Lesson Plans That Work: Last Sunday After Epiphany

Lesson Plans That Work: Last Sunday After Epiphany

February 24, 2014

lptwWe are currently in Epiphany, Year A so we have Lesson Plans for both the Gospel readings and the Old Testament (Track One) readings.

Gospel Lesson: The Disciples See the Brightness of Jesus
Scripture: Matthew 17:1-9

Mountaintop experiences! Moses received the Law — to obey. Jesus is revealed as the person — to follow.

Old Testament Lesson: Following God
Scripture: Exodus 24:12-18

In the story of Moses coming to God and receiving the Ten Commandments, we are brought right back to the issue of how we live our lives in Grace with God.  There are guidelines that help us identify the boundaries that give us the ability to have a unique relationship not only with God but with each other.  Here we are witness to the mystery of God speaking to Moses and the promise of an ancient tradition of laws and prophets helping us to feel secure about the fact that God will always be with us showing us the way.  The blessing is always that Light which is given to each of us to follow always leading us to the Creator.

About Lesson Plans that Work

Lesson Plans that Work is a part of the Episcopal Digital Network that hosts free curriculum and resources that are published online by The Episcopal Church.

Each week, you will find lesson plans for young children (non-readers), older children (grade school age children), and adults. Inter-generational lesson plans are available at the beginning of each season and for many major feast days throughout the liturgical year. Most lesson plans are based on the Gospel, and some also have an Old Testament Lesson Plan. In addition to these weekly lesson plans, you can find special lesson plans that celebrate saints, events, or commemorations throughout the year.

These lesson plans can be used as written, or they are easy to adapt to reflect the context of your congregation’s children’s program.

To help you use Lesson Plans that work, we have set up various calendars within each season. The Liturgical Calendar shows the current year and the lessons that fall on each Sunday. The Comprehensive Index provides a chart of each Sunday in each liturgical year. Use the “Search this Website” on the top right of the page to search for keywords, seasons, and more.
