Dreamer: 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.

Key Verse: We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him. | Romans 8:28

  1. READ Genesis 37:1-11. 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: What do you think it would have been like to have so many brothers? How do you think you would have felt if you were one of Joseph’s brothers? Do you think Joseph should have told his family about the dreams or not?
  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!)
