      Here is the lesson for the week of July 12

      Story Point:
      Pre/K
      Jesus healed a woman and brought a girl back to life.
      Gr1-6
      Jesus healed a woman and raised a girl from the dead.


      Bible Passage:
      Mark 5

      (summarized for kids)
      Jesus stood on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, and a large crowd gathered around Him. Jairus (JIGH ruhs), one of the leaders in the synagogue, fell at Jesus’ feet and begged for His help.

      “My daughter is about to die! Please come touch her so she will be healed and live,” he said. Jesus went with Jairus, and many people followed, crowding around Him.

      In the crowd was a woman who had been bleeding for 12 years. She had seen many doctors and had spent all her money trying to get better, but no one could help her. She was getting worse. The woman said to herself, “If I touch even Jesus’ clothes, I will be healed.”

      She came up behind Jesus in the crowd and touched His clothes. Immediately, her bleeding stopped and she knew she was healed.

      At that moment, Jesus felt that power had gone out of Him. He turned around. “Who touched My clothes?” He asked. Jesus’ disciples pointed out that many people were crowded around Him. But Jesus kept looking around. The woman, knowing she was healed, came forward and fell before Jesus. She told Him what had happened.

      Jesus said to her, “Daughter, your faith has saved you. Go in peace. You are healed.”

      While Jesus was speaking, some men came from Jairus’ house and told Jairus, “Your daughter is dead. Do not bother Jesus anymore.”

      Jesus heard what the men said, and He told Jairus, “Do not be afraid. Just believe.”

      Jesus and three of His disciples went to Jairus’ house. People there were crying and wailing loudly. “Why are you crying?” Jesus asked. “The child is not dead. She is sleeping.”

      The people laughed because they did not believe Jesus, and He told them all to leave. Jesus took Jairus and his wife into the room where the child was. He took the girl by the hand and said, “Little girl, get up.”

      Immediately, the girl got up and began walking around. Jairus and his wife were amazed. Jesus told them to give the girl some food and to not tell anyone what had happened.


      Christ Connection:
      Pre/K
      Jesus showed His power as the Messiah. Jesus can heal and give dead people life! Jesus died on the cross and rose again to save people from sin and death. When we trust in Jesus, God forgives our sins and changes us to be more like His Son.
      Gr1-6
      By healing the woman and raising the little girl from the dead, Jesus showed His power as the Messiah. Jesus died on the cross and rose again to save people from sin and death. When we trust in Jesus, God forgives our sins and changes us to be more like His Son.


      Key Passage:
      Isaiah 53:4-5
      Pre/K
      "Surely he took up our pain ... ; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed." (NIV)
      Gr1-6
      "Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed." (ESV)


      Big Picture Question:
      Pre/K
      Why did God create people? God created people to love Him and give Him glory.
      Gr1-6
      Why did God create people? God created people to worship Him, love Him, and show His glory.


      FOR THE PARENTS
      Jesus had just returned from the region of the Gerasenes, where He had healed a man with an unclean spirit. He crossed the Sea of Galilee and came on shore, where He was surrounded by a large crowd of people. News of Jesus’ teachings and healings was spreading, and people wanted to see Jesus. They wanted to learn from Him and be healed.

      Jairus, a leader in the synagogue, came to Jesus in crisis. His daughter was at the point of death. Without Jesus’ help, she would surely die. Jesus went with Jairus, but as He walked, a woman in the crowd came up behind Him and touched His robes. She too was desperate for healing. The woman believed that Jesus’ power was strong enough to heal her even if all she did was touch His robes. Because she had faith, Jesus healed her.

      Imagine Jairus’s devastation when he heard that his daughter had died. The people suggested that Jesus was too late to help her, but Jesus proved them wrong. He went to Jairus’s house and raised the little girl from the dead.

      By healing the woman and raising the little girl from the dead, Jesus showed His power as the Messiah. Jesus died on the cross and rose again to save people from sin and death. When we trust in Jesus, God forgives our sins and changes us to be more like His Son.

      As you talk with your kids, point out that the woman and the father of the little girl came to Jesus in faith. They needed Jesus’ help, and they trusted in Jesus’ power to heal. After Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead, He ascended to heaven. Even though Jesus is not physically on earth today, we can pray and ask God to heal people who are sick. Whether or not God grants physical healing, we can rest knowing that He brings ultimate healing through His Son, Jesus.
