Hello Parents,

I wanted to reach out as a follow up to Pastor Jeff’s email from yesterday. All regular MKids programming is cancelled at this time until March 31st. However, we can still worship together as a church family online. Clubhouse children will also be able to continue learning what it looks like to Follow the Leader and Zone children will continue their journey exploring Forgiveness in God’s Word. To ensure we stay on track for our March lessons you will receive two emails from us this week. This email with “What we learned on Sunday” and then another email on Friday for what we’ll be learning on Sunday, March 22nd. 

Please know that we are continuing as always to pray for you and your children. Don’t hesitate to reach out if there are specific prayer needs for your family . And know that we will be gathering right alongside each of your families as we sing together, pray together and hear God’s word together via live stream this coming Sunday morning. I am so thankful for this gift of technology that can keep us all connected in worship during this time.

Many Blessings,
Vicki 
6 Homeschooling Tips for Amateurs

We’re  living in wild times , friends! For most of us, that means we’re having to postpone regularly-scheduled life until further notice. It also means that many parents will be responsible for overseeing their kids’ online learning for the foreseeable future.

If you’ve ever tried to help your kid with their homework, you may be legitimately terrified by the idea of days on end of at-home schooling. But here’s the deal—you can do it. You really can! And maybe, just maybe, you can enjoy some of it, too.

Here are a few quick tips on how to make the most of your at-home learning experience. (Special thanks to homeschool mama Maggie Adams for sharing these incredibly practical and helpful tips with us.)

What We Learned On Sunday
Week 3: MATTHEW 9:9-12
Jesus tells Matthew the tax collector to follow Him, and he does.
Basic Truth:
Jesus Wants To Be My Friend Forever.
Remember This:
"'Come and follow me,' Jesus said."
MATTHEW 4:19, NIRV
Say This:
Who can you follow?
I can follow Jesus.
Do This: Cuddle Time
Cuddle with your child this month and pray, "Dear God, Jesus is SO good at loving people. He says kind words, helps people, forgives people, prays for people, and is just the best friend ever. Help us to love people the way Jesus loves us. We want the world to know we follow Jesus. We love You, God. In Jesus' name, amen."
