Welcome! Below you will find a weekly Sunday School lesson that connects to the weekly scripture and sermon. At the end, there is a link to the resources, such as a coloring page or prayer, that relate to the lesson. We hope your family will gather together for worship and spend some time engaging in conversation and activities to share the story of God’s grace.

Lesson for the week of October 18
This week we will be exploring Psalm 5 and Psalm 51. The supporting scripture is Romans 6: 5-15.
- Read Psalm 5: 1-3 together. Talk about why prayer is important.
- Here is a sample morning prayer. Consider creating a family morning prayer. I thank you, Lord, for morning light. I thank you for the world so bright. May everything I do today be pleasing to Thee, Lord, I pray.
- Why is trust in God important?
- How does God protect you with his shield of love?
Dear Father, we know that you can see what is in our heart and we know that there are some things there that shouldn’t be there. Create a clean heart in us, O God. Amen.
