Start from the top and work your way through the whole lesson. They are designed to be engaging and really help you dive into what main ideas are being taught this week! Enjoy!
Family Activity Idea for God is Love
The first activity I would like to share with you this week is for families. This would work perfect for an FHE activity!
This week we discuss that god is love. I was inspired by this idea in the Come Follow Me Manual:
Are there any spiritual dangers that have “crept in” to our lives and family? (Jude 1:4). How can we follow Jude’s admonition to “earnestly contend for the faith” and resist these dangers? (Jude 1:3). What can we do to ensure that “peace, and love, be multiplied” in our family? (Jude 1:2).
God is light, and God is love.
The phrase “Peace and Love, be multiplied” stood out to me so I create this fun 3d Heart activity! You can find the full instructions below!
Primary Lesson Idea for God is Love
Ask the children to name things that produce light. Help them understand the benefits of light, like helping plants grow, allowing us to see, and giving warmth. Invite the children to take turns shining a flashlight at a picture of Jesus Christ as they say, “God is light” (1 John 1:5). Testify that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ can bring light into our lives when we obey the commandments.
Use the free printable’s I have created to share the different ways that God is Light with your class.
Sunday School Lesson Ideas
Lastly, To help you teach ” We must fortify ourselves against false teachings” in Sunday school, I have created these two work pages. This will help them identify what “antichrist” means according to Jude it will also help them think about the challenges they face today and how they can overcome them.
