Sunday Morning 11/14: Unit 2, Session 4: People Rebel Against God

We love to measure the health, success, or sustainability of pretty much anything and everything. We measure our kids by their grades in school. We measure teams by their wins and losses. We measure people by their influence and following on social media. In a world obsessed with measuring “success,” we ought to be assessingContinue reading “Sunday Morning 11/14: Unit 2, Session 4: People Rebel Against God”

Sunday Morning 11/7: Unit 2, Session 3: God Spared Noah

The Bible is full of promises. As early as the first few chapters of Genesis, we begin to see God make, and even fulfill, His promises: promises for punishment and for blessing, for death and for life, for separation and for salvation. In Noah’s journey to build an ark, survive the flood, and begin toContinue reading “Sunday Morning 11/7: Unit 2, Session 3: God Spared Noah”

Sunday Morning 10/31: Unit 2, Session 2: Sin Spread to People

Siblings often fight and compete as children and even adults. It may be over something as innocent as who gets the last cookie or as serious as who inherits their parents’ prized heirloom.  The competition Cain felt toward Abel—the world’s first siblings—reminds us that these family tensions can cause great damage to our relationships withContinue reading “Sunday Morning 10/31: Unit 2, Session 2: Sin Spread to People”

Does the story of the fall surprise you? How could Adam and Eve—who had everything they needed—rebel against a loving God? Do you think you would have acted differently?  Adam and Eve’s story is our story. Think about the last time you blatantly sinned. What lies were you believing in that moment? Satan wants usContinue reading “Sunday Morning 10/24: Unit 2, Session 1: Sin Entered the World”

Sunday Morning 10/17: Unit 1, Session 3: Creation Glorified God

In the first two sessions of this unit, we have seen a common thread of God’s glory. God created everything, including people, to display His glory. In this session, we want to make sure that our kids understand what that means. What is God’s glory?  God’s glory can be thought of as God’s greatness. TheContinue reading “Sunday Morning 10/17: Unit 1, Session 3: Creation Glorified God”

Sunday Morning 10/10: Unit 1, Session 2: God Created People

Humans are at the center of everything God created. Only God Himself is more important. That is why the creation of the first man and woman—Adam and Eve—deserved its own session.  As you talk with your kids about this week’s session, there are two words that might be unclear or even confusing. The first is our inContinue reading “Sunday Morning 10/10: Unit 1, Session 2: God Created People”

Sunday Morning 10/3: Unit 1, Session 1: God Created the World

This week, your child learned about God creating the world from Genesis 1:1-25. The true story of the Bible begins where we would expect it to begin—at the beginning of all creation. Everything in the universe has a starting point except God. He alone is eternal—He has no beginning and no end. He has alwaysContinue reading “Sunday Morning 10/3: Unit 1, Session 1: God Created the World”

Sunday Morning 9/12: Unit 36, Session 2: Letters to Seven Churches

The Book of Revelation opens with John’s description of a vision. In the vision, Jesus gave John messages for seven local churches.
