Weekly Big God Story resources for parents:
For February 14th
BEGINNER’S MINISTRY (birth-PreK)
In this week’s Big God Story-Jesus is Powerful-Healing of the blind man (John 9:1-12)
Jesus saw a man without sight. His disciples questioned the reason for the man’s blindness. Jesus replied, “This happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.” After saying this, He healed the man’s blindness. Only by God’s power could this miracle happen. Many people who knew the blind man didn’t recognize him anymore. The man told them who had done this miracle so all could see that Jesus is powerful.
ILLUMINATE (K-5th grade)
The Big God Story for Sunday is- God is Merciful-Jonah (Jonah 1-4)
God chose Jonah to speak to a group called the Ninevites—a very powerful group of people who were some of Israel’s worst enemies. Even so, God loved the Ninevites and wanted them to turn from their evil ways. God Is Merciful, so He wanted the Ninevites to know Him. Just like it brought God joy to show mercy to the Ninevites, it brings Him joy to show mercy on us today.
