Sunday Morning 4/17: Unit 7, Session 3: The Bible Helps Us Live for God

In 2 Timothy 3:16-17, Paul points out that Scripture is enough for us. It is our source for godliness and our final authority in matters pertaining to doctrine. The confessions of every Protestant denomination affirm the sufficiency of Scripture. Why does this matter for kids? We need to teach our kids that even though theContinue reading “Sunday Morning 4/17: Unit 7, Session 3: The Bible Helps Us Live for God”

Sunday Morning 4/10: Unit 7, Session 2: God Stopped the Jordan River

The children of Israel often gave in to worry and bitterness. Their attitude revealed deeper heart issues: their belief that God had failed to take care of them and would fail in the future. It was in the 40 years of wandering in the desert that God showed them over and over that He wasContinue reading “Sunday Morning 4/10: Unit 7, Session 2: God Stopped the Jordan River”

Sunday Morning 3/20: Unit 6, Session 3: God Healed People

If there was one thing the Israelites were good at, it was grumbling. They weren’t just good; they were experts: “We have no food. We have no water. Why are we in the wilderness left to die? The land has big people in it.” And on and on and on. We have to wonder howContinue reading “Sunday Morning 3/20: Unit 6, Session 3: God Healed People”

Sunday Morning 3/13: Unit 6, Session 2: Moses Disobeyed God

Many of us categorize sins, whether we intend to or not. There are the major sins—the really bad ones like murder that are clearly wrong. Thankfully, few of us are prone to commit these sins, so we are pretty safe from them.  Then there are the significant sins, like getting angry or lying. We know these areContinue reading “Sunday Morning 3/13: Unit 6, Session 2: Moses Disobeyed God”

Sunday Morning 2/13: Unit 5, Session 3: The People Worshiped a Golden Calf

After all God had done for the Israelites, the story of the Israelites’ worshiping a golden calf may seem surprising. How could God’s people turn so quickly from God, who delivered them from slavery and provided for them, even after they explicitly agreed to do everything He had commanded? (See Ex. 24:3.) When we thinkContinue reading “Sunday Morning 2/13: Unit 5, Session 3: The People Worshiped a Golden Calf”

Sunday Morning 2/6: Unit 5, Session 2: God Gave the Ten Commandments

God’s heart is for His people. When the Israelites cried out to the Lord, He heard them and had a plan to rescue them from their suffering.  That’s why God called Moses back to Egypt. Though Moses had been raised among the royal household in Egypt, his heart was for his own people too. GodContinue reading “Sunday Morning 2/6: Unit 5, Session 2: God Gave the Ten Commandments”

Sunday Morning 1/16: Unit 4, Session 3: God Parted the Red Sea

God’s people were finally free. After 430 years of slavery in Egypt, the Israelites—now numbering 600,000 men plus their families—were on their way out with Moses as their leader. God had promised to give them a new land: “a land flowing with milk and honey” (Ex. 3:17).  What did sudden freedom feel like? Did theContinue reading “Sunday Morning 1/16: Unit 4, Session 3: God Parted the Red Sea”

Sunday Morning 1/9: Unit 4, Session 2: God Delivered His People

God’s heart is for His people. When the Israelites cried out to the Lord, He heard them and had a plan to rescue them from their suffering.  That’s why God called Moses back to Egypt. Though Moses had been raised among the royal household in Egypt, his heart was for his own people too. GodContinue reading “Sunday Morning 1/9: Unit 4, Session 2: God Delivered His People”

Sunday Morning 1/2: Unit 4, Session 1: God Called Moses

Moses’ life was in danger from the moment he was born. He was an Israelite—a descendant of Israel (Jacob)—living in Egypt after Jacob’s family had moved there, seeking food during a famine.  Four hundred years later, this family had grown and multiplied. Moses’ parents, Amran and Jochebed, likely lived in fear of the pharaoh whoContinue reading “Sunday Morning 1/2: Unit 4, Session 1: God Called Moses”
