Series - Like a Child

Jesus’ saying in Matthew 18:3, “Unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven (NRSV),” is often mentioned in the Children’s Ministry to encourage everyone to welcome little children. Through his life and ministry, Jesus taught and showed what it means to be like a child and what it looks like to be like a child. This sermon series is based on children’s storybooks loved in various periods at different places. Intertwining with a well-known biblical passage, each storybook teaches us our Christian values and helps us to be “like a child” regardless of our age. Let us remember that God calls us God’s children.

  Like a Child:   Am  I Enough? – August 21, 2022

As the new school year starts for FCPS the next day, this sermon will focus on courage – that we all will need. Newness causes anxiety for everyone of all ages. The storybook “I Am Enough,” written by Grace Byers, and David’s story as a courageous shepherd boy teach us that we don’t look the same, but God has a purpose for each one of us beyond our imagination. This sermon will encourage us to courageously face our life and reality because we are enough.
