Elementary, April 18: Jesus Forgives Peter

Peter swore he would NEVER deny knowing Jesus – even if it cost him his life. But when Jesus was arrested, Peter began to fear that he, too, would be arrested. So, he denied knowing Jesus – just as Jesus predicted he would. Jesus was crucified that day and Peter must have wondered if he’d ever have a chance to repent. But he did! After Jesus was raised from the dead, he and Peter had breakfast on the shore of the Sea of Galilee and Jesus totally forgave Peter and gave him an important role in building His church.

Elementary, April 4: He Has Risen!

It’s finally here! It’s finally Easter! We couldn’t be more excited to celebrate. The story of Easter is the story of God stepping down from His throne to become one of us. It’s the story of Him living the perfect, sinless life that we weren’t able to live. It’s the story of Him dying – in our place – on the cross. It’s the story of Him rising from the dead to conquer sin and death and to offer us new life. Easter is good, good news!

Elementary, March 21: Keep a New Score Card

Jesus and his friends were walking along, and Jesus told his friends He was going to get arrested and killed, but that He would then rise from the dead. That’s a pretty serious statement! The disciples then started to get into an argument. They were arguing about which one of them was the best…Probably because they wanted to be the boss when Jesus was gone. Say what????

Elementary, February 28: Come Follow Me

Jesus has us burst into new ways of living is the Big Idea we shared with the kids today. We talked about how the disciples left their boats and followed Jesus immediately. In that moment their lives burst differently, but when we look at the scripture, we can guess that between John the Baptist and Jesus preaching in Galilee the disciples were primed and ready for something new.

Elementary, February 21: John the Baptist Prepares the Way

Hope is such a weird thing. It’s amazingly powerful, and can drive people to incredible feats and accomplishments, but we seldom notice the hope we have until we really need it. The people of Israel once had to wait 400 years to hear from God, a lot of them had HOPE He was going to do something awesome, but we can have even more HOPE because HE did what He said He was going to do.

Elementary, February 14: Blind Bartimaeus

As Jesus was preparing to leave Jericho, a man named Bartimaeus called out to him. Bartimaeus was blind, but he knew who Jesus was because he yelled “Son of David, have mercy on me!” When Jesus asked the blind man what he wanted, he responded “Rabbi, I want to be able to see.” Jesus told the man that his faith had healed him, and he was suddenly able to see! How awesome is that?
