JESUS LOVES: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON JESUS
WEEK 3 BIG IDEA: JESUS WELCOMED STRANGERS

SERIES OVERVIEW:
“Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so.” If you grew up going to church, it’s probably the first song about Jesus you can remember singing. “Jesus loves me” may seem like a pretty straightforward and foundational belief, but let’s be honest . . . singing about Jesus’ love is a lot easier than actually imitating it. In this 4-week series, you’ll challenge students to observe, imitate, and be transformed by the radical love of Jesus for all people, but specifically His love for children, for the poor, for the stranger, and for the sinner.

Here’s a thought to challenge and encourage you this week: “Jesus never had a problem with people who had a lot of questions. He was concerned with the ones who thought they had all the answers.” — Maria Goff

At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
