CHILDREN’S WORSHIP
Theme: God Makes Us One
Scripture: Ephesians 2:14-16
This week Rev. Robin Wells greets us from Lafayette UMC; Margie Shunk shares about how God
makes us one; Rev. Quentisha Davis Wiles and her daughter lead us in prayer; Mort finds a
solution and then, finds another answer–if you watch to the very end, you will see!

MINI REFLECTION

“Finding Your Sabbath” Pastor Sue King
READINGS FROM SCRIPTURE: Mark 7:24-30
24 From there [Jesus] set out and went away to the region of Tyre. He entered a house and did not
want anyone to know he was there. Yet he could not escape notice, 25 but a woman whose little
daughter had an unclean spirit immediately heard about him, and she came and bowed down at his
feet. 26 Now the woman was a Gentile, of Syrophoenician origin. She begged him to cast the demon
out of her daughter. 27 He said to her, “Let the children be fed first, for it is not fair to take the
children’s food and throw it to the dogs.” 28 But she answered him, “Sir,[b] even the dogs under the
table eat the children’s crumbs.” 29 Then he said to her, “For saying that, you may go—the demon has
left your daughter.” 30 So she went home, found the child lying on the bed, and the demon gone.
