Bible class overview Jan. 7th – 11th

Please see the attached 2-week planner for what we will be covering in each grade over the course of the next two weeks, here are some highlights:

6th grade: We have had lots of fun talking about the importance of prayer, studying stories such as Mary/Martha (Luke 10:38-42) and the Lord’s prayer recorded in Luke 11. Next week we will continue with stories such as Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead (John 11), the healing of the ten lepers (Luke 17) and the persistent widow (Luke 18).

7th grade: We are continuing to wrestle with the book of Ecclesiastes whose main theme is that apart from God our lives have no meaning or purpose. This has generated some great discussions on what really matters in our lives and what are priorities should be. We will continue our discussion along these lines into next week.

8th grade: We are continuing our study through the book of Acts. We had a great discussion based on Acts 15 on the relationship between faith and works. We will also be outlining several chapters (16-21).

For all grades:  We are continuing our weekly study through the book of Nehemiah (which will also serve as our Q2 Bible Project). We are finishing Nehemiah 5 and will complete chapter 6 next week. I will then give out the instructions for the Q2 Bible Project. It will be due Friday, Jan. 25th.

Next week’s memory verse: “They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the end of the world. In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.” Psalm 19:3-4
