Sunday the Pre-K, K-2nd and Venture Club (3rd-5th Grades) will be learning about the Disciples. Jesus called 12 disciples, symbolizing the 12 Tribes of Israel, to follow him and learn from his example first hand. Instead of sitting in the synagogue and reading and talking, the disciples were "in the field" learning how to be part of the synagogue outside of the synagogue. Jesus called disciples that were not typical priests or scribes, but that came from a variety of places within society. This week we'll learn who they were and how Jesus called them. In our own lives, how does Jesus call to us (or how do we feel called by the Spirit of God)? In our own lives, how do we listen for the Way of God, and how do we keep learning beyond the walls of our sanctuary and church building? Who mentors us today? Is it just pastors and teachers, or are there other significant voices and role models in our lives today?
JYF will continue reading Revelation.
MYF will continue reading Matthew (one of the four Jesus stories in our Bible).
Adults, this week is the notable chapter on "Jesus and Hell" by McLaren.
