This Week in Sunday School -
Theme for All Students - Prayer
Littles - We read A Very Happy Easter Prayer, by Bonnie Rickner Jensen. The book talks about why the Easter season is such a happy time of year - the weather is warming, flowers are blooming, and cuddly critters are leaving their nests. In the story, the woodland animals thank God for all the blessings of the season. It ends by saying, “Thank you, God, for Easter morning. Joyful news is here! Jesus lives forever. And His love is always near.”
Littles Craft/Activity - Our Littles used cardboard tube bunny stamps to make a joyful spring picture.
Middles and Youth - We talked about how we build a relationship with God through prayer. We also talked about how we pray with both words and actions, and what it means to live a life of unceasing prayer. How do we talk to God and how do we listen to God? Then we talked about 5 principal types of prayer - adoration, confession, thanksgiving, intercession and petition - and what they mean. We looked for places we find these types of prayer in our worship service and in our daily lives. They are bringing home a sheet with all of this information to share with their families as well.
Middles and Youth Craft/Activity - We didn’t have a craft this week. We just took advantage of the time to talk together and to do some pencil and paper activities along with our discussion.
