Family Sunday School
Transfiguration of Jesus
In our story today, Jesus was revealed as God’s Son, the Messiah. Two times in our story we hear that Jesus is headed to the cross. Next week, we enter a season called Lent, where we remember Jesus’ journey to the cross for our sins. Jesus was revealed in glory through the transfiguration. As we enter Lent, we remember that Jesus’ journey from glory on the mountain to glory again at Easter goes through the cross. You may wish to say a short prayer asking God to draw you closer during this time of Lent as we remember Jesus’ journey to the cross.
He is the Light
Light of the World
1 2 3, Jesus is Alive
UPSIDE DOWN HEARTS: Let children cut out various sizes of hearts and glue onto a piece of construction paper UPSIDE DOWN so the top will be the mountain. On the upside-down hearts, children can write GOD LOVES US AND RENEWS OUR STRENGTH!
LICORICE MOUNTAINS: Give each child some cherry or black licorice sticks to form mountains (after washing hands, of course). After each child tells something they have learned about our lesson today, they can EAT their mountain shape of licorice! (Provide another snack for the children who don’t care for licorice.)
Dear God, thank you for creating everything in the world. Thank you for creating us. Help us remember to love each other, and all creation, too. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
