31st May

Today, the Junior Class looked at the story of Isaac and Rebekah's twin sons, Jacob and Esau. You can read about this in Genesis 25:19 - 27:45.

We watched a film of this story, provided by Crossroads Kids' Club.

Our craft activity involved making a collage of a bowl of stew, which was significant in this story, as Esau sold his birthright (a special blessing reserved for the eldest son) to Jacob for a bowl of stew. Thank you to April's Homemaking for this idea.

17th and 24th May

17th May

The Junior Class talked about how Abraham and Sarah had to wait for God's timing for their son, Isaac, to be born. You can read about this in Genesis 18-21.

24th May

When Isaac was older, God tested Abraham by asking him to sacrifice Isaac to him. Abraham obeyed God's instructions, proving that he loved God more than anything else. Abraham didn't have to sacrifice Isaac in the end as God provided a ram for the sacrifice. You can read about this in Genesis 22:1-19

Thank you, Muriel, for leading these classes.

26th April - 17th May

On 26th April, we started a series of studies on the people mentioned in Hebrews 11. These people were all mentioned in this letter because they had faith.

26th April
The Junior Class talked about the story of Abel and his brother, Cain. Cain was jealous because God accepted Abel's offering, but not his, and he killed his brother. 

3rd May
We talked about Noah. Noah had faith, because he built an ark (a boat), just as God asked him to.

10th May
We talked about Abraham, and how when God asked him to take his wife and everything he had to another country, he obeyed.
