CE: Come listen to and learn from Jesus’ parables.

On the first Sunday of each month the children and youth participate in a sandwich-making mission for the hungry.

In the weeks following we will walk through parables in the Bible. There are many parables from Jesus in the books of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. In church school we will learn how these parables describe ordinary circumstances that can be applied to our times. These timeless moral lessons can teach us how to live as faithful Christians, just as God intended.

Here is our schedule for October 2023.

  • Sunday, October 1, 10:00 a.m., We will gather in the kitchen to make sandwiches for our neighbors at Community Day Center of Waltham.
  • Sunday, October 8, 10:00 a.m., Come learn what Jesus meant when he said, “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again: It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.” (Matthew 5:13)
  • Sunday, October 15, 10:00 a.m., In Matthew, Mark, and Luke, we learn to be a “light of the world,” just as Jesus is. Christ, as the Light of the World, is our source of the light, and our “lights” should reflect Him every day.
  • Sunday, October 22, 10:00 a.m., In both Matthew and Luke, Jesus tells a story about two people who were going to build some houses. One was a wise builder, and one was a foolish builder. Does it matter if a builder is wise or not?  Which one would Jesus want us to be?
  • Sunday, October 29, 10:00 a.m., Have you ever heard of the Pumpkin Patch Parable? Come hear an alternative message this autumn, something wholesome, positive, and encouraging. Since God himself created pumpkins, it seems appropriate to redeem this familiar symbol of the harvest season for God’s good purpose.
