This Week in Sunday School - Theme - God takes care of us in many ways. God’s light shines in many ways in the world around us.
Littles - This week we read the book, Animals of the Bible from A to Z, by Alice Camille. Some of the animals in this storybook are those who actually appeared in bible stories, such as those in the stable at the birth of Jesus, the whale in the story of Jonah, or the lions who spared Daniel. Other animals were chosen to highlight a virtue, symbolize a desirable characteristic, or warn of a wickedness. The overall theme of the book is that God is caring for us all of the time, in many different ways, and often through the people or even the animals in the world around us.
With the beginning of fall upon us, we also talked about the change of the seasons, another way God is present in our world. God’s love shines everywhere. We sang, “This Little Light of Mine,” and “God is so Good.”
Craft/Activity - Today the children made a fall-themed sun catcher to hang in a window and let God’s light shine through. Also, children who were not in Sunday School last week, had the opportunity to make a lantern to remind them to let their light shine. (**NOTE** The lanterns made this week will have to dry overnight so they won’t be able to bring them home until next week.)
