Kids Corner – Forgiven Again

How come we keep doing bad things even after we ask for God’s forgiveness?  That’s what Ashley is wondering after last week’s chat at Mr. J’s, and this time, Miss Fiona has a drama prepared for the kids about God’s grace.  (Scripture: Romans 7; Ephesians 1:13; John 15:6; 1st Corinthians 10:12; James 5:19-20; Hebrews 10:26; 2nd Peter 2; John 10:27; Titus 3:5; Philippians 1:6; Philippians 2:12; Hebrews 12:1; James 4:8; Romans 6:15)

Kids Corner – Loss

After Everett loses something he really cared about, he and Bailey try to understand why God let’s us lose things – or people – that are important to us.  Mr. Jacobs and Miss Fiona share what the Bible has to say, including a serious drama from the Bible about loss, death, and hope. (Scripture: Galatians 6:2; John 11:1-44; Revelation 21:4; 2nd Samuel 12:13; 1st Corinthians 11:30)

Kids Corner – Perfection

Mr. Jacobs is working on some computer programming, and if he gets just one letter of code wrong, he’ll lose the whole program!  It’s a job that calls for nothing less than perfection.  How is – and how isn’t – that like the Christian life?  Is it possible to live perfectly?  Get out your Bibles and follow along for the adventure!  (Scripture: James 3:2; Matthew 5:48; Philippians 4:13; Proverbs 3:5,6; Matthew 11:29,30; James 4:6; 1st Peter 5:6; Philippians 1:6)

Kids Corner – Passing the Peace

What do you do when people around you are fighting?  Do you break it up?  Do you try to find out who might be right?  This is what Kyle’s asking about two bickering girls in a new club he’s joined.  Mr. Jacobs talks about how we can help spread peace!  (Scripture: Romans 12:18; Matthew 5:9; Proverbs 26:17; Titus 3:9; 2nd Timothy 2; James 1:20; Psalm 82:3; Matthew 25; Colossians 3:16)

Kids Corner – What are Blessings For?

“Blessing” might sound like a churchy word, but what does it really mean?  Why does God put good things – and bad things – in our lives?  Hear Mr. Jacobs and the kids talk about it in the Garage – and have some imaginary adventures along the way! (Scripture: John 12:24; 1st Peter 2:21; James 1; Hebrews 4:15)

Kids Corner – Learning to Listen

[Originally aired 8-17-2019]  Kyle’s got a new gadget, but it doesn’t seem to be working as advertised.  Maybe taking Sam’s advice to actually read the instructions would help?  Mr. Jacobs chimes in on the importance of listening well! (Scripture: James 1:19; Proverbs 18:13; Proverbs 2)

Kids Corner – Doing What the Bible Says Now

The kids are stuck without a lot to do – unless you count complaining… With so many groups not getting together, how do you do what the Bible says: love others, serve with others, and stuff like that?  Mr. Jacobs puts in his two cents!  (Scripture: Philippians 2, Galatians 5)

Kids Corner – Persecution

It’s good to be back together! – even if it means wearing masks for now.  Sam would be more glad, though, if she could go to church, too!  The delivery service is making her work on Sunday mornings, and she thinks they’re doing it just because she’s a Christian.  Is it a case of religious persecution?  What even is persecution?  Mr. Jacobs enlightens.  (Scripture: John 15:21; Matthew 10:28; 1st Peter 3; Romans 8; Proverbs 25:22)
