Sunday School
Welcome to Sunday School! 

In this time where nothing is certain but God's love for us, we are glad you are here! 

We'll have some devotion ideas, reflections, activities and even recipes from time to time to help you dive into God's word a little deeper and have a little fun with it at the same time.

When asked the question, who are you, or tell me about yourself, what do you say? What is your identity? Who do you see yourself to be? When we look at our identities in the context of the world, we often feel like we don’t measure up, or we compare ourselves to others—just as the disciples did in our Gospel lesson today. Once again, Jesus turns the world upside down. Our identity is in him, our high priest, the one who intercedes for us and the one who gives each and every one of us our value as a child of God. Our refuge and strength is in Him. We do not need to please the world, our actions should be in responding back to the One who gives us life and loves us unconditionally. Our response to live life to its fullest is to aspire to be like Christ serving all, because truly we are all equal in Him with no one person more important or more valuable than another. “To be first among you, you must be slave of all.”

How was your day?  Take a few minutes and share with someone.  It can be someone in your home or you could call a friend or reach out to a relative.  Share what went right, what went wrong, and what just went a little weirder than expected.   (Then be sure you take the time to listen!  )   
James and John
from the Spark Story Bible p336

Jesus and his disciples walked along a dusty road.  James and John had something to ask Jesus.   They ran to catch up with him.  Out of breath, they said, "Hey, Jesus?  Could you slow down a minute?"  
Jesus stopped.  "What can I do for you?" 
The brothers asked, "We want to ask a favor.   We were wondering if maybe, in heaven, we could sit next to you - one on the right side and one on the left!" 
Jesus looked at them and said, "You are good friends, but every person has a special place in heaven!  No one gets a place that's more special than anyone else's."
Jesus called the disciples together.  He told them the best way to serve him was to serve others.  He helped them understand that he had come to help people and wanted them to do the same.

Cool If you could ask Jesus any question, what would you ask him?
