We are in the home stretch — the last month of Spring Academy.
We will have classes the next three Sundays.
And congratulations to the Guitar Class who won the April Attendance Challenge.
(Actually, we had a strong showing in all of Academy last month.)
We are within one month of our Early Bird deadline for VBS.
We are putting a cap on registration this year, so make sure your kiddos are signed up.
Have a wonderful week!
And here’s what we’re exploring in Academy this month.
Bible Story: Genesis 1 — 2:4 — The Creation, Genesis 2:4b-7
This first account of Creation is the one with which most children are familiar. This year we are also introducing the first part of a second account of Creation.
Memory Verse: Job 33:4 — The spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.
Themes: Two different accounts of Creation don’t mean one story is true and one is not. Each can help us understand God and God’s relationship with us and the world.
In the first story, we learn that we are created in the image of God.
In the second story, we learn that it is God’s very breath which gives us life.
God doesn’t simply make us and walk away. Each day, in every breath, God is working within us.
We are created and creative. We are of earth and of God.
VBS — July 10 – 14, 2017
