Emmanuel: 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. 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!)
  2. There’s only a week until Christmas. How exciting! It can be a busy time for most families, but schedule time together as a family to simply breathe and be. How can you focus in on Jesus as God with us. Light a candle, sing a song, read the nativity story, breathe in together.
