Living Out Our Purpose

3.11.18_KIDS-7.jpg

Our Better Life Kids have been learning so much about God's purpose for their lives the past several weeks!  Throughout the Beach House Bandit (Preschool & K) and MK5 (1st -5th) series, they have learned that God created them on purpose and for a purpose.  He created us to:

  • WORSHIP—shows God how much you love him and how thankful you are
  • BELONG--God wants you to BELONG to His family
  • GROW-- God wants you to GROW in your relationship with Him
  • SERVE—Serve God in Love!
  • SHARE– Bring others to Christ and Share the Good News.  

We have several opportunities coming up for kids to practice these purposes!  It's clear that God wants us to BELONG to His family!  If your child has accepted Jesus in salvation and is ready to be baptized (see: Talking to Kids About Baptism) sign them up at https://betterlife.church/baptism/ for our next baptism (March 25th) and be sure to e-mail us at kids@betterlife.church if you have any questions or want help talking to your child about Salvation or Baptism!

God created us to SERVE others!  If your family hasn't already, jump into a HOPE week serving project to serve our community!  Text HOPEWEEK to @797979 to see what projects have availability!  We will conclude Hope week by throwing a pajama party in KiDS on Sunday, March 18th!  Your kids can wear their pajamas and bring a pair of NEW (with tags) pajamas to donate to a child in need!  We are partnering with Jambos to collect and donate new pajamas to the local DCFS, who will distribute pajamas to kids going into foster care!  What a wonderful way for your child to see how they can serve others in love!

Lastly, EASTER is coming up!!  We can't wait for your child to come and experience the life-changing message of the gospel in a FUN and age-appropriate way!  We will be having a HOT AIR BALLOON egg drop and other fun activities throughout our four Easter services!  Please help your child SHARE the good news by doing their part in bringing others to Jesus!  We will have Easter invite cards on Sunday that you can share with friends and family.... just like the woman at the well, our job is to tell everyone "Come and see..."  We don't have to have all the answers about the Bible, but we can bring them to Jesus!  And we know that the name of Jesus will be lifted up here at Better Life Church... so what are you waiting for?  Go after those that need the hope of Jesus! 

Thank you for partnering with us in helping your child GROW in his/her faith and finding their purpose!  We count it a privilege each week that your entrust your kids to us!  We can't wait to see their smiling faces on Sunday... and don't forget the PJs!  Oh... and don't forget... if they have their Memory Verse Chart completed, bring that back to KiDS for a special prize!
