Two Quick Things before the weekend:
Thing One — We will announce the winners of the October Attendance Challenge during the Children’s Moment at the 11:00 am Sanctuary service.
Thing Two — This month we explore another all-time favorite story — Jonah.
See below for those of you who like to play along at home.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Bible Story: Jonah
Like so many before him, Jonah is a reluctant prophet.
He eventually does what God tells him to do, but not before learning the hard way that you can’t outrun God.
Memory Verse: Ephesians 4:32 — Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you.
Themes: Jonah is a story about do-overs, second chances. It’s about forgiveness — both giving and receiving.
At the end of the Jonah story, we see that Jonah continues to struggle with the concept of forgiving others. (Don’t we all?)
