In Cornerstone's Children's Ministry we want children to have fun and make friends, but effectively sharing God's Word with your child is our highest priority. Currently, we are in a series that takes your child through the Bible in one year. To view the entire scope and sequence follow this link, but to see what your child is learning this month, consider the information below. Let us know if you have any questions, as we are committed to partnering with parents in the discipleship of their children. Enjoy!
Learning Target: I know Jesus came for everyone.
Jesus asks a tax collector named Matthew to be his disciple. Tax collectors were known for being greedy, cheating men. So when Jesus went to Matthew’s house, religious leaders got mad. But Jesus came for everyone—and those who are the worst sinners need him the most.
Learning Target: I know that Jesus is God.
In this lesson we learned that Jesus goes to a pool where sick people often hang out hoping to be healed by the power of the bubbling water in the pool. One lame man is never able to get there soon enough, so Jesus heals him. The religious leaders get mad, but Jesus is God, and he tells them so.
Learning Target: I know that Jesus has authority over everything.
A Roman officer asks Jesus to heal his dying servant. He recognizes that Jesus has authority over everything and compares it to his limited authority over his soldiers. He knows Jesus has so much authority that he can just speak and heal the man without having to travel to him.
Learning Target: I know that Jesus is the Messiah.
John the Baptist previously announced that Jesus was the Messiah, or rescuer. But now, John is sitting in prison and wondering if Jesus really is the Messiah. He sends some friends to ask Jesus, and Jesus says they can tell John that Jesus is the Messiah because of all his miracles.
