The Body of Christ Lesson

Today in Children's Ministries
we are taking a look at part of the Epistle reading, Romans 12:4-8

"Each of us has one body with many parts. And the parts do not all have the same purpose. So also we are many persons. But in Christ we are one body. And each part of the body belongs to all the other parts.

We all have gifts. They differ in keeping with the grace that God has given each of us. Do you have the gift of prophecy? Then use it in keeping with the faith you have. Is it your gift to serve? Then serve. Is it teaching? Then teach. Is it telling others how they should live? Then tell them. Is it giving to those who are in need? Then give freely. Is it being a leader? Then work hard at it. Is it showing mercy? Then do it cheerfully."

The Body of Christ includes Christians everywhere, but we are looking specifically at our roles in the Body of Christ at Christ Church. Christ Church Kids are full-fledged members of the body, not junior members because of their age. I am looking forward to hearing from them what part of the body they want to be!
