Scriptures about Our Father in Heaven
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. 30 But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. 32 So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, 33 but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven. –Matthew 10:29-33
For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” 16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life] 28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? –Matthew 6:26-30

FAQ about Father’s Day for Sunday School Teachers
The Bible is full of great fathers, both good and bad. A good lesson on Father’s day could focus on one of these fathers in the Bible, such as Abraham, Isaac, Joseph, David, or Solomon.
Each of these fathers had their own unique parenting style, and each struggled with different challenges. But they all had one thing in common: they loved their children and were determined to do what was best for them. Fathers are an important example for our children, and it’s important to teach our kids to respect and admire their fathers. Fathers are also vitally important in the spiritual development of their children. So a good lesson on Father’s Day would be to encourage dads to spend time with their kids.
There is no one answer to this question since churches can celebrate Father’s Day in a variety of ways.

Answer: Jesus called God his Father in Heaven because that’s where he came from.
When Jesus was baptized, the Father spoke from heaven and said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:17) From that point on, Jesus always referred to his Father as being in heaven.
The Bible also says that before he was born, Jesus existed in heaven with the Father. (John 17:5) So when Jesus prayed or spoke about his Father, he was speaking about the one who created him and who currently lived in heaven.
