In April --

God has no beginning and no end. God is the creator and sustainer of the universe. He deserves all of our worship and praise for what He has done and continues to do in our life.

On the other hand, we are humans, created by God. And while we are the crowns of God’s creation, we are nothing without our Creator God.  Yet so often, we act like we are God. We allow our pride
to take over and forget that any of our strengths or accomplishments would not exist without God. The only proper response in light of God’s greatness is to respond with humility in our interactions with the people around us. 

As we celebrate Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection this Easter season, we’ll be taking a closer look at the way humility shows up throughout the end of Jesus’ time on earth. 

 
Memory Verse for April:

Philippians 2:3  "Don’t do anything only to get ahead. Don’t do it because you are proud. Instead, be humble. Value others more than yourselves." (NIrV)

In May --

Throughout Scripture, we can discover that God has been faithful to His people. He rescued them from slavery in Egypt. He sent Jesus to rescue us from our sin. He remained faithful to the early church as they spread the message of Jesus throughout the world. When we see how God gave His people what they needed to continue following Him, we can respond with determination believing that God will give us what we need to finish what we start.

Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to help us have determination. 


Memory Verse for May:  

Galatians 6:9  “Let us not become tired of doing good. At the right time we will gather a crop if
we don’t give up” (NIrV).

In April-- 

Have you ever thought about how many times a day you switch things on or off? The lights. Your alarm. Your hair dryer. Your phone. The TV. But have you ever thought about your faith as having an on or off switch, too? Sometimes it’s really hard to keep our faith switched “on” all the time. No matter how big our faith in God is, sometimes we all face things that make it difficult to have faith in God. Sometimes those things can become so big that they actually “turn off” our faith. Kind of like a switch. Guilt. Doubt. Judgment. Even our feelings. All of these things have the ability, in some way, to switch off our faith. But what if they didn’t have to? What if these things had the ability to switch “on” our faith instead? In this series, we’ll take a look at the life of Peter—a man who is known today as having great faith in God—because when Peter wrestled with guilt, doubt, judgment, and even his own feelings, he found a way to let each of those things switch his faith “on” instead of switching it “off.”

In May --

Fast. It’s how our culture likes to do things. Because we lead such busy lives, we have become masters at finding the quickest way to accomplish nearly everything. This need for speed has led us to some of the best inventions ever—things like the drive- thru, the microwave, and movies on-demand. Unfortunately, it’s that same desire for instant results that gave us some not- so-awesome inventions. Have you ever tried instant coffee or instant mashed potatoes? Not nearly as good as the real thing. The truth is, while fast is awesome, there are some things in life that just take time. Maybe that’s why the Bible keeps mentioning this idea of sowing and reaping, or planting and waiting for something to grow. Because while our temptation will always be to look for a shortcut or to focus our attention somewhere that will give us faster results, we run the risk of missing out on some of the best things in life when we don’t work on them over time.
