High School Sunday School Update – 1 & 2 Samuel

High Schoolers: Sunday School class meets each Sunday morning at 9:00 upstairs. Join us as we study the books of 1 & 2 Samuel until summer 2017 to study the life and times of David, a significant king of the Jews and ancestor of Jesus. Here is the schedule for the next few weeks:

August 14
1 Samuel 23 – David heard of fighting between Keilah and Gath, so he looked to the Lord for direction. This is a characteristic of David’s life that serves him well. God told him to fight for Keilah, so he did. This drew Saul to David, but David stayed one step ahead of Saul because God was on his side.

August 21
1 Samuel 24 – One day while Saul was relieving himself, David cut a piece from Saul’s robe. David was guilt-ridden by this act (he probably hadn’t asked God about it). So David met with Saul face-to-face. They talked; Saul realized David could have killed him, but David would not do that!

August 28
1 Samuel 25 – David’s weakness begins to emerge in this chapter: women. David commits adultery with Abigail, then commits murder to conceal his offense. How far are we willing to let sin take us?

Here are our past studies:

November 22
1 Samuel 1 – Hannah was very loved by her husband Elkanah, but she couldn’t get pregnant. So she prayed to God for a child and committed him to the Lord’s service for life. And God granted Hannah’s request, and she became pregnant. They named the boy Samuel, which means heard of God.

November 29
Thanksgiving weekend… no Sunday School.

December 6
Missions Week

December 13
1 Samuel 2 – Hannah rejoiced in prayer, because God gave her not just one, but five children(2:21). We also learn that Eli’s two sons are wicked, and God plans to end Eli’s family line.

December 20
1 Samuel 3 – God talks to Samuel in an audible voice and has a not-so-good message for Eli. Samuel obediently delivers the message to Eli, and eventually everyone recognizes Samuel as a prophet of God.

December 27
Christmas Sunday – no Sunday School.

January 3, 2016
Missions Week

January 10
1 Samuel 4 – The people take the ark of God into battle to help them win, but the Philistines defeated the Israelites, killed Eli’s two sons, and took the ark. News of the capture of the ark caused Eli to fall off his chair and die, while his daughter-in-law gave birth to a son, Ichabod, which means no glory.

January 17
1 Samuel 5 – The ark gave the Philistines troubles. In the temple of the Philistine god Dagon, the ark caused the idol statue of Dagon to fall over…twice! The people in the town near the ark broke out in tumors. They moved it to Gath and it brought more tumors to those people. Philistine towns became afraid to have the ark, and they begged to send it back to Israel.

January 24
1 Samuel 6 – After seven months, the Philistines returned the ark to Israel, and they tried to honor God in the process. The Israelites were happy to see it return, but some men looked inside the ark, not respecting God’s wishes, and they died. This caused people to respect the ark. What does it take for God to get our attention?

January 31
Ask Pastor Gina

February 7
Missions Week

February 14
1 Samuel 7 – When the Israelites turn back to God and cry out for help, He hears their call and subdues their enemies. God blesses those who honor Him. Ebenezer – stone of help.

February 21
1 Samuel 8 – The people all too soon forget from where their strength comes. They plead that they may have a king to follow like the other nations around them, so God gives them a king. But is this God’s true will, or is it God permitting human behavior?

February 28
1 Samuel 9 – Samuel anoints Saul king, but Saul almost misses his divine appointment. Saul looks like a king, but is his kingship the will of God or the will of the Israelites?

March 6
Missions Week

March 13
1 Samuel 10 – God, unhappy that the Israelites had rejected Him as leader, gave Saul the power to prophesy and had Samuel anoint him as king.

March 20
1 Samuel 10 – God is in control of authorities then and now. That is reassuring in an election year.

March 27
Easter Sunday – no Sunday School.

April 3
Missions Week

April 10
1 Samuel 11 – God strengthens Saul’s position as king over Israel through the rescue of Jabesh.

April 17
1 Samuel 12 – Samuel, old and ready to die, rebukes the Israelites for asking God to give them a king.

April 24
1 Samuel 13 – Saul performs the priestly offerings and Samuel rebukes him. What was wrong with Saul performing the offerings?

May 1
Gina Anson’s last Sunday with us before her Michigan move

May 8
1 Samuel 14 – Saul’s son Jonathan attacks a detachment of Philistines and has great success. This precedes a great victory for Israel over the Philistines, but Saul has made a rash edict not to eat that Jonathan did not know about. When Jonathan violates the edict, is he to be punished?

