We’re starting Unit 22 THE MIRACLES OF JESUS this coming Sunday and it will take us through August 27th.
Our memory verse for this unit is: “No one has ever seen God. The one and only Son, who is himself God and is at the Father’s side–he has revealed him.” John 1:18 (CSB)

Last week (July 23, 2023) we finished Unit 21 and learned that WE ARE SAVED BY FAITH IN JESUS by reading Hebrews 11.
- KEY PASSAGE: Hebrews 11:6 (ESV)
- BIG PICTURE QUESTION: How can we be saved? We are only saved through faith in Jesus.
- CHRIST CONNECTION: Peter understood that he was a sinner and recognized that Jesus is God. He responded to Jesus’ grace and kindness by following Him. When we understand that Jesus is God and that we are sinners, we can turn to Him for forgiveness and follow Him by faith.
This week (July 30, 2023) we start Unit 22 and will learn that JESUS CALMED THE STORM by reading Matt 8, Mark 4, and Luke 8.
- KEY PASSAGE: John 1:18 (CSB)
- BIG PICTURE QUESTION: Is Jesus God or a human? As the Son of God, Jesus is both fully God and fully human.
- CHRIST CONNECTION: Jesus’ disciples knew Jesus was a good man and a good teacher. When Jesus calmed the wind and the waves, He showed His disciples that He is also God. God rules the sea and stills its waves.
