- talk about the upcoming lessons
- and add an educational piece for parents.
SUNDAY SCHOOL NEWS!
We’re coming to the finish line of our “Moses Frees His People” rotation and the kids are doing a great job of learning.
The teachers for this rotation are:
First Acts - Brian Koehler;
Son Theater - Kelly Mostrom;
Creation Station - Dee Dee Novotny
Bible Quest - Lois Petersen
As well, Jolene Jensen puts in a lot of hard work with the kids in music. Don’t hesitate to ask any questions and thank them for their part in teaching our kids. Better yet, volunteer to help.
Quiz your students on what they have learned.
- What book of the Bible is our lesson in? Old or new testament? Mini Message of Exodus?
- What did you make in Creation Station?
- Ask them what plagues were represented in the game “Pharaoh’s Folly” in Bible Quest.
- Ask your pre-schooler or kindergartner about the game “Moses Says” or “Pharaoh’s Frogs”.
- Ask the students what they saw in the “Prince of Egypt” video.
- Ask your child how many plagues there were and how many can they name.
- Ask them about acting out the story in First Acts. What part did they play?
- Ask your students, did Pharoah let the people go? Why or why not?
- How did the Israelites feel?
Our next rotation is “Ruth and Naomi”
It will begin on November 9th. Help get your student started on their memory verse.
Ruth 1:16 - “Where you go, I will go. Where you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God.”
DOES SUNDAY SCHOOL & CHURCH MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse recently announced the findings of one of the first surveys that specifically addressed the impact of church attendance on kids’ drinking and drug-taking behaviors. The survey found that churchgoers are much less likely than infrequent and non-attendees to smoke, drink, or get high.
According to the survey...
One in five unchurched kids smoke. Only one in 13 churched kids smoke.
Two in five unchurched kids have smoked marijuana. Only one in eight churched kids have ever tried marijuana.
Two in five unchurched kids say at least half of their friends drink. One in five churched kids say at least half of their friends drink.
