I hope you and your family had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  Even though this was a very different Christmas for most of us, I hope you took time to think about the greatest gift God gave us.  God gave Himself to us in human form as Jesus Christ.  He came to show us how much He loves us and wants a relationship with us.   So, as you plan and get started in this New Year remember that God loves you.  I am praying that God pours out His blessings on your family during this new year.

During the next few months until Easter, which is April 4th this year, in Bible we will be learning about Jesus.  Hearing stories about the many miracles He did while He was here on earth, but also getting to know the kind of person He is.  What did Jesus do during His public ministry hear on earth that revealed Him to be God with us here on earth?

Please continue to ask your children about the Bible papers and crafts they bring home.  It will help them to remember.  They are also learning Bible verses and songs which we are mostly chanting.  I am sure they would love to tell you or sing for you.

A Request:  If there are any changes in your family, please let me know.  Changes in the family, even the loss of a well-loved pet, can deeply affect a child.  We would like to be aware so that we can help your child through this difficult time.  And, I would like to pray for you and your child and help you in any way that I or Community Chapel can help.

If you have any questions about my role at NCLC, the Bible curriculum, helping your child develop his/her relationship with God, or any family concerns, please call me at NCLC, 603-883-4356. 

Nancy’s Notes

The children couldn’t WAIT to sing Jingle Bells, so we started off December with merry singing voices accompanied by red wrist jingle bells. We continued the holiday merriment by singing other favorites, such as “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, and did a lively dance to a swing version of “Frosty the Snowman.”  Our Christmas season wouldn’t have been complete without a “performance” of the Nutcracker Ballet’s “Russian Dance,” in which the children learned how to listen to the music and anticipate the part of the music where the big drum played and they were supposed to jump! During the rest of the short piece, they learned to run on their tippy toes with graceful arms, and then we all learned how to bow and curtsy at the end. The children were tired after all of this running, so afterwards they flopped on the floor and we made up a song about making angels in the snow.

 

In January, I will be bringing in different instruments (flute, cello, guitar) for the children to hear and for the older ones to try. We will continue with our winter-themed songs, and do lots of gross motor movement songs and dances to keep them moving, even when the weather prevents them from going outside.

 

Happy Singing!
