This week, youth will look at some of what Paul wrote to Timothy in 1 Timothy 4:12. Although Timothy was a gifted leader, he was young. Paul reminds Timothy that he should stay faithful to the task God gave him. Even in his youth, Timothy was able to lead the church and point people to Jesus.
Bottom Line: God made each of us to make a difference. As we discover more about our individuality, we can begin to realize that God created us for a purpose. God can use our strengths to help others and show them what it means to follow Jesus. Through Timothy’s story, we hope that youth start to understand the purpose God has for them.
In March, youth are reminded that God is one of a kind in a unit entitled "Made". He has no beginning and no end. Everything He has created is unique and one-of-a-kind, including people created in His image. Every person is an original reflection of God in how they love, care for others, imagine, create, and solve problems. Jesus lived this out in the way He loved all people, and helped people feel like they had value no matter who they were or what they had done. We can reflect this in the way we live out how God created us.

As part of the third grade curriculum, students will use class time over the month of March, to design and create their own stoles. They will need to pick meaningful symbols, copy and cut it from felt and attach it to a long strip of felt which will be worn around their necks. Given the involved nature of this project over several weeks, it is imperative that grade three students attend classes in March/April. A big thank you to Desma Kuras as she leads this project.
Sunday School teachers are a special group of people! They regularly sacrifice time, money, and resources to spend a brief hour each week offering spiritual training to our youth. Sunday School teachers are not babysitters, but are faithfully called by God to impact lives, empower others, and to witness God transform lives. To do this effectively, they need physical and moral support from the congregation, and strength and wisdom from God.
