Elevate Parents Update:  Elevate Kids are in God's Army! We reviewed the Belt of Truth and Breastplate of Righteousness, and then learned about "Readiness Shoes." Our feet are supposed to take us places so that we can tell others about how much God loves them. When we have Jesus in our hearts, we should be ready to show His love and peace and be so excited to tell everyone we can about the love and peace that Jesus wants to give. Our Bible story came from Acts 16:16-40. Paul and Silas demonstrated how they were ready to share the love of Jesus at all times, no matter the consequences. They were beaten and put in jail because they wouldn't stop sharing about Jesus. While singing praises in jail, God sent an earthquake and set them free. They didn't just run away. They stayed and shared Jesus with the jailer. Because of their joy and love shown, he believed in Jesus and was baptized. The memory verse is a piece of cake now... "Put on the full armor of God so that you can take a stand against the schemes of the devil." Ephesians 6:11 They say and sign it!!!!  Have your child recite it for you! :-)
