God is both strong and gentle

SUNDAY IS COMING - DRESS IN CAMO OR SPOTS!
We are running our regular plan this weekend but dressed in camo or spots as we are learning about leopards.
Sign in for kids happens between 9:45 and 10:15 - the earlier the better though as the kids have activities set up to start at 9:45am.
If you get there after 10:15 you’ll find us all together in our worship space, sign your kids in and come and join us.

TO READ TOGETHER
Matthew 11:25-29
Jesus says that he is gentle and free of pride. Jesus’ teaching isn’t heavy to carry, and if we follow it we will become helpers of others too. We can be strong and assertive and yet gentle as we use our power to help others like Jesus.

TO LEARN TOGETHER
Let everyone know how gentle you are. Philippians 4:5a
