Here's what is happening in Church School this Sunday, March 10, and in the weeks ahead
Preschool I and II,
Lent has begun! Preschool students learn about the season of Lent. They also continue learning about the parables with the Parable of the Lost Coin. Have you ever lost something? How did you feel? What did you do to try to find it? Students learn how God finds those who have lost their way from Him.
PreKindergarten and Kindergarten
Students learn about the season of Lent. What are we waiting for? How long does Lent last?
Due to last Sunday's inclement weather, the first grade class presentation of Jesus Calming the Storm was postponed. This Sunday, March 10, first grade students should arrive at Chapel at 8:45 am to prepare for their performance. There are plenty of roles - both speaking and non-speaking - so please encourage your child to share his or her talents. Parents are invited to attend the performance during the 9:15 am Chapel service. In class, first grade students will learn about the Parable of the Good Samaritan and make candy bags for young people at the detention center as an outreach project.
Second grade students learn about the season of Lent. They also continue learning about the Old Testament with the story of Gideon. Why do you think God chose Gideon to lead an army?
Third grade students continue to travel the world learning about Jesus's miracles. This week they visit an area near Bethsaida where Jesus seeks to be alone but is followed by crowds of people. How will Jesus feed the multitude with only five loaves of bread and two small fish? After Feeding the Five Thousand, Jesus sends his disciples on a boat to the other side of the Sea of Galilee while he remains behind to pray. How does Jesus join them? Jesus and his disciples take another boat ride on the Sea of Galilee when a storm erupts. What happens next? Finally, in the town of Galilee students visit the home of Jarius, whose 12-year old daughter is dying. What happens during the visit?
Fourth and Fifth Grades
Fourth and fifth grade students learn about Abraham, a rich man, and Lazarus, who suffered. Did Abraham help Lazarus? What happens to each of them?
