HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL OUR WONDERFUL MOMS!
Hello Sunday School Students!!! This week our theme is: Gospel reading for Sunday Mark 15:43-47, 16:1-8 Epistle reading: Acts 6:1-7 Sunday of the Myrrh-Bearing Women
This week our Epistle reading is about the early days of our church. I know you have heard the words disciple and apostle when we talk about the 12 people surrounding Christ as He taught about God's love. The word apostle comes from the Greek word "apostolos" meaning- one who is sent out. Disciple means someone who learns (from the Greek word "mathetis".) Jesus had a teacher/student relationship with the Disciples, but after Christ's death the Disciples became the messengers of God's word. The Epistle reading, Acts 6:1-7 is about how wise people full of faith and the Holy Spirit were chosen to spread the Word of God. "So the word of God spread and the number of disciples grew rapidly"
What can you do to help spread the word of God? What actions can you do to show God's love?
Lower Grades (k-5): God's Love in Action! Now is the time to start planting seeds to grow this summer; the nights are warmer and plants should grow pretty quickly. Plant a seed and after germination start measuring it daily. For every inch it grows you must do one nice thing for someone else. For example: Your plant grew 2 inches in one day! Think of 2 tasks to show someone you love them. It could be something like, put your siblings' toys away for them and take out the trash for dad! I'm sure you can come up with great ways to show God's love in action!
Upper Grades (6-12): Be the Bee #175 Our New Life in Christ-This is a little out of order, but speaks about the books of Acts which is our Epistle reading this week.
Family: Christos Anesti! Christ is Risen! If your family does not know Christos Anesti, now is a great time to learn it! Sing it before dinner every night until Ascension.
