Family Group Friday: Forgiveness Rocks! Today we talked about forgiveness in our family groups. We reflected on how Jesus forgives us, and we need to forgive others. Today’s verse, Col 3:13 says, “Bear with each other and forgive one another, if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” We talked about how forgiveness is tough, like carrying around a load of rocks, but God’s love and Holy Spirit can help us. We wrote on rocks about forgiveness, and we will be placing them around our school grounds to remind us about forgiveness.
Fremont Christian will be closed today due to weather conditions.
All School Chapel Friday: today the 4th graders hosted our chapel about patience and self-control. They reminded us that patience is waiting happily, and self-control is learning to manage ourselves. We were able to share with those sitting around us some examples of patience and self-control. Mr. M. Folkema shared more on these virtues, and then we watched a Biblical video about David and King Saul. Maestra Dena shared with us about a story about sunflowers, and how we need to stop, think, and choose well, as the 4th graders held up choice pictures. It was great to worship together and hear lots of good examples of the Fruit of the Spirit.

Elementary Chapel Day: We heard about the Evidence of God in our lives in our words and deeds. Mrs. V. Folkema shared her story about how God is with us wherever we go, even on vacation! We learned a new song about “Whatever You Do” – how you need to do all to the glory of God. Many of the students also were able to lead us in our singing today. It was great to have some little ones come join us up front also! After being out 2 days for snow days, it was great to come back and focus on having God in our lives every day!

Family Group Friday: the theme today was worship. In our groups, our middle school leaders led us with questions like: why do we worship? When do we worship? How do we worship? We shared our ideas and then had a time of worship together. We read together from Psalm 92 “It is good to give thanks to the Lord, and to sing praises to your name, Most High; To declare your goodness in the morning, and your faithfulness by night.”
