The Parable of The Rich Farmer
Children are always comparing their own “stuff” to that of their friends and peers. It is easy for them to focus on having the next, coolest, trendiest new thing rather than spending their time, effort and money pursuing what lasts.
This week’s lesson will help children see that things they may acquire here on earth don’t last, but a relationship with God is eternal! The hardworking and responsible farmer who amassed wealth did not appear to have such a relationship.
Remember: A parable is
an earthly story with a heavenly meaning.

Online VBS with Crosspoint Christian Church in Yonkers, New York
Ninety-Five (95!!!) children from Crosspoint Christian Church, MC3 Church and children from other parts of New York, Philadelphia, India and Dubai participated in last week's online Vacation Bible School. It was overwhelming!
What an honor, privilege and joy to teach God’s Holy Word to little preschoolers! It was also w i l d, in that class! I do know, however, that those little ones learn differently than I do (thank goodness!) and that they did learn more than I thought!
My heartfelt thanks to Keri Duncan, SOAR Ministries, Wendy Duncan and Melinda Wilson for inviting us to participate. We will always be grateful for Crosspoint. Our team in New York was wonderful!
We had special guests, Mrs. Joanie Grimm and Rajan Ipe, speak to us. It was amazing!
was the only child from MC3, who had perfect attendance, learned all her Scripture Memory verses, and Bible Points. We are so very proud of her! An anonymous someone donated a gift for her!
What a joy!
Angel Whispers ...
A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin, 5 and Ryan 3. The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake. Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson. "If Jesus were sitting here, He would say, 'Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.'" Kevin turned to his younger brother and said, "Ryan, you be Jesus!"
Definitely Keri Duncan, for orchestrating the online Zoom VBS!
