    School Age Worship

    In today’s lesson, we’re learning about when Jesus healed a leper. Now, the people with Jesus were probably running away from the guy but not Jesus. He looked right at the guy and said, “I’ll heal you.” And, guess what? The leper was healed instantly! Kids, this story teaches us an important lesson. Jesus cares about everyone, even the people who feel left out or unimportant. Let’s remember that in our own lives and be kind to everyone, no matter who they are.

    • Memory Verse: Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” And instantly the leprosy disappeared. Matthew 8:3
    • Main Point: Jesus cares about everyone, especially those who feel left out.
    • Bible Story: Jesus heals the leper.

    Parent Resources

    Family dinners can be a powerful time for your family to connect and discuss, if you are willing to leverage those moments. Check out this month’s Online Parenting Class for some helpful ideas.

    The Bible speaks often about food and meals. There is something spiritually significant about meals. Think about it for a moment. Christ referred to Himself as the “Bread of Life” (John 6). The way He asked His disciples and us to remember Him was around a meal (Matt. 2). Even when we look to the future and eternity, we will be celebrating at a meal, the “Wedding Supper of the Lamb” (Rev. 19). Meals are powerful moments for your family. Do not miss out on those moments and the power they can provide.



    From the “big picture” to practical resources, watch this short video to learn three simple tips on starting a spiritual dialogue with your child.

    We believe in you and your family. If you ever need anything, please let us know.

    Since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. (Hebrews 12:1-2)

  • Prayer Requests

    The power of prayer is undeniable. Our Lord Himself said, “Ask, and you shall receive” (John 16:24). Your requests become that much more powerful when others are praying for you as well. 

    Please share your prayer requests with us by completing a Prayer Request Form

  • Thank you for Your offering

    Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed. – Proverbs 19:17
