Lessons for September
September 11: The Days of Creation “In the beginning…”The lesson today is from the very first line of Genesis. The story of creation, begins to trace God’s elusive presence with God’s People. With the gift of each day, God said, “It is good”. We will spend some time remembering what was created on those first six days. We will also spend some time thinking about the seventh day when even God rested and gave us the gift of a day to remember all the gifts from the other day.
September 18: The Great Family. The lesson today will be told using the Desert Box. We will enter the story about Abram and Sarai, (God later renamed them Abraham and Sarah) who left their home and family for a place that God would show them. They found God was with them everywhere they went, not just in this place or that place. God promised them that he would make of them a “Great Family” and God did keep that promise. Abraham and Sarah began a great family of many generations including us.
September 25: The Holy Family. In this lesson we will enter into the story of the Mother Mary, the Father Joseph, and Jesus, who we met both as a baby and a risen savior. We learn that, in both forms, Jesus was, as he has been since, “reaching out to give the whole world a hug”.
