Share: 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.

Take turns reading verse by verse and talk about what it means). Ask your child questions such as: Who was in the story? What did Jesus say to them? Who did they go and get when they met Jesus?
