Lesson Time

Split the lesson into three sections “pre-marriage”, “marriage service”, “after-wedding.”  The lesson book is written pretty well – so split the kids into 3 groups and have the kids review their assigned section in the book and then present the section they were assigned.

Some notes/discussion to add as the sections are presented:

  1. Pre-marriage
    • Marriage definition
      • What is the difference between a covenant and contract?
    • A Partner from where?
      • Trust in God
      • Enjoy your season of singleness – after marriage no decision you made is truly independent.
      • About dating – gave this advice – if your relationship is something that you have to hide from your parents something is probably wrong.
    • Church requirements
      • Highlight Qurbono is part of every sacrament.
  2. The Marriage Service
    • Blessing of Rings
      • When did this service originally occur?
      • Who puts the ring on the finger? How is this different that the wedding seen on TV?
      • Trick question: When does the bride and groom say their vow and “I do”? (ans. they don’t) 
    • Crowning
      • Bring up the opening activity
      • The chain is the “crown” in Kerala wedding
    • Cultural: Minnu/Manthrakodi
      • Where does this come from?
      • What does Manthra Kodi literally mean?
  3. After the Wedding
    • Sacrifice and Submission
    • Family & Children
    • Compromise