May 15
1 Samuel 15 – God makes clear that He rejects Saul as king. Verse 22 declares that the Lord prefers obedience over burnt offerings and sacrifices. Do we please him more when we repent, or when we obey?

May 22
1 Samuel 16a – The Lord encourages Samuel to stop mourning Saul and to go anoint the next king, a son of Jesse. When Samuel sees Jesse’s oldest, he thinks God must have picked him to be king, but God reminds Samuel that He does not judge on outward appearance, but rather on what is in a person’s heart. After all, Saul looked like a king, but his heart was not pure.

May 29
1 Samuel 16b – David is chosen by God to succeed Saul, but he starts out as Saul’s comforter and servant.

June 5
1 Samuel 17 – Young David is frustrated with Goliath who is chiding and threatening the Israelite army. He shows no fear and total trust in God as he kills Goliath with one hit. Can we have this same authority and power today?

June 12
1 Samuel 18 – David becomes a popular warrior, and Saul becomes jealous. Saul realizes the Lord is with David and not himself, as David has a lot of success in everything he does.

June 19
No Sunday School (Father’s Day)

June 26
Special Speaker – Sergey Molkov

July 3
No Sunday School (Independence Day)

July 10
1 Samuel 19 – Saul’s intense jealousy drives him to try to kill David. But David is wise, and the Lord is on his side.

July 17
1 Samuel 19:18-20:17 – David went to Samuel for help. Saul knew where to look for David, but as he sent men to find him, they began to prophesy and were hindered on their way. So Saul went after David himself, and he too began to prophesy. This looks like the Holy Spirit helping David escape.

July 24
1 Samuel 20:18-42 – Jonathan was a close friend to David, closer than any brother. He couldn’t believe that his father Saul wanted to kill David. But once Saul tried to kill Jonathan, he was convinced that Davis was in danger. SO Jonathan and David parted company, but David vowed to take care of Jonathan’s family. Do we have friends that close?

July 31
1 Samuel 21 – David went to the priest Ahimelech at Nob and got bread and the sword of Goliath. Doeg the Edomite saw David there. From there, David went to Achish, king of Gath. Achish began to sing of David’s greatness, but since David’s time had not come (and he wished to honor Saul as king), he was very afraid and acted insane to be driven away by Achish.

August 7
1 Samuel 22 – David went to the cave at Adullam. There he was joined by 400 men, misfits and malcontents. Saul found out that Ahimelech had helped David through Doeg, so Saul killed Ahimelech’s family. However, Ahitub escaped and ran to David. David told Ahitub to stay so David could take care of him.

I hope to see you Sunday!

July 12
Missions Week

July 19
Ask Pastor Gina

July 26

High School Sunday School Update – Deuteronomy

High Schoolers: Sunday School class meets each Sunday morning at 9:00 upstairs.  Join us as we study the book Deuteronomy for the next few months (through about Easter). Deuteronomy provides a good legal and moral compass for everyone, yet it sets a standard we cannot meet on our own.  Here is the schedule for the next few weeks:

Here are our past studies:
May 4
Missions week

May 11
Introduction and Deut. 1:1-8 – Background on the people in the land the Israelites are moving into. Ham, son of Noah – Genesis 9 & 10; Moabites & Ammonites – Genesis 19:30-38

May 18
Deut. 1:9-46 – Moses told history of the spies in the promised land, and the fear and rebellion of the first generation. Joshua and Caleb will lead.

May 25

June 1
Missions week

June 29
All-church picnic-on-the-grounds. No Sunday School today!

July 6
Deut. 7:1-26 Moses reminds the people to keep God first in their lives. He shares several promises from God if God’s laws and decrees are followed. Do you think these promises apply to us today?

July 13
Deut. 8:1-9:6 – Moses continues to warn the people to remember God when they prosper. Do we remember Him when we prosper? Or are we like the wicked people that God destroyed so the Israelites could have their land?

July 20
Missions Week – special speaker Alice Anson spoke to us this day.

July 27
Deut. 9:7-29 – Moses asked the Israelites to remember the golden calf and how fast they fell back into idolatry (less than 40 days). God loves them (and us) not because of their righteousness, but because God is generous, loving, and compassionate.

August 3
Missions week

August 10
Deut. 10:1-11:9 – Moses recalls when God made two new stone tablets like the first ones, and he asks Israel to fear God, hold fast to God, and love those around them.

