Sunday School News
February will be an exciting mix of lessons for Sunday School as we wrap up our Epiphany season and enter into the season of Lent! For the rest of the Epiphany season, we will continue studying different moments in Jesus’ ministry and how we are called to participate in his ministry today. Halfway through the month, we enter the season of Lent, a time that calls us to examine our hearts and re-center our lives in Christ. Our focus will turn towards God’s signs of covenant and blessing stretching across the sky, echoing through the generations, pouring from the heavens, and calling throughout the nations. We will read stories such as the story of Noah’s Ark and the story of Abram and Sarai, both stories that will help us rediscover God’s love at work amidst the brokenness of our world.
Below are the focus texts of each week. We encourage parents to set some time during the week, maybe around the dinner table midweek, to read the texts together and discuss what is going on in the stories. It is a good way for the children to get acquainted with the biblical stories, allowing them to approach the stories more in-depth as they get older. It is also a great way for families to develop spiritual practices at home. To encourage this, we are looking into materials that families can use at home!
