Tween Time This Sunday at 9 am

Tween time is for students in the fifth through eighth grades. We meet in the Youth Room at 9:00. Students are dismissed in time to join their families for the 10:00 worship service.

This week our game will be Spring Cleaning. How fast are you at getting your things sorted and out away? We’ll find out Sunday!

We will review the events that took place during Holy Week. After the review there will be a Tween choice between two Holy Week activities. The hidden picture stories that you have been doing during Lent should help jog your memory.

Events teach. Often the learning comes after the event. Jesus teaches with elements that have immediate impact as well as lingering meaning. And they usually land well outside the expected. So, with Passover looming, Jesus goes into the busy temple and proceeds to clean house. “Take these things out of here!” he demands of the money changers, the animal merchants – even those who sold doves. Then he announces: “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” A temple that took 46 years to build? Could he mean the temple God has been building since the beginning of time? What “things” need to be removed from our own personal temples?

I will look for you Sunday!
