Grade 2/Grade 3

Winter Quarter

Lesson #5 -- The God Man

Large Group Teachers, "Jesus is God and man" is a complex idea to try to communicate to small children.
Note the simplicity of the teaching, and try to keep yourself from getting too complex in your explanations.

This lesson calls for use of a Knock-Out Board.
The Kindergarten/First Grade curriculum calls for a Knock-Out Board in Lesson 13 of Fall Quarter, so you may
want to check if the K/1 teacher at your church has already built a board you could use.

Small Group Leaders, as you review the Bible verse for this week, "I and the Father are one," John 10:30, remind the
kids that the "I" in that verse is Jesus. This statement comes from Jesus' perspective.

To create anticipation and excitement, change the look of your room from unit to unit.

Lesson #6 -- The Lamb Of God

Note that today, Small Group comes before Large Group.

Small Group Leaders, the intention of Small Group today is different than it usually is.
Kids usually learn content and then come to Small Group to apply it to their lives.
Today, kids will learn the content in Small Groups, then go to Large Group to understand what "Lamb of God" really means.

Large Group Teachers, "Jesus as the Lamb of God" is another complex subject for kids to understand.
Enlarge the Lamb of God signs so all kids in your classroom are able to see. This will help them understand your explanation.

When you "cast vision," you are painting a picture of what your ministry could look like.
Discuss the goals, purpose, and direction of the ministry, as well as what the day-to-day will look like.
Vision "leaks," and people start to forget it, so remind them of your vision throughout the year.
As you continue casting the vision, it will spread to your pastor, volunteers, parents, church board, and congregation.

On the "Leading Children to Christ" audio tape included in each kit, David Stahl, references Appendix A and B
information from handouts that were distributed during the recorded session.
