Sunday 6th September
You may be back to school this week and already finding that your relationships with your friends are not always easy! In this week’s ‘Sermon for Kids’ session it helps us to think about our attitude to our friends and how to put a Jesus perspective on it! Here’s a memory verse to take with you this week.
“If a fellow believer hurts you, go and tell him — work it out between the two of you. If he listens, you’ve made a friend.” Matthew 18:15
Here’s the lesson:
We are praying for you all as you start school again and meet your friends and maybe make some new friends too.

October 11th: Harvest
Do you ever forget to say ‘thank you ’? In the story today we see 9 people walk away after Jesus had healed them and only one returning to say ‘thank you’. Harvest is a time to give thanks for the way God has provided for us in our world and to pray for and give to people who don’t have everything they need. Ask God to show you how you can be generous with the things you have this week and to help you to be thankful for all that he gives you.
October 18th: St Luke
Today the church remembers St Luke, one of the 4 gospel writers, and the writer of Acts too. It means he wrote almost a quarter of the New Testament alone! This passage tells us about the 72 disciples Jesus sends out to tell about the Good News which is what St Luke did in his writing!
‘Jesus loves me this I know
For the bible tells me so’
Do you know this song? It tells about how the Bible, although full of laws and sayings, can be summed up in those words. The story today is about a lawyer who asked Jesus which was the most important law in the bible of the time. Read it to see what Jesus said and how different his answer was from what they were expecting!
