Tonight we are going to spend some time singing and then talk about what we have planned for the summer including our Mexico Mission Trip. Parents and adults invited to come.
We are starting a new series called “Bible 101” and it is about some of the Great Themes of Scripture. Although I call it Bible 101 it is anything but basic. Every year we are going to look at a few different themes that are prevalent throughout Scripture. I believe this will help us to see how the Bible is a unified whole and when we understand some of the Big Themes of Scriptures it helps make the whole thing make sense.
This week we are looking at Covenants. The whole story of Scripture is carried along by covenants, this is the engine that drives the narrative of Scripture. One of the major themes of Scripture is “God seeking a relationship with his people through covenant.” Here is a great video we are using as our launching point < https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ferLIsvlmI&t>
Questions you can ask:
– Why is God having a covenant with us so important?
(Covenants are not arbitrary, and God will stick to his word)
– Why is it so important we keep our own promises we make?
(We have to be able to keep promises we make to people we can see, it helps us to get in the habit of keeping promises to God who we can not see.)
