Kids' Praise

(for kids ages 3 through 5th grade)

We invite children to join us for a time of Outdoor Kids’ Praise (formerly called Preschool Praise) on weather permitting days. During worship, children and student volunteers will be dismissed through Door K by the baptistry for a fun, active worship for children ages 3 through 5th grade. Masks are required during transitions. If it’s your child’s first time, please accompany them until they are settled and make sure we have your cell number.
 
Also, children’s activity sheets are available each week inside of Door K for following along with the worship.

May 2: Stretch Back

When Israel groans and cries out, God listens. And in listening God "remembered" the covenant with those who first believed. This Sunday morning we learn how God keeps and honors covenant while taking note of the suffering of people in need. Aren't you glad we gather to worship a God who remembers to stretch back a hand and keep a promise? (Exodus 2:23-25)

Sending Spotlight

This month features one of our disciples who has been sent as a missionary overseas and now continues to be sent in her everyday life here in the DFW area. She also knows what it’s like to send her own family out to participate in the mission of God. Come and listen in on a conversation where we discuss what it means to give away what we love for the sake of God’s kingdom.
