WCS PANCAKE BREAKFaST in support of EDUDEO. Did you know that at least 72 Million primary school-age children worldwide are not in school? Children either live too far from schools, need to work/earn money to support their families, or they can’t afford essentials such as uniforms or school supplies. Our annual pancake breakfast @ WCS helps support our neighbours around the world. This year, breakfast money is designated for Edu-Deo Ministries. The focus of Edu-Deo is on the transformative power of Christian education worldwide. Edu-Deo Ministries (formerly Worldwide Christian Schools) is a Canadian, Christian, mission organization serving children in developing countries with quality education rooted in a Biblical worldview. Education is one of the most powerful tools for reducing poverty. Edu-Deo Ministries promotes sustainable schools by partnering long-term with existing school associations and mission organizations. Their goal is to take the effective tool of education and combine it with the transforming message of the Gospel. Woodstock Christian School, on Wednesday, get comfy, get ready for pancakes, and help us support Edu-Deo! For more information see edudeo.com

Valentines

As valentines approaches let's remember what it was like for us as a child. Remember carefully picking out which card would go to each person in class. Excitedly handing them out in class to each person, being careful not to miss anyone. Then after getting home, finding a spot to lay out every card. Then basking the the feelings of affirmation that people in class appreciated you. It can be such an exciting time as a child to celebrate Valentine's Day. Unfortunately these feelings of appreciation fade over time. If we teach our students to rely on God's love, during Valentines, we will build a security of His goodness. 1 John 3:1a “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!” And that is what we are! Let's use this week show love to those we care about and remember the great love the father has for you.
 
Mrs. K. Poort
 
God's Valentine gift of love to us
Was not a bunch of flowers;
It wasn't candy, or a book
To while away the hours.
 
His gift was to become a man,
So He could freely give
His sacrificial love for us,
So you and I could live.
 
He gave us sweet salvation, and
Instruction, good and true--
To love our friends and enemies
And love our Savior, too.
 
So as we give our Valentines,
Let's thank our Lord and King;
The reason we have love to give
Is that He gave everything.

Go Outside and Marvel!

Get Outside and Marvel!
Public Health agencies across Ontario are promoting a WinterWalk day this week. They are recognizing and promoting the benefits, not only for regular physical activity and leaving the car at home, but of getting outside. What an amazing world God made for us to explore: icicles, animal tracks, snow of various textures from powder to packing, trees with a variety of branching patterns and colours, migrating birds, and so much more. I recently read of an old fashioned Christian practice, called 'marveling' which involved taking walks every Sunday afternoon and finding things to marvel at and to share with others. When we take the time to 'marvel', we are appreciating the beauty and detail in creation, developing our sense of wonder, which translates into thankfulness to God for his creative goodness.
We have seen the traffic snarls around local schools at drop-off and pick-up times. Because almost all of our students are bussed from all over the city and county, walking to school is not an option. However, we can take advantage of the opportunity for parents and kids to get outside together and stretch those legs! Walking outside improves physical and mental health, creates a healthier environment, safer streets, opportunities to make friends and have fun! It's also a great cure for winter blues and helps students concentrate better in class.

Armor of God

How often do we listen to the lies of the devil? How often does the devil try to distort the truth in our lives? How often do we feel defeated? How often do we remember whose we are? How often do we turn to the truth? How often do we put on the armor of God? 

 

In SONbeams we are learning about the armor of God. Each week we talk about and make a different piece of armor. We sing songs that talk about the armor and how we are to use it against the evil one. That they are to stand strong and don’t believe the lies of the devil. 

 

Paul tells us to put on the armor. That our war is not against flesh and blood but of the spiritual world. More than ever there is a battle for our children. There are more distractions, more gateways to temptations, and more disconnect with each other. It is so important in our world today that we learn and teach our children the truth of who they are (who we are). It is important to learn and teach of the tools/weapons God has given us to stand in truth and fight. 

 

It is exciting to impart such truth to young children. Praying that they will not forget to put on the armor and stand strong!

 

Ephesians 6:10-18

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. …
