Last week, we handed out Bibles to the kids in class who signed up for the Free Bible Offer. Yay!
I was supposed to give them their D-Books at the same time, but I left the D-Book stuff at home. Boo!
Well, I'm going to try and make sure to remember it this Sunday. Here's a video giving a brief overview about how the D-Books are used in our class.
Note: In the video, I reference a folder that they can put their in-class activities in. I don't actually have the folders yet, and am going to try and find some this weekend. So as long as they haven't all been clearanced out yet at the office supply stores, we'll have them. Unfortunately, I found out last year that, if it's not August, it can be hard to find large quantities of those kinds of folders.
I also referenced some sheets that go in the D-Book. These will be inside the D-Book when your child gets it. I will also have them available for download on this weblog next week.
By the way, I just wanted to emphasize again that the take-home pages are not the same as Sunday School homework. Nothing bad will happen if your family doesn't use them. The After Church, Hmmm, and Explore pages are there as tools to help you in teaching your kids about God. If you have other resources you like better, please feel free to use those instead. In fact, you could even have your child bring them into class and share them with everyone else!
The only thing that I'd really like you to fill out is the D-Journal page, just so we can keep track as a class about how we're doing with our Discipleship Goals.
See you Sunday!
