This Week's MOPPETS:

MOPPETS for November 2014! Thank you, moms, for helping with our Steering Team childcare! We are blessed by each of you!

Thanking God is the next theme for BOZ Treehouse Time! at MOPPETS.
When asked to thank God during a prayer, young children will typically take a fast glance around and end up mentioning shoes, pictures on the wall, the table and anything else in sight. So, before MOPPETS, help your child identify some of the significant blessings your family enjoys (other than shoes and the kitchen table!). These conversations will prepare your child for our session about a harvest of blessings.

  • Memory Verse: God is good to me (From 1 Chronicles 16:34 "Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.")
  • Biblical Concept: God gives me many blessings.
  • Snack: Graham Crackers (Cruisers) plus marshmallow creme and pumpkin pie filling for upper ages to make 'Up-side Down Pumpkin Pie'.

Blessed to have your children learn about God and His love with us. Thank YOU!
