Beauty Creating

This month we have been looking at the throughline Beauty Creating. 
It was very fitting, then, that we started by recognizing Sarah's artwork that 
was selected for the Rankin Run T shirts. 
The Rankin Run is one more way we can let our lights shine in our community. 
We were glad to play a small part in raising over one million dollars for cancer care in Niagara. 

We watched a powerful video on the greatest artist of all time:

While we watched the video, we also watched Claire help Mrs. Boks with a piece of art.

... and this was the finished product:

Some of our students worked in a praise team to create beauty with their 
voices as we continued to learn a new song Louder.

God has made so many amazing and beautiful things! But do we spend enough time marveling at his beautiful things or creating our own beautiful things? 
We can get distracted!
We want to remind ourselves to turn off the screens, put away the distractions and take some time every day to see beauty and create beauty!

What can we do when we want to be out enjoying creation and creating beauty? 
Our afternoon kindergartners shared their ideas with us!

Ascension Day

Today we remembered ascension day, 
the day that Jesus ascended into heaven after his resurrection and time on earth. 

We read the story of Jesus ascension from Acts 1:9-11

9 After Jesus had said this and while they were watching, he was taken up into a cloud. They could not see him, 10 but as he went up, they kept looking up into the sky.

Suddenly two men dressed in white clothes were standing there beside them. 11 They said, “Why are you men from Galilee standing here and looking up into the sky? Jesus has been taken to heaven. But he will come back in the same way that you have seen him go.”

Our SK students sang, "Vivant, Vivant" (Alive, Alive).
Our Jesus is alive forevermore!

We're also learning a new song "Louder" by Matt Redman.

We love to sing and learn new songs!

All Things Bright and Beautiful!

Today in chapel we looked at the throughine Creation Enjoying.
How awesome and amazing our creator is!
As we dig deeper into this idea this month, we will plant seeds to become trees, 
marvel at the new spring growth, take a closer look at insects and animals
and marvel at how God put it all together!

Everything was created by him, everything in heaven
    and on earth, everything seen and unseen,
including all forces    and powers,
and all rulers and authorities.
All things were created by God’s Son,
and everything was made
    for him.
