Gotta Move! Day 4

Keepin' In Step with the Spirit: Self Control

Day 4 Bible Study

Today we learned the bible verse from John 14:15-16 "If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father and He will give you another Helper to be with you forever."


We learned about how how we can trust in God throughout the week. We learned that it's not always easy to do the right thing. We will sin, but can always ask for forgiveness, just like the prodigal son. God will be with us through it all. God has given us Jesus and the Holy Spirit to help us and guide us closer to living with Him forever in Heaven!


Thank you to our Bible Study Leaders: Terry Sommers, Katie & Aaron

Day 4 Snack

We finished up learning about the last of the nine Fruits of the Spirit today. The kids are getting pretty good at reciting and singing about them all: "love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control" Today we decided to create a Holy Spirit "flame" out of some fruits.


Kids also practiced their "thank you" to God song. Don't forget that kids are invited to sing at 8:30 and 10:30 Mass to sing in front of the congregation this weekend!


Thank you to our Snack leaders: Jenni King, Matthew & Angelica

Thank you to Tom McClusky who led us in prayer each day for snack! What an awesome way to thank God!

Day 4 3D: Double Dutch & Dance

Kids definitely learned some perseverance during this station this week! Double Dutch isn't easy is it?!


Thank you to our 3D Leaders: Becky Benish, Jared, Nathan & Jack

Day 4 Craft

Today will be coming home with an "Our Father" prayer wheel. Use the wheel at home during your prayer time. Spending time reflecting on just one part of this awesome prayer that Jesus Himself taught us, is a great way to pray.


We'll also be coming home with a special creation for our own Dads.


Thank you to Mary Smyczek, Amy Richardson, Becca and Joyline

Interested in joining us for Child and Family Ministry in the Fall?

We meet on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month (September through May) to learn about God and grow in relationship with Jesus. We start with a light breakfast at 8:30 and then break into age groups from 9:00-10:15. Adults are invited to stay and join a small group of other adults learning about their faith. Kids go to groups to have some fun, get to know each other and most importantly to get to know God through their Catholic faith. Interested in learning more?
