God: 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.

Grades 1-5

Summary: This week in kidmax, kids learned all about who God is, and that the key focus of who God is, is love!
Series: Characters
Big Idea: God is love, and his love is powerful.
God Story: Who is God? | A walk through the whole Bible! & Romans 8:38-39
Key Verse: “I am absolutely sure that not even death or life can separate us from God’s love. Not even angels or demons, the present or the future, or any powers can separate us.” Romans 8:38

  1. DISCUSS Because God is love, and his love is powerful, we can always trust that God will love us no matter what. Think of someone you love very much, maybe a family member or dear friend. Has there been a time where it was hard to love them? Did you love them anyways? Why or why not? How is God’s love different than our love? How can we love more like how God does?
  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!)
  3. Check out the midweek activity page!
