Sunday 2nd October 2022
In this Sunday School Steve will explore the meaning of Faith, through:
- Lesson – Luke 17:5-10 : Learning how a small amount of faith in Jesus can achieve spectacular things
- Activity : Planting bulbs to remind us how faith can grow from a small beginning
Lesson – Luke 17:5-10
5 The apostles said to the Lord, ‘Increase our faith!’
6 He replied, ‘If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, “Be uprooted and planted in the sea,” and it will obey you.
7 ‘Suppose one of you has a servant ploughing or looking after the sheep. Will he say to the servant when he comes in from the field, “Come along now and sit down to eat”? 8 Won’t he rather say, “Prepare my supper, get yourself ready and wait on me while I eat and drink; after that you may eat and drink”? 9 Will he thank the servant because he did what he was told to do? 10 So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, “We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.”’
The lesson will explore how even a small amount of faith in Jesus can achieve spectacular things.
As an analogy Steve will perform an experiment where he will:
- Put baking powder in water, showing how if we put faith (the baking powder) into the wrong thing (water), nothing happens.
- Put baking powder in vinegar, showing how if we put faith (baking powder) into Jesus (vinegar), something spectacular happens.
After the lesson we will plant flower bulbs in pots, which can be taken home to remind us how a little faith in Jesus can grow, like a bulb can grow into a beautiful flower.
