Churches: 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.

Big Question: Why are there so many different kinds of churches?
God Story: John 17 | Jesus’ Prayer for Unity
Key Verse: Don’t worry about anything. No matter what happens, tell God about everything. Ask and pray, and give thanks to him. | Philippians 4:6

  1. READ John 17:20-23. Take time to show your child how to look up a passage in the Bible. Show them how to navigate books, chapters, and verses. Take turns reading verse by verse and talk about what it means. Ask your child questions such as: Who is speaking? What do you think that means? What does it mean for us? What does Jesus want 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!)
