The Blog Will Be Moving…

Starting next Monday, April 10th, the content normally found here will start being found at the CCC’s main blog–along with some additional posts each week that aren’t family-related.

You can find it by going to: http://www.christscovenant.org/blog

The content that has been on this blog previously will remain here indefinitely. But any new posts will be found at the new page. Please be sure to update your RSS Reader if you use one, so that you don’t miss out on the same great content.

Weekly Tools for Parents (4.3.17)

Each week, on Monday morning, we’ll be posting: a) a PDF of our weekly children’s bulletin from the preceding Sunday, b) a recap of the previous Sunday’s lesson for our children’s classes, and c) & d) the previous week’s handouts for the Lost & Found and The Bridge memorization project .

Our hope is that parents can use these to follow-up on the sermon that the family heard the day before, review with their children the Sunday School lesson also taught the previous day, and to help your child memorize the Scripture Verse and Big Idea Truth from Lost & Found and The Bridge from the previous Wednesday.

Here are this week’s tools:

A. Children’s Bulletin from April 2nd

B. Review of Children’s Classes from April 2nd

C. Memorization Project for Lost & Found from March 29th

A La Carte (3.23.17)

Great articles from around the web!

First Comes Love, Then Comes Adoption: “Not everyone is called to foster or adopt. But as those forever adopted into God’s family, it’s hard to imagine a more beautiful picture of God’s love.”

Christian Men and their Godly Moms: “It may surprise us, though, to learn how many of our Christian heroes were shaped by the attentiveness and godliness of their mothers. Even though they may have had fathers who were present, involved, and godly, still they would insist that their primary spiritual influencer had been their mother.”

Dispel the Myths About Down Syndrome: “…let us labor to make our churches places where individuals and families experiencing disability want to be.”

Stay-at-Home Disciple-Makers: “Moms, are our hearts focused on the experience of mom-busyness, or on the joys of being beloved daughters of the King — women who have the privilege to raise sons and daughters into our joy, and to make disciples inside and outside of our home?”

A La Carte (3.9.17)

This week’s articles are up! Take a look…

Why Does God Ask So Much of Moms?: “Whatever your duties, extraordinary or mundane, they require more strength than you have. And that is for your good. Why? Because when you know you don’t have enough strength, you will call on the Lord for his. He hears our prayers, and loves to give us his strength. And those are the times when we feel ourselves loving the Lord with all our strength.”

Spare the Rod, Spoil the Parent: “If we fail to discipline our children to obey us, we fail to discipline them to submit to God.”

“Beauty and the Beast” to feature an “exclusively gay moment”: Beautiful productions with compelling stories and sympathetic characters are powerful devices for shaping worldview and imagination. If those devices are turned against the true story of the world—the one featuring a Creator who made us, loves us, and provides a way to redeem us—then they are subversive to what is best for us.

How to Raise Changing Children in a Changing Culture: Tripp offers biblical principles that stand the test of time

The Blessings of Growing Up in a Christian Home: They are, perhaps, too many to list, and only eternity will fully enumerate them. But these few resonate in my heart today.
