This Week's Teaching: 1.17

explore the bible together!

In today's reading we take a hike BACK to the Old Testament and where we left off before Advent season. We're learning about Israel's third king, King Solomon and his "big request" from God. Listen in as we hear how we too can request big things from God and learn how he's already given us what we've asked for, in his Son Jesus.

Discussion questions:
  1. Why do you think Solomon asked for wisdom instead of something else?
  2. How is Jesus greater than Solomon? (In New Testament Jesus said he is greater than Solomon—so Jesus said so! Read Matthew 12:42. Emphasize that Jesus is GOD, therefore he’s wiser than anyone no matter how wise he or she is. God knows everything! The Bible says that all wisdom is found in Jesus. People went to Solomon for wisdom but Jesus came to US. We can look to him for everything we need to know. Read Colossians 2:3)
  3. Why do you think we sometimes refuse to seek wisdom from God? (Think about the humility that is required to seek wisdom—you have to believe you’re not wise yourself and that’s hard for us to admit sometimes. Some people might refuse to seek wisdom from God because they are selfish and don’t want to have to follow God’s law or read from his Word. It’s hard to be disciplined enough to seek wisdom from God by praying and reading his word, but he will help us create these habits if we only ask!)

Kids Connect

Children are not only fully capable of worshiping the One, True God, God in Christ tells us we are to become LIKE THEM in order to know Him more. That's why all of our programming for children is focused on worship first!

Nursery


Your child will experience a safe environment where she plays with friends, interacts with Bible stories, and receives focused attention from our staff and volunteers.

Pre K-Second Grade


We provide an environment focused on meaningful worship and engaging instruction for and with kids.

Third-Fifth Grade


We want your kids to LOVE Jesus and LOVE His Church! Our programming for upper elementary fosters faith and friendship.

COVID Response

Please  RSVP EACH Sunday (by the Friday before) so that we can prepare for your child. On Sunday morning, please head to the NEW entrance off of the parking lot/4th street, near the Fellowship Hall, for check in. (Nursery check in is available at the nursery window, inside the church.)  

  • Children 3 years old* and older must wear masks at all times.
  • Your child's temperature will be taken at check in. If your child has a temperature of 100.4 or greater, we ask that you leave the campus.
  • If your child exhibits any signs or symptoms of COVID19, please leave the church campus.
  • Please allow older children to walk to classrooms unattended as this reduces the traffic on our staircases and narrow hallways.
  • Please bring a water bottle with you if needed. No water fountains will be accessible at this time.
  • No food will be served in the children's ministry area*.
  • Please sanitize/wash your child's hands before entering our ministry space.
  • Social distancing practiced.
  • Increased cleaning and sanitation of surfaces has been occurring and will continue to occur throughout our church campus.
  • Please stay home for 2 weeks if you have tested positive for COVID or have been exposed to someone that has tested positive within a 2 week time period.

* An exception to mask wearing are those children who are not yet potty trained, 3 years old, and in the nursery.

*Children in the nursery will receive individually wrapped snacks such as pretzels or Goldfish crackers. Please visit our Nursery page for more information on our safety practices.
