Compassionate’s Sunday School mission is like that of Matthew 28:18-20,  
"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father,
and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."  As the
scripture based bible lessons are  
taught
, we pray that each heart is filled with the knowledge, wisdom and
understanding of God’s Holy word.  


The goal of this page is to keep our members and the public aware of our weekly
lessons as well as Lesson Forecasts, and Lesson Reviews.  Please check it
monthly for updates.  It is our prayer that each and every person comes to know
the Lord as their personal Savior and grow in the knowledge of Christ Jesus.  
We invite you to join us each Sunday morning at 9:30 for Sunday School.  There
are classes for all age groups where teachers are explaining the Word of God at
every level so God’s Word can be applied to our daily lives.

Please contact the Sunday School Department Superintendent, Charles
Douglas, if you have any questions or concerns about our Sunday School.  

We hope you to you this coming Sunday morning at 9:30!

Facts: to show that when David sought to build a temple for God, God instead promised to build a dynasty for him-an eternal kingdom ruled over by His Son,
the eternal King.
Principle: to show that the coming of Christ was in keeping with God’s covenant with David, providing one more step in making the Messiah’s arrival
recognizable for Israel.

and that all that He has promised will come to pass.

Age Group Emphases
Children:  Teach the children that heaven is God’s home and that by faith they can go to live with Him in His eternal kingdom.
Youths:  Caution the young people that even a good idea can become a distraction that blinds them to seeing God’s greater plans and blessings for their
lives.
Adults:  Challenge your adults to search themselves to ensure that they have prepared themselves to live in the house that God has provided for them.

Golden Text: Revelation 5:12

Lesson Aim
Facts: to show that as the Lamb who gave Himself to pay for man’s sin, Jesus is worthy to open the scroll and unleash the judgments of the tribulation upon
the world that rejects Him.
Principle: to show that as the Lamb who was sacrificed to redeem sinful mankind, Jesus is qualified to also be our Judge if we reject Him.
Application: to show that whether we accept or reject Christ, we will one day acknowledge His worthiness as Redeemer and Judge.

Age Group Emphases
Children:  Children seek affirmation and are often jealous when their peers receive special recognition.  Teach them that Jesus is the worthy Lamb because
He serves both God and man and that they too should learn to love and serve others.
Youths:  Discuss some of the many facets of Jesus.  He is the Son of God, the Son of Man, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, and the Lamb of God.  Remind the
students that no human can fully comprehend God and that being a Christian means accepting God’s truths by faith.
Adults:  Assure them that although they may be experiencing a difficult test or trial, they are not without hope.  God will reveal His purpose and plan for this
period of suffering.  Encourage them to worship and praise Him in spite of their adversity.
