Meeting The Builder

In this series we are looking at the people who met Jesus on his journey from the stable to the cross.

Mary Magdelene

This week the children learned about Mary Magdelene.  Mary Magdalene is a woman who is mentioned in all four gospels of the New Testament. She became a faithful follower of Jesus.  She was also there to witness the crucifixion and burial of Jesus, and was the first person to see and talk with him after he arose from the dead.

Mary Magdalene showed Jesus love in different ways: she cried over his feet, wiped her tears with her hair, then poured perfume all over his feet! But Jesus loved it, because he loves it when we show him our love.

How do you show Jesus your love?

We can pray, we can sing, we can dance, we can raise our hands.  What can you think of?

Here are some songs you can sing together with your family.  Maybe there are others you can sing too!

Peter walks on water.

This week Corrie shared the story of the disciples travelling with Jesus.  Here is the story to help you remember.

  1. Why do you think the disciples did not recognize Jesus?
  2. What did they think he was?
  3. Peter left the boat when Jesus called,  would you have left the boat?
  4. What did Peter need to do in order to walk on the water?
  5. How are you like Peter?   What kind of things do we need to trust Jesus with?

 

Here is a colouring page you can print.  It will help you remember to be brave, have confidence and trust in Jesus

Meeting the Builder

In this series we look at those who met Jesus on his journey from the stable from the cross.

Crowds gather.

Everywhere Jesus went crowds would gather?  Can you find Jesus in this crowd?  Hint:  Jesus is wearing a purple robe and he has a halo above his head.

Nicole told us a little about who gathered to see Jesus. There were fishermen and farmers, Israelites and Galelians, sinners and many many more. Why did they gather?  Some wanted healing, some wanted to learn maybe some were just curious. Would you have joined the crowd?

When one crowd gathered, Jesus told them a parable (story) about a sower of seeds  Nicole showed us this video in a shortened version. Watch this one to help remember where the seeds landed

Where will your seed land? Is your faith going to grow?

The Woman at the Well.

Have you ever been very thirsty? So thirsty that no amount of water helped.

Today Corrie shared the story of the Samaritan woman who met Jesus at the well. It was only when she learned of the “living water” that Jesus could provide did her life change  She went on to tell everyone about Jesus.

Are you like the woman at the well?  Here’s her story

Our youngest  group used syringes and coloured water on snow.  Just like real water, “living water” will spread when we share it

The Twelve Disciples

Today Cynthia shared the story of the 12 Disciples. We learned that Jesus found his disciples after a very difficult time in his own life. Was he looking for a community to help support him?  What does that teach us about our community?

Each disciple chose to follow Jesus without question. The simply stopped what they were doing and followed. Is that easy to do?  If Jesus asked you to drop everything and go, could you do it?

What is even more remarkable is that the Disciples continued to follow Jesus and spread his word after his death and resurrection. Are we Disciples too?
