This Week in Sunday School - Theme - Let your light shine, so that others will see the good that you do and will praise your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16)
Littles - They had the passage about “Salt and Light” and about “The Law of Moses” (Matthew 5:13-20) read to them from our Spark Children’s Bible. Then they talked about how in this passage Jesus is telling us that when we follow him we are like lights, because we can show others the way to see Jesus’ love and how to follow him. We do this when we show kindness to others. If we decide not to show love and kindness, we are like the light that is covered up. When we darken our world like this it is sad, but when we show love and kindness to others we honor God in our lives. They talked about ways to show kindness and who they might show kindness to today.
Middles and Youth - They also read together the passages about “Salt and Light” and “The Law of Moses” from our contemporary youth bibles (Matthew 5:13-20). Then we discussed what it means to “show your light” in the world around you, times and ways that they have shown their light and ways they have experienced others doing the same.
Craft/Activity - Today both groups made lanterns to remind them to let their light shine. **NOTE** These will have to dry overnight so they won’t be able to bring them home until next week. More pictures will be posted of the finished lanterns next week.
