Music Time and Sunday School: 2nd and 3rd Grade
September 20 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am EDT
The Second and Third Grade Sunday School class will meet with Pastor Megan to discuss, learn, and do fun activities together on Zoom, based on The Beatitudes, including drawing, scavenger hunts, movement, discussions, music, prayer, and much more.
Each Thursday, parents will receive an email with a video of Ms. Alex leading Music Time as well as a video story of the scripture for Sunday with Pastor Megan and friends.
We will be exploring The Beatitudes; using An Illustrated Curriculum created by the writers of Compassion Camp, which was a big success with our online Sunday School this Summer!
The Beatitudes are a series of blessings and promises declared by Jesus during his Sermon on the Mount. The Beatitudes are foundational to Jesus’ vision of the realm of God. Jesus listed nine ways people are “blessed.” To be “blessed” meant to be happy in the fullest. People often thought happiness happened because of their situation or circumstances (or how life was going for them); people still think that today.
The kind of people Jesus described as “blessed” or “happy” seemed strange. Jesus said happy or blessed people are those we might usually think of as unlucky or having lots of trouble. Jesus’ topsy-turvy teaching showed them they are loved, they are special, and they are not alone. He encouraged them to see this in one another, too. Jesus blessed people through his actions and words. He gave them hope.
