Theme for ’16-’17


We are very excited to begin a new theme that focuses on Jesus’ teachings. We’ll be breaking this into 3 big ideas that Jesus taught:

  • The Kingdom is here!
  • Love God and love each other!
  • Put your faith into action!

In order to find out what Jesus had to say about these big ideas, we’ll be looking at the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. We’ll explore Jesus’ parables and his direct teachings with two purposes: to understand what Jesus meant, and to apply it to our own lives today.

Here’s something you can do at home:

If you haven’t done so in a while, read the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Consider reading Jesus’ teachings and parables together with your child (you may want to use a children’s bible for this activity). It is also interesting to read another translation alongside the NIV. Some others are: ERV (Easy to Read Version), CEB (Common English Bible) and The Message (which is more of a paraphrase than an official translation). These can be found online at
