All 4 One is our monthly service when the adults, youth, and children explore the same scripture passage in the church school and the sanctuary. Parents, grandparents, guardians, and people of influence in the lives of children and youth are encouraged to share their thoughts and inspiration. Listed below are the monthly conversation starters to try at home.
February 28th, 2021 – Knowing the Bible Helps You Know Jesus. Click here for the YouTube Video.
In church school, we wrapped up our series titled “More Than the Red Letters.” The goal each week has been to help youth discover connections between the Old Testament and the New Testament.
In our final lesson, we explored Acts 8:26-38, where God led a follower of Jesus named Philip to share the truth and understanding of a Scripture passage with an Ethiopian leader. The man was reading words from the book of Isaiah but didn’t understand what it all meant. Because Philip had knowledge of the Scripture, he was able to help the Ethiopian leader and point him to Jesus.
This week, I encourage you to reflect on what you heard in the service and spend a few minutes talking with your youth about our lesson. Consider fueling your conversation with these questions:
- What’s one thing that has confused you or frustrated you about the Bible?
- Why is it important to know what Jesus really said and did—and not just rely on what other people tell you, or what you think you heard a long time ago?
- What’s one way the Bible—either the Old Testament or New Testament—has helped you understand God better in your everyday life?
