At Maranatha our goal is to make this your child’s favorite hour of the week!
With high energy music, fun games, and interactive teaching we seek
to communicate the love of God and the story of Jesus to your children
in a way that is relevant and keeps their attention.
INFANTS – 6TH GRADE

While you are in service on Sundays at 10am, your kids will be attending a service that is designed specifically for them. They will check in to their classes in the foyer near the coffee shop & then head to their classes in the Grow Zone (infant to preschool) or to the Kids Zone (K-6th grade) for a great service planned just for them!

january 24th – 30th
Called By God – Eternity Focus
This week we will complete our series Called By God. We will discover what God Word says about being Called by God and how we can be focused on eternity. Eternity is a long time. Eternity means forever, there is no end. That is hard for us to think about sometimes. Forever is a really long time. But we all will live for eternity, but I want my eternity in Heaven.
We need to keep on eyes on what God has in store for us. Some of the stuff He has planned for you is not on this earth but in Heaven. In John 14:3, Jesus said, 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
Big Idea: I will keep my eyes on eternity.
Read Acts 16:16-40 this week.
This week’s Memory Verse is Romans 10:13-15 have your child look it up in their Bible and read the verse together. Do this daily and answer the questions provided for each day.
(* Your child has been practicing a whole set of scriptures this month. This is the week they will put it all together!)
Big Action Challenge: I will actively seek the leading of the Holy Spirit to see the thing that God sees.
Each week you and your child have a chance to be entered into a drawing at the end of the month. Have your child tell a leader their memory verse on Sunday, and parents, text me the codeword in this devo. To find the codeword, look for the underline letters in the questions provided and write them in the space provided.
Directions: Read the Bible Reading sometime during the week and each day have your child look up the memory verse in their Bible, read the verse together. Then answer the questions provided for each day as a family.
Monday: Why were Paul and Silas sent to prison? (Because they set a girl free from an evil spirit and her owners were angry because they lost money.)
Tuesday: Read Acts 16:30-31. The guard asked, “What must I do to be saved?” How did Paul answer that? (v.31) How would you respond if someone asked you how to go to Heaven and be saved?
Wednesday: Discuss as a family some ways you can keep your eyes on eternity (forever).
Thursday: When the walls of the prison came down, Paul and Silas stayed in prison instead of running away. Why do you think they stayed? (They knew if they had left the prison guard would have ended his own life, but when they stayed the guard gave his heart to Jesus – They were thinking of eternity.)
Friday: Write out the set of scriptures you have been working on this past month. (Romans 10:13-15) Underline a word or a set of words that speaks the loudest to you. Talk about how God is calling you to do something as a family.
Saturday: This day is reserved if you have missed a day. If every day was completed, use this time to review this past week’s lesson as a family.
