While our physical gatherings being temporarily suspended, our leadership’s prayer is that our Church would continue to be the Church: Worshiping God in Spirit and in Truth, Sharing the good news of Jesus with our neighbors, and Being salt and light for the world around us.

We want to serve you is by providing materials that can be used on Sundays for you to worship at home!

We’ve included a link below to the liturgy hand out, and this week we’ve compiled the full service on a video that premieres at 11am on YouTube and Facebook. Choose a platform and worship with us!

SCRIPTURE READING & SERMON

MATTHEW 6:25-34

Do Not Be Anxious

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 

Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? 

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 

Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. 

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

This week’s story is about Zechariah’s eight visions from God (from the book of Zechariah). As a parent, you can read some context for the Bible story before you join your child in studying God’s word. 

We have provided you resources to help you foster a study of God’s word with your child in the absence of our Sunday gatherings. We recommend that you read the story, sing a few songs and pray together. If you have time, play the Bible story as a review, print and complete the activity page or do the activity as a family together. 

You can refer to our Apostles Kids Spotify Playlist or YouTube Playlist for songs to sing together as a family. The songs listed are songs we sing together on Sundays in Apostles Kids. 

ELEMENTARY RESOURCES

Questions to follow up with your child:

  • What happened in the story today?
  • What things were confusing to you in the story?
  • A vision is like a dream, except you’re awake. Have you ever had a dream that you didn’t understand? 
  • God speaks to us today primarily through his Word, the Bible. When have you felt like God speaking to you through something you learned in Scripture?
