Today in Sunday School Student in Sunday School today explore the story ?Jesus Clears the Temple.? Jesus? cleansing the temple carries a twofold message for the Jews and for us: first, that the true Lord of the temple was here in the flesh and, second and more important, that Jesus is the true temple, who houses and perfects us, raising our bodies to be like His. Parents could ask, ?Why did Jesus clear the temple? How is Jesus our temple??

If you are a member of Thrivent and had designated where you wanted your 2011 Choice Dollars to go, this is a reminder that the 2011 elections expire on March 31st.

This is a new policy and MUST be done each year, or your Choice Dollars will not be disbursed. There are many good causes, but certainly remember Messiah as one of your options.
