Sunday School-homeschool style

We've not been able to get to church the last few weeks, and while we do Bible study each night, something was missing. The church we attend now has a lot of great features, but there is no Sunday School. So it's been months since the boys have been to Sunday School.

We needed to fix that.

Today we studied:

1 Samuel 2:2 NIV

“There is no one holy like the Lord ; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.

 To really help bring the meaning of the Scripture home, we looked at the key words of the verse and gave definitions, synonyms, and words associated with the key word. 

Then we compared the columns and talked about how each of the words have something in common. Our conclusion was that God is our Rock, because He is our foundation. He is strong, powerful, holy, perfect, and heavenly. Both of the boys acknowledged that God is the Rock of their lives!

It's just not Sunday School without a craft. A few days ago, we had traveled to the creek near our home and found some really great rocks. The plan was to paint them and make rock critters for our garden. We didn't get that done because of one thing and another, so I thought we could do a Sunday School craft instead. 

Jesus is my Rock craft

paper towels

After discussing why Jesus is our Rock, paint a reminder to keep at home or in the garden. (Note: if making these for outdoor use, make sure to spray with a sealant to protect the paint from the elements.)

My guys each made one rock bearing Jesus' or God's name, and a couple of rocks praising Him in some way.  
 Anthony declares God is his Rock!

 Jerimiah painted God's amazing Creation.

 Jerimiah's rock declares Jesus is his Rock! (It's a bit abstract.)

 The tall rock in the back is Jerimiah's depiction of the cross, with the words holy and love written on the sides. 

 I like to craft, too!
