Adult Sunday School Lessons

 Marriage and Family

Why do marriages not last these days, not all of them but a great number of them just does not last?   Grace has just completed a seminar on this very topic and most, if not all, of Grace couples showed up for these sessions. Why?  Because it was something I believe that directly affected their marriage and the relationships that develop during the course of the life of a marriage.   And there were also a few who participated who were single parents perhaps contemplating marriage at some point in their lives.  

So a great deal of the topics that will be addressed in these next 13 weeks will be familiar.  Use the repetition to help stir up your marriage.   In every lesson, be sure and internalize the messages.  In every case, be sure and take something away and:  

      1.       Make it the application personal
      2.       Make the application practical
      3.       Make it possible
      4.       Make it provable

Every teacher this quarter will be lead by a marriage man or woman.  So they, like me, can identify with the issues that confront all of us throughout the life of a marriage.  These issues include and are not limited to communication breakdowns, infidelity, financial problems, unbelief, and so forth.  Lesson #1 will be led by our own Iris J. Lundy on the topic:  The Foundation of a Family.  I think this is a good place to press forward.  Here's the focus thought and the focus scripture:

  • Focus Thought:  Unity in the family and a strong commitment to God's purposes, principles, and oneness are prerequisites
  • "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might" (Deut. 6:4-5).

My apologies upfront because heretofore, we have only the student manual and it had to be scanned and therefore the quality you are used to is missing.  Nevertheless, they are readable.  Print them out and use as you please --- share them as well.

          Sunday School gets underway each Sunday at 10:00 a.m.
