Dream-Teller: 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: This week, kids got a picture of how amazing God is – he blows our minds!
Series: Daniel | The Faithful
Big Idea: God blows our minds.
God Story: Daniel 2 | Dream-teller
Key Verse: Faith is being sure of what we hope for. It is being sure of what we do not see. | Hebrews 11:1

  1. READ Daniel 2:26-45. 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: What happened before this? What do you think that means? How does it make you feel? Is there anything you don’t understand? What was Daniel telling the king?
  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!)
