Second Grade Overview

February 19th - February 23rd

BIBLE: Work on scripture memory for Acts 17:29 (ESV), “Being then God’s offspring, we ought not to think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and imagination of man.”

Students should be prepared for some kind of review quiz (verbal or word bank) of verses 24 through 28 so that we can keep the entire passage fresh on our mind.

Acts 17:24-28 (ESV):

(24) “The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, (25) nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything.(26) And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, for in him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your own poets have said,”

**Test: The next verse test #9 has not be scheduled yet.
