St. Paul’s SS has something for everyone! Come check us out on Sunday mornings at 11:30 on St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church Facebook Page for our live stream.
Check out our most recent lessons:
Jeremiah 20:7-13, Jeremiah had fire in his bones:
Jeremiah learned the life of a prophet was not easy. With Israel divided into two countries (Israel in the north and Judah in the south), Jeremiah warned the people to follow God. The people worshipped their idols. He warned against Assyria taking over in the north and Babylon in the south. Jeremiah was challenged and cried to God for inspiration. We had a geometry challenge. We had a two-loop paper chain. We had to cut them to become one square.
Jeremiah 28:5-9 -29:11:
We continued to learn about Jeremiah. Jeremiah continued to struggle when talking to God but remained strong when he talked to the Israelites. He kept that fire in his bones. In this lesson, we met Hannaniah. We used eggs. We cracked open Jeremiah. He looked as you might expect – like an egg (clean and pure of heart). Hannaniah’s egg was full of blue egg whites. He did not follow God’s word.
Matthew 13:1-9 and 18-23, the Parable of the Sower:
In this activity, an apple represented the world. We cut away ¾ of the apple because 75% represents water. We cut away some more to represent the mountain ranges, icecaps, and neighborhoods. We multiplied fractions. We were left with 1/32nd of an apple. We cut off the skin. This is how much of the world, we have for farming. The sower threw his seeds into four kinds of soil. Only the rich soil produced the best plants. God wants us to live richly in him.
Matthew 13:24-30 and 36-43, the Parable of the Weeds:
This was Children’s Time this week! We compared sweetened and unsweetened apple sauce with each other along with different flavors of m&m’s and an organic and a regularly grown pepper. Although they look the same, they taste different. After a sower planted wheat, an enemy comes and plants different seeds. They were weeds. May we follow God’s word!
