WCKIDS WEEKLY

WC KIDS WEEKLY | 2024 – Week 24

June 16, 2024

We are starting a new unit on what our mission is as Christians. During this unit, we will be talking about how our mission is to make followers of Jesus from every nation by the power of the Holy Spirit. The question for this unit is, “What is our mission as Christians? Our mission is to make disciples of all nations by the power of the Holy Spirit.”  Our memory verse for this unit is Psalm 96:3 (NIV), “Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.” Try memorizing the verse as a family. (Preschoolers will memorize the bolded portion.)

This week, we will be in Acts 15 as we learn about how church leaders met in Jerusalem to answer a tough question: Can a person be saved by faith alone or is something more needed? We will see that “The early church agreed that because of Jesus’ death and resurrection, He alone is all we need to be saved. God made a way for us to be saved through faith in Jesus. We cannot earn this salvation. Rather, our good works are evidence of our faith as the Holy Spirit empowers us to obey Christ’s commands.”

WC KIDS WEEKLY | 2024 – Week 23

June 9, 2024

We are concluding a short unit on who can be a Christian. During this unit, we will be talking about how anyone who trusts in Jesus can be forgiven of their sins and be right with God. The question for this unit is, “Who can be saved? Anyone who trusts in Jesus can be forgiven of their sins and be right with God.”  Our memory verse for this unit is John 3:17 (NIV), “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” Try memorizing the verse as a family. (Preschoolers will memorize the bolded portion.)

This week, we will be in Acts 13-15 as we learn about Paul becoming a missionary and going on his first missionary journey. We will see that “God had a plan for Paul to share the gospel with Gentiles, no matter what troubles he faced. Many believed in Jesus. The church grew and the gospel spread so that people all over the world could be saved from their sins by trusting in Jesus.” The same Holy Spirit that filled Paul and sustained him on his missionary journeys also lives in us who trust in Christ so we can share about Jesus to others.

This week, we will be in Acts 9 as we learn about Saul (Paul) becoming a Christian on the road to Damascus as he was going to persecute Christians. We will see that “Jesus appeared to Saul (Paul) and changed him inside and out. Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners. (1 Timothy 1:15) Jesus called Saul, who was once an enemy to Christians, to spend the rest of his life telling people about the gospel and leading them to trust in Jesus.” God gave Saul a new purpose and He is able to do that for us today.

MORE ABOUT WESTMINSTER KIDS

We believe that the more you know Jesus, the more you know what really matters! Our key verse for ministry is: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.  By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34-35)

Martha Clay

Children’s Ministry Director

I love introducing children to the Gospel Story of the Bible and helping them become lifelong disciples of Jesus. I love the humor, the hugs, and the honesty of children.  I grew up at Westminster and found it a great place to learn and develop my faith and gifts.  My hope is that children will feel that Westminster is their church where they can learn to love like Jesus and develop their gifts.

My husband Dan and I have 3 children who are all adults now.  In my free time, I enjoy reading, history, Paris tea, puzzles, and walks with my husband Dan.
