Worship Blog

Yesterday’s worship was a bit out of the ordinary. It was amazing…which isn’t the reason it was awesome. As per usual, our children entered the service waving palm branches. This has become somewhat of a tradition in celebration of Palm Sunday. Continue reading Palm Sunday Celebration

The Armor of God: How to WIN against SIN

This past Sunday: The Shoes of the Gospel of Peace

Children’s Lesson:

When we put on these shoes and remember the gospel every day, we are able to follow Jesus instead of Satan and tell everyone we meet about God’s love.

What is the Gospel of Peace? The Gospel of Peace is that Jesus came and died on the cross for our sins and then rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven. This means that if we believe in Jesus Christ and ask Him to forgive us of our sins, then we can live a peaceful life without worry. We don’t have to worry because we know we are going to Heaven.

Why do you think we have to prepare our feet with this? Our job as warriors for God is to let as many people as we can know about the Gospel. One way we can do this is to tell them about the ABC’s of salvation.

“A” means you accept that you’re a sinner and need Jesus to stop from sinning.

“B” means you believe that Jesus Christ has already died for all of your sins and wants you to follow Him for the rest of your life and someday go to Heaven.

“C” means you confess your sins to Jesus and ask Him to come into your heart and forgive you of your sins.

1st & 2nd Grade do the craft part. The “shoes” that they made were a paper foot shape that lay over their shoe with (yarn) lace-up strings to the mid-calf. After the Sunday school hour, saw a cute little first grade girl walking ever-so-slowly-carefully with baby steps. She informed me these were her PEACE shoes and she needed to walk very carefully! It was adorable, as from a distance you would have thought she was walking on bubbles, trying not to pop them!

Next week: The Shield of Faith

Ephesians 6:11

“Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.”
