What is SON STATION?

Here at TEFC our Children's Ministry is known as "Son Station." We exist to help develop children that want to read their Bible, pray, memorize scripture, and share their faith. Our goal is to come alongside parents and help them to lay the foundation of a Christ-centered life.

Old Story New: Ten-Minute Devotions to Draw Your Family to God
By:
Marty Machowski

Easy-to-Use Devotional Helps Parents Share the Living Gospel Story! Old Story New makes it easy for parents to stay on the life-giving course of sharing the gospel with their family. This second volume in Marty Machowski’s family devotional series, Old Story New continues the gospel story begun in the Old Testament devotional, Long Story Short. Using the same effective ten-minute-a-day structure, it connects children to living gospel truth through 78 New Testament stories. Simple discussion questions (and answers) for each day’s devotion help children understand and connect the story of salvation with their own lives. Old Story New is suitable for children from preschool through high school.

Wise Words
By:
Peter Leithart

In the tradition of Grimm's fairy tales, Peter Leithart has collected eighteen bedtime tales, each set invoking imagery, plots, and themes taken from Scripture, and each reveals a biblical proverb.

Fool Moon Rising
By:
Kristi and T. Lively Fluharty

Through this illustrated tale about the moon stealing the sun's glory, children learn about the importance of humility and the dangers of pride.

This rhyming, rollicking tale tells of a crime of cosmic proportions: the moon, blinded by pride, fails to see the true source of his abilities-the light provided by the sun. He boasts of his ability to shine, to change shape throughout each month, and to swell the tides. One day, overwhelmed by a piercing ray of sunshine, the moon repents of his pride and changes his ways, and from that point on he is happy to reflect the sun's light.

This beautifully illustrated book introduces the concept of humility to children. Readers will be reminded that everything we have, including our gifts and talents, is from God. Just as the moon learns to boast only of the sun, children-and their parents-learn that to boast of anything other than the Son is utter foolishness.

 

The Very First Easter
By:
Paul L. Maier

Ten-year-old Christopher yearns for stories that are real truth, not fiction. "'Remember, Mom? I don t like fairy tales anymore,' Christopher said with a sigh." So Mom and Dad tell Christopher the story of the very first Easter, and the sorrow and joy of Jesus' trial, death, and resurrection. Christopher learns important details about this miraculous event that help him understand the season s celebration. And he discovers his own special link to the very first Easter. Recommended in Catholic Mosaic Materials. Author: Paul L. Maier, Illustrated by Frank Ordaz Reading Level: Ages 4-8

The Big Picture Story Bible
By:
David R. Helm

No child is too young to begin learning about the greatest love story of all—God’s love for his people, as portrayed in the Bible. David Helm and Gail Schoonmaker have together created a colorful book of Bible stories written especially for children ages 2–7. Rather than simply retelling portions of the Bible, this book presents the big picture—the unified story running through the Old and New Testaments. Twenty-six stories together form parts of this big picture.

Simply written and beautifully illustrated, this book teaches children the Bible’s whole story so they can begin to appreciate the fulfillment of God’s promise to his people. The Big Picture Story Bible is perfect for parents to read to their children and for older children to read on their own.

First published in 2004, The Big Picture Story Bible has been widely praised and used by parents. It now comes with an audio recording of the book, read by the author and presented on two CDs, one each for the Old and New Testaments. Great for Sunday school classes and trips in the car, children can listen to the text and follow along in the book.
