March Unit: Jesus Calls Helpers/Jesus Creates a Family
When Jesus began his ministry, he called people to follow him and to help him do God’s work. Some of these people were fishermen. He told them that he would teach them to fish for people. He also called a tax collector and many others. All of the dropped everything to follow him.
Jesus choice of followers surprised some people. Some leaders wanted him to choose people they could approve. But Jesus told his followers that anyone can follow him and do his work.
Throughout the five weeks of March we’ll explore what this means by reading from the bible, memorizing a verse, and engaging in hands on activities in art, cooking, spiritual practices, games and drama . Join us all month!
Teachers Needed:
We still need teachers for all  grades in April. Please consider volunteering to lead a group in their activities this month. E-mail Jodie to find out more:
Tithing in church: All children received a reusable tithing bag in Sunday School this year. Our hope is that kids get used to bringing in a gift for the church each time they come to Sunday  school (around $1). We talk about the importance of giving back to the church and that in a church we don’t have dues or a cost to attend, we give from our hearts. Please help your kids get in the habit of bringing their tithing gift to church each week.

Wednesdays at WCC!!
6:30-8:00pm FaithTrek: March Theme….Individuality
This month we’re explore the word individuality: discovering who you’re meant to be. Each week in March we’ll dive into the bible in creative ways to discover the unique qualities that we all have. We are all made in god’s image and all have unique qualities to make us one of a kind. Join us as we discover our individuality this month in March.

Upcoming BIBLE Stories this month:

March 20 1 Timothy 4:12

March 27 1 Samuel 16:7

Open gym-Each Wednesday the gym is open for free play from 5:30-6:30 before class starts. Responsible high school students are in the room to monitor kids as they play. All kids are called into their classes by leaders at 6:30 sharp.

Each week Miss Autumn joins us during class to teach songs that tie in with our monthly theme! All kids also have small group leaders who meet with them each week to build relationships and to teach the lessons through games and activities. Research shows that all kids need caring adults other than their parents in their lives to walk with them on the journey. Our committed leaders understand this mission and have signed on for the year to walk in faith with your kids! Take the time to thank your child’s leaders each week.
