June 29, 2015 | by: RAKlets | 0 comments

The Bible tells us that the greatest gift we could ever receive is salvation and eternal life with God. This summer in RAKlets we’re going to be talking about this gift from God and what it means to be saved through faith in Jesus alone.... Keep Reading

This we talked about sin. We read the story of the first sin from Genesis 3 and saw how the consequence of sin is death. We talked about how since Adam and Eve all people are born sinners and all choose our own way instead of God’s way.... Keep Reading

September 5, 2014 | by: RAKlets | 0 comments

This week we started out our new year together by seeing how the Bible is one big story about God rescuing His people. We saw that every story in the Bible tells us part of this story and points to Jesus being the only way any of us can ever be rescued.... Keep Reading

For the 2014-2015 school year, we'll be working through a study based on "The Jesus Storybook Bible" where every story whispers Jesus name. We strongly recommend that you get a copy of this book available at our book table and read it with your kids.... Keep Reading

Churches Celebrate the Lord’s Supper

July 5, 2013 | by: RAKlets | 0 comments

This Friday we’ve been focusing on the fact that the Lord’s Supper is a way to remember that Jesus died in our place. As we’ve gone through these other stories in the Bible, we’ve been reminded that the whole Bible points to one truth ~ people are separated from God because of sin and the only way we can be forgiven and brought back into relationship with God is by believing that Jesus died on the cross to pay the price for my sin....

Churches Baptize New Believers

June 28, 2013 | by: RAKlets | 0 comments

This week we looked at one of the symbols or reminders that God had given to the church to help us remember that Jesus died in our place. This symbol was baptism and we talked about how baptism is a picture of Jesus’ death and resurrection and how baptism is a way to show people that you believe in Jesus and are following Him.... Keep Reading

This week as we we talked about the importance of listening to God’s Word being taught. We read Paul’s instructions to Timothy about the importance of preaching the Word and decided that if it was important for the good news of Jesus to be taught and preached regularly, then it was important for us to listen when it is taught. ... Keep Reading

This week as we we talked about the church we learned that the church is under authority of the Bible. This means that the Bible is where we learn what we should do as a church. We learned that the Bible is God’s Word and that every word of the Bible is useful for teaching us how to live as God’s people.... Keep Reading

Churches Worship God

June 7, 2013 | by: RAKlets | 0 comments

This week we talked about one of the things that the church does. We talked about the truth that the church worships God. We defined worship as focussing 100% on who God is and what God is like. One of the things we learned is that in order to worship God we need to know about God, so we took some time searching the Bible for truths about God.... Keep Reading

The Church Proclaims the Gospel

May 31, 2013 | by: RAKlets | 0 comments

This week we talked about the most important thing that the church does and learned that the most important thing for Christians to do and the most important thing for the church to do, is to proclaim the gospel.... to tell people the good news that Jesus died to pay the price for sin. ... Keep Reading

This week we started our study of the church by asking the first of many questions...what is church? It might seem like a simple question, but we discovered that its a question a lot of people get wrong. We learned that church is God’s people in community and that the things that the first church did in Acts 2 are the same things that churches are called to do today.... Keep Reading

This week we listened in as Peter preached to the crowd gathered in Jerusalem for Pentecost. Because of the Holy Spirit, when Peter spoke, everyone there could hear and understand him in their own languages. Peter stood in front of this crowd and did just what the disciples had been called to do ~ He proclaimed the good news that Jesus had come to earth and died for their sin and that He rose again. Then, He told the people to repent of their sin and turn to Jesus.... Keep Reading

This week something that Jesus promised His disciples before He left to return to heaven came true. God sent the Holy Spirit to live with His people and give them power to go out and tell people about Jesus and how the only way to be saved is through Him. When the Holy Spirit came, the room was filled with wind and something that looked like flames were above each person’s head and they were filled with God. At that moment, men who were hiding and scared were suddenly bold enough to go outside and preach to thousands of people about who Jesus is and what He did when He died on the cross in our place.... Keep Reading

This week we found ourselves on a mountain with Jesus and His disciples and we heard Jesus tell them to ‘go and tell’ everyone, everywhere all about Jesus and then Jesus lifted up into the air and vanished into the clouds. After that some angels appeared to the disciples and told them that Jesus would come back some day just like He had gone.... Keep Reading

During the month of May we'll be focussing on the beginnings of the church and how the Good News of Jesus began to spread around the world. Our memory verse for this month is: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 ... Keep Reading

This week we saw the disciples hiding in a locked room scared and confused. Peter and John and the women had seen the empty tomb and Mary claimed to have seen Jesus, but they really didn’t understand what was going on. Then, with the doors locked, Jesus appeared in the room with them proving that He is alive now and forever. ... Keep Reading

This week we saw the first part of the greatest story you’ll ever hear as we witness through John 18-19 Jesus being arrested, tried, beaten and then put on a cross to die. We were reminded that His death was to pay the price for our sin. And, as Jesus took His last breath and said, “It is Finished!” we remembered that no one took Jesus’ life from Him, but that He laid down His life for His people and by dying in our place He finished the work He had come to do. Last week ended with Jesus in a tomb and the disciples scared and confused.....but that was just the beginning of the story!... Keep Reading

Plugged In - Preparing for Easter

March 22, 2013 | by: RAKlets | 0 comments

In our passage in John 15 today we saw that Christians need to stay connected to Jesus. Our memory verse for the month helps us to understand why. Being connected to Jesus and in a relationship with God through Him is the only way to have life. If you are a follower of Jesus….if you have turned away from the sin in your life and turned to Jesus….you need to stay connected to Him to have life, just like the branches needs to stay connected to the vine in order to live.... Keep Reading

This week & next we’ll be working through the book “The 1st Easter” to help us prepare for Easter. Make a mural/ timeline of the last week before Jesus died and came back to life, adding to it each day. The easiest way to do this might be to add a piece of paper each day! If you’re feeling really creative, consider getting some clay and making a 3D scene of each day.... Keep Reading
