Your Life Depends On It!

Your Life Depends on It

by Tom Porter

Don’t just read the Bible the way you read newspapers, magazines, comics or menus. The Bible should be studied.

Acquire a Study Bible with study notes and commentaries that bring clarity, relevance of key points, and meaning to the text. These notes will explain important words and  concepts, draw parallels between people and events, and demonstrate how one passage sheds light on another.

Rambling From a Lifetime Disciple

RAMBLING FROM A LIFETIME DISCIPLE

When you have been in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) all your life and you are in your golden years, sometimes it is hard to remember what happened so long ago and sometimes, it seems like it was only yesterday. Then again, I may not remember what happened yesterday.

More about Worship & Wonder:

What Exactly is Worship &Wonder (W&W)?

Worship Wonder 2

W&W is a service of worship with a centered approach with worship elements of praying, singing, storytelling and fellowship that is used to help children deepen their relationship with God.

To begin, the children come into a special worship space, to a storyteller waiting to greet them. They sit in a circle, surrounded by Bible stories made just for them, with all materials at their height. Everything in this special place is accessible to the children. The story-teller leads the children in a time of singing and praise. This coming together of the children follows the first order of worship which is the gathering of God’s people.

Next they will hear one of God’s stories in a story telling format told with multi-sensory materials that children of different ages and with different learning styles can enter into and enjoy. As the story is finished the children are invited to share in a time of wonder about the story. They are asked “wondering questions” to help them dive deeper into the meaning of the story and to listen for God’s still voice that is found there. These questions might sound like, “I wonder if the Good Shepherd’s sheep have names?” Or, ” I wonder what it was like to be in the ark for forty days… I wonder if Noah knew that God was with him?” These wondering questions ask the children how they are part of the story and how they are a part of the bigger Christian story. They begin to see that the stories in the Bible are their stories too.

Third, just as in “big” worship the children will respond to God’s story. In “big” worship we often respond through prayer, song, offering, celebrating the Lord’s Supper, commissioning, and celebrating baptisms. The children have the chance to respond to the Word in a myriad of ways as well. Some of these ways include using the story materials to tell the story they just heard, a story they heard on a previous Sunday and their own story. They may also choose to work with art and craft materials, or build with materials such as play-doh. These response materials are there to help them express their relationship with God. After they respond in a way they choose, the children come back to the circle. Here the storyteller lights the Christ candle and shows the children where the story they heard is found in the Bible. Then as a community they pray together and share in a feast.

The children will participate in the last order of worship which is the sending out of God’s people into the world. Each child will be given a special blessing by the storyteller as they leave to be God’s disciples in their homes, schools, and activities. Parents will pick their child/children up at our special worship space in the children’s building. We ask parents to wait outside the worship space as we may still be in worship. When we are finished the children are called by name to join their parent to leave.

If your child is 3 years through 2nd grade and wishes to join us for W&W, please come with them to the back of the church so that we may get their name and your contact information.
