Love: 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.

How does your family experience God’s love?  (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. Ask: What is God’s love like in your life? How do you feel and know God’s love? How would you describe it to a friend?
    3. Learn the Key Verse together as a family. If you know “The Lord’s Prayer” in a different translation, share the version you know with your kid(s). Did you learn this growing up? Share about your experience.
