Religion____________________________________________________
We will continue our study of the Apostles' Creed. Focusing on the second article of the creed - And [I believe] in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty. From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead. 

Memory Quiz #16 - DUE January 28th (YURK) or 29th (KELL) 

1st Article of the Apostles Creed & Meaning (Part 3) - I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. What does this mean? All this He does only out of fatherly, divine goodness and mercy, without any merit or worthiness in me. For all this, it is my duty to thank and praise, serve and obey Him. This is most certainly true.

 Journal #9 - DUE January 28th (YURK) or 29th (KELL) 

We are at the end of the first month of 2021! As you chose your Word of the Year and Bible verse I had you think about things that you wanted to be different this year, or things that you wanted to accomplish. So how's it going? Are you keeping focused on your Word? Why or why not? Are you seeing any positive changes in your life because of your Word? Why or why not? Have you memorized your Bible verse and been talking to God about your Word and the changes you [and He] want to see in your life? Why or why not?

Sermon Note #6 - DUE February 25th (YURK) or 26th (KELL)
