CORE for LYFE: Fruitful Living, Sharing God's Love
It is going to be a great Sunday! We celebrate fruitful living in all its forms. God
continually creates new opportunities for seeds of faith to take root and send out branches that bear fruit in our lives and in the world.
Here's a wonderful quote from John Wesley, Founder of the Methodist movement: "Never dream of forcing [other people] into the ways of God. Think yourself, and let think...Even those who are farthest out of the way never compel to come in by any other means than reason, truth, and love."
When was a time you were aware of God moving toward you in some spiritual way? When was a time you felt God moving you toward another person?
Bring a friend or relative to worship with you.
For the Children and the Adults in Their Lives:
Sunday is Bible Sunday, a special time when our 3-year olds, 3rd Graders, and 8th Graders each receive their new Bible. Reading the Bible can be a wonderful thing. The stories can help us think about our own lives and how we want to show the love of Jesus to other people. If you are receiving a Bible on Sunday, congratulations! If you already have one, what is it like? To everyone, what's your favorite Bible story? Do you know any by memory? See if you can tell your family one by just remembering!
