Humility

April 30 on the Rooftop

On Sunday, we spent some time with our monthly memory verse, Philippians 2:3.  “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.  Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.”  We gave the kids the opportunity to make some choices when given scenarios where they could either put themselves or others first.  They did a great…

This week, we had a fun time recreating the story of Jesus feeding the 5000, one of his most amazing miracles.  Jesus was speaking to thousands of people when it became dinnertime.  Instead of sending them all away to fend for themselves, he turned five loaves of bread and two fish into a meal for…
