Kids Church Families,

What a wonderful 2019 we had! I am just blown away at all God has done with us and through us this year... lets recap!

  • Kids Church gave financially this year to Special Spaces, Peosta Elementary- for music in their social emotional room, and Operation Christmas Child. We also donated a TON of winter gear to the Peosta Elementary for students in need.
  • We enjoyed a bunch of CrossRoads Night Out Events including roller-skating, outdoor movie at the ball-fields, Bingo night, board game night.
  • We enjoyed a HUGE 5 year celebration and celebrated baptisms twice this year.
  • We had fun with our families through the family resource kits: we memorized verses, completed acts of kindness, sent gratitude cards, did a scavenger hunt around town, and had a birthday party for Jesus!
I would say it was a successful year of us growing individually and collectively. I believe we reached our community for Christ- we were examples of how the Lord loves, serves and lavishes!

2019- mission complete! It is a joy and an honor to serve you and your family and I look forward to all God will do through us and in us in 2020.

Happy New year,

Tiffany Johnsrud

Kids Church Director

This month let's pray and ask God what our individual and family focus should be this year. Ask Him for a word or a theme that He wants you individually or as a family to work toward this year. Find a verse to memorize that fits this word/theme and commit it to heart. Watch for ways this year that the Lord will speak to you in order to grow you in the way He has purposed for you and your family.
