What really makes a superhero? Our theme this year is “God is Greater” and we started off the year with our Rally Sunday event on September 13th talking about superheroes. The kids sure named a lot of them from the movies, TV, and comics. We played Superhero Bingo and the younger students had superhero training and earned their superhero masks. We spoke about how Jesus is the ultimate superhero and here are 20 reasons why: 1) Jesus has never made a mistake. 2) Jesus is fearless. 3) Jesus never displayed anger in a negative way. 4) Jesus has no kryptonite; nothing that could make His powers weaken or sicken Him. 5) Jesus has powerful words. 6) Jesus overcomes evil. 7) Jesus is humble. 8) Jesus is all knowing. 9) Jesus didn’t wear a mask and has always been open and honest about who He was. 10) Jesus was never in true danger. He was always in control of the timing of everything including His death. 11) Jesus connected with people. 12) Jesus is both God and man. 13) Jesus died to save all people, even His enemies. 14) Jesus never sinned. 15) Jesus controlled the elements; He calmed the storm. 16) Jesus has authority over heaven and earth. 17) Jesus didn’t need technology, just the power of the Lord, to save the world. 18) Jesus walked on water and performed many other miracles. 19) Jesus never needed weapons, but instead, solved problems with peace. 20) Jesus defeated death and gives us eternal life in heaven. Now that’s superpower! No fictional character will ever be able to replace the world’s one true superhero – Jesus.
We welcome all students, age 3 on up, to join us Sunday mornings from 10:15-11 in the sanctuary for songs, Bible lessons, activities, and prayers. Children ages 3 through Kindergarten must have a parent or older sibling attend with them.
