Primary Grade Level Lesson
For Sunday School

 Rock Solid

Opening prayer :  Join together in prayer asking God
to reveal the truth about the one and only true  foundation
we stand upon that will never move from beneath us.
Memory Verse :

"Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine,
 and doeth them,I will liken him unto a wise man,
 which built his house upon a rock."Matthew 7:24
Are you building your house on the rock or the sand,
Are you living for time or the ages to be?
Do you know that your structure, though shaken, will stand,
Unharmed by the tempests which sweep o’er the sea?


Let rains descend and tempests sweep;
Let floods arise and billows leap;
My house will stand ’neath every shock,
For I have built upon the Rock.

O the Lord is the Rock; our Foundation is tried,
And is changeless today as in centuries flown,
Though by men once rejected, He still doth abide,
He’s the blest Rock of Ages, the great Living Stone.


Though the billows may beat and the hurricane blow,
I am fearless and calm in the face of the gale;
For the Word of Jehovah is sure, and I know,
Having built on my Savior, they cannot prevail.






Suggested Materials for Today's Lesson in The Word: 


A small pile of sand / 1 large Rock  / 1  pitcher of water / 2 paper cups/ 1 pencil or crayon to decorate the cups as houses.



Today's Bible Reading:


 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings,

 and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:

  He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep,

 and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose,

the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it

: for it was founded upon a rock.

 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without

a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream

 did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell;

and the ruin of that house was great.

Luke 6:46-49
