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.

Yesterday, we heard a story about a woman who was sick and believed that if she could just touch Jesus' clothes, she would be healed. But we also heard something that might surprise us: Jesus didn't come just to make people's lives a little better. Jesus came to make us his friends.  The woman in the story thought what she needed most was to be healed from her disease. But Jesus knew that what she needed even more than that, was to know that the one who could heal her was also her friend and loved her greatly. So, even though the woman tried to simply get Jesus' healing and slip quietly away without disturbing him, Jesus stopped. He stopped everything - even his very important work of going to heal a dying young girl - in order to let this woman know that he was not just her healer, but her friend and Lord. It was only in knowing that Jesus was her friend, that she was able then to live in a way that told others of the great power of her Lord so that they could find healing also. Give thanks to God that he came to heal you from the power of sin but also that in healing you, he has made you his friend.  As friends of Jesus, we now get to spend our lives telling others all that the Lord has done for us!


1. Did Jesus become less powerful when the woman touched him?

No. He shared his power. But in order to share his power, he had to become weak by becoming a human.

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