Dirty Jobs Episode 3

Our resident Bible scholar, Dr. Oldman, has won a role as the guest host on the TV show Dirty Jobs. Now, he’s on the hunt for the dirtiest jobs in America. In his first episode, he took the camera crew to one of the cleanest jobs that ever existed. If he doesn’t do better at picking the dirty job for today’s episode, he might find himself in an even bigger mess. Let’s find out what happens in episode three of Dirty Jobs.

While Lanaire was a little more impressed with Dr. Oldman’s dirty job selection this week, she was a little surprised that Dr. Oldman got the idea for interviewing a chimney sweep from a Bible story.

God showed that He is the only true God by doing something no one else could do. He heard and answered Elijah’s prayer and sent fire down from heaven to light a soaking wet altar on fire. Dr. Oldman was right, that is one of the most unforgettable stories in the Bible.

Weekend Wrap-Up


1st – 5th Grade

Monthly Bible Verse: 2 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness.”
Bible Story: God hears and answers our prayers. :: 1 Kings 18:16-35
Lesson Overview:

This weekend we learned God hears and answers our prayers. We read a Bible story about a group of people lead by King Ahab who were angry with Elijah. They blamed Elijah because it hadn’t rained in their town in over three years and they were in a MAJOR drought. Elijah told King Ahab to bring his prophets to Mount Carmel for a challenge to see whose god was the real God. Ahab and his prophets built an alter and prayed to their gods to burn up the alter with fire. The prophets called out to their gods but there was no answer and no fire.

 
Elijah built an alter and prayed to God asking He show Himself to these people so that they would know and believe in Him. God answered Elijah’s prayers and sent fire to the alter Elijah had made.

This week remember to pray to God and thank Him that He hears and our prayers!

Memory Verse: “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” - Psalm 119:105
Lesson Overview:

 

This weekend’s feature presentation in The Great 8 Movie Marathon at Quest Cinemas was a lot of fun! We saw the movie “Spy Chase” and learned “I Will Follow Only God!” We watched as secret agents discovered clues and uncovered the mystery of who we should follow. We learned that just like Elijah followed only God, we should follow only God too!
