Learning to be the one to go the distance and finish strong-that’s what January in Kids Connect is all about!  Determination, which is deciding it’s worth it to finish what you’ve started, is our monthly theme.  Through the Biblical examples of Noah, Moses and Ruth, we will discover that when you put your faith in God, He’ll give you the strength you need to keep doing what you should do—even when it’s hard and even when others give up.  Because when you have the determination to finish what you’ve started, you won’t miss out on the good things God has in store for you. Our lives are like a big Amazing Race!

Kids Connect Challenge!  The beginning of a new year is traditionally the time to make resolutions and begin new habits and disciplines.  So, the start of 2013 is a great time for this month’s Kids Connect Challenge which is to complete all four week’s of God Time Cards.  Spending time in God’s word daily is a terrific discipline that helps each of us grow in our faith and spiritual walk with God, and our God Time cards are a fantastic resource to use.  Have your child complete and turn in this month’s God time cards by the first Sunday in February to receive a prize! 

 “Let us keep on running the race marked out for us,” Hebrew 12:1b, NIrV, is this month's memory verse.
