This Sunday we’ll read the story of Jesus and Peter walking on water. What do you make of this story? Have you ever tried to walk on water? I tried when I was a kid and did a few face plants into the pool. You know what I would rather have than the ability to walk on water? I’d like to do what Jesus is calling me to do without overwhelming fear. Fear is one of the biggest obstacles when trying to follow Jesus. It’s scary to step out of the safety of the boat and follow Jesus into the unknown. What do we do with our fear? Let’s talk about it on Sunday!

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 morning in Sunday school we will be talking about the story of Jesus walking on water! This story has a lot of similarities to Jesus calming the storm which we talked about last week- this story also involves a storm out at sea and the need to trust Jesus. The biggest difference in this story though is Peter! Peter decides to trust Jesus so much that he’s willing to step out of the boat and walk across the water to Jesus. We often look at this story and see Peter’s failure to stay afloat without Jesus, but what is so powerful is that at least he tried! What I hope to impress upon our kids this week is that our mere effort to be close to Jesus and to follow Him is what matters, and our effort is what we will be rewarded for.
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 email@example.com.
We will be participating in communion this Sunday. For those of you joining us online, please prepare any elements in advance of the service so you are prepared to join in when we commune with God.
That's all you need to know for this Sunday. May God richly bless you as we worship together this Sunday!
