18 Sep VCK Weekly 9/16/13-9/22/13
Hi Vintage Families!
Wow, it’s crazy to think that a week ago while writing the VCK Weekly, the rain storms had not even begun yet! I am so thankful that for the most part, the Vintage Family was spared most of the devastation from this storm. Praise God!
Last week at Vintage City Kids we learned how God keeps his promises through the story of Abraham, Sarah and baby Isaac. This week, we are in Genesis 22 and learning that God asked Abraham to give him the gift of his beloved son, Isaac, but spared his life at the last second. He wanted to know that Abraham was willing to give his best gifts to God!
Many years later, another Son would climb another hill, carrying wood on his back too. Like Isaac, he would trust his Father and do what his Father asked. Who was he? God’s Son, his only Son – the Lamb of God.
Scripture: Genesis 22
Bible Story: The Present (The story of Abraham and Isaac)
Bible Point: I give my best gifts to God! (Lay it on down!)
Memory Verse: Psalm 37:4 “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
Parents, many of you may not know, but we do accept offering each week in Vintage City Kids so they have the opportunity to give back to God. I believe it is crucial to teach them how to have giving hearts even at this early age. I have seen some of our families teaching the concept of giving at home by using “The Jar Method.” You might find this link to be a helpful resource for practical ways to teach your children about giving tithe and offerings to God: http://goo.gl/sXWUX1
