Alive: Our Story Continues…

Our Story Continues is our way to connect parents to what kids are talking about and experiencing in the Sunday morning teaching. We want to help to equip parents and spiritual parents with Scripture, talking points, and experiential activities to continue to disciple their kids well every day of the week.

Series: Simply Easter
Big Idea: Jesus wants us to share his good news with everyone.
God Story: The Easter Story | Mark 14:27-15:47 & Mark 16

  1. READ through the Easter narrative. (Take time to show your child how to look up a passage in the Bible. Show them how to navigate books, chapters, and verses.) Ask your child questions such as: what do you think Jesus’ disciples felt at that time? Why did Jesus do that? What does this mean for us?
  2. WATCH the video teaching below with your family this week. Talk about the video as a family. What stood out to you? What did you like? What did you want to ask a question about? (Tip: If it’s helpful, consider pausing the video as you watch it together, and ask questions or talk about things that stick out to you as you go!)
