Before Sunday, watch the video then look at a timeline of the events in the New Testament. You were given one when you received your Bible as a third grader. If you don’t have that one, google one. What is the time span that the New Testament covers? How is that different from the time line of the Old Testament? Why do you think there is such a difference?

4th & 5th Grade Groups | Journey to Confirmation

What’s New?
Our 4th and 5th graders are continuing their Confirmation Journey which will culminate at the end of their 6th grade year with the opportunity to declare from themselves that Jesus is their Lord and Savior. To prepare them to make their profession of faith, we spend the 4th grade year doing an overview of the Old Testament and the themes that carry through the whole of scriptures. In 5th grade we do a survey of the New Testament.

Thursdays (in Thursday newsletter)
A short video is provided for your tween (and you) to watch PRIOR to Sunday’s Zoom. Because our Zoom time is limited, we ask that your 4th or 5th grader do a little preparation before they come to the zoom meeting.

Sundays at 10:00 AM 
We will be using the next 16 weeks to dig deeper into the Old and New Testament surveys via zoom on Sundays at 10:00. We will also explore and discuss the contents of the weekly video. Look for the Zoom invitation in your email each week from your child’s leader.

Weekly Small Group Check-In Zooms
4th grade – begins soon.
5th grade – check-ins resume on Monday, January 11.

This Week’s Video & Project (complete before Sunday)
Watch the Youtube video below. Use your NRSV Student Bible’s (the one you received as a third grader) Table of Contents and the infographic about the Biblical Canon (Infographic#1) that will be delivered to your home this week and find the five books talked about on the page that didn’t make it in our biblical canon. Be prepared to talk about why you think some books made it into the canon and why some did not.
