EXPERIENCING THE BIBLE

"IN  LIVING COLOR"

The stage is set, the characters are in place... the dreams of Storytellers, Singing and Art in Children's Ministry are soon to come true. Through stories, songs, and hymns, and art, presented in Chapel format, grounded in the eternal prayers, creeds and commandments of our faith, the children of CTR will experience the truths of Scripture coming to life in our very midst this year on Sunday mornings.

Stories from The Old, The New, and "THE NOW" Testaments, of people living life by faith in God's truth will encourage us to reflect on our own character now while imparting God's character to our hearts, and inspiring us to take part in making God's dream for our lives come true!          

THE STORY OF JOSEPH, ACT I
Told by Joseph himself.

Children in PreK - 5th grade are encouraged to come, grab a front row seat as the curtain is raised on the life of a great character of faith, a dreamer of dreams.  We will hear the complete story of Joseph's life on the 1st Sunday of each month throughout the Fall.   Mark your calendars and plan to be here for one of the greatest stories of faith, from beginning to end.  

Stories fall gently on our hearts, inviting us to relax as we settle into God's grace and open our hearts to God's truth. Our year of Storytellers, Singing and Art begins before you know it. God has carefully laid the foundation for a great plan for the children of Christ the Redeemer.  You will not want to miss a single Sunday!

COME EXPERIENCE GOD'S DREAM

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."  - Jeremiah 29:11

Our year of Storytellers, Singing and Art  has begun.  Our memory verse for this season is Romans 8:28.  (To help the children learn it, they are singing it as well.)
 
"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose." (ESV)
 
In order to help the children grasp the concept of "all things working together for our good" we are hearing Joseph's story as told in the book of Genesis. Our story began in Genesis, Chapter 37, where we learned that Joseph was favored by his father and given the "coat of many colors" and was sold by, his jealous brothers, as a slave to traders on camels back on their way to Egypt. There he is again sold and given into the hands of Potiphar, the commander of the guard, an official of the King of Egypt. 
 
On the first Sunday for the next three months we will hear the entire story of the life of Joseph from Genesis, Chapter 39 - 50.  It is our hope that through the example of Joseph's life, we will enter into a deeper understanding of the memory verse, and we, like Joseph, will remain faithful to God, fulfill our calling from God, and be instruments in His hands for the good of others when life's circumstances become difficult.
 
INVITATION FOR PARENTS:
Sunday, September 10th, the Joseph story was told using pictures and words without reading the scripture verbatim.  As you feel led,  read Genesis 37 to your child(ren) or having them read it to you, inviting further discussion.
