Sunday School Update
Dear Sunday School Parents,
Sunday School is off to a great start! Last month we began telling one of the two major stories of the Christian tradition: the Story of Salvation. We tell the story with 7 Cs: Creation, Crisis, Covenant, Christ, Church, Calling, and Coming Kingdom. Last month we heard and responded to the story of Creation and this month move along to the story of Crisis.
To tell the story of the Crisis, we’ll hear and respond to the story of Adam and Eve and the serpent in Genesis 3, as well as reflect upon the Confession of Sin, which we recite at least weekly during the Eucharist.
- On October 8, we’ll hear and respond to the story in Genesis 3 as it is told in the Jesus Storybook Bible, which is available in the “children’s library” in the room near our main entrance. You might invite your child(ren) to tell you the story using his/her art project.
- On October 15, we’ll begin memorizing the Confession of Sin and talking through what Christians mean when we speak of “sin.” We will invite children to continue working on memorizing the Confession at home and invite you to work with them.
- October 22, we’ll discuss why Adam and Eve hide from God in Genesis 3 after they sin, and how the Confession of Sin in our weekly liturgies invites us not to hide our sins.
We’re glad to partner with you to help our children learn to hear Christ’s call to them and to respond. As always, please be in touch with Adrienne Cizek (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. Thank you!
