Weekly Big God Story resources for parents:
For April 24th
BEGINNER’S MINISTRY (birth-PreK)
In this week’s Big God Story-God is Powerful-Peter heals cripple man) (Acts 3)
On their way to the temple, Peter and John passed by a beggar who had been lame since birth. The Holy Spirit prompted them to help the man. God’s power was on display when He healed the lame man, who immediately began to praise the Lord!
ILLUMINATE (K-5th grade)
The Big God Story for Sunday is- Jesus is Salvation-Parable of the Great Banquet (Luke 14:12-24)
In Jesus’ parable of the great banquet, we’re shown that we have a choice to make. God has prepared a banquet for us. He’s made the way for us to come to the banquet through Jesus’ death on the cross. He has sent out the invitation of salvation to all people, but we must accept the invitation in order to join in the banquet.
Jesus’ invitation of salvation isn’t just for you and for me. It’s for all people. It’s for the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind. It’s for the popular, the rich, the famous. It’s for everyone! For those we think are important and for those who we think are least important. We’re all unworthy to eat at God’s table, but Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross paid the price for our ticket to the banquet. Jesus is salvation.
