Sunday School Good News

Here is what we are learning this week in Sunday School.

Time: 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.

Children’s Division

and 4th & 5th Grade Class

Topic: A New Way.
Scripture: Galatians 5:18-26; 6:1-10.
Key Verse:  The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. (Galatians 5:22-23a)
Faith Block: Love is a fruit of the Spirit. Joy is a fruit of the Spirit.
Objective: In this week’s lesson your child will hear about the apostle Paul’s encouragement to the Galatian Christians to live and walk in the Spirit. Also, they will hear about the characteristics that followers of Jesus should have. They will hear that the fruit of the Spirit is not fruit from a tree, but behavior that shows God’s love.

Youth Division
6th through 8th (Middle School Grade Class);
9th through 12th (High School Grade Class)

Topic: Which Way To Live?
Scripture: Galatians 5:18-26; 6:1-10.
Key Verse: The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things, there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)
General Lesson: The Birthing of a New Community.
Overview: This week the Youth will discuss Paul’s letter in what he’s telling thE Galatians believers that if they were led by the Spirit, they would not be under the Law. Paul also noted that a person who is living life in the Spirit does not satisfy the flesh. When one is living life in the Spirit, his or her walk, conversation, and entire being is dominated by the Holy Spirit.

Adult Division
Adult Classes

Topic: Fruitful Living.
Scripture: Galatians 5:18-26; 6:1-10.
Key Verse: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things, there is no law.
General Lesson: Christ Creates Holy Living.
Unifying Lesson Principle: Many people reduce their religious obligations to fulfilling a set of legalistic requirements. What are the characteristics of an authentic Christian lifestyle? Paul sharply contrasted a Spirit-filled life with life in the flesh.

Purpose of Sunday School

We believe in the Great Commission; as it applies to Sunday School. To change lives for Jesus Christ by evangelizing the lost and disciplining those who respond to the Gospel through our classes, which we study the philosophy of the Bible and it’s teaching on how to live the principles of Christ.

Mission

The Sunday School Ministry is committed to moving members from Membership to Discipleship.

“Information and Explanation are Foundational to our teaching, but Transformation is the Goal!”
Therefore, we focus on teaching believers to obey him in every aspect of their lives and to develop a relationship with Christ that leads to becoming fully committed followers of Christ.

Goal

Jesus gives us a clear and concise ministry goal: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, “Teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the ages.”
