To download February’s Parent Cue - Follow this link or pick one up Sunday morning at the check-in table.
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!

Questions & Answers
Q: How do I register my child for Streetwise?
A: Fall 2011 registration is Sept 12 at 6:30 pm
Q: Can my child register for the whole year?
A: Yes. If your child would like to register for every Street wise experience they can do so. Payment is due upon the start of each experience, unless otherwise noted.
Q: Why does Streetwise cost money?
A: Street wise is designed to be a high quality and high value experience for kids. Kids will receive a lot for what they pay. For example, if kids sign up for Chef school they will receive a chef hat, an apron, and a custom made Street wise cookbook, not to mention the sweet food and cooking skills.
Q: Will I get more information about each Streetwise experience?
A: Yes. Approximately two months before each Street wise experience you will receive an information flyer that your children can give to their friends. Flyers will have more detailed descriptions of activities, costs, and registration information.
What’s in a Name … Streetwise?
We are on the lookout for Streetwise kids. A Street wise kid is ready to try something new, ready to develop new skills, ready to make new friends, and ready to bring Jesus to kids who don’t know Him yet.
Streetwise is made up of a variety of experiences that children Gr SK – 6 will enjoy and so will their friends. Each Streetwise experience provides children a unique opportunity to learn from people with expertise in a certain area. This year children will participate in Upward football, basketball, & ball hockey, explore the world of art design, build their own race car, learn to act, and even try cooking!
Streetwise is different from other community based programs. In addition to teaching new skills, Street wise is focused on growing kids from the inside out. When kids participate in Street wise they are provided another link to explore the same virtues they are already learning at church and at home. Each month kids learn about one virtue with their small group on Sunday morning, with their parents at home and now with their friends on Wednesday nights.
Each Streetwise experience ends with a parents’ night to keep the family and church partnering together. Streetwise is designed to help families raise up their kids and reach out to their friends and neighbors by providing a positive environment for children.
Let’s work together. Let’s make our kids Streetwise!

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

Streetwise families recently shared in the excitement of our Christmas Theme night. In the spirit of co-operation families made tasty Christmas cookies, decorated unique Christmas Trees, created snowmen from members in their own groups and were reminded that Christmas is about the story of baby Jesus in Luke 2:1-20. Take a moment to watch the video below:
