WCKIDS WEEKLY

WC KIDS WEEKLY | 2024 – Week 14

April 7, 2024

We are starting a new unit on the persecution of the New Testament church. During this unit, we will be remembering how Jesus suffered and died for our sins. The question for this unit is, “Why did Jesus become human? Jesus became human to obey His Father’s plan and rescue sinners.”  Our memory verse for this unit is Isaiah 53:5 (NIV), “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.” Try memorizing the verse as a family. (Preschoolers will memorize the bolded portion.)

This week, we will be in Acts 5 as we learn about the apostles were arrested when they would not stop preaching about Jesus. We will see how “amidst many uncertainties and challenging circumstances, the apostles remained steadfastly assured of the power of the gospel to save anyone who believes. On this truth they placed their hope as they rejoiced in their suffering. Jesus calls His followers to be faithful and tell others about Him, even in times of trouble. Just as Jesus experienced rejection and suffering, so will His followers. We can have joy in suffering, knowing God uses our suffering, like Christ’s, for His glory.”

WC KIDS WEEKLY | 2024 – Week 12

March 24, 2024

We are concluding our unit learning about our call to tell others about Jesus. During this unit, we are looking at how Peter told others about Jesus. The question for this unit is, “Why does God command Christians to tell others about Jesus? We tell others about Jesus so they will hear and believe in Him.”  Our memory verse for this unit is Romans 10:14 (NIV), “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?” Try memorizing the verse as a family. (Preschoolers will memorize the bolded portion.)

This week, we will be in Acts 4 and 5 as we learn about the generosity of the early church and how Ananias and Sapphira tried to appear generous. We will see how Peter confronted their sin. Ananias and Sapphira wanted to look generous, but they were greedy and chose to lie. The Holy Spirit changes our hearts to want to share with those in need. Jesus generously gave all He had so we can share in His riches and have forgiveness and eternal life. Through obedience to the Holy Spirit, we will remember the extravagance and sacrificial love of Christ and our hearts will be transformed to live on mission for Jesus.

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.
