Sunday Morning 11/28: Unit 3, Session 2: Melchizedek Blessed Abraham

We marvel at stories with two characters who are total opposites of each other. This is why so many stories feature some form of a noble hero and an immoral villain. The contrast of character and conduct is what drives the tension of the story.  In Genesis 14, we find two completely opposite kings: theContinue reading “Sunday Morning 11/28: Unit 3, Session 2: Melchizedek Blessed Abraham”

Sunday Morning 11/21: Unit 3, Session 1: God Made a Covenant with Abraham

Think about all of the choices that we have each day. Just in the morning, we have dozens of different cereals to eat, perhaps that many varieties of milk to pour on top of the cereal, and nearly as many ways to make coffee to go with it. All of these are choices that weContinue reading “Sunday Morning 11/21: Unit 3, Session 1: God Made a Covenant with Abraham”

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”

Sunday Morning 10/24: Unit 2, Session 1: Sin Entered the World

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”
