February’s Memory Verse is: ”So let us do all we can to live in peace and let us work hard to build each other up, Romans 14:19, NIrV.”
February’s Virtue is Peace. Peace is proving you care more about each other than about winning an argument.
In Week One’s Bible story, Isaac dug wells in his new land (Genesis 26:16-22, 26-31). Our Bottom Line is: Prove you care about others by walking away from a fight.
In Week Two’s Bible story, Jacob stole Esau’s birthright (Genesis 27, 31-33) taking his inheritance and his place in the family. Our Bottom Line is: Prove you care about others by letting go of “what’s fair.”
In Week Three’s Bible story, Abigail intervenes (1 Samuel 25:1-35) when her husband picks a fight with David. Abigail quickly presented gifts to David to promote peace between the two men. Our Bottom Line is: Prove you care about others by being part of the solution.
In Week Four’s Bible Study, the Scripture helps us understand the principle of peace (Colossians 1:20; 3:15). Our Bottom Line is: God proved He cared for us, so we can prove we care for others.
This month, kids will learn that:
(1) God demonstrated peace by sending Jesus to pay the price for our sin, which allowed the chance for our relationship with Him to be restored.
(2) The Bible challenges us to reflect this kind of peace by working towards reconciliation with others.
(3) As we show peace in our own lives, we build our relationships on trust, which in turn makes achieving peace easier during those times when we mess up.
See you on Sunday!

If you want to understand who God is, if you want to learn more about His character, there may be no better place to start than the Christmas story.
The Creator of the entire universe was attentive to His creation. He saw and understood our ultimate consequences of sin. He saw our greatest need. And He did something about it. He humbled Himself to be born as a tiny baby in a remote town in the dwelling place of animals. He lived as one of us so that, eventually, He could die for us and rise again, giving us the chance to live eternally with God in heaven.
The Christmas story shows that one aspect of God’s character is compassion. COMPASSION is caring enough to do something about someone else’s need. God lovingly saw our greatest need and met it in the most remarkable way.
God’s example of compassion is summarized in the monthly Memory Verse: “God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son. Anyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life.” (John 3:16, NIrV) God saw the world’s greatest need and cared enough to do something. Read more

Discovery Station is our exciting Sunday School ministry for grades 1 – 5. Discovery Station is an integral component of our KidsMin ministry at Faith, which includes all of our Sunday kids ministries (Wonder Mountain, Discovery Station, and Transit) as well as our midweek kids ministry, Street Wise. We invite you to check it out this Sunday!
The Basics of Discovery Station
By the time our children reach the end of the 5th grade we want them to understand these 3 basic truths:
- I need to make the wise choice
- I can trust God no Matter what
- I should treat others the way I want to be treated
The key verse that goes with this age division is Luke 2:52, which says, “And Jesus increased in wisdom, and stature and in favor with God and man.”
