JANUARY REMEMBER VERSES

ELEMENTARY:
You can ask anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the father. // John 14:13

PRESCHOOL:
You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it. // Matthew 21:22

HAS YOUR CHILD SAID ‘YES’ TO JESUS?

We believe that parents are the primary disciplemakers of their children, but we want to provide you with as many resources as possible to help make that process easy for you! We’ve put together a PDF that has simple, but powerful truths about our great God. We hope this will be a useful tool in helping your child understand the love and promises from God. 

 IMPORTANT UPDATES

– NEW SERIES: P.R.A.Y. BIG 6 –
It’s a new year and a new series. We ended 2019 dreaming big, finding the wonder of the Savior, and in 2020, we want to teach kids about the power of prayer. P.R.A.Y. Big 6 is a series that will teach kids 6 ways to pray like a hero. 

What does P.R.A.Y. stand for? We’re glad you asked! P is for “Praise God”; R is for “Repent and ask for forgiveness”; A is for “Ask God to help me and others”; and Y is for “Yield, which means listen and obey.”

The 6 ways kiddos can pray like a hero are to:

  1. Praise God.
  2. Repent and ask for forgiveness.
  3. Ask God to help me.
  4. Ask God to help others.
  5. Listen.
  6. Obey. 

– WATER BAPTISM: JANUARY 26 –
Baptism is an outward expression of an inward decision to follow Jesus. It is the next step after salvation and we would love to help you take that next step. If your or child has made a decision to follow Jesus, sign up to be a part of our Water Baptism happening on January 26. For more information or to sign up visit baptism.oaks.church.

Want to sign up, but January 26 doesn’t work for you? No problem. We will be doing water baptisms at the end of each month. When you sign up simply make a note of what month would work best for you.
