Welcome to 5th-6th Grade
Classroom News and Notes
Week of March 9-13
5-6 ChristLight— Our lessons for this week are Hannah and Samuel and Eli and His Wicked Sons. In our lessons we learn that Hannah dedicated her son, Samuel, to God and took him to the tabernacle to serve God the rest of his life. We also see that Eli, the high priest, did not discipline his sons, so God punished his whole family. We thank God for parents who bring us up in the training and instruction in the Lord and appreciate that their discipline is done out of love for us and for God.
