*** A note about Kids' church moving forward! We have started a new curriculum that has us focusing on a theme for two weeks at a time. Really reinforcing a concept with the same music and the same concepts. I am going to keep adding in theme-specific portions after the same music but you can expect the music to be the same two weeks in a row and the video that follows to be of a similar message as the week before. The research suggests focusing at this level offers kids the chance to learn the concept as we focus on it for two weeks.***
