All In: 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.

Grades 1-5

Summary: This week, kids learned that Jesus wants us to be “all in” with our relationship to him.
Series: Matthew | Jesus
Big Idea: Jesus wants us to be all in.
God Story: Matthew 16:21-27 | Jesus tells his disciples how to follow him
Key Verse: “Jesus said, ‘Whoever wants to be my disciple must say no to themselves. They must pick up their cross and follow me.’” Matthew 16:24

  1. READ the Key Verse together (or see who in your family can say it from memory). Ask: what does it mean to “say no to yourself”? That’s not easy, but why is it important?
  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!)
  3. BRAINSTORM as a family, consider what it means for you to really be “all in” as followers of Jesus. What would you like to start doing, or stop doing to be better followers of Jesus?
