We want to be known as a learning church because we serve a God who invites us to know Him.

Fall 2021 Celebrating GOD Unit 1 – God’s People Offer Praise
This unit has four lessons that give examples of persons who celebrate God. Both Moses and the prophet Miriam sing songs of praise for God’s mighty acts. David dances before the ark as he brings it into Jerusalem. Bartimaeus glorifies God in Mark. In Acts, after their experience of Pentecost and Peter’s sermon, early believers enter into a life of praise for God’s redemption through Jesus Christ.
Lesson 1—Praise with Music
People compose poems and songs for celebrations. After deliverance from Egyptian slavery, Moses and Miriam led the people in praising God in song.
Lesson 2—Praise in Dance
Celebrations can be diverse in form and action. King David expressed his celebration of God by dance.
Lesson 3—Praise by Expecting and Following
People react to life’s challenges differently. Bartimaeus’s bold faith in Jesus resulted in receiving his sight.
Lesson 4— Praise for Salvation
Celebrations reveal one’s way of seeing and being in the world. In that regard, do celebrations do more to unify divided people or to reveal a unity that already exists? The first Christians’ praise of God coincided with their “having favour with all the people” as “the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.”
