Fall Bible Study- September 12

Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Generosity, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control     On Wednesday, September 12 we will begin a new Bible Study on the Fruit of the Spirit.  Each week we will look at the individual traits that Paul lists in Galatians that make up a life lived in the Spirit.  The study group will meet in the Gathering Room at 6:30 p.m.

Kingdom Kids!

But Jesus called the children to him and said, "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these." 

We would love to have your children, K-5, join us this year at May Memorial's KINGDOM KIDS!!  We meet after school each Wednesday from 4-5:45 PM.  (We will arrange for school buses to drop off at the church or can get transportation for your child if in a different Powhatan Co school district)  

During our first unit, we will explore the Bible through art and science. It will be messy, hands on and exciting as we make soda geysers, lava lamps and slime all while learning that God is all we need!   

  We will learn about giving, serving, welcoming and praying through our unit on ROBOTS!!

  Our next unit is CAMPFIRE STORIES where we will learn how to trust and obey and how honesty and faith will guide us closer to God as he provides for us, prepares us and stands with us.

    It will be a year of fun, food, games, fellowship, but most importantly...a year of growth in learning about our maker and savior.  Please let me know if your child can be a part of this exciting new adventure of KINGDOM KIDS at May Memorial.

Soul Food Sundays Are Back!!!

I can't believe how quickly the summer passed, and how much I missed regularly meeting with your amazing youth!!  The wait is finally over and we are meeting

Sunday night, September 16th, 6-7:30 pm, at Bob and Nancy Wood's house. 

We will introduce our Bible Study, have a wonderful meal provided by the Seamans, roast marshmallows over the fire, play some silly games and have a time of worship as well.  Please tell your friends that all are welcome!  

The first quarter this year we will be studying 1 Timothy 4:12..."Don't let anyone think less of you because you are young.  Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity."

The start of a new school year can be a very exciting but also a very scary time.  Some youth may feel as if they don't quite measure up.  There will always be someone who is taller, faster, smarter, prettier...Sometimes they can feel like an outsider looking in and can wonder how and why God would ever want to use them.  God has an amazing way of using us all...even those that feel discarded...in a big way!  We will dive into 1Timothy and see examples of outcasts and outsiders and see how God used them and how he has an amazing plan for using us!!

After the 16th, we will be back in the youth house regularly.  Thank you all who signed up to feed us!!
