Online Sunday School

Each weekend we will post Sunday School for kids and youth on Facebook. It will go live Sundays at 9:30. Familiar teachers and their families will share this week’s Bible story with you in a variety of fun ways. We hope you enjoy Sunday School at home with your family.

This Week in Sunday School

HELP!: A 4-WEEK SERIES FROM EXODUS ON MOSES

SERIES OVERVIEW: An important part of childhood is learning which grown-ups you can trust. The very first phone number most kids tend to learn is an emergency number because it’s important to know who to call when we need help! In this series, we’ll help kids see that they can always call on God for the things they need. As kids hear the story of Israel escaping slavery in Egypt (and what happened afterward), they’ll discover that God helps us when we’re helpless, helps us in our weakness, helps us when we’re in trouble, and will even help us help others. God is the help we need — always!

Fall Resources

This fall we are going to focus on spending time with others. That may not in person right now, but spending time in Christian community strengthens our faith. Right now the greatest Christian community kids can have is their families. So gather together and get talking. Grow in your faith together.

Tip of the Month:

As your kids prepare to start a new school year, remember your words can speak life and have power in their lives. Make the most of the opportunities you have to encourage them, calm them, and speak peace and truth into their lives. 

Resources:

As your kids go back to school (possibly), here’s a fun and simple way to encourage them during the day: write a simple, encouraging note, prayer, or Bible verse, on an index card, sticky note, or on one of these LunchBox Notes, and slip it in their lunchbox or backpack
