You may also email our treasurer Phil at phil.w@grassroots.church to give to our love fund. Last year we were able to support families at grassroots with micro-gifts totalling over $6,000.

Stay tuned for more info about our service and care response to COVID-19.  

Here is the Bible project video for grades 5 & 6. 

Today is Palm Sunday and this video covers that and leads up through Jesus’ death.  Read over these questions before watching it,  watch it while paying close attention, then go over the questions again and see if you know the answers.

What prophesies were fulfilled?  Who were the main people who didn’t believe or accept Him?  
Jesus wept as he came near Jerusalem.  Why?  I wonder how we would’ve responded to Him if we were there.  As we learned of the Upside Down Kingdom last week, Jesus didn’t seem like the king most people were looking for.  

During the Passover meal, Jesus does something different when he talks of the bread and wine and passes it around.  What do they symbolize?  What does this mean for us, for YOU today? 
Jesus loved His enemies to the end, forgiving the thief crucified with him, and praying for God to forgive those executing Him.  Are there people we need to forgive today? Ask God to show you how and to give you courage to forgive.  It’s a gift we can give to others and brings us peace too. 
Jesus’  death was the ultimate sacrifice.  He gave up His life so each of us can have life forever.  How does knowing that make a difference in how we live each day?  Through this next week, try to take extra time to ponder this and  thank Him for the life He’s given.
