Family Ministries Faith at Home


Greetings to all Families!

Please view our Teaching Videos related to our Family Lessons:
Families: HeatherChildren (Lighthouse): MonnetteYouth (DOXA): Leticia. Included are Faith Resource Links, Family Lesson Plans, Collage of Children's Artwork and Weekly Prayer.

Theme: Jesus Appears to His Disciples
Focus: To learn about Jesus' appearance to his disciples and the doubts Thomas had of Jesus' resurrection.
Scripture: John 20:19-31
Focus Scripture Verse: John 20:29 Blessed are those who believe without seeing.
Life Application Study Bible Summary: Jesus wasn't hard on Thomas for his doubts. Despite his skepticism, Thomas was still loyal to the believers and to Jesus himself. Some people need to doubt before belief. If doubt leads to questions, questions lead to answers, and the answers are accepted, then doubt has done good work. It is when doubt becomes stubbornness and stubbornness becomes a life-style that doubt harms faith. When you doubt, don't stop there. Let your doubt deepen your faith as you continue to search for the answer.
