Sunday School Unit 2, November 3rd-24th, Blessings

Posted by: on Oct 28, 2013 | No Comments

Our second Sunday School unit will again focus on St. Francis, this time learning about and celebrating his understanding of how blessed we All are by God.
In this season of plenty and thanksgiving our children will work with the understandings and questions below.  We look forward to having them with us.

On November 3, the children will first come with their families to the sanctuary and then, following a story from David, begin their Sunday School lessons.

We are all blessed by God.

There is more to learn from Saint Francis

November 3, 10, 17, 24


  • There are many ways in which each of us is blessed by God.

  • Blessings take many forms.

  •  I can be a part of blessing another person.

  • I can be deliberately thankful for my blessings.


  • How did Saint Francis’s understanding of being blessed change from when he was a young man to his older years?
    How was Saint Francis poor?  How was Saint Francis rich?

  • How did Saint Francis bestow blessings on others?

  • How am I blessed?  What does that mean to me?

  • What can I do to help others feel blessed?  How can I be a blessing to this world?

We begin the first unit of our Sunday School curriculum celebrating the life and work of Saint Francis.  The curriculum is appropriate for children from the age of 5 to age 11.  In total there are seven units throughout the church year.  We look forward to sharing this learning with your children and welcome them into our church.
Please read on to gain an understanding of the scope of this first unit.
We are all God’s Creation

“Pleased to meet you, Saint Francis”

September 15, 22, 29, October 6

We hope that the children will understand that:

  • We are all God’s children—flowers and trees and birds and bees and of course all of the people.
  • We are all connected to each other, people to all living things and all people to each other.
  • We humans have lots in common with the other living things on our planet, but we have also been given special gifts [the ability to think and reason and ask questions] and because of this we are responsible for taking care of our world.

Questions to guide our study

What did Saint Francis believe about God’s Creation?

How did Saint Francis take care of his world?

How are you a part of God’s creation?

How can you help to take care of our beautiful world?
