This week all Sunday School classes met to enjoy a Congregational Breakfast together. Next week, we’ll be starting a new series for our middle school and high school students.
Summer SuBS: God at the Movies
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12:1-2, NIV)
Throughout the school year on Sunday or Wednesday nights, we do bible studies called “Media Minutes.” Each week we take a look at something from culture–a commercial, music videos, clips from TV or movies–and examine to see if it tells us God’s Truth, the World’s Lies, or about Human Longings.
This summer, we’re going to be bringing that approach to Sunday school with a series called “God at the Movies.” Each week, one of our fine teachers will bring out a clip (or two) from a movie past or present–like Signs, It’s a Wonderful Life, or Bruce Almighty–and discuss what biblical truth it can teach us, complete with popcorn and movie candy! This series will be combined for middle school and high school students. For select movies we’ll also offer a full screening during the week leading up to the lesson.
