Keep On Praying

This past Sunday in Treasure Seekers, we looked at the story JesuImage result for dory just keep prayings told in Luke Chapter 18 about praying with persistence

…never giving up.

Why is it important to pray with patience and perseverance in our lives as followers of Jesus?



You continue to be in our prayers.  We thank God for you and pray that you will always remember and know that you are loved children of God.

How is this working for you?

Dear Families,

 Image result for How is this working? images  I continue to pray for you and think about ways that Friedens UCC can support and encourage your journeys as followers of Jesus.

Are there certain kinds of resources that would be helpful for you?

What kinds of questions are on your heart and mind  right now?

Is the blog helpful or would another form of social media be more useful to you?

Thank you for your feedback!  Sarah


This week is Treasure Seekers our Bible passage was from 2 Timothy 1.  This book of the Bible is a very short letter in the New Testament or Greek Scriptures.

Related imageWe talked about our fears and thought about who and what can help us when we are afraid.  We put motions to this verse – 2 Timothy 1:7 – For God has given us not a spirit of fear but of power, love, and self-control.  Maybe you and your families would like to talk more about this verse throughout the week.

Maybe you’d like to write it on a big piece of paper and decorate it.  Then you could hang it in a place you would see often.

I hope it is of encouragement to you.  God bless, Sarah

Being Peacemakers

This past Sunday the United Church of Christ celebrated Just Peace Sunday.  The Treasure Seekers looked at Matthew 5:9 which says, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

What does it mean to be a peacemaker?  How would your family like to work for peace?

Lost and Found

This Sunday in Treasure Seekers we talked about the parable of the lost sheep and the parable of the lost coin in Luke 15.

Image result for lost coin parableHow does it feel to be lost or to lose something special?  How does it feel when you are found or find what you’ve lost? (If you print and color the page below, think about how happy that little sheep was to get help as you are coloring!)

God always loves us and wants to be in close relationship with us.  What helps us to stay in close relationship with God?

How can we share God’s unconditional love with others?

What Does the Cross Mean to Us?

Image result for christian cross designsAt Treasure Seekers on Sunday we talked about the cross and what it means to us.

We also talked about how the cross is sometimes seen as a sign of discipleship.

Perhaps this week you and your family would like to talk about what it means to be a disciple of Jesus.

We thank God for each of you.  We pray that you will always know that you are a loved child of God.

We are anxious to hear how you are growing as a disciples of Jesus and to know if there are any ways that we can help!
