SAFARI TODDLERS
1 – 2 YEARS OLD

Read Matthew 4:18-22 together as a family. Use a children’s Bible if you have one (pages 308-310 in The Beginner’s Bible or pages 306-307 in God’s Story for Me Bible Storybook) or use this Bible story card at home. 

Then play this fun game to help them remember that we can follow Jesus!

Explain you’ll play a game like “Follow-The-Leader.” Then encourage your toddler to follow you in marching around your home. While you march, read each of the prompts below and encourage your toddler to respond:

  • “If you can you follow Jesus by being kind to others, give yourself a hug!”
  • “If you can you follow Jesus by being a good friend, clap your hands!”
  • “If you can follow Jesus by showing love to everyone, march as slowly as you can!”
  • “If you can follow Jesus by making right choices, pat your head!”
  • “If you can follow Jesus by helping others, march as fast as you can!”
  • “If you can follow Jesus by telling others about God’s love, wave your arms in the air!”

Continue the activity for as long as your toddler is interested.

After the activity, say, “Great job! Remember, Jesus is the BEST leader, and He wants you to follow Him. Who can follow Jesus?” Encourage your toddler to say, “I can follow Jesus!”

Table Talk I Week of March 7

Family life is busy, so being intentional with the time you do have is more important than ever. Table Talk helps mealtime matter — whether it’s at the soccer field, in the car, or around the table. Let this resource be a tool to connect your family and create faith-based conversations with your Quest and Motion children.

 

QUEST  3 YEARS – KINDERGARTEN

This weekend, we learned “Jesus says, ‘Follow me.’” Jesus found Andrew, Peter, James, and John — four normal fishermen — and led them to become faithful disciples by calling them with those two simple words: “Follow me.” Those men chose to follow Jesus, and their written words still help us follow Jesus many years later. To watch this week’s video with your child, download the Parent Cue app.

Question 1: What were Andrew, Peter, James, and John doing when Jesus called out to them? (fishing)
Question 2: Did Jesus invite them to play with Him or to follow Him? (follow Him)
Question 3: Did Jesus say He would teach them how to tell people about God or how to be better at catching fish? (how to tell people about God)

 

MOTION 1ST – 5TH GRADE

This weekend, we learned about the importance of having a positive attitude. Our thoughts drive what we say and do, so an excellent attitude follows excellent thoughts. This doesn’t mean we have to pretend everything is great all the time, but when we choose to focus on how good and great God is — even on the hard days — our attitudes can still be positive. To watch this week’s Loop Show video with your kid, click here.

Question 1: When is it hard for you to have a positive attitude?
Question 2: What helps you turn your attitude around when your thoughts are stuck in a negative place?
Question 3: Who is someone you know who maintains a positive attitude? Share an example of a time when you saw this person keep a positive attitude in a difficult situation.


Table Talk I Week of February 29

Family life is busy, so being intentional with the time you do have is more important than ever. Table Talk helps mealtime matter — whether it’s at the soccer field, in the car, or around the table. Let this resource be a tool to connect your family and create faith-based conversations with your Quest and Motion children.

 


QUEST 

3 YEARS – KINDERGARTEN

This weekend, we learned “John told people that Jesus is special.” John the Baptist knew who the best leader in the world was, and he spent his life teaching people how to follow Jesus. Jesus is still the best leader ever, and we can still choose to follow Him today!

To watch this week’s video with your child, download the Parent Cue app.

Question 1: God gave John a special job – to tell people He was sending someone very special. Was John supposed to tell people God was sending a superhero or the Savior? (the Savior)
Question 2: When he taught people to be more like Jesus, did John tell people to share with others and be happy with what they had, or did he tell them to keep everything for themselves and try to get more stuff? (He told them to share and to be happy with what they had.)
Question 3: What did John do to people when they wanted to show others God had forgiven them for the wrong things they did? (He baptized them.)

 


MOTION

1ST – 5TH GRADE

This weekend, we learned being a child of God comes with an eternal upgrade: we become heirs of God. He loves each of us so much that He treats us as His own children, and when we choose to follow God, we are able to live without fear, knowing we’ll spend eternity with Him.

To watch this week’s Loop Show video with your kid, click here.

Question 1: Does God love some people more than others, or does He love everyone the same amount?
Question 2: Romans 8:17 talks about an inheritance from God. What’s an inheritance?
Question 3: What do you think is the best thing about being a child of God?

QUEST 

3 YEARS – KINDERGARTEN

This weekend, we learned “We can love like Jesus.” Jesus loves EVERYONE. He loves us even when we make wrong choices, and He will always choose to be our friend, no matter what. Since Jesus shows such big love to us, we should show that kind of big love to others! Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.

Question 1: Does Jesus stop loving us when we make bad choices? (no)
Question 2: Can you think of a time when someone made you sad or mad? Did you treat them with love anyway? (If your child can’t think of a time they were sad or mad, help them. Say something like “what about that time when… “ to get them thinking. Also, ask them why they responded the way they did. Would Jesus have done anything differently?)
Question 3: Jesus wants us to love others the way He loves us. That means we should treat people kindly and show them love no matter what happens. Who can you show love to this week?

 


MOTION

1ST – 5TH GRADE

This weekend, we learned about dealing with family drama. We are all imperfect people, so we can’t expect our families to be perfect. The best thing we can do is to help set a positive tone in our families through understanding, compromising, and serving. Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.

Question 1: What commonly causes arguments or frustrations between people in your family?
Question 2: What’s one specific thing you could do to help reduce conflict in your family?
Question 3: Tell me three things about your family you can thank God for today.
