Sunday School Memory Verses

Simply put, memorizing scripture shapes us and allows the word of  God to dwell in us. Many times, adults will say that a certain passage of scripture came to their mind as they were suffering from an illness, or struggling with a problem, and it was a comfort to them. Other times, a verse came to them as they were facing a temptation. Or, God’s word simply encouraged them as they went about their ordinary day. And if you asked these adults when they learned this scripture, most of them would say it was when they were a child, in Sunday School. It is worth our effort to help our children memorize scripture.  

At Zion, we have “Say it Days” throughout the education year. On these days, if a child can say their memory verse, they can pick a prize out of our treasure chest. We use the NIV version, and our schedule is as follows:
