The Ten Commandments: Love Others



This week, our journey through the Bible using The Gospel Project® for Kids takes us to the remaining six of the Ten Commandments. These commands show God’s people how they can love others. When someone truly loves God, they are compelled to love what He loves - including other people. 

Help your kids understand that loving people is not an option but something God commands us to do and something we should want to do out of gratitude to God.

in Grace kids....

Yesterday in Grace kids and preschool we played a game reviewing our last 5 bible stories focusing on Moses and how his life points us directly to Jesus. It was so encouraging listening to your kids tell about the stories and answer questions!!!  

Reminder that this Wednesday the 4,5,6 grade boys going to the Mav's game will be leaving the church at 5:30. (Pizza will be provided.) 

Impact will still be from 6:30-7:45 for all other kids K-6.  We are going to sing some songs, play a couple games and watch a bible story movie while eating popcorn. :)
