Weekly Big God Story resources for parents:
For April 17th
BEGINNER’S MINISTRY (birth-PreK)
In this week’s Big God Story-Jesus is the Good News-The Great Commission (Matt. 28:16-20)
Before Jesus ascended to heaven, He met with His apostles on a mountain in Galilee. The
Lord commissioned the apostles to spread the good news to all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
ILLUMINATE (K-5th grade)
The Big God Story for Sunday is- God is Love (Luke 10:25-37)
In today’s portion of The Big God Story, we’ll hear a short story called a parable. Jesus shared this parable about a Samaritan man showing great love to his enemy. Through this parable, Jesus challenged His listeners to think differently about their responsibility to love because God is love.
Jesus cares about who we are on the inside. He cares about what’s going on in our hearts. He cares that we love everyone—not just the people we naturally want to love. Here’s the good news: God created everyone—even that person who is so hard to love! Sure, we may have a hard time loving them sometimes, but we can always go to God and ask Him for His help because God is love. In those moments, God reminds us of His great love for us and gives us the power to love others.
