Ages 7-12 / Teacher: R.E. Sean Hatter
Our Sunday School class for elementary children has recently been exploring the question, “What Is the Gospel?” Starting with Creation and working through Scripture, we are going beyond the basics to see God’s redemptive plan throughout history, always bringing our lessons back to the central truth of the Cross of Christ to gain a better understanding of the work that the Lord Jesus has done on our behalf.
At the same time, we are also exploring the truth of God’s Word as expressed through the questions and answers of the Westminster Shorter Catechism. Because the make-up our class can chage from week to week, we do not focus on memorization of the questions and answers (though we encourage it and sometimes do fun memorization drills in class), but rather focus on the truth that is being taught through the questions and answers. Our goal is to help nurture our children into a love for God’s Word, to see how it applies to their lives here and now, and to always point them toward Jesus and His redemptive work.
