In the Children’s Ministry we have started our new curriculum which is called Dig In. The kids are focusing on exploring God’s character throughout the Bible. Our lessons each week teach them what it means to reflect the heart of God in everyday life.

I would like to tell you a little about myself and Sarah. I am the Sergeant in the City of Eagle Lake. I am currently in the Master of Ministry program at Warner University. I also teach at the Criminal Justice Academy at Winter Haven Christian. I have been blessed to work with youth for many years, both at the Juvenile Boot Camp and School Resource Unit at the Polk County Sheriff’s Office. Sarah is in the 8th grade at Winter Haven Christian School and wants to work in ministry upon completion of school. She is very artistic and plans craft projects that go along with our lessons.
First, I would like to thank the parents for trusting Sarah and I with their kids each Sunday and Wednesday. We are truly blessed to be able to spend time with them and teach them about Jesus. For the month of August we are talking about courage. So far we have learned about David’s courage when he faced Goliath and Moses’ courage when he went before Pharaoh. I selected this topic because I know it can be scary starting school, going to a new school, or having classes with people we don’t really know. Life can be scary sometimes! My primary focus has been teaching them that they can trust God no matter what and do not have to fear the future. Our Bible verse for August is Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through him who gives me strength.
Starting the first Wednesday in September we will begin our Children in Action ministry. We are going to focus on learning about missions discipleship and they will hear Bible stories about unwavering faith. Our theme for this study is “Unshakable Faith”. I am very excited about this ministry!
Also, I can always use volunteers if anyone is interested. If anyone would like to volunteer I would love for them to call me. Working with the kids will truly be a blessing to them. Looking at the world through their eyes puts life in perspective. They teach me as much as I teach them! I am planning to schedule a church lock-in in the upcoming months and a service event in December.

This month at VBS we learned all about how Jesus Rescues. No matter what storms we may be going through Jesus is ALWAYS right there to rescue us.
We had an awesome time being able to serve the kids for a full week and watch them have fun while also learning about God. We served over 50 kids this year between preschool and 5th grade! Thank you so much to everyone who helped with VBS, because none of it could have been done without you!
Our Children’s Ministry also had the joy of going to CentriKid Camp during July and they learned about how we are God’s workmanship and how He’s prepared good works for us to do ahead of time. The kids were able to learn that God had a blueprint for us in our lives and He has a plan for each-and-every one of us.
