“‘Come and follow me,’
Matthew 4:19 NIV
Who can you follow?
I can follow Jesus.
ACTIVITY: How We Show Love
What You Need: Band-Aid®, toy, food item
What You Do: Place the items in three different spots around the room. Say the following phrases and have the children run to the item that matches the phrase you say. “You can show love by helping someone when they are hurt (BAND-AID®). You can show love by sharing your toys (toy). You can show love by giving food to someone who is hungry (food).” Do it again!
What You Say: “That was so much fun! Jesus wants us to follow Him by loving one another. We love each other when we help and share. When we love others, we are following Jesus. Who can you follow? I can follow Jesus!”
“Dear God, Thank You for giving us Jesus to be our friend forever. Thank You that He loves us and shows us how to love others. Help us to love everyone the way Jesus loves us. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

Scripture: Luke 15:21 – 32
I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing (Father and Older Brother)
When you don’t forgive, you miss out.
Forgiveness definition: Deciding that someone who has wronged you doesn’t have to pay.
WHAT YOU NEED:
upbeat music, a fun snack or treat (whatever you have at home!), any party supplies you have on-hand (hats, streamers, decorations, etc.)
WHAT YOU DO:
Throw a forgiveness party!
The father in today’s story was overwhelmed with joy when his son returned, so he threw a massive party. You can also celebrate forgiveness by having a mini-party of your own.
If you don’t have party supplies, make some! Make a paper chain, banners, or even your own party hats.
As you’re enjoying your fun snack or treat, engage your family in a conversation about today’s Bible story, you can find the links below.

Headline: The Confidence of Clarity
Focus Scripture: Judges 6:36-40
Main Point: There will be times in your life that you will face a challenge when it comes to your connections. An issue with w friend, a disagreement with family, or maybe even a difficult experience in your job will cause you to wonder whether or not you should be connected to them in the first place. We can be tempted to label difficulty or hard times as a rough patches that we just have to get through. But it is so important, in those moments, to God and ask whether or not God wants you to be in that situation. Ask God for clarity in seasons of confusion, strain, or even doubt. God just might be telling you that something needs to change. Make sure you go to God and figure out whether you are in a rough patch, or whether God is giving you a red flag and telling you “I have something better”.
- In the text, what did God expect Gideon to do?
- What did Gideon ask God to do?
- Gideon asked God for confirmation, more than once! Do you think sometimes we can be afraid to ask God for clarification?
- Why can it be scary for us to ask God for clarification?
- Have you ever had an issue with a friend or a person you were connected to that made you doubt whether or not you were supposed to be connected at all?
- What did you do when that moment happened?
- What can make it difficult to decide to leave a relationship if you know that you can’t be connected anymore?
- How can you seek God in moments of confusion?
- What can you ask God to show you, or reveal to you, that might give you the clarity you need?

Topic: “How to Stay Sane”
Scripture: Philippians 4 Verses 6-8 NIV
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Attached Questions: What drives you insane? Who is the first person that you talk to when something wrong happens? Is prayer your last resort? How should crazy situations be handled?
Brief Synopsis: Life is bound to happen to all of us. There will be unexpected twist and turns that leave us listless. As a result, anxiety travels into every crevice and crack of our lives. In order to combat anxiety, we must refrain from resorting to what the world has to offer us. However, we must resort to prayer. In essence, we should not worry about anything but pray about everything. When we follow that command, there is a promise of peace that we will not be able to comprehend. There will be peace that guards our hearts and minds despite the anxiety that attempts to reign and rule over us.

Please see this video lesson from Rev. Erica and Russell St. Bernard
Scripture: Matthew 8:23 – 27
Few people would disagree that we’re living through some difficult times currently and could even call these times a storm. In this scripture the disciples were dealing with a storm like they had never faced before. Some of them I am sure thought that they would die there. However, Jesus was on the boat and He was able to control what they couldn’t control. In the same way God can control what we cannot control in the moments that we don’t know what to do. The focus of our teaching with this scripture is on the fact that Jesus got in the boat and the discipled followed Him into the boat that would lead them into the storm. What do you do when you didn’t expect the storm but you know that you’re following Jesus? When you have been on water before but never a storm like this? You do what they did, go to the place where help is, for sure and ask for it. Jesus is our source of help and the one that we can trust through all of our storms.
- How can you trust Jesus through your current storm ?
- Do you believe that Jesus can see you in the midst of this storm?
- What friends and/or family members can you call to pray with you while you’re in the storm?
Sermon Title: “When Storm Clouds Come”
Scripture: Mark 1 : 15 New International Version (NIV)/Acts 8 : 1 New King James Version (NKJV)
Mark 1:15 “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!”
Acts 8:1 On that day a great persecution broke out against the church at Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria.
It’s Umbrella Time:
- the umbrella of the gospel of Jesus Christ,
- the umbrella of the good news of the kingdom of God,
- the umbrella of the revelation that God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself,
1. How can you prove whether it is or is not judgement?
2. Does God have to send trouble in order to use trouble?
3. Why does God send judgement in scripture?
- That judgement is not act of wrath it is an act of love.
4. The question is not is this the judgement of God, the question should be is there a case for the judgement of God in 2020.
As the house shifts, everyone who is connected to the house needs to be ready to shift.
Repent – Is not a negative, it is the first step to the positive.
