Week of May 26, 2024

Today: Holy Trinity Sunday Isaiah 6:1-8; Acts 2:14a,22-36; John 3:12-17 • What makes our God distinctive? Is it that He has revealed to us that He is Triune (One-in-Three), Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—or could it be that He has revealed Himself to us at all?!? Is it the personal nature of our God? We have been created by God, and He has revealed that He is our Heavenly Father; He has sent His Son, Jesus, personally for us, so that we would have a personal relationship with Him; and the Spirit ignites faith within us and sets us apart for God’s purposes. What else is distinctive—that He is gracious? That He loves all people? Jesus came for all and went to the cross for all! Yes, all these things—and more—make our God distinctive, and He has made us to be His people.

The music, games, skits, science experiments, snacks and more all point to Jesus. It is fun, action packed, and we would love to see your child there!
