3rd and 4th Graders Learn to Be Jesus’ Hands and Feet (1/17/16)

Posted by on Jan 19, 2016 in Bible Study, EventReport, kids, SS-kids | 0 comments

The Third and Fourth graders in our Sunday School are practicing to be the “Hands” and “Feet” of Jesus by making a 3-4 Graders- Hands-Feet Chain _fbCE 400x300chain recording their good deeds.

We’re hoping that by the end of the year, our chain will reach around the room!

Stand in Gap 236x118

 

Standing in the Gap

As we saw in a recent sermon, Ezekiel 22:30-31 uses the image of someone “Standing in the Gap” between God’s love and humanity’s sinfulness.  God is calling us to be “priests”; to bring God’s love and grace to those who do not know Him.

And that’s exactly what our kids are doing!

By learning to “stand in the gap”, our kids are living out Galatians 6:9-10…

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

 

Doing it for Jesus

The class has been studying Matthew 25:35-36…

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,  I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

And they’ve been actively putting this into action.  Here are a few examples of what they’ve been doing recently…

  • Collecting food/drinks for the food pantry.
  • Inviting someone to Sunday School.
  • Donating clothes for the Angels of God ministry.
  • Writing cards for Philadelphia police officer Jesse Hartnett who was recently attacked and shot.
  • Making cards to send to a prison.
  • Sending cards to our shut-ins.

May all of us follow the example of these kids and make our own chain of good deeds which reach the hands of Jesus into a needy world!
