Table Talk I Week of November 16

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 “I can thank God for food.” Moses and the Israelites were worried because they weren’t sure where they would find food, but then God provided them with exactly what they needed each day! God gives us what we need, too, including food to eat, so we can choose to be thankful. Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.

Question 1: When the Israelites were traveling in the desert, they complained because they were hungry and tired. God heard them complain and gave them food. What food did God give them? (manna and quail)
Question 2: Did God give them the food they needed every day, or just one time? (every day)
Question 3: Can you thank God for the food He’s given you — even the foods you don’t like? (yes)

 


MOTION

1ST – 5TH GRADE

This weekend, we learned about the importance of spending time in God’s Word and putting what we’ve learned into practice. No matter what problems we face, the Bible has solutions. When we read our Bibles and hide God’s Word in our hearts, we’ll be equipped to survive life’s storms. Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.

Question 1: Why do you think it’s important to read the Bible?
Question 2: What is one Bible verse or story that has helped you in a tough situation or taught you something important?
Question 3: When you aren’t sure where to start in your Bible, or when you don’t understand what something means, who are some people you could ask for help?


Safari :: Week of November 16

WE’RE LEARNING… I can thank God for everything.
MEMORY VERSE: “Always give thanks to God.” Ephesians 5:20 (NCV)
BIBLE STORY: Ten Lepers I Esther 1-10

Grab a blanket and play this fun game with your toddler to help them remember they can thank God for everything!

Say, “If you can thank God for your (e.g., family, friends, toys, food, etc.), shake the blanket as fast as you can!” Repeat the activity, each time choosing a different example of something they can be thankful for.

After the activity, say, “God has given us so many wonderful things, and we can thank Him for everything! Who can thank God for everything?” Encourage your toddler to say, “I can thank God for everything!”


Motion :: Week of November 16

It may not sound like fun to learn spiritual disciplines, but here’s the thing — spiritual disciplines aren’t boring. They’re vital, and we absolutely can’t survive this life without them. During this series, kids will learn that the spiritual disciplines of praying, solitude, reading the Bible, and asking questions are not chores on a to-do list, but life-saving survival skills!

This week, we tuned into the Loop Show and took a look at Matthew 17:24-25, to learn that we can build a solid foundation for our lives by spending time in God’s Word and practicing what it says.

When we dig into the Bible and put what it says into practice, we’re building a solid foundation for our lives. No matter what kinds of problems we face, God’s Word has advice and solutions. If we want His Word to hold us up in hard times, we have to spend time reading it and practicing what it says.

At bedtime this week, read Matthew 17:24-25 and pray together. Pray your child will see the value in spending time in God’s Word. Pray they’ll prioritize setting aside time each day to read their Bibles and put God’s Word into practice.

Quest :: Week of November 16

Throughout the month, preschoolers will learn to be thankful for their family, friends, and food. They’ll learn that saying “thank you” is just as important as being thankful. Imagine preschoolers learning to tell God thank you — for EVERYTHING — all while having fun with their Group Leaders and friends. Imagine them growing up giving thanks to the Lord with their WHOLE heart.

In this week’s Bible story, we learned about the time when God provided manna for the Israelites to eat while they were traveling in the desert.

As you drive this week, allow your child to pick a favorite snack for the car ride. As you drive, ask your child why they like that food so much. Then encourage your child to thank God for their food.

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 “I can thank God for my friends.” David and Jonathan were the best of friends. Each one looked out for the other, and they loved to share with each other. We can thank God for the friends who help us, share with us, encourage us, and make us laugh. Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.

Question 1: Why were David and Jonathan thankful for each other? (They were good friends and promised to look out for each other.)
Question 2: Who is a friend you can thank God for? Why are you thankful for them?
Question 3: What makes someone a good friend? How can you be a good friend to others?

 


MOTION

1ST – 5TH GRADE

This weekend, we learned about setting aside quiet time to be with God. It’s hard to hear from God and grow in our relationship with Him when we’re surrounded by distractions, but setting aside time for silence and solitude helps us focus on God and hear what He has to say. Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.

Question 1: What are some things that distract you from spending time with God?
Question 2: How can you help yourself not become distracted by those things?
Question 3: When will you set aside time to pray and read your Bible?
