These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deuteronomy 6:6-7 (NIV)
The above passage provides the central theme of the book of Deuteronomy and sets a pattern that helps us relate the Word of God to our daily lives and our families. We are to love God, think constantly about his commandments, teach his commandments to our children, and live each day by the guidelines in his Word.
At Celebration Community Church we take serious our role in helping in the process of the formation of a child’s faith.
God emphasized the importance of parents’ teaching the Bible to their children. The church can only assist in this endeavor and cannot be used to escape from this responsibility. The Bible provides so many opportunities for object lessons and practical teaching that it would be a shame to study it only one day a week. Eternal truths are most effectively learned in the loving environment of a God-fearing home. As kids start their first full week of school let’s pray for Godly teachers to impart God’s eternal truths through their words, and actions.

Thank You to Troy Thompson of Sara Lee Bakery and Freddy's Frozen Custard for their generous contributions to the kids fest.
