    The theme for our church for 2019 is "Plow in Hope" based on I Corinthians 9:10. In line with that, we are looking for a theme for our spring Sunday school campaign that has to do with sowing or planting. In the fall, we are going to have a Sunday school campaign theme along the lines of reaping or the harvest, so as to keep in line with our church theme.

    I am having trouble settling on theme for this spring. I considered Isaiah 32:20, "Blessed are ye that sow beside all waters...." but that seems to be more appropriate for a missions conference.

    Any ideas?

    Maybe a stint through Acts as Paul does some sowing?

    What about the parable of the sower?

    Maybe from 2 Corinthians 9:6 - "Sunday School: Sowing Bountifully - Reaping in Joy!" or "Sunday School: Sowing Together - Growing Together."

    Or from Proverbs 11:18 - "Reaping the Sure Reward."

    Matthew 13 Has two accounts of sowing/reaping, the 4 soils and then the wheat and the tares.

    Matthew 9/Luke 10 has an appeal:

    Matthew 9
    37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;
    38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

    Luke 10
    2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.

    John 4
    35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
    36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.
    37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.
    38 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.

    Pastor Bob when I was in the ministry 4 decades ago, once in a while in our Evangelical campaigns (especially for Missionary Meetings) we would use a negative theme. It might be of use. People would be curious. Just a thought.

    Jeremiah 8:20 The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.
