March Meeting: International Celebration

Friday, March 4th

International Night beginning with a Fellowship dinner at 6:30pm in the Nazarene Family Center. We would like to have foods from foreign countries for the adventurous ones... and hot dogs for the others! :)

We are excited about this event and would like the families to participate by choosing a country or people group to study. Each family will have a space to display their research and projects from the country they choose. We would encourage costumes or even a hat from that country. There will be a "parade of countries" and we ask that you make a flag of that country for the parade. This could be done with fabric, foam sheets or even posterboard and attached to a dowel rod.

We will also be having a missionary family as our guest speakers; they have served in Rwanda and Reunion Island (France) collectively for 15 years. We are pleased and honored that they will be sharing with us.

Instructing a Child's Heart, February & March

Instructing a Child's Heart is essential to shepherding a child's heart. The instruction that you provide for them not only informs their mind, it is directed to persuading their hearts of the wisdom and truthfulness of God’s ways. Impress truth on the hearts of your children, not to control or manage them, but to point them to the greatest joy they can experience, delighting in God and the goodness of his ways.
