10/04/2020 Parable of the Vineyard

The thief who died on the cross next to Jesus entered paradise where he is enjoying eternal... and everlasting life with Christ just the same as Peter, James, and John, who literally gave their lives in service to the Savior. Is that fair? Find out with the Parable of the Vineyard.

10/11/2020 The Wedding Bankquet

The parable of the Wedding Bankquet can be challenging to undertand. In this story it's apparent that the chosen people (the Jews) have ignored the call of God.... Therefore, God calls everyone else (the Gentiles) to the party (kingdom of heaven). However, be cautions, not everyone is allowed in.

10/18/2020 Paying Taxes

In today's story the Pharisees once again try to trick Jesus by asking him if it is right to pay the imperial tax to Caesar or not? The questioners have carefully crafted a question that allows only a yes-or-no answer.... Their purpose in doing so is to limit Jesus' options so that he has no choice but to answer in a way that will compromise him. If Jesus answers that the taxes are lawful, he will alienate the people, who hate the tax and the coin. If he answers that the taxes are not lawful, the Romans will arrest him for sedition. Either way, Jesus loses and his enemies win. See how he responds in today's lesson.

10/25/2020 The Greatest Commandment

Jesus defines for the Pharisees the two great commandments for living a godly life—both of which ... revolve around love. This was true in Jesus's time and true for us today. We could use a bit of love all around.

11/08/2020 Ten Bridesmaids

Do you stop to smell the roses?... In this week's lesson Jesus tells us the parable of the Ten Bridesmaids to teach us that there are so many beautiful things in this world. If we are to enjoy all that God has created we must be attentive. That means we must take time to look and see what is around us. We must pay attention so we don’t miss God's blessings.

11/15/2020 Parable of the Talents

With the Parable of the Talents, Jesus reinforces the principle of stewardship. As believers..., we are all given resources according to our skills and abilities, but those resources ultimately belong to God. We will eventually answer for how we invest them.

11/22/2020 Sheep and Goats

In this parable, the King separates the sheep from the goats. Unlike sheep, goats are known for being headstrong, self-reliant, and independent. For the purposes of Jesus's story, they contrast perfectly with sheep.... The "sheep" are given their kingdom inheritance for the services they rendered to the King. Jesus gives the same message from the negative perspective. The goats are condemned because of what they didn't do. To their shame, they didn't realize that passing up opportunities to do good for others was the same as passing up opportunities to serve their King. Do you consider yourself a sheep or a goat?

12/06/2020 John the Baptist Prepares the Way

John is better known to us as John the Baptist, or John the Baptizer. He must have been an interesting person. He didn't live in the city. He lived out in the desert, or wilderness.... He didn't eat hamburgers and French fries; he ate locusts and honey. He didn't wear a suit, or even jeans and a tea shirt; he wore clothes made out of camel's skin and he had a leather belt around his waist. So what did John do that was so special?

12/13/2020 John the Baptist Proclaims Jesus' Coming

There was a great man called John. Some people thought he might be the Messiah.... But when they asked him who he was, he said he was NOT the Messiah. His job was to point them to the real Messiah. That's our job as Christians too.

12/20/2020 Angels Visit

01/17/2021 God Calls Samuel

Once upon a time there was a little boy named Samuel. One night, God called to Samuel but he didn't know it was God calling him.... It took several tries before Samuel learned it was God calling. He had to learn to listen to God's voice first. It's the same in our lives. If we want God to speak to us, we have to listen for Him. We might not hear a voice as Samuel did, but we'll hear God speaking in our minds and in our hearts. Join us to find out how.

01/24/2021 Jonah and the Big Fish

Have you ever chosen not to follow directions and if so why not? Sometimes we might not want ...to follow directions because we don't understand why we must do something, or disagree with the task at hand, or be afraid. The same happened to Jonah in today's lesson. God wanted him to do somethingn but Jonah disobey God, and he had consequences.

