We’re The Church

Day 1 of 8 • This day’s reading


The Church is everyone who follows Jesus.

You might go to church. But did you know that God’s Church isn’t a building? God’s Church is actually people—it’s God’s family. When you choose to trust and follow Jesus, you become part of His family!

Being part of a family means you get to help care for your family. Like the early church, you get to work with other members of the family, doing good for each other, sharing with each other, and making sure everyone has what they need. When you care for each other well, other people will be able to tell that you love and follow Jesus. It might make them want to join God’s family too!

Talk It Over: What is one way you can care for God’s family today? How does that show others that you love and follow Jesus?
