Our preschoolers took part in their first recitation Sunday of the new year. They all did a fantastic job reciting the answers to questions 14 & 15. They also got to enjoy snacks as they celebrated their accomplishments. The children continued their study and memorization Psalm 119:105a.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
Thanks to Tom & Cindy Darnell for teaching these past for weeks! Liz Jarvis will be teaching the preschoolers for the next rotation starting this Sunday, February 8.
Our older children have been learning some really big truths lately, which continued this past Sunday, February 1. The children studied the term justification and learned that it means God forgives all our sins and declares us to be righteous. They also learned this is only possible because Christ lived a sinless life and stands in our place. They were supposed to also recite answers to questions 36-54, but because of the intensity of the lesson and the length of the questions, they were not able to finish their recitation. Parents, please continue to work with your children this week because they will do their recitation first thing during class on Sunday morning, February 8. And they also learned three new questions and answers last Sunday, so now they will recite answers 36-57.
55. What does God the Father guarantee in the covenant of grace? To justify and sanctify all those for whom Christ died.
56. How does God justify you? God forgives all my sins and accepts me as righteous through Christ.
57. How does God sanctify you? God makes me more and more holy in heart and conduct.
Thanks to Matt & Laura Slagel for teaching our elementary-aged girls these past four weeks. The next teaching rotation begins this Sunday, February 8 with Jason & Lori Moore leading the class.
