Lenten Midweek Series — Truly, This Is the Son of God

Starts on Wednesday, March 6, 2019 at 7:00 pm

Ash Wednesday: Nicodemus: Doubted, then Believed. John 3 1-21, 19: 39

When we look at the Passion of our Lord, we find numerous characters that are hostile to the Word in the flesh and others that are friendly.  All of these reactions to Jesus of Nazareth leave historical footprints that this man, Jesus not just a man or even a superman, but none other than the Son of God.  As we hear and see the witness of their lives, they lead us back to the cross and the person crucified there.  The cross and the empty tomb spoke to them and continues to speak to us.  Here is the evidence of the lives touched by the Word.  We hear and see the evidence.  May the Holy spirit who works  faith daily through the Word strengthen us in the sure knowledge of faith to believe and confess, with the centurion at the at the cross, that Jesus of Nazareth truly is the Son of God.

Open 5:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Kids Come First is now licensed to accept two year olds.  We have added several new kids to our program.  We have 27 children enrolled in the before and after school program and 18 children from two to five years old.  They do not all come every day but have a different number of children each day.

We have had several days where there is a late start of school.  We find activities that occupy their time and give them a snack before they go to school.

We have set up two different rooms, one is for the smaller children that we call the penguin room and a room for the before and after school kids which we call the crocodile room.  The younger children were the ones who decided on the name for each room.  You are welcome to come on down and check out what we are doing and the fun that we are having.

We do have a need for some new toys in Kids Come First.  If you have or know of someone who would like to donate some thing that would be greatly appreciated.  Some of the things that are needed is: big trucks, farm equipment and farm animals, board games, color books, baby dolls and clothes, Barbie doll clothes, or any other toys for our program.

Three Year Olds – Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 9:00 – 11:30

Four Year Olds – Monday, Wednesday and Friday 12:00 – 3:30

The three year old preschoolers have been working on shapes, their cutting skills and recognizing their names.   Some of our preschoolers have learned how to write their name.  It is so exciting to see when a young child has learned something new or a new skill.

We are so excited that we have three new friends that has joined our class: Landon, Aurora and Theo.

The four year old class has been working on letters, numbers and shapes.  We are also continuing to work on social skills.

There is also a new student in the four year old preschool, we welcome Emmalin to our class. We are all very anxious for warmer weather for us to be able to go outside to play.
