Jesus' baptism

SUNDAY IS COMING & KIDS IS BACK ON
BridgeKIDS and babes&tots is starting again this Sunday morning and we’ll be signing in children at 10:00am in the big space just past the gym entrance so hopefully it’s a nice and quick drop off for you and them. Babes&tots will sign in inside their room as usual.

GENEROUS GIVING
Rio, the puppy, will be ready to eat money this weekend. You’ll find him on the sign in table. The money that we collect goes towards our sponsorship of Miguel, from Mexico, through Compassion.
Thank you for helping us to send money to help Miguel. We’ll be taking a group photo to send to him this Sunday.

TO READ TOGETHER
Mark 1:4-11
John was out in the wilderness telling people to take God seriously and change what needed changing in their lives. He baptized them in the Jordan River but he told them that was nothing to what Jesus would do when He came. And then He came… read what happened at the River that day.

TO LEARN TOGETHER
Because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.” Galatians 4:6

TO DO TOGETHER
Make a collage of family pictures or a drawing of everyone in your family and give it the title. ‘God’s Beloved Children’ talk about the ways each person is special and why you like them. 


SO I’M WONDERING…
QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR KIDS (AND YOURSELF)
How do you think Jesus felt when He was baptized?
What kinds of people do you think came to be baptized by John? Was it rich people? Was it poor people? Was it both?

FAMILY PRAYER
Dear God,
Thank you that we are Your children and that You love us. Help us to remember that just like You said You were pleased with Jesus You are also very pleased with us. Amen.
