6th Grade Religion

This week in Religion class we are focusing on the stories of Adam and Eve, being God's stewards for all living things and human disobedience. This is a great week for understanding important theological points.

Today in class I asked if they had any special prayer requests. I was amazed at all the prayers your children wanted for others. Their prayers were sincere and heartfelt. Your children have such beautiful hearts and I am so honored to be their religion teacher!

Today I shared with your 7th Graders a sheet for the "Pro-Life Poster Contest." If your child is a good artist or has a great idea for a poster, you may want them to enter this contest :)

This week, we are focusing on God, the Father's love for us. Last chapter we concentrated on the Blessed Trinity; now we are looking at each Person of the Trinity and this chapter focuses on God, the Father.

We had an incredible class today. As we were talking about God always being present in our lives, I asked "If God is always present, then why do bad things happen." Well that question sparked a beautifully thoughtful conversation that took the whole period. Ask your 7th grader what they learned today. I am amazed at the theological depth your child continues to portray in Religion class.

8th Grade Religion

Today in Religion class, I went through their confirmation packet with them.

I told them to discuss with you the information regarding Sponsors as well as Confirmation Names.

Also, it would be a good idea to go through the other portions of the confirmation packet. There are a lot of dates and deadlines to keep track of.

I also shared with them a sheet for the "Pro-Life Poster Contest." If your child is a good artist or has a great idea, you may want them to enter this contest :)

We will be finishing the first part of Chapter 3 this week. We took each commandment and went deep with them, talking about the heart issue of each commandment. Ask your child what they learned from these commandments.
