Sept 15

Hello Family and Friends,
This week  our chapel time was about  God's creation of our beautiful world. We focus mainly on days 1-3 this week, and will complete 4-7 next week. The children enjoyed making the Creation mural for the first three days. Hand painting for light and dark was a favorite for all classes. Take a look.


This Little Light of Mine I'm going to let it shine!
God said:  Let there be light!


Days 1,2,& 3

Growing in Grace Sept 2016

"Put on all the armor that God supplies. In this way you can take a stand against the devil's strategies. So then, take your stand! Fasten truth around your waist like a belt. Put on God's approval as your breastplate. Put on your on your shoes so you are ready to spread the Good News that gives peace.....take the Christian faith as your shield....also take salvation as your helmet and the word of God as the sword of the Spirit."   Ephesians 6:10-17 

Good Day Parents and families,

As a new year of Growing in Grace begins we will be putting on the Armor of the Lord  based on the scripture text above. This study will begin the last week in September and continue through the fall season.

This first week of September we have started with the parable of the Good Shepherd, and in upcoming weeks we will be learning about the Bible story of Creation. I am excited and eager to be kicking off another year of Growing in Grace. 
Please continue to check out the "chapel blog" for pictures and updates each week.  

Peace & Blessings, 

Ms. Bev

Growing in Grace August 2106

Hello Parents & Families,              August 2016

No chapel for the month of August as we prepare for the transition of classes, and I will be focusing on the planning for the upcoming year of Growing in Grace. I will return in September with new weekly updates of our chapel time with each class. 

Our theme for the upcoming year will be the Armor of the Lord, based on the Bible passage from Ephesians 6:10-17. We will put on the belt of Truth, the helmet of Salvation, the Good News shoes, the shield of Faith, and the Armor of Righteousness. 
We will build our strength in Jesus.

Its been a great summer! 

See ya in September,

David and Goliath

                                                                                                July 25,  2016


This is our final Bible story for the month of July. Our toddlers listened well to our story of David and Goliath.

Only a boy name David                              
Only a little sling                                    
Only a rippling brook 
Only a boy name David
And five little stones he took
One little stone went into the sling
And the sling went round and round
And one little stone went up in the air
And the Giant came tumbling down.

Our God is so big so strong and so mighty there's nothing our God cannot do!

Growing in Grace July 2016

                                                                                                July 18-21, 2016

Good Afternoon Parents & Families.

This week in Growing in Grace the children will learn what it means to have a heart for Jesus. In the Nursery  we read from the Baby Bible about how much Jesus loves us and wants us as his children to have a heart of love for others.
I also read portions of the book  "A Heart for Jesus"  written by 
Juanita Bynum with wonderful illustrations.  We finished off with music and singing. All of my furry puppet friends joined in also. Leo, Luca, and little Buddy Bear. 
All the students enjoy Leo and his friends when they visit us during chapel time.    Below are some photo's of this weeks Growing in Grace sessions: Nursery, Toddlers, & the Two's classes. The 3/4 old group will resume their schedule in September. 

"Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Matthew 5:8 

"Change my heart O God make it ever true."
"Change my heart O God may I be like you."

The B-I-B-L-E

Good Day Parents and Families,             July 11-14, 2016

I'm relatively new to the world of blogging; but I too will now be making a small attempt to let our parents know a bit more of what we are doing with our students during their "Growing in Grace" chapel time." My hope is to keep things simple and informative.  Thank you for your support and understanding. 

Blessings to you all,
Ms. Bev

This week in Growing in Grace our students will be learning that the Bible is God's Word to us. We will be looking at a variety of different styles of Bible textbooks, along with Bible storybooks.

Here are the kids from the Nursery with our song paddles. 
Tuesday the toddlers spent time exploring all my Bible books. They loved their own Bible necklaces.                                                                                         
The Two's class also enjoyed looking through my Bible storybooks and they had  fun working there B-I-B-L E sewing cards.

Jesus Loves the Little Children.     

                       The Nursery children love to sing along.

 I have hidden your word in my heart. Psalm 119:11


The B-I-B-L-E yes that's the book for us!
