As disciples of Jesus Christ, we want to show other people the love of Jesus in the way we regard them. Each of us is called to look in love at the people who are closest to us: our family and friends. We can start where we are, pausing to talk face to face. At our different ages and stages of life, we seek to be fully present and undistracted, listening and responding with care for the other person. Jesus calls us to treasure people and the time we have to share together.
This resource is designed to help you plan your Christian Education Week/Sunday celebration. Check with your annual conference to determine if a date has been set for this occasion and an offering was received to support educational ministries in your conference. This celebration can be combined with the launch of new opportunities for learning, service, and fellowship. It is a great time to emphasize and celebrate your congregation’s settings for discipleship. You’re invited to make this celebration a joyful recognition of God’s love in your midst and God’s call to share that love with one another and with all the people beyond the walls of your church.
