For the last two program years, we have been using a church-wide intergenerational curriculum that is incorporated into our Sunday morning worship services and our children, youth and adult education classes. The lessons and Biblical focus we learn and hear in worship will be the same lessons we learn in Sunday School, Youth Group and Adult Bible Study.
“Follow Me: Biblical Practices for Faithful Living is [designed to help] people of all ages follow Jesus. This study is for lifelong Christians and those beginning to ask questions. Each unit centers around something Jesus told his followers to do.” As we look at many of the practices that we will focus on, you may “notice many familiar words associated with the Christian faith and, to be honest, with just being a good person. Jesus, however, took these well-known behaviors, feelings, and attitudes and showed those around him—people throughout history and us today—how we can love God and love others. In each unit, aspects of the practice are explored; biblical stories illustrate them and how the Christian community has understood them through more than two thousand years. More important, there are ample opportunities for you to practice these actions, both individually and in community.”
We do things better as a community. In community we can lift each other up and encourage one another along our faith journeys. We support and pray for one another. When one of us stumbles, we can help steady a misstep, and pick each other up when we fall. Following Jesus is a commitment, a challenge, and a joy, the rewards of which will be seen in our strengthening relationships, our growing community, and the love that we share with all those around us.
Our next unit begins Sunday, September 10th. More details can be found here. If you have questions, please call the Church office at 989-686-1360.
