This month in TCCKids we are focusing on the birth of Jesus. The Preschool zones are celebrating His birth with a Birthday Bash every week. This Birthday Bash includes helping preschool kids think of what Jesus would want for His birthday. This past Sunday, Mandy and her volunteers talked to the kids about feeding God’s people, including a trip to our TCC food pantry for them to see how they can help those around them. Elementary kids are celebrating the birth of Jesus with a focus on compassion. In Kids Church this past Sunday, elementary kids focused on John 3:16 and how God saw our greatest need and did something extraordinary about it!
We are just one week in and I am excited for this month and the journey we get to go on with kids leading up to Christmas. It’s the goal of TCCKids to help kids focus on the giving part of the season through the celebration of Jesus and the concept of compassion. As always we invite parents to join us in this collaborative goal. Here are two tools we are offering to help in that effort:
1- Christmas Caroling. TCC is hosting an evening of Christmas Caroling this Sunday (December 9). Meet us at the church at 5:30 pm. Josh will have caroling books available, and we will create teams to go out in the community and spread Christmas cheer. This is an excellent opportunity to put into action what our kids are learning about throughout the month. We encourage elementary kids to be involved and travel with their parents into the community. Given the colder weather, nursery and preschool programming will be available at the church. No sign up necessary just come this Sunday 5:30-7:30 pm.
2- Stay connected. Just as Christmas caroling provides an opportunity for parents to continue our Bible lessons at home, we invite parents to be part of the lesson topics every day. TCCKids invites parents to engage using the Parent Cue App. The Parent Cue App is designed to help every parent do something each week to help move their child toward a deeper faith and a better future.
