Call to start a new life
In Athens – the center of knowledge in the time of the apostles – Paul becomes very indignant at the sight of so many temples and idols (Acts 17). He is then called to account by the Greek philosophers. But in his response Paul calls them to account (verse 30): God commands all people everywhere to begin a new life. Next Sunday we’ll let this sink in: have you started yet?
Treasure Seekers – in person
This week the kids learn that Jesus’ death and resurrection makes it possible for people from anywhere in the world to be forgiven and safe in heaven with him. What a wonderful conclusion to God’s “mission”!
During the ICF Delft service, children leave for their own Bible teaching at Treasure Seekers part-way through the service, after the kids song, and rejoin for the final song of the service. The creche room is also available for 0-2 year olds. For those not attending ICFD in person, we’ll continue to send materials by email.
This week the kids’ Bible passage is Revelation 7:9-17. The Big Idea is that John shared a vision of heaven where people from every nation who trust in Jesus will be gathered around his throne, worshipping him. Here is a video (“for home use only”) putting the first verse of the story to song. See if your native language is included in the video!
The kids’ song is: As Far as East is from the West (So Great Is Jesus’ Love).
The memory verse is Psalm 67:1-2:
“May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine on us, so that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations.” [NIV]
