We are continuing our unit on what the church is. During this unit, we will be talking about how the church is all Christians everywhere, who gather together in their communities to worship and serve God. The question for this unit is, “What is the church? The church is all Christians everywhere, who gather together in their communities to worship and serve God.”  Our memory verse for this unit is 1 Corinthians 12:12 (NIV), “Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.” Try memorizing the verse as a family. (Preschoolers will memorize the bolded portion.)

This week, we will be in Acts 11 as we learn about Gentile believers being accepted into the Church. We will see that “even though some people tried to stop it, the gospel spread throughout the earth—not only to Jews but also to Gentiles. The good news about Jesus is for everyone. God calls us to celebrate when others believe and help them know and love Jesus more.”
