In addition to a new teaching series getting underway this weekend at City on a Hill, something very special is starting with our children as well. On Sunday, September 1st, City Kidz will be starting “Lost & Found”. This is doctrine geared towards kids!
Not only will all the adults be tackling the major themes presented in scripture, so will all of our children. The only difference is this, the adults will go through this series in 13 weeks whereas it will take our children 50 weeks. Each month they will be looking at a core doctrine, beginning with the Doctrine of the Trinity.
Pauls says to “watch your life and your doctrine closely…” and we feel this is a great time to teach both of these things to our children. Our doctrine should inform and bring great joy to our life as it brings better understanding of who God is. This is what we want for our children. We want them to know and to love the God of the Bible. Our hope is that our children would not only grow in their knowledge of the scripture, but that it would lead to more impassioned worship and a crop of young men and women decades from now who not only love Jesus, but are equipped to share him with others as missionaries where ever the Lord may send them.
YOU HAVE A PART TO PLAY
Once you check your child out of City Kidz on Sunday morning you will notice that you will have an email waiting for you in your inbox. Inside that email you will find a couple pages describing what happened at City Kidz, what your child learned and some content to share with your child throughout the week. The content also includes some family discussion for you to utilize at your discretion.
Why are we doing this? Because the job of the leaders inside the church is to train and equip the people to do the work of the ministry. We want to make sure we are resourcing you with some of the best material so that you can better serve your children the gospel.
BIBLES ARE THE BEST RESOURCES
One of the resources that we will be utilizing very frequently is the Action Bible! This is a great, age appropriate bible for children. We will be giving this, along with some other great resources, away to all our first time guest so that your children will have a chance to read and understand the scriptures. We are getting ready to be able to give away ESV Bibles for free on Sundays for those in need. We are excited about the opportunity to be able to give the Action Bible Away to children.
CHECK CITY KIDZ OUT
So what are you and your children doing this weekend? We would love to have you! City on a Hill is currently meeting at the 180 Fitness Center here in Statesboro GA at 10:00 AM on Sundays. We hope to see you there!
