God’s Partners: 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.

WALKERS

Summary: This week, children learned that Christmas is all about Jesus, and Jesus is the king, and not just any king, the king of kings!
Big Idea: Jesus is the king of kings.
Key Verse: “Jesus is the greatest king of all.” referenced from Revelation 17:14

  1. SING Download “Best Present Ever” from the Yancy album Taste and See and “Away in a Manger” from the album Happy Day Everyday.
  2. There are just over three weeks until Christmas! Help your little one prepare for the season in their hearts, not just with the physical décor around them. Create a paper chain countdown. On each paper chain piece (one for each day until Christmas) include something that helps your child discover the significance of Jesus’ birth. Examples include: pray that God would give your family generous hearts, learn a Christmas carol together, read through the nativity story, set up the nativity and talk about it, etc.

Grades 1-5

Summary: This week in kidmax, kids learned the story of God inviting Jeremiah to speak for him to his people, and how we are never too young to partner with God.
Series: Matthew | Get Up
Big Idea: We are never too young to partner with God.
God Story: Jeremiah 1
Key Verse: “I have loved you with a love that lasts forever. I have kept on loving you with a kindness that never fails.” Jeremiah 31:3

  1. READ Jeremiah 1:4-10. (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 questions such as: Who is speaking? What is the problem? What is going on? Is there anything you don’t understand?
  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!)
