Weekly Big God Story resources for parents:
For March 13th
BEGINNER’S MINISTRY (birth-PreK)
In this week’s Big God Story-Jesus is King-Triumphal Entry (Matt 21:1-11)
The people of Israel were crying out for a king. As Jesus rode into Jerusalem the people celebrated while they shouted, “Hosanna, Hosanna!” This cry was a cry for salvation. It was a plea to be rescued. Jesus rode into the city as a King who was coming to rescue His people. He came not as a political savior, but as the One who redeems us from our sin.
ILLUMINATE (K-5th grade)
The Big God Story for Sunday is- Jesus is King of Kings-Triumphal Entry (Matt 21:1-17)
When Jesus rode into Jerusalem that day, He knew the crowd had an incorrect view of Him. They thought He would only save them from their earthly problems. Jesus wanted them to know that His kingdom and His reign are much bigger and much greater than simply a kingdom on earth. But Jesus did not come as an earthly king on a warrior horse to take down the Roman government. He is God of the universe, the King of Kings, who sacrificed Himself in love to save people from sin and death!
