Dear Grace Family,

Many people are seeking healing for their illnesses and solutions to their problems through people who do not have the power or ability to help them, they spend their time and money thinking and perhaps believing that healing and solutions will come from this good person, but they end up disappointed and with large bills to pay.

In the passage that we will see this Sunday morning, we are going to hear the story of a desperate father who, in his eagerness to find a healing for his only son who was possessed by a demon that almost killed him, puts his trust in the disciples of Jesus. However, what a disappointment to see that the disciples had no power to free this young man from the constant torment and attacks of this bad spirit.

Seeing no good answers and without good results, the father's desperation accelerates to the maximum, and he will not accept a no for an answer; he will do what every father should do, he will place all his faith in the one who can do everything and for whom everything is possible. He would decide to wait to see and speak with Jesus their leader, but this time he will obtain the answer to his constant prayers; He will receive the miracle that frees his son from the humiliating abuse of the forces of evil. 

In Christ,
Pastor Alex Rule

Note to Parents

Welcome to Summer Bible Reading Bingo! This is a resource for preschool and elementary children that will help them read their Bible during the summer and stay connected with God. This resource is designed to help children develop a daily quiet time with God that includes reading their Bible and getting to know God through His Word. It will help them learn how to use their Bible, learn more Bible stories, learn more about God, and will also help them with their reading skills.

What does this include?
This resource includes 4 Summer Bible Reading Bingo cards. Each age group (preschool and elementary) has 2 Summer Bible Reading Bingo cards. Each card is meant to last for a month. One month kids will read Old Testament Scriptures and the other month they will read New Testament Scriptures.

Preschool Bingo Cards
In each Bingo square for preschoolers, you will find a title of a story. These titles match the ones found in the Beginner's Bible by Zonderkidz (if you don't own this Bible, you can use any preschool Bible. I have also included the Scripture it comes from in the space as well). Parents will read a Bible story to their child each day.

Elementary Bingo Cards
In each Bingo square for elementary kids (K-5th grade or 5-years - 11-years), you will find a Bible verse and a title that tells what the verses are about. Kids can open their Bibles, find the verses, and read by themselves or with a parent.

How does this work?
The idea is to help children open their Bible every day and read a little about God (or have parents read them one of the Bible stories). Each time they read a Bible story, they will put a sticker on that space (or you can mark through that space with an X). When they have bingoed (which is 5 across, 5 down, or 5 diagonally), they can receive a small prize. At the end of the month, if they have filled up the whole card, they can have a chance to win a bigger prize.

How does my child get prizes?
For each Sunday in June and July, have them bring their Bingo card to church. They can only receive one prize a week. At the end of the month, if they have filled their whole Bingo card, they will be entered into a drawing to win a big prize!

How many Bible stories can they read a day?
They can always read as much of the Bible as they want each day. However, for this game, I suggest only reading one Bible story a day (which means only marking off one Bingo square each day). This is to help children develop a daily quiet time with God and a daily habit of reading His Word.
I pray this resource will help your child find a LOVE of spending time with God and reading His Word. May God bless you and your children as you take time to be with God this summer!
