Studying God's Word
This quarter will focus on what it means to become devoted to God’s Word. Using stories and passages from both the Old and New Testaments, children will study the importance of God’s Word. They will learn about those who followed God’s Word and those who failed to obey it. They will find out about Jesus and God’s Word, and they will discover what it means to hide God’s Word in their hearts and live by it.
In Unit 1 children learn that God’s promise of salvation and his plan for his people is found only in his Word, the Bible.
Unit 2 focuses on Old Testament personalities and their relationship to God and his Word. The children learn that Asa and Ezra trusted God and his Word, and that God blessed them. They also find out that Eli and his sons disobeyed God’s law, and they were punished for their sins.
Unit 3 is about the Lord Jesus Christ. He fulfilled God’s promise by coming to earth to be the Savior. He loved and obeyed God’s Word and taught it to others. Jesus commanded his people, the church, to continue to preach and teach God’s Word.
The fourth unit focuses on how we are to live by God’s Word. Children learn that it is important to listen to God’s Word, memorize God’s Word, and obey God’s Word. Children discover that God equips his people for service and produces the fruit of the Spirit in their lives.
By the end of the quarter your students should be able to explain why God’s Word is important and what it means for their lives.
