Last Week's Lessons
6-11 year olds - TRUE TRUST. The memory verse was Proverbs 3:5-6. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowlege him, and he will make your paths straight. The story discussed was when Elisha took over after Elijah died (2 Kings 6:8-23) and even though things looked very scary for Elisha, God was bigger than his enemies and bigger than any situation we could ever be in.
12 and up - Jeremy taught on CHOICES. Three stories were read including Samson's story where he asks for God's power one last time (Judges 16:28-30), the temptation of Christ in the wilderness (Matthew 4:1-11), and Christ asking God to "take this cup from me" (Mark 14:35-36). As Jr & Sr High students are faced with difficult choises, making the right choice might be hard. Making the right choice is worth it. Jeremy also reminded the students that if you have made the wrong decision once, you are not locked into that decision forever. Just like Samson made some wrong choices along the way but turned back to God, you can make the right choice the next time.
This week we will be having pizza! The younger group will be learning about WINNING CONVERSATIONS and the older group will be learning about TEMPTATION.
