"TeamKID-Kids In Discipleship," our exciting summer children's program will be held on Wednesday nights from June 17th- August 19th @ 7pm in the fellowship hall. Team kid is for children who are ENTERING kindergarten through children who have COMPLETED 6th grade. We will not have a children's program on Sunday evenings during the summer. I encourage you to continue to attend on Sunday evenings and enjoy worship and bible study as a family. Child care will be provided for nursery and preschool age children (4 and under) on both Sunday and Wednesday evenings.
NO TEAMKID ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 22ND, DUE TO THE MISSIONS CONFERENCE! WE WANT ALL THE KIDS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE MISSIONS CONFERENCE!!!
ADOPT-A-GRANDPARENT, Thursdays @ 2pm
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
Oak Crest Kids are partnering with the Midlothian Health Care nursing home to "Adopt-a-Grandparent." Every Thursday afternoon throughout the summer, we will take part in fun activities that the nursing home has planned for their residents. During that time, children will partner with their "adopted grandparent" to help them participate in the activity. We will also plan one Sunday evening during the months of June, July, and August to visit our "grandparents." Families with children of ALL AGES are encouraged to participate. Children under 8 MUST be accompanied by an adult.
VBS is going to be so AWESOME this year! Join us in Hometown Nazareth-- let's explore what life was like when Jesus was a kid! You’ll visit unique shops in the Marketplace, play Bible-times games, and listen to true stories about Jesus as told by his mom, Mary! You'll also get to eat yummy foods...just like what Jesus ate! To help out busy families, we will have finger foods available from 5:30-6:00 each night.
Unit Title: Paul’s Conversion and Ministry
Key Passage: Romans 1:16
Session Title: Paul Preached in Europe
Bible Passage: Acts 17:1–18:21
Big Picture Question: Who deserves our worship? Only the Lord—the one true God—deserves our
Christ Connection: The men of Athens worshiped a false god. Paul explained to them God’s
plan of salvation. He said that only God should be worshiped. Paul talked about Jesus and the
resurrection. People can know God because Jesus took the punishment for sin that separates
people from God.
In this week’s Bible story, Paul and Silas traveled to Thessalonica and began preaching in the synagogue about Jesus. Some became believers, but others wanted to attack them. Paul and Silas escaped and went to Berea. The Jews in Berea studied the Scriptures to make sure Paul was telling the truth. Many of them believed! But when the Jews in Thessalonica heard what was happening in Berea, they hurried there and caused trouble. So Paul and Silas went to Athens.
The city of Athens was a cultural center. People in Athens loved to hear about and study the latest ideas. Paul spoke with the Jews and the philosophers in the city. Athens was also full of idols to every kind of god. There was even an altar to an unknown god.
Paul began preaching, telling the people that they worshiped a god they did not know. But people can know the Lord God! The one true God made the world and everything in it! God was not like their idols. “We ought not to think that God is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and imagination of man,” Paul said. Paul told the people that God wanted them to turn away from their sins. Then Paul told them about Jesus and how He was raised from the dead. Some people made fun of Paul, but others believed.
From Athens, Paul went to Corinth. He tried to persuade the Jews in the synagogue that Jesus is the Christ, but they would not listen. Paul spoke to the Gentiles, and many of them believed and were baptized. God continued working through Paul.
The men of Athens worshiped many false gods. Paul explained to them God’s plan of salvation. He said that only God should be worshiped. Paul talked about Jesus and the resurrection. People can know God because Jesus took the punishment for sin that separates people from God. Only the Lord—the one true God—deserves our worship.
