Fruits of the Spirit

This summer the children will begin a new series about the Fruits of the Spirit.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Galatians 5:22-23.

Each week they will bring home a story about one of the "fruits" to share with you, along with a prayer sheet. If they do not have class on Sunday, because of vacations, etc. they can still participate in the study and the prayer sheet. A link will be placed on the Bethany Baptist Facebook Page along with our Children's Church newsletter. We look forward to helping the children grow in their relationship with God and watching them Love, Learn, and Serve.

Love: The First Fruit

The ability to love....children have it innately. They love without question and without judgement. This is a quality that over time may change. However, if we are believers then we have been called to walk in the Spirit. One fruit of the spirit is LOVE. This week the children will focus on ways to show their love for others. If God lives within us, then love will shine out of us. We love because He first loved us. God loves us unconditionally and without question...and we are called to love others the same way. Talk to your children about unconditional love....the love you have for them, the love they have for you, and the love God has for them. Help them understand that because God loved us so much he sent his only son to die so that we would have everlasting life.
