Hello! Happy Father’s Day! 🙂
Today Amanda hosted church, Simeon read the story, and Justin preached.
The story was about the wise men following the star, meeting Herod, and visiting and worshiping Jesus.
Justin wanted to talk about God as our Father for Father’s day and read a few passages about that. Here are the ones we read…
- The Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6:9-13)
- Matthew 7:7-12
- Matthew 10:19-20
- Galatians 4:4-7
- 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
- Proverbs 3
- Malachi 2:10
- Psalm 68:5
Today church was hosted by the Wolfe’s.
Simeon read to the kids about the angels appearing to the shepherds and telling them to visit Baby Jesus.
In today’s sermon Justin read the story of the death of Polycarp, a 2nd century martyr. Then Eliza, Jude, and Tracy read Acts 5. We talked about the the attitude of the early Church in rejoicing in suffering for Christ.
Some things that were brought up in our discussion:
- Jesus says all the trials we face will be made up for in the Kingdom of Heaven.
- It should be a joy to serve Jesus and come to shame for Him.
Hello, today we met at the Wolfes house, Simeon read the story, and Justin preached.
We started reading stories for the Childrenbased on the Gospel accounts. We read about about all the things that the prophets said about the coming of the baby. Then we read the story of the Angel Gabriel coming to visit Mary. He declared that she was going to be the mother of the King and her cousin Elizabeth was going to have a baby too.
The sermon covered John 14:15 – 14:31 and we discussed Christian attitudes towards sin. Can we be perfect and cease from sinning?
