Oregon Conference Children’s Ministries will be partnering with Embrace Oregon, a faith-based non-profit, that comes alongside DHS to help foster children in the Portland metro area. This year the Sandpiper and Amphitheater children will be packing Welcome boxes with items for new foster children. Most often this is the only possession children will have when they enter foster care.
Sabbath afternoon the children will have hands-on experience going through a rotation of stations that will make them more aware of the needs of foster children.
Thank you to all those who have contributed ahead of time to make this possible. If you would like to make a monetary contribution towards the boxes you can still do so.
NICE TO HAVE
** Thank you for your donations. We already have enough: Toothbrushes & Toothpaste!
Together we will search for God's amazing plan for the universe and for us—past, present and future! The awe begins as you step into God's universe of wonder. GP4U (God's Plan for You) is the focus of each session. Kids will participate in experiments and other hands-on activities that help them understand God and His plan of salvation. These are the questions they will ask:
Why in the world am I here? Why in the world do bad things happen? What is God like? Why did Jesus have to die? So... now what do I do?
Professor Mega-noggin will travel through time to trace God's plan from creation to the present and find answers to these questions. Most importantly they will discover that God loves them and wants them to be members of His family.
Session 1: God's incredible creation
Session 2: Adam and Eve and the effects of sin
Session 3: How God bridged the separation by sending Jesus
Session 4: Why Jesus had to die and how He took our punishment so we can be forgiven
Session 5: What it means to live forever with God as a member of His family
