Bible Buddies met for their April meeting a little earlier than normal this month. Bible Buddies was held on April 10th, a week before Easter.
The meeting began with the children’s prayer requests and Jeff leading the children in prayer.

On April 9th, the Primary Class learned about the living water.
Sandra began telling the children about the woman Jesus met at the well, as described in John chapter 4. The woman, a not-so-nice woman by most standards, was at the well drawing water at a time of day when most people would not be around.

Shocked that someone had spoken to her, the woman told Jesus that she could not get him a drink because He did not have anything to put the water in.

Sandra explained to the children, like Jesus explained to Nicodemus, that the phrase “born again” means that Jesus washes a soul free from sin and makes a person’s heart white as snow, or new again. She explained to the class that when Nicodemus heard the phrase “born again”, he thought it meant an actual second physical birth. Nicodemus did not understand that the phrase meant a spiritual rebirth. Continue reading “A Wordless Book About Salvation”
