Follow: 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.

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.

Grades 1-5

Summary: This week in kidmax, kids learned about God’s promise to never flood the earth again, and what that means to us today.
Series: Genesis 6-8 | Noah
Big Idea: When we follow God’s way, it sets us apart.
God Story: Seth to Noah | Genesis 6-8
Key Verse: “God, see what is in my heart. Know what is there. Test me. Know what I’m thinking. See if there’s anything in my life you don’t like. Help me live in the way that is always right.” Psalm 139:23-24

  1. BRAINSTORM items that you set apart and why. Example: when you eat a certain candy, do you save one colour of it until last? Then discuss why following God’s way sets us apart.
  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!)
