26th October

This week, we talked about how the Bible can be used to correct us when we make mistakes.

Our memory verse was Job 5:17

Blessed is the one whom God corrects; so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty. (Job 5:17)

The Junior Class looked at the story of Jonah and the whale. Jonah tried to run away when God asked him to preach at Nineveh. His experience showed him that he needed to obey God.

19th October

Many of the children were away this week, as it is the Edinburgh Schools' half-term holiday.

We watched a short video by AMOKArts Creative Arts Ministry about Matthew 7:1-5.

We talked about what Jesus meant when he said that you must take the plank out of your own eye before you try to take the speck out of your brother's eye.

The children then had a go at drawing and painting their own pictures.

 Thank you to Terri for helping us out this week.

12th October

This week, we talked about how the Bible can be used to rebuke. "Rebuke" is a word that we don't use much now. To rebuke someone means to criticise them.

The Junior Class looked at Luke 18:15-17, where Jesus rebukes (or criticises) his disciples for trying to stop the children bothering him.

The children did some artwork which reflected Jesus' love for each of them.

5th October

Today we started a four-week series based on 2 Timothy 3:16:

"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness"

(New International Version - UK)

This week, the Junior Class looked at different kinds of books, for example, a dictionary, a textbook and a fiction book. We talked about what all these books were for. We then talked about how the Bible is made up of many different books, and how they help us learn in different ways. We talked about the parables that we'd looked at in previous weeks and how Jesus used these to teach.
