Welcome to a new year of Sunday School at Eternal Love. New students and teachers have joined our group of enthusiastic students and returning teachers. We begin our lessons on Sept. 9. Our prayer is that the Lord will bless our time together to the glory of God. May the Holy Spirit bless our lessons so that our students' faith grows and love for Jesus glows in all we do.
Our course of study is Bible history stories from the Growing in Christ curriculum. This is a three-year plan. Over the three years, your children will be instructed in nearly 100 lessons from the Bible. Each year about 33 lessons are scheduled from September through May. Lessons taught in Sunday School provide the necessary background for a closer study of Christian doctrine which takes place in 7th and 8th grade catechism classes.
This fall we will study the lives of Joseph and Moses, ending with the Bronze serpent. In the winter quarter, our focus is on Jesus life from the announcement to the virgin Mary through the Temptation of Jesus. In the spring quarter, we follow Jesus from his first miracle through his healing of the blind man. Next year, we will follow the Israelites into Canaan. The new testament will follow Jesus ministry from the sermon on the mount through Jesus blessing the children. The spring lessons focus on Christ's passion, resurrection and ascension.
We encourage parents to stay and join us for Adult Bible Study at the same time in the sanctuary. Sunday School students are dismissed at 10:20. Parents of young children may pick them up in their classroom. Others may plan where to meet up as a family. God bless all the students, teachers, and parents through this ministry.
