to use Dave Ramsey to talk him out of it; "Honey think of our budget."

I am so thankful the "Son" we seek is everywhere, and not a dangerous adventure for a one time experience. Urge your little ones to love the simple, sweet presence of Jesus in their lives. Anytime we want Him, anytime we need Him; we don't have to travel far on a windey road, thank God!!!

Memory Verse:

The Lord was with Him; He showed him kindness and granted him favor. Genesis 39:21

Him being Joseph, still learning about that guy.
