Winter theme:
Faith in Action

Daniel | Matthew | Acts | Ephesians | Colossians | 1 Timothy | James

This winter, our lessons explore the twofold nature of faith as belief and action. Selections from Acts show various examples of proclaiming faith in Christ. In the Book of Daniel, we see faith in action as sincere, obedient, bold, and strong. The lessons from several epistles show how our actions as individuals and as communities demonstrate our faith in Christ. The student book writer is Chuck Aaron. The writer for the teacher book is Martha Myre.

The Early Church Proclaims Faith in Christ
The five lessons in this unit reveal what the early Christian leaders proclaimed about living our faith in Christ. The sessions in Acts report several examples of social welfare ministry and evangelism in spite of opposition. Ephesians teaches about faith that leads to unity in the body of Christ. The Christmas lesson gives an account of the wise men who faithfully searched for the newborn King of the Jews.

A Living Faith in God
The four lessons in this unit explore faith in action from the Book of Daniel. These lessons provide models for ways to actively engage in behaviors that demonstrate sincerity, obedience, boldness, and strength of faith.

Self-Controlled, Upright, and Godly Faith
This unit offers four lessons that look at passages from Acts, James, and First Timothy, providing specific examples of faith as belief and action. James teaches that faith without works is dead. The lesson from First Timothy offers instructions about leading others in a life of faith.
