Kids Corner: The Church Is The People

It’s sad when we can’t go to church, but it’s important to know that the thing that makes your church special is not the building itself. The Church, the REAL Church is the people, not the building.

In the Old Testament, the Israelites were given instructions on how to build and maintain the Temple, a home for God where He would meet with His people. And the Israelites would gather at the temple to worship. So it can be easy to think that our church buildings are a modern version of the temple, but they aren’t. The bible says that, if you believe in Jesus Christ, YOU are God’s temple. The Church (Big “C”), is all Christians, and the Church is meant to be Jesus’ hands and feet, to share the love of Jesus with a lost and lonely world. Let’s be the Church God wants us to be!
