God’s promises are overflowing.

Come and find out more about the many ways God is faithful to you and to all people!

One of the most wonderful parts about God is that God takes sad and bad things and turns them into something wonderful. This story tells us something sad, but as always, God turns it into something amazing! Even though Jesus was kind and loving to all people, some people did not like Jesus and wanted Him to die. One Friday, they took Jesus to a place called Golgotha and they put Him on a cross. At noon, the sky turned dark and stayed that way until three o’clock. At that time, Jesus cried out, “Father, I put myself in your hands.” Then he died. A crowd of Jesus’ friends watched from far away. After they had seen the terrible sight, their hearts were very sad. They went home. Later, some women went to the tomb where Jesus’ body had been laid. They found out Jesus had risen! Jesus was alive! Jesus’ death on the cross saved us from our sins (the wrong things we do) and we can be with God forever and ever! Matthew 26:36-68; Matthew 27:57-65

Practice your memory verse. You can find it in Hebrews 10:23 or right here in your GPS. What did Jesus use to feed people?

Help prepare a very simple meal of bread and meat. Offer a small amount to everyone at the table. Discuss what is might have been like to be at the feeding of the 5000. How is the meal you are eating now similar to or different from that meal long ago?

Thank God for all the different foods you have eaten this past week. Now imagine someone who is hungry and hasn’t eaten food for two or three days. How could you provide food for a person or family in need? How can you share what you have with others?

Write each number you find within the Bible story (Matthew 15:29-39) on a separate slip of paper. Put the slips of paper in a bowl. Take turns pulling out a slip of paper, reading the number and telling which part of the story it comes from.

“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23
