This page is for all those who never thought they would end up being Sunday School teachers!
I'm sure many of your churches (like mine!) are not meeting for the next few weeks (at least) while the health professionals try to help contain the spread of the Coronavirus.
And that means...there is no Sunday School! So I want to help you whether you are a parent, a teacher, or somewhere in between. Every Wednesday during these rather strange times I will upload a new "quarantine Sunday School lesson" to this page. These lessons are perfect for leading a child in a fun, but important conversation about what is happening in the world and what God's Word has to say about it!
Quarantine Sunday School Lessons
God is in control of disease
"I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but it seems like all around us everything is cancelling, huh? First it’s school… Then, it’s some churches or businesses. It feels like everyone has just retreated inside their homes and is looking out at the world like it’s a little scary to go outside...."
All Under Control
Did you know that every store in America seems to be out of toilet paper? People are freaking out and the shelves in the grocery stores are bare! It reminds me of when there’s an earthquake/tornado/hurricane and we are without power for a few days and everyone rushes to go get more stuff than they need to make it through!
You and the flowers
What are some things you need to grow strong and healthy? Besides vegetables, you know I am ALWAYS telling you about those vegetables!
I want you to stop and think about the flowers outside. Once you plant a seed in the ground, what happens? It gets sunlight and nutrients from the soil and it grows, right?
One big disappointment
You know what’s funny? A few weeks ago, if you would have asked me how I would like being home all day and able to lounge around, I probably would have said that sounded like a dream! But, here we are, only two weeks into social distancing....
A Muddy Mess
A long time ago, people used to believe that if you were sick or disabled, it was because God made you that way as a punishment. They assumed that people who were deaf couldn’t hear because God was punishing them, or that people who couldn’t walk were being punished, too.
There are a lot of different ideas floating around about where and how the coronavirus started, aren’t there? Some people say it started in a lab, and other people say that it started with a bat. Everyone agrees, though, that it started in China.
When was the last time you saw God do something really big and really powerful?
Think about this...God is doing big and powerful stuff all the time!
He’s making the sun come out every morning. He wakes up the birds, and makes sure the ocean water stops exactly where it should. He helps your brain think and your heart beat. All of these are pretty amazing and powerful things God is doing, but we hardly ever think about them.
What would you do if a doctor came to you and said, “you know, this coronavirus is a really bad and dangerous thing for a lot of people, but you can fix that!”
What would you say? Would you want to help?
Well, what if the doctor said the way you could make it all better was to be injected with the virus yourself?
When you think of Jesus, what words come to your mind? Let’s write them down together.
Well, when I think of Jesus, the word ‘servant’ comes to my mind. There are a lot of times in the Bible when Jesus acted as a servant to others. He even said it’s better to serve than to be served.
You know what I’ve noticed the past few weeks? Everyone has very different needs when it comes to being alone or being with other people, right? Some people in our family like not having as many people around right now. There are other people in our family who can’t wait to get out and be around lots of people again!
