WINTER 2018 LESSONS


Attention Volunteers & Parents (New for Fall 2018)

  1. To better serve our families, we've made adjustments to how our classrooms are organized, beginning 9/2/18. Formerly "Nursery" is now birth - 2 years. Formerly "Toddler Room" is now 3 years - Kindergarten. Formerly "Big Kids" is now 1st gr. - 5th gr. 
  2. Our nursery now has age-appropriate gospel activities. Here are 3 quick and easy ways to prepare for interacting with babies. 


Unit 4: God's people in Egypt

God used Joseph to provide for the people of Israel and bring them into Egypt, which set the state for a glorious demonstration of God's power to deliver. God raised up Moses to rescue His people from bondage in Egypt. God saved His people from physical captivity in Egypt like He would one day save His people from spiritual captivity by sending Jesus, a Deliverer greater than Moses. 


Key Passage

Hosea 13:4 "But I am the Lord your God from the land of Egypt; you know no God but me, and besides me there is no savior."


Big Picture Question

Q: Is there anything God cannot do?

A: God can do all things according to His character.

Unit 5: Toward the promised land

Moses led God's people toward the promised land. God made a covenant with His people and gave them laws to guide them in how to live and to help them understand His perfect holiness. God's laws show that the only way to be right with God is through faith in Jesus, the only perfectly righteous One.


Key Passage

Matthew 22:37-39 "And he said to him, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself."


Big Picture Question

Q: What is God like?

A: God is holy, good, and loving.

Unit 6: Worship in the wilderness

As the rescued people of Israel traveled through the wilderness, God instructed His covenant people how to live holy lives in an unholy world. God also gave them rules for worship. God's law sustained their relationship with God until His perfect plan was revealed through Jesus Christ. 


Key Passage

Exodus 15:2 "The Lord is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise him, my father's God, and I will exalt him." 


Big Picture Question

Q: What is worship? 

A: Worship is celebrating the greatness of God.
