GOD VIEW: The connection between joy and God’s character, as shown through God’s Big Story. Knowledge is learning something new so you can be better at whatever you do.
JANUARY WEEK TWO: In week two, we find Jesus at the Jordan River. InJohn 1:19-42 and John 3:22-36. Jesus’ cousin, John the Baptist, is also at the Jordan River preparing the way for Jesus. When Jesus told John to baptize Him, at first, John refused, feeling far too inferior to baptize Jesus. John knew enough about the Scriptures, and he understood enough about God’s story that he responded to Jesus in a different way.
BOTTOM LINE: If you want to know God, start with Jesus. The best way to know God is by taking time to find out more about Jesus. Jesus shows us what God is like. God loves us so much that He sent Jesus to make a forever relationship with Him possible. We want every kid to know how important it is to trust Jesus with their life.

This week in Children’s Church we learned about John the Baptist baptizing Jesus. This was when Jesus began his public ministry. He began by being baptized in order to “fulfill all righteousness.” Jesus never had any sin, but He is our example. He was baptized in order to demonstrate to us that it is the right thing to do.
He also showed us a picture of what baptism is. It pictures His death, burial and resurrection from the dead. It also pictures newness of life. We also see in this story the theme of our Sunday lesson which is “Jesus is the Son of God.” After Jesus was baptized the Father spoke from heaven declaring that Jesus is His Son.
