Church School

Welcome to our new Church School Page! In here, you can receive a listing of all the Daily Scriptures, along with the Lesson Titles that each of the teachers will be presenting each week for Church School on Sundays!

As a thought: It is recommended to not just read these verses each day, but also read the entire chapter that contains these verses. As an example: For myself, the first thing I do each morning is to read the entire chapter that contains the verses. That way, I end up getting an even greater understanding of the text, and understand the context of WHY something was spoken in the text. If you read these scriptures first thing in the morning, you will “find yourself” remembering them as the day progresses…. Remember: The Lord NEVER wastes words!!

Also, it’s highly recommended to read the text in another version instead of just the King James Version. Although the KJV is one of the “foundational” scriptures, it’s a great thing to also read it from the Amplified Classic, the Message Bible, the New Living Translation, and/or other versions as well. Whichever one allows you to UNDERSTAND the text is the one you should read. Besides, at the end of the day, all scripture points to HIM, our Lord Jesus Christ, in some way, shape or form, and as we receive HIS IDENTITY through the scriptures, we are then able to receive OUR identities in HIM (1st John 4:17), which then allows us to move fully in what He has ordained, moment by moment, day by day, “in the midst” of this pandemic, or any other calamity that we face. As a result, we then become effective Teachers of Him in the world, being able to articulate the Hope that is within us… Just a thought!!

In the meantime, enjoy these readings! We will be updating this page periodically with new content so you can then be able to a) plan accordingly in receiving these scriptures into your daily life, and b) be able to even more actively participate in the discussions that we have on Sundays during Church School!
