Morning Star Kids – Elementary

This lesson is specific for kiddos K-5th grade! Can you believe it? Easter is coming soon! In preparation for the Holy Week, we’re learning about some of the events leading up to the death and resurrection of Jesus. This week, we’ll be hearing about Jesus’ last supper with His disciples. When you’re ready, watch the lesson video with your kids. It’s fun for the whole family and there is an opportunity to pause and discuss. Afterwards, there are two great…

Morning Star Kids – Preschool

This lesson is specific for kiddos 2 years – preschool! In keeping in sync with the lessons our younger kiddos would be hearing and learning, we’re having a different leader teach the lesson! Keep a lookout each week! This week, teacher Deena leads songs and shares a story about Mary and Martha. See the video teaching below! Today’s true Bible story is going to teach us that Jesus wants to spend time with me. That’s our Big Idea for the day. In fact,…

Student Ministries Online

As we work to find the best way to do ministry in the midst of this season, we know one thing for sure: we still love our students! We’ve created two new YouTube channels for our middle and high schoolers so we can stay connected. We will continue to host RIOT and Highlife online on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7 pm, followed by virtual small groups (e-groups) hosted by small group leaders through video conferencing apps. To get connected to…

Keep On Worshiping

In this strange season of having to physically distance ourselves from others, I’m reminded of how meaningful our corporate worship is! And I am REALLY missing being together, in person, with my church family and worshiping through music together! I miss the sound of your voices, filling that North Auditorium with praise.   A big thank you to Robert and Brenna, who have led us in worship for our online services the last two weeks! We will absolutely continue to…

Dwell App

WHAT IF? What if we look at this season as an opportunity, rather than a burden? What if we take advantage of all the cancellations to slow down and focus on what is most important? What if it takes a global pandemic to make us hunger and thirst for God’s Word in a new and powerful way? What if you look back at the Coronavirus crisis and realize: that is when Scripture became a rhythm of your life you couldn’t…

Morning Star Kids

Hi Mstar Kids Parents! Services might be cancelled, but church is NOT! This is proof that the body of Christ cannot and should not be contained by 4 walls. With that in mind, we’re so excited to share this video resource with you and your children. Watch it together as a family and answer the discussion questions when prompted. The video is in the style of a fun morning talk show for kids. Both you and your kids will LOVE…

Mama Tribe – Activity Resources!

Hi Mamas! So . . . who’s got COVID-cabin fever already? Man, we have been thinking about all of you with littles! Even though we’ve had to cancel our upcoming events, we wanted to offer you some resources to keep those little ones busy, educated, and entertained! Here are some things we’ve found while combing through social media, and let us know if you’ve found other resources you think would be helpful so we can add them to the list! Zonder…

Women’s Retreat Postponed

Hi Friends, It probably comes as no surprise to you that due to the escalating spread of COVID-19 and the updated mandates from Governor Kate Brown, which restrict gatherings to no more than 25 people, Morning Star Women’s Retreat 2020 will be POSTPONED. We do not yet have a specific date for the rescheduled retreat, but we will let you know as soon as we do.   Of course, our team and our staff are incredibly disappointed to postpone our…

Spring Break Missions Cancellation

Updated March 17 Hey everyone! Katrina and Rob here. There are far more questions than answers so bear with us in this season. No matter how you feel about what’s going on, know that Student Ministries is continuing and we are doing our very best to make decisions that put Jesus first, and our students right behind that.  Here are some questions we want to address: Are the trips being rescheduled? It is our hope to reschedule to sometime late…

CR Gatherings Cancelled

Dear Forever Family, When I first came to the Lord over 30 years ago, one of my first memory verses was Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for harm, to give you a future and a hope.” I love that nothing surprises our God. His plan for us is good! And with Him we have a future and He is our hope! In the light of the…
