March on the Rooftop Week 1

Sin broke our relationship with God beyond repair, until He sent his only Son who paid for our sin with his blood.  Jesus made it possible for to experience God’s forgiveness and have a restored relationship with him.  We have been forgiven, therefore we must forgive in return.  Forgiveness is deciding that someone who has…

We are finishing the month talking about the story of the good Samaritan.  When faced with the decision to ignore an enemy or have compassion, the Samaritan set aside his differences and showed love.

February on the Rooftop Week 3

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…
