Feeling springy?

It seems like anytime Michigan has a little warmer weather we get excited about spring...but, I don't think we are close to spring yet. We know our Michigan winter's can linger into April sometimes! However, spring IS coming, and soon we will think about the end of the school year.

At church we end our educational season earlier than the schools, so this time is approaching quicker than we realize. Help your kids stay motivated and excited about church events. If you are engaged it will help them stay interested.

Please, remember to pray for our leaders. As the year end gets closer our kids get harder to teach. Help our teachers by staying interested in what the kids are doing in class each week. Ask questions.

Can you help the teachers by offering to provide a snack one week?

Can you offer to pray for your child's class or ask the teacher for prayer requests?

Are you encouraging Bible Memory at home?

10 Reasons to have your kids involved in Sunday school and catechism

While sleeping late can be nice, have you considered the benefits of Sunday School attendance for your child. Here are 10 reasons to make it a priority in your family.

1. Age Targeted Teaching: Where else can your kids get Biblical instruction that's focused toward their developmental abilities?

2. Friends: In Sunday School, your child will build positive friendships with their peers by discovering God's Word together.

3. It's Fun: Sunday School is not for entertainment, but our teachers do work hard to teach the Bible in ways that are relevant and fun for kids.

4. Spiritual Mentors: A dedicated teacher can be a Christian role model who supports you and helps inspire the faith of your child.

5. Systematic Bible Learning: Our curriculum is designed to give a broad foundation, so children will understand how all the parts of Scripture point to Christ.

6. Praying Teachers: Our teachers consistently pray for your child's faith to grow.

Coming to Sunday School gives another occasion for God to answer those requests.

7. Big Reward For a Small Investment: If you're already coming to church, just remember Sunday school and catechism will equal over 800 hours of additional Christian teaching before your child graduates.

8. Send the Right Message: Making Sunday School a priority shows your kids that God's Word really does matter more than sleeping in.

9. Adult Fellowship: While the children enjoy their class, you can fellowship with other adults.

10. You'll open doors to spiritual conversations with your kids: What did you talk about today? What do you think about that? Shall we look for other scriptures about your lesson?

" The greatest legacy one can pass on to one's children and grandchildren is not money or other material things accumulated in one's life, but rather a legacy of character and faith."
