Plus One: 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.

Series: Daniel | The Faithful
Big Idea: When our faith is active, we can see God at work.

Key Verse: Faith is being sure of what we hope for. It is being sure of what we do not see. | Hebrews 11:1

  1. READ Daniel 3:19-30. Take time to show your child how to look up a passage in the Bible. Show them how to navigate books, chapters, and verses. Take turns reading verse by verse and talk about what it means. Ask your child questions such as: What happened before? Who was in the story? What was the big surprise? Why did the king change his mind? Where did we see God at work?
  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!)
