Sundays at 9 am
A congregation-wide journey through the Bible in one year.
Building families of faith in a family of faith.
LESSON 9: 10/17/21 Exodus 20: 1-21 “ A Loving Law”. Months into their wilderness wanderings, the Israelites arrive in the wilderness of Sinai. God comes to the mountain in clouds and thunder – fire and smoke – as He establishes His covenant with His people through Moses, His chosen intermediary. There on the mountain, God gives Moses His Ten Commandments.
LESSONS 7&8: 10/10/21 Next week we will be taking on two lessons: 1) Exodus 2:23 – 3:22: “Fiery Directions” – Miraculously rescued through the waters of the Nile by Pharoah’s daughter, Moses escaped the condemnation pronounced on the other Hebrew boys. Leaving behind his life of privilege, he flees to Midian, where he encounters the living God in a burning bush. There God directs and equips Moses to rescue His chosen people from their slavery in Egypt. 2) Exodus 14: “The Egypt Exit” – Tells of the ten terrible plagues and how Pharaoh relents and releases the Israelites to worship in the wilderness. Pharaoh’s army pursues them when he realizes they will not be returning. The people cry out to God when they realize they are stuck between Pharaoh’ army and the Red Sea and Moses stretches his hand over the sea as God parts the water allowing the people to pass through. As Pharaoh’s army tries to follow the sea closes and no one survives.
LESSONS 5&6: 10/03/21 1) Genesis 28: 10-22 “A Promising Dream” – Jacob undeservedly receives his father’s blessing – he and his offspring will dwell in the land of Canaan. As his father nears the end and Jacob fears for his life he sets out for his uncle’s house. Along the way, he dreams of a ladder reaching to heaven, with the Lord Himself standing at the top. 2) Genesis 37; 45: 1-10, 50:20 “Hope in Hardship” is the account of Jacob’s favorite son, Joseph – the unusual timeline of his life includes being despised by his brothers, being sold into slavery, attaining success and then losing it to false accusations, being imprisoned, and serving in the court of Pharoah.
LESSON 4: 9/26/21 Genesis 12: 1-9: This lesson, “A Call to Action”, Abram responds to God’s calling as he leaves his idolatry and homeland to follow the one true God. Abram takes his wife, Sarai, and nephew Lot as they journey to the land of Canaan. The Lord’s appearance prompts Abram to build an altar, celebrating God’s promise to give this land to his descendants.
LESSON 3: 9/19/21 Genesis 6:11-22; 7:11-24; 8:13-22: Widespread sin and corruption filled the earth, but “Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD” (Genesis 6:8). In today’s lesson, “A New Beginning”, students will learn how, following God’s command, Noah and his family began constructing a massive ark, with provisions for an extended journey. At the Lord’s direction, each animal kind boards the ark, along with Noah and his family. The fountains of deep open and rain falls for forty days, swallowing up every living thing. Through the flood, God keeps Noah’s family safe and lands them on a mountain.
LESSON 1 & 2 Summaries – Sunday, September 12th
1: The lesson this week is “A Mighty Wonder”. In six days – through His spoken Word alone – the heavenly Father creates a universe so vast and complex it defies our limited human understanding. Humankind, the crown of His creation, made in His own image, comes to be through the intimate work of His hands and with His own breath. Discuss the wonders of God’s creation with your family.
2: Today, we will study “The Fall and a Promise”. The slithery serpent caused Eve to doubt God’s Word with one simple question: “Did God actually say…?” (Genesis 3:1). Seeking to gain wisdom, Eve and Adam rebel against their Creator. Suddenly aware of their condition before God, they vainly attempt to hide their sinful exposure. With sin comes punishment that is just; yet our heavenly Father does not leave humankind without hope. Instead, He promises One who will come to rescue His people from the jaws of death and Satan. As a family, discuss the importance of God’s promise of the Savior.
