A Message from Pastor Jerry
The great violinist Niccolo Paganini willed his marvelous violin to the City of Genoa on condition that it must never be played. The wood of such an instrument, while used and handled, wears only slightly, but set aside, it begins to decay. Paganini's violin has today become worm-eaten and useless except as a relic.
As followers of Christ, we're called to actively serve in a great mission. However, much like Paganini's violin, we can either invite God to use us for His glorify, or politely decline the invitation, letting the beautiful gift of our salvation decay as we observe from the sidelines.
Join us Sunday as we look at the servant heart of Christ!
Have a great week!
Hey Kids! Ms. Heather has an exciting Bible story planned for you this Sunday! Can't wait to see you! 😊
Here is a fun activity for you to do! Have you ever heard of the Bible story about the Tower of Babel? You can find this story in your Bible, in Genesis 11:1-9. The people of the world decided to make a tower that reached all the way to the sky, to prove that they were bigger and better than God. But God will not be mocked by anyone, and He made them stop! You can pretend-act out this Bible story by building a tower with cups! You can use paper cups if you would like, or you can use plastic cups. You can use little tiny cups, or you can use big cups. Whatever cups you have (that your Mom approves of) you can use.😊 How tall can you make your Tower of Babel before it comes crashing down!?
