QUEST 

3 YEARS – KINDERGARTEN

This weekend we learned the Bible teaches us how to live. God’s Word is filled with wisdom that helps us live His way, and His way is always the best.

Question 1: In the story Jesus told in Matthew 7:24-27, the man who built his house on the rock made the wise choice. Where can you learn how to make wise choices? (The Bible)
Question 2: God wants us to spend time with Him so He can show us the best way to live our lives. What is one way you can spend time with God? (pray, read the Bible, come to church)
Question 3: When we have questions about what the Bible teaches us or when we want to know more about how to make right choices, we can ask people who know a lot about the Bible. Who is someone you know who knows a lot about the Bible?

Question 2: Where are some places you gather with others to help each other grow closer to God?

Putting Prayer First

Every parent wants to make sure their child’s new school year gets off to a strong start. It’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of checking all the items off their school supply lists and buying new shoes. However, if we neglect to spend intentional time in prayer for our kids and their new year, we miss an important opportunity.

We want to make sure you’re equipped to cover your child in prayer at the start of this school year. To do that, we’re sharing “30 Ways to Pray for Your Child.” You can choose one prayer focus per day for the first month of the school year, or you can work through them at your own pace. You can pray these over your child in your private prayer time or use them as a focal point for your prayers with your child each day.

However you choose to use them, we encourage you to download this prayer card and pray through the suggested topics. We can’t wait to hear what God does through your children in their school this year!

SAFARI TODDLERS
1 – 2 YEARS OLD

This month we’re learning, “I can help others.” When we put others first and look for ways to help, we can show them how much God loves them!

  • Jesus had 12 helpers who helped Him teach others about God’s love. Can we help others, too? (yes)
  • Do we show God’s love to others when we help them? (yes)

 


QUEST 

3 YEARS – KINDERGARTEN

This weekend we learned Jesus gives us the power to have self-control and have patience.

  • What is self-control? (Self-control is thinking about what you’re going to say or do next so that you make the right choice.)
  • When is it hard to have self-control? (when people are unkind to us, when we want to do something our parents don’t want us to, etc.)
  • In our Bible story, we learned about a letter that Paul wrote to his friend Timothy. Timothy was young, but Paul encouraged him to set an example for others. When you show self-control even though you’re young, you set an example for everyone around you! What is one way you can show self-control? (choosing to speak kindly to everyone, choosing to share even when you don’t want to, choosing to stop after eating one cookie instead of begging for more, etc.)

 


MOTION

1ST – 5TH GRADE

This weekend we learned to serve others without looking for applause. When we decide to give in secret, the act of service becomes completely about the other person and not ourselves.

  • Read Matthew 6:1-4. How does the Bible say we should serve? Should we serve others and seek a reward?
  • What are some fun ways you can serve others without them ever knowing it?
  • Applause might feel good, but it shouldn’t be the reason we serve. When you start to want applause/credit, how can you remember to serve others for the right reason?
