OLD vs. NEW
A New Year's Bible Lesson

Discussion starter: Weíre welcoming in another New Year. Let's discuss OLD and NEW.

1) What new things did you receive for Christmas? or did you meet new people, make new friends, etc.?
2) Is new always better than old? Why or why not?
3) How might old be better than new? (Old friends, loved ones, storybooks, pets, etc.)
4) How is new sometimes better than old?†

Godís Word, the Bible, is divided into old and newóthe Old Testament and the New Testament. The word testament means covenant or an agreement. The Old and New Testaments are Godís written Word, his agreement with his people, meaning it is for those who trust and follow him. The Old Testament was written before Jesus came to earth. Itís the story of Godís people, prophecies, and promises . . .

We have a very small church (28 to 30 people total on average) and it is hard to find programs to do for VBS. So when I went looking for something that I could do with a group of kids, the Prayer of Jesus stood out. There are six, two-hour lessons and we did a lesson a day. The book has game and craft ideas to go with each lesson. . . . I am already looking into buying more books from Sunday School Network. I feel that learning to pray together as a group, a family, we have grown even closer to God. Thank you, ~ April G.

I am so thankful for finding your site. I teach, but need lots of help and ideas. I so want to teach these little ones so they know Jesus as Savior. Thank you so very much!

You have fantastic resources. My favorite is your lessons on the 10 Commandments. Although I taught it sometime ago, the kids still use the hand signals. Keep up the good work. ~ Frances Kemp

Get ready for the New Year!

God's New Year's celebration, the Feast of Trumpets, is quite different than our secular New Year's celebration. The Feast of Trumpets marks the beginning of the civil or national year for Israel; it occurs during September or October. This feast is known today as Rosh Hashanah, but it has little if any comparison to the Biblical celebration. Although the Bible doesnít say this, the Feast of Trumpets is believed to celebrate the creation of the world, and specifically when God created humankind on the sixth day. Trumpets were to be blown during this feast, calling people to wake up spiritually and repent of their sins. And in this regard, New Year's resolutions of today might find their similarity. For example, promising to quit a bad habit or destructive lifestyle, deciding to eat more healthfully, resolving to treat others with kindness, and turning from sinful behaviors to draw near to God, are good beginnings for a new year whether it's in September, October, or January!

New Year's Bible Lesson for Children:
God's Resolutions


Begin class time discussing the meaning of a resolution---the root word, "resolute," means determined, firm, purposeful, strong-willed, courageously steadfast. Then play God's Resolutions, below.

When people make New Year's resolutions they are stating firm promises to accomplish something good in their lives. New Year's resolutions are sometimes just silly fun, like promising to never eat Brussel Sprouts! Most times resolutions are more meaningful, such as promising to quit a sinful habit to improve your health, or to control your tongue so as not to offend others, or to do something helpful for others. But, more often than not, New Year's Resolutions are not easily kept. So what's wrong? Why is it so difficult to make and keep our promises to do better for ourselves and others? 

If you're not a child of God, changing sinful habits is very difficult, if not impossible. So don't wait another minute, start the New Year out right. Ask . . . get this New Year's Lesson for Kids.

I appreciate these ideas for Sunday School . . . they come in very handy. ~Tessa, East Africa

Its hard for a small church like ours to afford Bible curriculum and yours is so affordable and fun! ~ Julie

Our church used one of your
children's skits with great success . . . Thank you for your ideas and your website.  
~ Lynn Rhodes

I just want to say that I am very thankful for this site. I have
found a lot of neat ideas for Sunday school and youth group ~ Kim 

I just wanted to let you know what a blessing this website has been to me. I am teaching children's church on Sunday nights and had ran out of  ideas to use. I prayed that God would give me some sources. Well, He did, alright!  This website!  I was up until almost 2:00 A.M. one night searching it out. What a wonderful site!  I love it!  It has such great ideas.  Thank you so much!

[The teacher's newsletter] is an awesome resource for anyone that works with kids! You never know what will come from it. I met a new friend in South Africa and the Lord is doing a great outreach there---so many children have been reached and so many teachers trained and given resources, and it started with this connection. 
~ PTL for this site.

I appreciate your Bible-4-Life series . . . I purchased all of the books that you offered. They have been absolutely wonderful! The kids respond so well . . . ~ K. Eriksen

 

Reviews: We'd love to hear from you too! Submit your review.

Your products are excellent. We have purchased several for our Kids Church and been delighted with every one . . . the Lighthouse was brilliant! ~ Margaret J., Australia.

I was intrigued with the Amazing Parable Race description [and purchased it]. It allows me to add another resource to my "bag of tricks" for very little additional cost . . . huge plus! I have many of your resources and appreciate the quality of the materials you provide. For a broadly graded class, I find I can easily reach the youngest and the oldest (Preschool through 5th grade) children. Thank you! 
~ Lauren F.

We used the Parables of Jesus as a starting point for our neighborhood kids Bible study and adapted the lessons to suit our needs. The lessons provided fun and easy ways to teach the parables. ~ Michle

Totally love your newsletters; I use them for our church youth group. God Bless You! ~ Denise

The folks at Sunday School Network are a pleasure to work with; I highly recommend them. . . Sunday School Network is a company you can trust. ~ Glen B.
