April 2014

APRIL 2014

 “When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat or something else.”  1 Corinthians 15:37

It would be foolish to plant a seed and expect instantaneous results.  Although some would prefer such an easy option, we know that nurturing a seed requires commitment to the growing process and a firm belief that the seed will become the plant it is intended to be and bear the fruit it is intended to bear.

At Our Redeemer we are seed planters.  We have the responsibility of planting the seed of the Word of God daily into young hearts.  We have the privilege of watching them grow and mature in their faith.

Jesus life, death and resurrection assure us of eternal life.  We respond to this Good News with a heart full of love.  Touched by the love of Jesus, the children we teach experience the joy that comes from knowing Him.

Our “little plants” are growing daily, well fed and watered by God’s Word, taught by teachers who model the love of Jesus.

 Jog-a-thon and Silent Auction
