There are so many things from Jesus. In this series, we will start as baptism and look throughout his ministry and see what parables he taught, miracles he performed, and what lessons we can learn from him and his life.
JESUS SAID WHAT: SERIES OVERVIEW
Tagline: The “I AM” Statements of Jesus
Synopsis: Jesus taught us many great things about how we should live and how we
should treat other people. But some of the most important things He spoke were the
things he told us about who He was – God himself.
Memory Verse: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Hebrew
I AM. . .
Scripture: John 8:42-59, Jesus Claims About Himself
To the people of the Old Testament – Abraham, Joseph, Moses – God was the great “I
AM.” When Jesus said, “before Abraham was born, I AM!” he was telling the people that
he was God himself – he was with the Father from the beginning of time.
The Bread of Life
Scripture: John 6:32-42, 60-69, The Bread of Life
After Jesus fed the 5,000, he told the people “I AM the Bread of Life.” Just as we need
to eat food for our physical health, we need Jesus for our spiritual health.
The Light of the World
Scripture: John 8:12-20, The Light of the World
Light allows us to see and keeps us from stumbling in the dark. Many people in this
world live in spiritual darkness because of sin. Jesus is the Light of the World who
exposes sin and shows us the good and right way to live.
The Gate for the Sheep
Scripture: John 10:7-10, The Gate for the Sheep
Throughout the Bible, God’s people are described as His sheep. Jesus is the Gate.
Only through a relationship with Jesus can we enter into the sheep pen and become one
of God’s people too.
JESUS SAID WHAT: SERIES OVERVIEW
The Good Shepherd
Scripture: John 10:11-18, The Good Shepherd
A shepherd feeds, cares for, and protects his sheep. Jesus is our Good Shepherd and
we are his sheep. Jesus went so far as to lay down his life for his sheep.
Objective: Kids will learn that Jesus laid down his life for us.
The Resurrection and the Life
Scripture: John 11:17-44, Jesus Raises Lazarus
Jesus performed a miracle by raising Lazarus from the dead. He also gave us a great
promise when he said: “I AM the resurrection and the life.” He was saying that everyone
who believes in Jesus will have eternal life.
The Way, The Truth, and The Life
Scripture: John 14:1-7, The Way to the Father
People get confused thinking there are many different ways to God. BUT Jesus said
that the only way to the Father and to live with Him in heaven is through Jesus. Jesus is
the Way, the Truth, and The Life.
Scripture: John 15:1-17, The Vine and the Branches
The branches of a plant cannot survive unless they are continually connected to the
main vine. Jesus is the Vine. To live a holy, fruitful, and happy life, we need to be
constantly connected to Him.

Each year, FBC sets aside a month or so to focus on missions. During this time, we get to prayerfully consider what we individually will give each week to missions, over and above our normal tithes and offerings.
While we have several missionaries scheduled to attend our missions emphasis for 2017, we may not be able to post all of their updates here due to security concerns.
As we kick off a new ministry year, we're going to look at the journey that the early church took in the book of Acts.
How God wants us to think.
