Epaphroditus

This Sunday we start a new series ‘Followers of Jesus’
Bible passage: Philipians 2: 25-30
Session aim: To experience God’s loving care

The first person we meet is Epaphroditus.

In Philippians Paul encourages the church to keep following Jesus. But serving Jesus can be costly, as Epaphroditus found. Yet even in his illness God still cared for him and looked after him. Paul urged the church in Philippi to welcome Epaphroditus and look after him.

It is important for the children that feel like they ‘belong’. When their feelings of security and belonging to the church are increased, they will also grow in understanding that they are important to God. So we’ll be exploring how they have a role within the church just as the adults do. We’ll talk about how they can care for others, even at their age.
