February Unit: The Good Samaritan
God wants us to show love to our neighbors. The story Jesus told about the good samaritan reminds us that Anyone can be our neighbor. Jesus reminds us with this powerful story to show kindness and mercy to EVERYONE.
Throughout the four weeks of February 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, drama and science. Join us all month!
Bible verse of the month: Love Your Neighbor as Yourself. Luke 10:27

Wednesdays at WCC!!
6:30-8pm FaithTrek
This month we’re explore the word “service”. What does it mean to serve others in the world? Jesus demonstrated what serving really means by washing His disciples feet. We reflect His character to the people around us when we lend a hand and serve. Last week we made valentines for those we love and played cool games exploring different ways to server others. See pics above from the fun!

Upcoming BIBLE Stories this month:

Feb. 20 Feeding 5,000 John 6:1-13

Feb. 27 Give in Secret Matthew 6:1-4

The gym is open for free play before classes begin: 5:30-6:30pm. Make an evening out of it by joining us for supper beginning at 5:15 (only $5 each!!) visit with families while kiddos play in the gym before class begins!

All kids 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 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!

Healthy Snacks Needed

Each week in our Wednesday evening class we enjoy a healthy snack in our small group time. If you are willing to donate pretzels, clementines, apples, crackers and cheese, etc…please let me know via e-mail:

**Thank you Shannon Ryan for providing some snacks in February!
