Light: 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 what it means to be the salt and light!

God Story: Salt and Light | Matthew 5:13-15
Key Verse: “Those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.” James 3:18

  1. READ Matthew 5:13-15 (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 going on? Is there anything you don’t understand? What is salt for? What do you think Jesus meant? How are we like that?
  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!)
