The Faces of Jesus

This month of May, our theme is the ‘Faces of Jesus’.

Now what exactly does that mean? Jesus has done so many things for us to help us and because of that, many different images have been used to describe him. He has been called the Good Shepherd, the Bread of Life, Living Water, the Holy One, and so many other things! Just as in the image above, there are so many different names that Jesus goes by, and that’s not even all of them!

So in this program we have put together some activities that will explore a few of these ‘faces’ of Jesus. We hope you enjoy!

Also, take a look at this Broadview article, Black Jesus Article in Broadview, to see another view of Jesus.
