Lesson: Seeds, Fruits, and Planting Character (Galatians 5:22-23; Galatians 6:7-10)

child-garden-tomato

Jesus spoke often in parables and metaphors, using imagery of things known to explain things that were harder to understand. We can certainly use that example in teaching young students, using simple things to remind them of important truths. In this lesson, fruit is the main object. We will use real samples to discuss the […]

Holy Spirit Memory Object Lesson (1 John 14:26)

Holy Spirit Memory Object Lesson (1 John 14:26)

You and I know that God’s Word has a supernatural quality–it not only empowers, frees and comforts us but it is infused with the Holy Spirit. How many times have I read a verse and all of a sudden, it kind of “jumps off the page.” You see something unique and amazing for the first […]

Lesson: Priceless Pearls… Prioritizing the Right Thing (Matthew 6:19-21)

Recently, we hosted a church yard sale fundraiser, which brought to mind the incredible amount of utter junk that some people hang onto…do we really need the one-armed doll, headless ceramic duck, or box of warped cassette tapes from 1983? Why is it so hard to let go of things that for all honesty’s sake […]

There are many wonderful worship songs out there to sing, hear, admire and inspire. For that matter, there are also abundant songs for kids to learn and sing.

learning-to-pray

We do it in church, before meals, when we need something…but many times students neglect or fail to understand just what prayer is and how to do it. Does authentic prayer require a certain ritual, motion, or series of words? Why bother to pray if God has a plan already? Here are some ideas and […]

It is critical, of course, to study the work and death of Jesus. But all of that is rather meaningless if Christ did not also rise again as He promised. Then what? Following the events of Easter, Jesus appeared to the disciples and gave them instructions regarding what to expect and to do in remembrance […]

Lesson: The Beauty of the Cross…Hope in Holy Week (Mark 14:22-24)

Celtic-cross

As we approach Holy Week and prepare our hearts for Easter, it’s easy to become caught up in the excitement of egg hunts, palm branch crosses, and chocolate bunnies. It can even grow tiresome to talk yet again about what may seem an “obvious” Christian story. But students can benefit from focusing on details of […]
