White ROCK Kids: The Cocoa House Gets Emotional

 
This week the White ROCK Kids Cocoa House got an overhaul! (We meet Wednesday nights at 7pm!) We switched from rocking out to the latest Christian songs and learning how God speaks to us in song to talking about our emotions! We will still be jamming out to some rockin’ songs from time to time and sipping hot cocoa while focusing on how God wants us to handle our emotions!
 
This week we talked about happiness and how we can be happy because of God’s great love for us!  We talked about how our world can be unhappy in a lot of different ways and how we can maintain happiness in Christ Jesus.  This happiness is available because we know that God sent His one and only Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for our sins and was resurrected from death three days later.  We learned that no matter how grim our situation may look; the end result, if we have asked Christ to forgive our sins and live in our hearts, is that we will have eternity in Heaven with God!  That can bring us joy in any situation!  
 
Our memory verse this week is: “How you made me is amazing and wonderful.  I praise you for that.  What you have done is wonderful.  I know that very well.” Psalm 139:14 (NIrV).  God made us amazing and wonderful; all that He has done for us is wonderful!  Pairing that truth with the truth that Christ died on the cross and rose from the grave for our sins creates a truth bomb that can cut through any bad day that we could possibly have!  We can’t wait to see what emotion we might talk about next Wednesday night!

Easter Egg Hunt 2018! Rain or Shine!

As I remember it, hunting eggs is probably one of the most exciting parts of Easter in the eyes of kids!  The candy, the hunt for candy, the sugar rush!  When the eggs are all empty and there is no longer candy to find, kids go home with bags full of candy to last them months.  All the while, parents are praying that some of it gets lost and forgotten somewhere in the car on the drive home.
 
This Saturday kids will not only get the change to hunt for eggs filled with sugary goodness and empty those eggs into their baskets to take home, they will also get an awesome opportunity to learn about something that Jesus left empty! Come join us Saturday at 2:00 at 21070 Schulley Road in Noblesville for hunting candy, and to hear about what Jesus left empty…and why He did it!  RAIN or SHINE!
