Big picture

Gather up some family and let's do Club 45 at home!

You're the expert on Club 45, so you be the teacher! Below is the lesson we had scheduled for this Sunday. Go through all the parts together wherever you are today.

Circle Time

Alright everyone, time to begin! Answer the following questions with your family:

  • Your name
  • Your number from 1-4 that tells us how you are...1 is not so good, 4 is great.
  • What is one valuable thing that you have given away for free? Could be a way that you serve another person, time that you spend with someone, something very expensive that you own. Whatever it is must be valuable and it must be something you freely gave.


Stand in Your Love

Stand In Your Love

When darkness tries to roll over my bones

When sorrow comes to steal the joy I own

When brokenness and pain is all I know

I won't be shaken, no, I won't be shaken

My fear doesn't stand a chance

When I stand in Your love

My fear doesn't stand a chance

When I stand in Your love

My fear doesn't stand a chance

When I stand in Your love

Oh, shame no longer has a place to hide

And I am not a captive to the lies

Oh, I'm not afraid to leave my past behind

I won't be shaken, no, I won't be shaken

There's power that can break off every chain

There's power that can empty out a grave

There's resurrection power that can save

There's power in Your name, power in Your name

Find it in the Bible

The last few weeks we’ve witnessed God’s power, both in praying for other people as well as reading stories about Jesus showing the power of God’s love for us. Last week Jesus explained how God’s rescue plan would work and then was betrayed by his friend Judas. This week we will see the high point of God’s rescue plan: Jesus’ crucifixion. Jesus’ death shows us what love is, how much God loves us, and what He is willing to give us because He loves us.

In a physical Bible, or in a Bible app like YouVersion, look up John 3:16. Read it together. Think and talk about this:

  • Who was talking in this verse?
  • How do you think God felt about sending his only Son out of Heaven to come to Earth to die?

Let's listen to the story together! Aaron O'Leary is our reader-leader today!

Chapter 39

Let's think about that a little bit!

      • How does God show His love for us?
      • What does Jesus’ death tell us about sin and how it affects our relationship with God?
      • As the story described Jesus’ death, what words came to mind? Remember, Jesus’ death on the cross shows us how much God loves us, so as we answer this question, we’re describing God’s love .

      Quiet time - just you and Jesus

      Find a spot where you and Jesus can chat.

      We’re going to take just a few minutes and sit quietly with Jesus. Our lives are full of so much noise and activity that sometimes it’s nice to just stop and listen for Jesus. Get comfortable, close your eyes and picture yourself with Jesus. Maybe picture you and Jesus by a lake, or sitting together on a rock, or curb, or in a flower patch. If you don’t have a picture, ask Jesus for one and he will show you! When we picture ourselves with Jesus in some way it helps our mind to focus on him instead of the other places our mind goes to like I’m hungry, I want to go home, I can’t wait to play with my friends later, or I love pizza and unicorns!

      Settle in with Jesus and talk with him. He loves to hear from you and it’s the best part of his day to be with you in this way. Tell him your thoughts, your fears, your worries, your dreams, hopes….just like a best friend….he wants to hear it all. Sometimes you will feel Jesus in different ways. Maybe he gives you his thoughts on something like someone just put in your brain what they think…that’s Jesus. You may feel His peace like a warm heavy blanket was just put on you. Maybe you have a picture come to your mind. We all experience Jesus in different ways. All of it you can ask Him about!

      Pray for each other

      What do you think you should pray together about as a family?

      Don't stand alone!

      Here's a whole bunch of ways you can connect with your Duluth Vineyard Church family
      • Small groups. Many are meeting online, and more online groups starting soon.
      • Get an email or a phone number for your Club 45 friends. Send one of us an email or text with the following info and we will get it to your friend's family, and leave it up to them to get in touch with you. Here's what we need from you: your name, your phone number (or parent phone number), the name(s) of the Club 45er you want to connect with, and all of the ways you want to invite your friend to contact you (email, gaming handle with parent permission, Snapchat, etc)

      Get in Touch!

      We would love to hear from you, pray with you, and connect you to other Club 45 friends so you can get together in smaller groups! Let us know how you enjoyed this creative version of Club 45.
