Coming up in Gateway Kids - Oct 18

Preschool
Hezekiah is the brave man in week three. Hezekiah is able to lead his people and defend his city because he knows that God is the one true God and so very powerful. (2 Chronicles 32) God even sends an angel to defend the city!

Elementary
In 1 Corinthians 12:12-21 and 25-27, Paul explained to the church at Corinth that we are all parts of one body. Everyone has a unique story and unique talents, but we can’t live out our calling alone. We need each other. Timothy grew to realize that one of the greatest things in the box of his potential were his relationships with other Christians.

Bottom Line: When we use our gifts together, we can make a greater difference.Kids will learn that when they partner with other people, God can use those gifts to impact the world is a huge way.

Week 3 Elementary GodTime Devotional
Each day’s devotion includes:
1. a verse(s) to read
2. a devotion paragraph that teaches something about God and an explanation of today’s verse(s) 
3. an activity that makes real-life application of the day’s devotion
4. a suggested prayer.

Encourage kids to choose four different days during the week to do these devotions. Even though kids in early elementary are beginning to read things on their own, you may want to do the GodTime card with your K-3rd grade child. Most 4th and 5th graders are capable of having a “quiet time” on their own, once they’ve been taught how to do it, but they still benefit from an adult following up on it.
