Pastor Dan gave his primary stewardship message, the children joined the band at 9:00, and our Parenting Matters class talked about guiding children through technology. Let's see what else went on with the weekend that was.
Today's children's moment focused on the music of our church, and the children joined the band for Jesus Loves Me.Posted by West Market Kids - The Children's Ministry of West Market Street UMC on Sunday, October 11, 2015
This is what we talked about
Middle School Small Groups
Our teenagers are continuing their series titled “Who Is God?” Each conversation focuses on important truths about God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. This week we talked about Jesus, God the Son—our Savior and King.
In this second lesson we discussed what the Bible says about Jesus how came to earth as fully God and fully human—the Savior of the world and the one who paid the price for our sins.
This week, I encourage you to spend a few minutes talking with your teenager about our lesson. Consider building your conversation around these kinds of questions:
- When have you seen Jesus be “light” that “shines in the darkness”?
- Jesus understands what life is like here on earth—and he faced emotions and experiences, just like you go through. Why is that important to remember?
- When do you find it tough to believe that Jesus is who he says he is?
Thanks for letting us partner with you in helping your teenager follow Jesus. Have a wonderful week!
High School Small Groups
We’re halfway through our series focusing on the questions of Jesus. Each week, students are examining a different passage of Scripture to discover what was behind some of the questions Jesus asked in the Gospels.
In this second lesson, we explored Matthew 19:16-22, where Jesus encountered a rich young man. He had lived an exemplary life but felt that something was still missing. Jesus’ question about his focus on the good things of this life rather than a focus on “the One who is good” challenged the young man’s priorities.
This week, I encourage you to spend a few minutes talking with your teenager about our lesson. Consider building your conversation around these questions:
- Is it possible to be “good enough” in this Christian life?
- How does Jesus’ question for the rich young man affect us today?
- Do you think the rich young man eventually changed for the better after having met Jesus? Why or why not?
Have a spectacular week!
