2021-2022 UIM Year-at-a-Glance
Theme for the Whole Year:
“Growing Holy, Healthy Generations”
Based on Matthew 4:4 – But [Jesus] answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Matthew 4:4
It has been said that in our fast-moving society, those who do not have high blood pressure are “simply not paying attention.” We live in a very unhealthyworld. People are not eating healthy foods, and that includes the food of God’s Word. They are not being nourished in their bodies or in their souls. Unhealthy bodies can die physically and unhealthy souls can die spiritually and eternally. With the death of bodies and souls increasing it has become critical to grow holy, healthy bodies and souls that have the spiritual wisdom and strength of faith to grow holy, heathy generations. This is the life and soul saving mission God created UIM resources to accomplish.

UIM Sunday School Quarters or Series:
Fall UIM SS 56
“Feeding Generations Body and Soul”
This series is based on 1 Corinthians 6:19: “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own,” and Matthew 5:6: “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.”
This UIM SS Series is desperately needed today because people are dying from a growing lack of spiritual and physical nourishment. Their bodies and minds are attacked by problems and tragedies their faith and souls are not strong enough to withstand. Generations who attend will be offered the spiritual food (God’s Word) that grows healthy souls who desire to be healthyin their bodies. These spirituallyhealthysouls are strong even when their physical bodies are weak or ill or dying because the Lord gives them His strength. As they pass on their health and strength from the Lord to present and future generations, lives and souls are strengthened in faith that saves eternally in heaven and empowers them to handle, prevent, and heal problems and tragedies on earth.
Winter UIM SS 57
“Life and Soul Saving Exercises”
This series is based on 1 Timothy 4:8: “For while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.”
This UIM SS Series introduces generations to life and soul saving exercises or, more specifically, the physical and spiritual holiness and health that come from physically doing spiritual exercises. Today, spiritually and physically unhealthy bodies and souls lack faith and strength to handle, prevent, and heal problems and tragedies. Lives and souls are being lost. All of the exercises in this Series and each lesson endeavor to strengthen generations in faith through the redeeming work of God’s Son and the power of His Holy Spirit to be holy and healthy and able to grow holy, healthy generations, intentionally to help save lives and souls.
Spring UIM SS 58:
“Establishing Healthy Priorities and Balance”
This series is based on Luke 12:31: “Instead, seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you.”
So many things can keep us from God and can quickly become priorities or be placed
before God. That is when our lives become unbalanced. They lose the stability and balance only our God can give, because He does not change, as James 1:17 reminds us: Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. In this Series, those
who attend will gain strength of faith to stand strong and not change in order to help bring the stability and balance of God that comes into the lives of those who seek Him first.
Summer SS UIM SS 59
“Rest and Relax In Christ”
This series is based on Matthew 11:28: [Jesus said,] “Come to Me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
When people do not take time to rest and relax as God intended their bodies and souls both suffer. This Series awakens generations to the need for rest and relaxation and even more importantly to the need for God and the rest only He can give. In this Summer Series, those who attend will learn how to enjoy rest and relax even when doing so seems impossible, because with God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26), and not just during the summer, but every day of life!
