LESSONS AND HANDOUTS FOR THIS WEEK
World Sunday School first appeared on the Internet on May 14, 2003. Since that time, this independent website has supplied weekly graded Sunday School lessons and handouts (and, often, coloring pages) to help Sunday School teachers worldwide. We hope to help preserve the Sunday School movement which had its glory days in the 1930's. In a time when so many churches are downsizing Sunday Schools, we aim to preserve this Christian teaching to enrich the life of children and youth worldwide.

Last week we began a study about how God called upon His servant Joshua to lead His people into the land that He had promised to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Moses. We learned that Joshua had been an aide to Moses and when Moses died, The Lord told Joshua that he would be the one to lead them. In the first chapter of Joshua we see that The Lord tells him over and over, Joshua do not be afraid, be very courageous, do not be dismayed. This mighty warrior must have stood before God trembling in his heart at the thoughts of this task, otherwise God would not have told him over and over again not to be afraid. Joshua was embarking on a new adventure and mission in life and the thoughts of it was terrifying. God was leading him into his destiny and he had never been at that place before. This would require him to step out on faith and believing God to do what he could not do. Joshua knew that God is ever faithful, and so he trusted and obeyed God and step by step he followed in the path that God had prepared for him. God had promised that every bit of ground in which their feet touched, He would give it to them. They would have to step out by faith on The Journey to their promised land. It wasn’t going to be easy, but God was leading the way and He never leads His children wrong.
GOD Bless You All. : )

GRADE 3-6 LESSON - April 23, 2023
Last week we began a series of lessons leading up to Easter. This week, we’re going to look at what sort of Messiah the Jews were expecting, what they should have been expecting, and what He really was – a spiritual Savior. One day He will return to earth as the King they were looking for. But the first time He came, many had trouble accepting what they weren’t expecting.
Fill in the Blanks
of God, who takes away the sin of the world.”
- Simeon warned Jesus’ mother, , that a sword would pierce her own soul.

PRIMARY LESSON - April 23, 2023
A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing;
Our helper He, amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing:
For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe;
His craft and power are great, and, armed with cruel hate,
On earth is not his equal.
Craft activity: ( Paper and Crayons)
Create a picture using some of the words found in this psalm .
Maybe you want to draw the earth , or a mountain
with people praising God -
or perhaps a " word picture " writing large
and carefully the words Joy , Praise , Holiness
and Refuge with Christian symbols
on it -- Bible, rainbow, a cross etc.
