How to subscribe
God's Family | Matthew 21:33-46
The Point: As children of God we are to tell others about Jesus' love and salvation.

The Lesson:
Good morning, children. Thank you for joining me for this special time of sharing God's word.

This morning I brought my Baptismal (Dedication, Membership) Certificate with me. (show document) When I was baptized I became a part of God's family. The certificate announces that fact. Sometimes people think that is all the responsibility they have in God's family... to join... to become a member. They are wrong. Joining isn't the end -- it is really the beginning.... click here for the rest of the sermon
