Welcome to Faith Quest

Mary & Martha (Revised)

February 5-March 5, 2006

Jesus and his disciples were traveling and they came to the village where Jesus’ friends Mary and Martha lived.

Martha welcomed Jesus into her home and got busy cooking and taking care of the guests. Meanwhile, her sister Mary sat down in front of Jesus and listened to everything he said. Martha was worried about all the work that had to be done and irritated that Mary wasn’t helping. Finally, she went to Jesus and said, "Lord, doesn't it bother you that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her to come and help me!"

Jesus answered, "Martha, Martha! You are worried and upset about so many things, but only one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen what is best, and it will not be taken away from her."

Memory Verse:  “Be still and know that I am God.”  Psalm 46:10

What we will learn:

What is happening in Faith Quest Workshops?

In Holywood, watch the video “Martin the Cobbler”.

In Antioch Arcade, play a game focusing on choices we make.

In Creation Station create symbols of Mary or Martha using clay.

In Apostle’s Playhouse experience the story of Mary and Martha using charades, drama, and pantomime.

In Praising Puppets focus on the attitudes of Mary and Martha through puppet expressions.

Family Time and Prayer

Read:  Luke 10:38-42

Reflection:  How were Mary and Martha different when serving Jesus?  What can we learn from listening to Jesus’ messages?

Prayer:  Thank you God for our hands and ears and for the stories in the Bible that teach us so much about the love of God and Jesus.  Amen.
