Well: 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 though we want many things in life Jesus offers us what no one else can and what we really need.

Big Idea: Jesus gives what no one else can.

  1. READ John 4:7-18 and 28-30. Ask your child what the Samaritan woman wanted when she arrived at the well. Review with your child what Jesus offered her that she didn’t know she was looking for (living water, to be known and seen). How is what Jesus offered the woman better than what she initially wanted? What do you think Jesus means when he speaks about living water?
  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!)
