What we’re Teaching this month…

Wednesday Kids– A 4-week series from the New Testament on Easter. Did you know that the largest Easter egg in the world lives in Vegreville, Canada? Did you know that the most popular Easter candy in the world is Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Eggs? There’s a ton of fun trivia around the theme of Easter but the best questions to ask kids are about Jesus. Did you know we can love Jesus more than anything? Did you know Jesus is king over everything? Did you know Jesus is alive? Did you know we can trust Jesus? Whatever their answer, invite kids to go beyond the facts and win the grand prize of knowing Jesus for themselves!

Sunday Youth– The first Sunday of each month, our Youth group meets with Hardin County Collective. This past month we met here at St. Johns for a movie night, and showed the movie Breakthrough. We had 44 here in attendance.

The Youth are continuing through the study called Freedom Ride. This is a 12-week study. The Youth

have done lessons over, how to talk to God, hearing God’s voice, three reasons we don’t hear God and following God’s lead. We have 8 more weeks in this study.

Tip of the Month

We’re already here in April looking towards the last few months of this school year. It’s been an amazing year already, but we still have so much more we want to accomplish! Let’s evaluate some of the most important things we can all be doing to maximize our time with kids over these next couple of months.

Volunteers NEEDED
