The Bumbershoot
The purpose of children's ministry at TPC is to give specific thought and attention to the way children grow in their understanding of Christ's Kingdom and what membership in that Kingdom entails.

So what does Christ's death and Resurrection do for me?  Have you ever asked this question or at least wondered about it?  When Jesus appeared to the disciples in Luke 24, they were terrified.  They thought they were seeing a spirit. But Jesus showed them his flesh and reminded that that spirits don't have bones. They had a hard time believing what they were seeing was possible because they knew the punishment for sin was death and, death was final! But here's what Jesus wanted them to understand: because he was the only human never ever to sin, he had a body that was stronger than death. Death is only stronger than sinful flesh. Even though death had attacked him and taken him to the grave, it could not hold him in - not his spirit OR his body!

Jesus wanted the disciples (and us) to believe that He had more power over our bodies even than death does. Do YOU believe this? How do you know if you believe it?  What things that come out of your body belong to death? Mean words or thoughts, ugly looks, disobedience, selfishness... Do you believe that Jesus has the power to help you stop those things? When you realize these types of things are coming out of you, ask Jesus, who had power to get his whole body and spirit up from underneath death, to give you his power to stop the things that belong to death and replace them with the things that belong to his kingdom of love, kindness and joy! This is exactly what His Resurrection does for us. In it,He gives all who believe him, his power over death and all the things that belongs to it!


Please continue to pray and make cards for Adam and Nora Smith and their baby.  Bring cards to church with you and we will send them all together or email to get the address if you would like to send your own.

Children's Questions or prayer requests can be placed in the box on the Children's Table.

Lots of delicious desserts will be auctioned off this Sunday evening. Don't miss the fun!