August 17
No Sunday School this day! 🙁

August 24
Deut. 11:10-12:19 – Moses encourages the Israelites to pass what God has done for them from generation to generation to help them resist other gods. Do things in our life distract us from God’s call on us? Moses tells them God requires full obedience to Him. In Chapter 12, Moses warns them to go to the specific place of worship to what is dedicated to God. He tells them to not forget the Levites, the priestly tribe.

August 31
Ask Pastor Gina week

September 7
Missions Week

September 14
Deut. 12:20-13:18 – Moses reminds the Israelites that when they enter the new land, they must take what is set apart for God to the place the Lord will choose. Obedience requires work, and travel with the whole household in this case. And he warns them not to look into the pagans’ worship, because that will lead them astray. False prophets will test them, but he warns them to stay focused on God and his ways.

September 21
Chapter 14 – Moses teaches the Israelites about what is clean for them to eat and what is not. He also instructs them to set aside the first tenth of their crops and herds for God. He also teaches them God’s plan for taking care of foreigners, orphans, and widows.

September 28
Chapter 15 – Moses teaches the Israelites how to lend to one another, as well as God’s plan for ending debt every seven years.

October 5
Missions Week

October 12
Chapter 16 – Moses teaches the Israelites special sacrifices for God, including Passover, They are to remember these feasts for generations and observe them strictly the way God prescribed. They are to worship God alone, and God ordained judges to resolve disputes fairly and impartially.

October 19

October 26
Chapter 18 – Moses told the Israelites that the priests are to have no inheritance; they must rely on the worshippers for their sustenance. He warns them not to pick up the evil worship habits of the nations around them. Moses also assures them God will raise up another prophet to lead them and speak for God.

November 2
Missions Week

November 9
Chapter 19 – Moses instructs the Israelites to set aside cities of refuge for people who accidentally kill another person, but to fully punish crimes committed with malice aforethought. He tells them that no one is to be convicted on the word of only one witness. God teaches justice, but Christ later provides mercy.

November 16
Special Speaker: Lance Bylow

November 23
Chapter 20 – Moses teaches the Israelites that God will fight their wars, so take no one who isn’t ready and willing to battle. It was true then, and it is true today that God fights our battles when we are aligned with His purpose. And the first option is always peace (or a treaty).

November 30
Ask Pastor Gina week

December 7
Chapter 21 – Moses teaches the Israelites to atone for an unsolved murder; how to handle it if they wish to marry women from conquered lands; fairness requirements of a man with children from two wives; punishment for a rebellious son (death!); and capital punishment regulations.

January 11
Special Service week – rain!

Chapter 28 – After telling them the governance rules from God, Moses tells the people the many blessings that will be theirs if they obey God. He also informs them of the many curses that will accompany them if they do not obey.

Chapter 29 – Through Moses, God reminds the Israelites of the ways that He had helped them through the Exodus including performing many miracles. “I did this so that you might know that I am the LORD your God.” Moses warns them not to break the deal with God and carefully follow the given law.

March 22
Chapter 30 & Chapter 31:1-8 – Moses tells the people that whenever they wholeheartedly obey God, God will have compassion and “restore your fortunes” (or “bring you back”) and “make you prosperous”. But if people’s hearts turn away, they are destined for death (shorter life) and destruction. The choice seems so easy.

Two Nights of Music, Poetry, Prayer and Worship

REVIVE your LIFE IN CHRIST ConcertREVIVE your LIFE IN CHRIST Benefit Concert, music and poetry with a purpose, is at 7:00 pm., Friday and Saturday, August 10-11, right here at Garden Grove Church of the Nazarene, 13411 Euclid Street, Garden Grove.

The concert features rap artists, spoken word poets and worship musicians such as Nick Bravo, Survivor Q, Chris Webb, Deliverus Ensemble and more. All proceeds will support the LA County Juvenile Hall Tour.

“There is a definite need for this kind of ministry that identifies with the kind of kids we’re working with,” says Chaplain Cedric Brown, Director of LA County Chaplains. “The kids are able to hear from individuals, not much older than they are, who have testimonies and experiences similar to theirs. They can then say, ‘I can be like that, my life can change too.'”

Admission is $15 for both nights and $10 for one night. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Advance tickets and more info are available online at www.re-lic.com or by calling 626-331-3495.
