Making disciples through "events that form and transform"

We are providing these notes from the Committee on Uniform Series that prepares associated Sunday School lesson outlines long in advance of their usage.  Included in this Guide are thoughts that are reflected in the Lesson Development Guide for writers of Sunday school lessons and the recommended commentary of the Department of Christian Education, The New International Lesson Annual published by Abingdon Press Nashville, Tennessee.

Worship Christ's Majesty
Hebrews 1:1-9


Unifying Principle (Focus)

Some people do seemingly miraculous things with their gifts and talents.  How do Christians respond?  For the true miracle of Jesus Christ, the gift of salvation, God’s people respond with worship.

Goals for the Learners

To consider why Jesus is worthy of adoration and worship.

To affirm that Jesus’ superiority and God’s anointing of him with “the oil of gladness” lead to their response of worship.

To practice meaningful worship.


Lesson Challenges for the Week


Look for books, art, media references or other depictions of angels.  How does society portray angels?  How do these portraits confirm or challenge your own beliefs about angels?

Make spiritual preparations during this season of Advent to celebrate the coming of Jesus.  What does it mean to you to say that Jesus came in the flesh as “the exact imprint of God’s being” (Hebrews 1:3)?  Be ready to tell someone how Jesus’ coming changed the world—and you.

Review your church’s worship schedule for upcoming weeks of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany.  Also check for ecumenical events where members of the Christian community are invited to come together.  Make plans to attend as many of these services as possible.  Invite friends or family members to join you.
