No verse this week--just the catechism!

A: Justification is the declaration that I am righteous before God through faith because He has placed my sin on Christ, and Christ’s righteousness on me.

 We had EIGHT people say their verse this Sunday!  That's a tie for the most ever to say the verse on a Sunday.  That's going to really help with the points since saying the verse on Sunday is worth $2,000!!!  Make sure you learn your verses for this Wednesday--every verse makes a difference!

Verse for this week

In the excitement of posting the video of the kids doing the cheer, I forgot to post the verse for this week, April 21.  Here it is: 

Q: How does a person receive salvation? A: A person receives salvation by trusting in the gospel.
[Romans 10:9] Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Fun pictures from Kids' Club

Miss Rachel reviewing the names and events of the missionary story.  And no, that's not Mr. Phil in the picture with the parrot...those are 3 of the missionary men with a gift from the Auca Indians!
The kids love playing Simon Says with Mr. Rich...he comes up with the craziest things to do!
Miss Jenna leads the serious song time right before Mr. Phil's lesson. 
Both Hannah's got a gift...the not so pretty package contained yummy licorice, but the beautifully wrapped present contained a smelly, rotten banana!

It's Crazy Hat Night!!!

Hang on to your hats boys and girls...nights like this don't come very often (for which the parents and workers are very thankful!)  It's CRAZEEEEY Hat Night this next Wednesday, April 21.  Don't forget the following things need to be true about your hat:
• You need to be able to take it off for the serious times like the missionary story and Mr. Phil's lesson
• You need to make something about it--You can use a base (like a baseball cap) that you add things to or you can make the base yourself.
•We will be having a contest to see just who's hat is really the craziest!

How could this happen!

Who would have ever thought the Lord's plan for these men was to have them be killed by the Auca Indidans?!?  We learned this week that they did not make the call in on the radio at the right time.  Missionaries from all over Ecuador came to help search for them, and the results were tragic.  But why would this happen after there had been such friendly contact with "George" and the two Auca women before?  You do not want to miss what happens from here on out in this story as Miss Rachel helps us see how the Lord uses these missionary men even after their deaths!

Some fun pictures from this week

Our missionary story...

is getting more and more exciting!  The 5 missionary men have landed on the sand bar, "Palm Beach" and an Auca man and 2 Auca women came out of the jungle and spent the day with the missionaries.  Jim Elliot and co-laborers are sleeping in a tree house waiting for the Lord to provide more and more contact with the Auca Indians.  They spent several months dropping gifts down in a pail from Nate Saint's airplane and receiving gifts back from the natives...what will happen now that they are so close to the Auca' sure you don't miss next Wednesday when Miss Rachel continues the amazing saga of Jim Elliot's life!
Miss Rachel demonstrates how Nate Saint was able to get the pail of gifts from "Operation Auca" to be still enough for the natives to get the gifts out of it while he was flying his airplane.

The verse for Sunday, April 11 and Wednesday April 14

(Question) Did Jesus come as a mighty king to save the world?
(Answer) No, Jesus came in humility to save the world through His death.
(Philippians 2:8) “And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.”
