There are Charizards Everywhere - Everything You Need for Sunday
Hi Everyone! This Sunday, we dive back into the parable of The Sower, to look at how Jesus uses farming to have us consider the states of our hearts. This parable always made me feel somewhat anxious. I was only the good soil if I was multiplying the Kingdom. It brings back memories of being a missionary and quite literally and anxiously crashing people’s dinners at a restaurant to share the gospel with them (which didn’t go well as you can imagine). I wanted so badly to be the good soil! But, as I take a second look at this parable, I realize this is Jesus telling us about how many things in this life can cause us not to receive the goodness of God. Jesus is showing us how this posture of the heart leads to us receiving every good gift God gives us, and from there this joy of receiving becomes contagious - not anxious. We come to realize there are Charizards everywhere! ;)

In-person Sunday School!
We have in-person Sunday School for kids aged 4-12 with our amazing teacher, Alissa! Sunday School will be held after our worship time.
This Sunday, the kids will be wrapping up the first few books of the Bible and the story of the patriarchs. Last week, we talked about how the Israelites wandered the desert for many years, and this week they will finally enter the land! The last thing that happens in the wilderness is the story of the 12 spies who sneak into the land to scout it out. We’ll be talking about what those spies did, how only two of them trusted God, and the eventual settlement of the tribes all over the land. This is a great story of God extending His promise once more that He would protect the Israelites, and of them trusting Him to do so.
If you have any questions, or if there is any way that Alissa can support your family in discipling your children at home, please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
That's all you need to know for this Sunday. May God richly bless you as you worship together this Sunday!
