Spotlight Music Camp begins Monday on the Farmers Branch campus! We have 125 kids spending the week producing the musical Acorns to Oaks, and learning what it means to truly have the gospel of Jesus planted in their hearts. Make plans to attend the Spotlight Performance! Sunday, July 22nd at 3:00pm at the Farmers Branch campus. Our key verse for Spotlight is "When you bear a lot of fruit, it brings glory to my Father. It shows that you are my disciples." John 15:8. Be in prayer for our kids this week, that they would make new and lasting friends, and that the full gospel of Jesus would be sewn into their hearts.
We Need Magazines
One of our small group activities during Spotlight will require our kids to go through old magazines. If you have extra magazines laying around the house -- and they are appropriate for elementary-aged kids to peruse -- please bring them with you to our weekend services, and leave them at the Kids Branch check-in stations. And if you have any produce crates, bushel baskets, or other items found on a farm, we could use them to help decorate the lobby and sets. We'll be sure to take good care of those items, and return them to you after Spotlight.
This Week in Kids Branch
Our Downtown Kids are learning about Day 6 of Creation; that God makes good things, and we are one of the most special things He has made! Remind your kids how God created everything, and how thankful you are for all the GOOD THINGS God gives us.
In Uptown, we are learning about loving each other as Jesus loves us. We are learning the stories of James and John asking to sit at Jesus' side, and then Jesus washing the disciples feet. Read John 13 with your kids, and talk to them about what it means to love other people, and to be a servant.
And don't forget to bring your friends to the Neighborhood Chill on the Farmers Branch campus tonight from 7pm-9pm for free snow cones!
