God is with Us – 3.22.2020

Hello Friends,

Many of you are at home with small children.  You are trying to parent well, work well, stay safe and sane!  You are not alone.  We see you and we honor the important things you are doing!


Here’s a video note from Pastor Karen:  Click on the link to see this video: 

Kids and Scripture


For tonight, take delight in the faith of this preschooler who is learning to recite the 23rd Psalm.  Share it with your children and encourage them to memorize Scripture, maybe not quite as long as this Scripture.  You’ll be surprised what sticks!  I can still remember attending a neighborhood VBS when I was in elementary school.  Every day there was a new Bible verse to memorize, and today, many (many, many) years later, I can still recite those verses.  They come to my mind and my heart in times of trouble.


Here are a few you can work on with your children this week:

Philippians 4:4 — Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!

Psalm 150:6 — Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

Ephesians 4:32 — Be kind to one another.

Psalm 56:3 — What time I am afraid, I will trust in You.

Psalm 119:105 — Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.

Matthew 22:39 — You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

Psalm 46:10 — Be still, and know that I am God.


Hang in there parents!  You are doing great!!!

Grace and peace,


Pastor Karen Bruins
