Sunday School Lessons * AUGUST 2020

Theme: Why Do I Need the Church?

Spirituality is not declining in America, but church affiliation is.  I can verbalize my love for Jesus and I’m a member of a church. So, why do I need the church? Modern day thinking overlooks the great truth of the purpose of the church. Faith in Christ, God gives us a new identity through Jesus and a new family in His church.  Commitment to the church is a nonnegotiable part of Christian discipleship.  Neglect the church and you will miss great benefits and opportunities that come from being affiliated with and committed to God’s people!!!
