Journey Land Begins Tomorrow Morning

Wow! It is finally here. The first day of Journey Land, our new elementary children's curriculum in our newly remodeled elementary children's wing. I have chatted with group leaders and teachers over the weekend. They are so excited to get underway! We have many more plans for the classrooms and will be adding over time, but, I have to say, they look good. Your teachers are excited to have these rooms to assist them in teaching the children the Word of God.

Just tonight, Todd Morte, Maps and Culture Workshop teacher, said he is getting so excited about teaching tomorrow. He was ready to share with the kids some Hebrew words, new songs, a map of the Bible lands where Jesus was born, and help the children write their names using the Greek alphabet. WOW! Talk about really knowing more about place and culture that Jesus lived in during His time on earth.

Patty Peck is so excited (and hopefully that is not nervous) she put out an email to the whole church asking for prayers of blessing over these classes. Patty would know a lot about this new ministry, her WHOLE family, teenagers and all, are all teaching this rotation. What a blessing it is to have a family come together to serve our precious children.

Elesa Mason was putting finishing touches on the story room mural just this evening and then heading home to prepare the Music and Memory class.

I hope that you involve your children. Journey Land is an important, creative, and well-done edition to our ministry, and hopefully one of the best resources that you, as a parent, may have to develop a love of God's Word in your elementary child's life.
