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 offered concurrently on zoom and 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

All preschoolers through 4th grade children are invited to join us on Zoom every Sunday at 11:00 am, taught by Laurie Fritz & Margaret Carreno. 

If you would like to join us, please call Laurie Fritz or the church office or email the church office at office@princeofpeacetopeka.org and we will send you the Zoom invite.  The way Zoom works, you need to have the invite to join us.

What do we do?  Laurie does the opening, (how are you, what did you do last week and so on.)  This is an informal gathering and a “check-in” with the young people.  After the opening, Margaret does the Bible story and asks questions.  When the story is over, Laurie plays a video clip pertaining to the Bible story.  We close with a prayer.

Our Sunday school only lasts about 20 minutes or so.

Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost

Paul says, “Live the life you received in baptism.” Christ has given and taught us a new way to live which is at odds with the sinful world (Ephesians 4:20). “Put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in the true righteousness and holiness” (Ephesians 4:24). Jesus has put the old self—which embraced false idols and viewed sensual pleasures as the ultimate good—to death in baptism and raised us to a new life. This life reflects the likeness of Christ and walks in a manner that does not pursue selfish glory or pride of place but trusts God for all things and sacrifices for the sake of the neighbor in love. The baptized, those rescued and redeemed by God’s grace alone through faith in Jesus Christ alone, are given an entirely new life to live, an entirely new way to walk. “Walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us” (Ephesians 5:2).

This weekend we dedicate the commitment we have made for our treasures. Although the ‘cards’ only indicate the financial commitment we have made, we also commit our time and talents to the Lord. God has called every Christian to special roles where we live, in the Church and in community. In each of these roles, we act as the “mask of God” in blessing our neighbors and friends. Each of these commitments makes a claim on our presence and our resources. Our Stewardship helps us to share God’s Word with others. Praying for others is one way God wants us to live our lives. 

1st Reading

1 Kings 18:1-8

2nd Reading

Ephesians 4:17-5:2

The Gospel of the Day

John 6:35-51


Father of our risen, ascended and glorified Lord, who has promised that those who believe in Christ as the true and living bread will never hunger nor thirst: By Your Holy Spirit, keep us steadfast in faith. Give us grace to live out our baptismal lives in repentance and forgiveness. Keep our eyes ever focused on the life that never ends, knowing that You will raise us up on the Last Day; through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
