4th Grade , Religion

Students learned that the New Testament is the story and teachings of Jesus and the early Christian community. They learned that the Holy Spirit gives one the power and strength to live the Christian life. We also learned that all baptized Christians are brothers and sisters in Christ. We also discussed that Jesus studied and taught the Old Testament. We ended the quarter by learning and being able to identify the different types of sin: personal sin (mortal and venial), and social sin.  Looking ahead our religion lessons will concentrate on learning to love God above all things and placing our hope and trust in God. We will focus on forming and examining our conscience. We will begin to learn about God’s laws for his people.
