Character: 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.

  1. READ Genesis 35:23-26. 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 we get this family list of names? What does it tell us about God’s story? Whose name in that list do you know? Why?
  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!)
