What is church? Free lesson plan keystage 2

  1. 1. Teachers note: Topics we will look at See more Free Lesson Plans at: https://notmanywise.uk [i]
  2. 2. What is the Church? Draw or describe a Church near you or a Church that you know of. [ii]
  3. 3. How about A new Church group meeting in a school (Bottom far right) A Roman Catholic Church (Bottom near right) Assembly of God Church (Background picture) Baptist Church Methodist Church (Above) Anglican Church (Above) [iii] [iv] [v] [vi] [vii][viii] . . this Or this
  4. 4. What makes one Church different from another? What about? This Photo by Unknown Author is licensed under CC BY This Photo by Unknown Author is licensed under CC BY-NC-ND This Photo by Unknown Author is licensed under CC BY-SA[ix] [x] [xi] [xii] [xiii] [xiv]
  5. 5. But these things are not important! This Photo by Unknown Author is licensed under CC BY-NC-ND [xv] [xiv] [xvi]
  6. 6. Comparative example: You've got to choose which car can go the fastest. Question: Do you choose the red, blue, green or yellow car? [xvii] [xviii] [xix] [xx]
  7. 7. Answer: You can't make the correct choice by just choosing a colour; It is the size of engine, weight of the car, etc, that is important. So whether a Church has got a spire, or hasn't got a spire, etc, is irrelevant. Some Churches will have modern lively music, others will have quieter traditional hymns and many will have a mixture of both. None of these things are vitally important, remember it's the people that make the Church. [xxi] [xxii] [xxiii] [xxiv]
  8. 8. So what is a Church, it's nothing to do with spires, etc. The word 'church' has got 2 meanings: • It often means a building. • It also means a group of people. So a group of Christians meeting together can correctly be called a Church. Also, because the Church is made up of people, then the Christian Church consists of every believer in the whole world. The Church is a community of Christians from all races and nationalities. Note: Not all Churches are Christian eg: Spiritualist Church, Church of the Latter Day Saints, Mormons, etc. these other Churches have either altered the Bible to suit their beliefs, or they have got something else as their authority. All Christians have the Bible as their authority This Photo by Unknown Author is licensed under CC BY [xxv]
  9. 9. So why are there different Churches? To answer the question, we’ll ask this question: What did you have for breakfast?... Does that make the 'Coco Pops family' better than the 'Shreddies family’? Of coarse not! They are still a family, whatever the breakfast. It's not that important. Which breakfast you decide to have is a matter of personal taste: You prefer Weetabix, you're not so keen on Corn Flakes. What’s that got to do with different churches….

  10. 10. So why do Christians go to Church? It's the same for different Churches - a matter of personal taste. One person prefers a quieter service, someone else likes a noisy, energetic service. One is not better than the other. It's all to do with styles and personal taste. [xxix] [xxx] [xxxi] [xxxii] [xxxiii]
  11. 11. Christians will worship on their own at home, or wherever they are. Church is not the only place where they have to worship. But it is good for Christians to experience worship together as a group. (Teachers note: The subject of worship will be dealt with in the next Lesson Plan). Firstly, they go to worship. [xxxiv] [xxxv]
  12. 12. The second thing Christians do in Church is that they pray. Praying is talking to God it'saskingGodforthings (Teachers note: The subject of praying will be dealt with in a later Lesson Plan). [xxxvi] [xxxvii] [xxxix] [xxxviii]
  13. 13. God speaks to them through the Bible - not in a voice that can be heard. Some sentences, or a story from the Bible may impress them. Perhaps the story in the Bible is similar to a situation they find themselves in, so they trust that God is speaking to them. The talk given in Church, is sometimes known as a 'sermon' or 'the message’. It should be based on a portion of the Bible.

The third thing Christians do in Church, is that they want to hear from God. How do Christians hear from God? [xL] [xL]
  14. 14. Christians would make friends there. They would all have a similar purpose and morals in their lives. The British culture sometimes disagrees with what the Bible says, so a Christian can at times find it difficult to live a 'Christian life’. So by spending time with other Christians they can encourage one another to behave correctly. Going to Church is important for Christians. It is a big commitment to go regularly, but Christians enjoy doing it. What sort of influence would this have on Christians? [xLi]
  15. 15. Here is something from the Bible, it says: (1 Corinthians 15:33 NLT) Who, or what, influences your actions and behaviour? What does that mean? "bad company corrupts good character.“ [xLii] [xLiii] [xLiv] [xLv]
  16. 16. Do they encourage you to live a 'good' life, or do they lead you astray? Here is something else from the Bible, it says: "let us outdo each other in being helpful and kind to each other and in doing good." Hebrews 10:24 (Living Bible) What does that mean? Christians choose to spend time with people who try to live good lives, so that it is then easier not to get led astray by others. Are you happy with your mates? How important is it to have good influences in your life? [xLvi]] [xLvii]] [xLviii]]
  17. 17. Are you happy with your mates? Do they encourage you to live a 'good' life, or do they lead you astray? How important is it to have good influences in your life? [xLix]]
