Vegetarian: 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, kids began a series about Daniel called The Faithful, and got a picture of what it looks like to remain faithful to God even when it is difficult.
Series: Daniel | The Faithful
Big Idea: God loves our faith in action.
God Story: Daniel 1 | The Vegetarians
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 1:6-16. Ask: What sticks out to you? Why do you think Daniel and his friends did this? Do you think it would have been difficult to do that if you were Daniel? Why do you think it is important that we are faithful to God?
  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. CHALLENGE Take a day or maybe even a week of eating as a vegetarian and only drinking water. Consider what that must have been like for Daniel and his friends.
