Apr 25 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 11: The Church United>.  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 31, Session 4: The Hall of Faith (Hebrews 11)

DEAR PARENTS
It is common to think of faith as something that is just within us—trust and confidence in God. While that is surely part of it, faith doesn’t stop there. Faith starts inside of us and always leads to action.

The writer of the Book of Hebrews wanted to explain the fullness of faith to the early Jewish Christians. One of the best ways he could do this was to walk through examples of how men and women in the Old Testament had proven to be faithful. The result is Hebrews 11, often known as the Hall of Faith.

Abel had faith when he gave an offering to God, and God accepted his offering. Noah had faith. He believed God when God told him to build an ark to rescue his family.

Abraham had faith when God called him to leave his home. Abraham’s wife Sarah had faith when she trusted God to give her a family even though she was too old to have children. Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, and Moses had faith too. Rahab had faith when she hid the Israelite spies in Jericho.

All of these people trusted God, and so did many others. Having faith was not easy. Many suffered, and they died before God’s greatest promise—the arrival of Jesus—came true, but they believed that God had a wonderful plan. God was pleased with them because they trusted Him.

This week, share the examples of these heroes of faith to help your kids understand faith in action. We can and should learn from these examples; that is why God gave them to us in Hebrews 11. However, emphasize that every person in this list was a sinner in need of salvation. Each of these heroes needed a greater hero. Point your kids to Jesus, the perfect hero who rescues us from sin.

God kept His promise to send the Messiah—His own Son, Jesus—to rescue people from sin. Jesus is the true hero of the Bible. He gives us faith. We can look to Him because in Him, all of God’s promises will come true.
