Hello Friends, Do you remember what we talked about last week? Let me give you some hints: there was a tool box, some tools, a Bible, and a flashlight….That’s right! We talked about how God provides us with the right tools so that we can let His light shine. And this light is not just for us, but it is a light that is meant for everyone. Well today, we are going to talk about something that might cause our light to go out. You might be thinking Satan. But there is......

Hello Friends! I was thinking the other day about what Jesus said to his disciples many years ago. After telling the disciples about all the people who deserve to be blessed–to be given the gift of happiness–Jesus, in Matthew 5:14, says this, “You are the light of the world….” And then I thought about some of the tools that I have in my tool box. Do you have tools that you use to help your parents or siblings out? In my toolbox, I have a hammer that helps build things, a level......

Hello Friends! With Halloween approaching fast, I’m sure we are all excited to dress up in our costumes and eat all the candy we can get! What are you dressing up as for Halloween?

That does sound pretty scary. But I am thinking of going as God’s pumpkin….the God-o-lantern! In order to......

Have many of you have gotten in trouble for not sharing your toys or for taking toys from someone else? How many of you have gotten in trouble for doing something that your parents told you not to do? While growing up, I have seen a lot of people get in trouble. I saw Jonah get in trouble by God......

On Sunday, we came together at Jesus’ table to share a meal. This was no fancy meal: there weren’t any mashed potatoes or salads or casseroles or sandwiches or even desserts. However, this was an important meal. As a matter of fact, this meal is what we call in the church “The Lord’s Supper” or “Holy Communion.” And what made it even more important, was the notion that as a Church–throughout the world–we had this meal together. During this meal, we gathered at the table–which has a spot for you and me–and......

A rejoicing message for the kids Psalm 118:24 – Today is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Today is Sunday. Today I am going to church. Today I am glad!!!! I’m glad because I will get to praise God in my church building…something I haven’t been able to do in a long time…10 weeks!! Now, I will admit…I have not really hated being able to sleep in on some of those Sundays that I couldn’t go to church. And watching sermons where I could pause the video......
