Celebrate: 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.

Summary: In this series, kids will journey through the story of Moses and the Israelites. They will learn that they can always go to God no matter what is going on, no matter where you are.

Big Idea: God wants us to celebrate.
God Story: God Instructs His People to Celebrate | Exodus 34
Key Verse: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord who rules over all. The whole earth is full of his glory.” | Isaiah 6:3

  1. READ Exodus 34:22-23. 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: Why do you think God told the Israelites that they “must celebrate”? Why do you think God wants us to celebrate?
  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!)
