Second Sunday in Advent

We are in the Advent season of the church year. The word Advent is from the Latin, meaning “coming into.” The story of Jesus in Advent is the story of hope coming into the world. When the time was just right, God sent His Son, Jesus, into the world. Jesus came to save you and the whole world from the power of sin and death. Jesus is the world’s only hope of salvation from these enemies. 

1st Reading

Malachi 3:1-7

2nd Reading

Philippians 1:2-11

The Gospel of the Day

Luke 3:1-14

Prayer

Dear Jesus, please expand our ability to trust you and always have hope in our hearts that you hear our prayer, though it may not be answered in a way we expect. Jesus, lead me that I may be filled with hope. Amen.

Sunday School

Grades 5-6

The grades 5-6 Sunday School class meets Sunday mornings at 9:00 and is taught by Terri Good (aka Miss Terri).  The class is in-person in the lower level of Prince of Peace Church. 

Right now, this class is taking a walk through the Bible.  We are learning who wrote each book, when the book was written, why the book was written, and how the book points to Jesus and our salvation.  So far, we have explored Genesis from Creation to the Flood to the Patriarchs and how  the 12 Tribes of Israel arrived in Egypt.  Next we will study Exodus and the story of how God delivered His people from slavery in Egypt, the 40 years in the wilderness, the 10 Commandments, and entry into the Promised Land.  We will continue through all 66 books of the Bible.  Some books will be touched on briefly, while others will be examined more closely.  

I have no particular time-line for this journey, as I am creating the lessons as I go.  I hope that over a 2-year span we will have made it to Revelation!  The cool part about this journey is you don't have to start at the beginning of the Bible to learn about God's love for us - it is in every book, in every chapter, in every verse!  

While the class is mainly for grades 5 and 6, our class is currently composed of children in grades 4-6.  

Grades 4 and under

Every Sunday at 9:00 am in the church basement.  Please go directly to your classroom.  Classes are taught by Neva Rose and Margaret Carreno.

We are using the materials, “Simply Loved” by Group Publishing.  We begin with a music video, have a Bible Point; then Bible Discovery, which includes a story on DVD and Bible verses with discussion.  Then we have some craft time with a Friendship Finale.  This is lots of fun and the children are really enjoying it.  If your preschooler to 4th graders cannot join us in person at 9:00 a.m., please join us for Zoom Sunday School at 11:00 a.m., taught by Laurie Fritz and Margaret Carreno.
