Vista Kids Learning Hour (Sunday School) in Review... last weekend:

Jesus called Levi, saying to him "Follow me". Levi left everything behind to follow Jesus.

On Valentine weekend, we are reminded that Jesus loves all! "Healthy people don't need a doctor, but sick people do". Jesus came to change sinners' hearts and lives!

Luke 5:27-32

Kids Club is the Place to Be!

This past Sunday:

Jesus is the King of our hearts.

Jesus' death in the Gospel of John portrays Jesus as the King. Jesus prayed for others in the garden. Jesus proclaimed that he wanted to create God's kingdom in people's hearts. On the cross, Pilate posted a sign that read, "Jesus the Nazarene, the king of the Jews" (John 19:19), written in Aramaic, Latin, and Greek so everyone could read it and know that Jesus died for us.

(John: The Gospel of Light and Life Curriculum by Adam Hamilton)