01/31/2021 Teaching and Healing

It's hard to teach if you're not prepared. Teaching takes a lot of preparation and training.... It also helps to know the whole story, the big picture. In today's story, Jesus does some teaching, and surprises everyone with the way he teaches. It says that he teaches "as one having authority, and not as the scribes". Join us to find out how.

02/07/2021 Jesus Heals

In this week's story, Jesus visits the home of Simon. When he got there he learned that Simon's mother-in-law was sick in bed with a fever. She was a stranger to Jesus but He goes right to her and helps to make her well.... Sometimes it's an uncomfortable feeling – and takes a little bravery – to do the right thing, but Jesus never shied away from helping when he was needed. Don't take chances getting sick but there are lots of ways to help. Sometimes just being and showing concern is enough. Will you keep an eye out for people in need this week and do the right thing? Your help could mean a lot to them.

02/14/2021 The Transfiguration

Take a look at these letters: M O M - Does that spell MOM or does that spell WOW? It's a matter of perspective isn't it? Writing MOM on a piece of paper can be read multiple ways just by turning the paper in a different direction. It's the same paper – but we're seeing it in whole new way.... Something similar happens in this week's lesson. Several of the disciples are walking with Jesus up a high mountain when all of a sudden they see him in a new and different way. His clothes suddenly become a dazzling white and they hear the voice of God explaining that "this is my Son." There's a special name for this in the Bible. Join us Sunday to find out what it is.

02/21/2021 Noah's Ark

One day God looked down on the world that he had created and he saw how mean and evil the people had become. It broke his heart... to see the way people were acting. "I'm sorry I made them, he said, "I'll get rid of them all." And from here we learn the story about Noah's Ark. But in today's world and in our society, are disesases such as cancer and covid the new flood? Interesting topic this Sunday.

02/28/2021 Abraham and Sarah's Visitors

If God knocked on your door how would you greet Him? Let me give you a different perspective: ... You're expecting a relaxing day at home when the phone rings and you are confronted with a call for help, what do you do? That's the test. When you are busy around the house cleaning, and dinner burning on the stove, and the refrigerator has just quit and the sink is clogged up and you've got a thousand different things on your mind, and your child comes up and asks you a question which is seems of little importance, what do you do then? That's the test. When your neighbor gets sick and somebody has to take care of the children, what do you do? What is your reaction? That's the test. These are the tests from God. This is the way God tested Abraham as we'll see in this week's lesson.

03/14/2021 The Light of the World

This week, John 3 tells us that God's intention is not to condemn. But God does not force us to be saved either.... God created us with freedom of choice. That means that we can make bad choices as well as good choices. Reflecting back on this past week/month/year, have you chosen wisely or unwisely?

03/21/2021 Serve and Follow

In this week's lesson we learn that Jesus sees us as His servants.... He has work for us to do which is to follow Him as disciples and doing what He has commanded us to do - walking in His footsteps. In that way we will be where He is, in the place He wants us to be. In this life and the next.

03/28/2021 Holy Week

Jesus had traveled all over Israel sharing the good news about God's love. He helped people along the way and performed many miracles. Now he was coming to the capital..., a big important city. His word had spread and many had awaited his arrival crowding the streets to cheer. They treated Him as royalty spreading leafy branches that they had cut from the fields. This was an act generally used for a king or important ruler.

04/11/2021 Doubting Thomas

Do you believe in Santa Claus? How about the Tooth Fairy? Surely you believe in the Easter Bunny, especially after last week? Let's get serious and push the envelope... - do you believe in God, and Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord? It's difficult to believe and almost impossible to explain how we know that God's word is true. All we have is the Bible, and the Apostles' Creed we recite during worship. In our teachings we use the story of Thomas to remind us that if we believe we are called blessed. As with many other things in our lives we cannot always know beyond a shadow of a doubt, but through faith and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we trust the reality of the Bible.
