Creation Care: 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 in kidmax, children learned that God comes first.
Series: Beginnings
Big Idea: Put God first.
Key Verse: “In everything you do, put God first.” Proverbs 3:6, TLB

  1. SING: Download “With All My Heart” on the Yancy My Best Friend
  2. PRAY: for your child each night as they go to bed. Help them to see that you put God first in your life. Start this routine while they are young, and they will grow to ask for prayer before bed.
  3. SHOW: put God first in your own life. Does your little one see you reading your Bible? Do you pray in front of them or display your faith in some way? We can help our kids understand what it means to put God first by showing them what it looks like in our own lives.
  4. MAKE: With paint and a small canvas, paint the bottom of your child’s foot and stamp it to the canvas. On it write: “Put your best foot forward. Put God first.”
