Theme:  Knowledge:  Getting Your Head in the Game!

Knowledge is discovering something new so you can be better at whatever you do.  We believe that God’s Word is the best place to discover something new about our world and ultimately ourselves.  And when we put those discoveries into practice it changes us from the inside out and impacts the choices we make and the way we live.  God is the source of all truth. We need to dig into His Word and discover that truth for ourselves.

The knowledge we glean from the 66 books of the Bible tells us how to live our lives day in and day out.  But that knowledge is not an end in and of itself. We can know all there is to know about God, but if we don’t put any of our knowledge into practice, it is worthless.

The monthly memory verse is: All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness. 2 Timothy 3:16, NIV.  God’s Word is powerful and strong. When we discover it and put it into practice, we have its strength on our side every day of our lives.


This month we’ll also have some fun as we look at some unusual sports in the winter Olympics, and hold our own Kids Connect Olympic competitions.
