Mar 14 Kidz Sunday School

We are using The Gospel Project Bible Study curriculum for our online Preschool/K and Elementary Sunday School classes.  We are going through the Bible chronologically on a journey to discover how the gospel unfolds.

We are currently studying the New Testament and going through lessons from <Volume 10: The Mission Beings>.  You can find the songs for this quarter's lessons on Spotify® for Preschool-K and Grade 1-6.

Below is a summary of this week's Sunday School lesson for the parents.  If you have registered your child(ren) for Kidz Sunday School, you can access the full lesson and resources on the CCAC KidMin Resources group page (log in to see the resources list) to use with your family at home.

Unit 30, Session 2: Paul Met Jesus (Acts 8-9)

DEAR PARENTS
Saul was no stranger to religion. He grew up in a religious household. He was a devout Jew who was born in Tarsus (Phil. 3:5) and inherited his Roman citizenship from his father. So when people began talking about this man named Jesus and claiming that He was the promised Messiah, Saul was defensive.

Saul believed strongly in the Jewish faith of his ancestors. He violently persecuted God’s church and tried to destroy it. (Gal. 1:13-14) He dragged believers from their houses and put them in prison. He approved of the stoning of Stephen, the first Christian martyr. Saul thought he was doing the right thing by defending Judaism, but God’s purposes could not be stopped. As Saul was on his way to arrest believers in Damascus, the Lord stopped him in his tracks.

Jesus revealed Himself to Saul, and Saul was never the same. He was struck blind and led into Damascus, where a believer named Ananias placed his hands on Saul. Suddenly, Saul could see again. Saul was convinced that Jesus is Lord. Saul later described the experience as being like dying and receiving a new life. (Gal. 2:20; 2 Cor. 5:17)

God had a purpose and a plan for Saul. He had set Saul apart before Saul was even born. (Gal. 1:15) God said, “This man is my chosen instrument to take my name to Gentiles, kings, and Israelites” (Acts 9:15).

Jesus changed Saul’s life. As you share with your teach, clarify that conversion happens when a person recognizes his sin, repents, believes in Jesus, and confesses Jesus as Savior and Lord. Jesus changes a person’s heart, and as a result, his life is changed too.

Jesus appeared to Paul and changed him inside and out. Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners. (1 Timothy 1:15) Jesus called Paul, who was once an enemy to Christians, to spend the rest of his life telling people the gospel and leading them to trust in Jesus.
