Summer Sermon Series: Children of the Bible and What They Can Teach Us Today


As the old proverb goes, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6, KJV). But the reality is we also have a lot to learn from children. Throughout scripture, children provide examples of courage (think of David and Goliath), resourcefulness (Miriam approaches Pharaoh’s daughter about helping raise him), generosity (the boy with five loaves and two fish gives up his lunch to feed the 5,000), and many other examples for us today. So this summer, we will take a look at some children of the Bible and what they can teach us today.  (You'll also hear a couple guest preachers for a couple of these Sundays as well!)

July 1: “The Little Girl who Woke Up” (Mark 5:21-43)
Theme: Resurrection and new life

July 8: “Samuel the Listener” (1 Samuel 3:1-18)
Theme: Listening and responding to God’s call.  This week, youth who attended the National Gathering will share some reflections from their time in Houston.

July 15: “The Boy who was Wise” (Luke 2:41-51)
Theme: The Importance of children in God’s house

July 22: “The Girl who Loved Her Enemy” (2 Kings 5:1-14)
Theme: Faith in the care and healing of God

July 29: “The Boy who was Generous” (John 6:1-14)
Theme: Giving what you have for ministry among God’s people

August 5: “Miriam the Resourceful” (Exodus 2:1-10)
Theme: Children as instruments of God’s grace

August 12: “Isaac the Questioner” (Genesis 22:1-19)
Theme: Honoring the questions of our children

Vacation Bible School at Holy Spirit will be August 13-17.  Like last year, members from St. Christopher's Episcopal will be joining us, but all children are welcome, so invite friends, family and anyone with children to join us for dinner beginning at 5:15 pm with VBS starting at 5:45 pm.  And if you would like to help out, we can always use volunteers!
