This Week in Sunday School -
Theme for the Littles - Jesus Grows Up
Theme for the Middles and Youth - Fruit of the Spirit - Faithfulness - Part 2
Littles - Today we read the story of the only story in the bible of Jesus as a young boy (Luke 2:41-52). He and his family make their yearly pilgrimage to Jerusalem at Passover time, and are returning home when Mary and Joseph discover that Jesus is not with them. They search frantically for him for 3 days. Finally they go to the Temple in Jerusalem, where they find him talking with the teachers. Jesus is amazed that his parents did not know that he would be “in my Father’s house.” We discussed this as the beginning of Jesus realizing that he had important work to do when he grew up.
Craft/Activity - We had a maze worksheet and also made a growth chart.
Middles and Youth - We continued with the second part of our lessons on the Fruit of the Spirit, Faithfulness. Last time we met we identified some synonyms for faithfulness - to be true, trust, steadfast, loyal, always there, belief. Today first we looked for examples of faithfulness described in our worship service. Then we talked about ways we recognize God’s faithfulness to us in our everyday lives as well as ways we demonstrate faithfulness.
