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.

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.

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.

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!

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.)

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.

Question 1: Does God love some people more than others, or does He love everyone the same amount?

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.

QUEST 

3 YEARS – KINDERGARTEN

This weekend, we learned “Jesus is our friend even when no one else is.” Jesus knew all the wrong things the unloved woman had done. But when everyone else made fun of her and tried to punish her for the bad choices she’d made, Jesus chose forgiveness and became her friend. Even when we feel like no one else wants to be our friend, Jesus always will. Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.

Question 1: Had the unloved woman made a lot of bad choices? (yes)
Question 2: Did Jesus decide not to be her friend because of her bad choices? (no)
Question 3: Have you ever felt lonely or like you didn’t have a friend to talk to? Who will always be your friend, no matter what? (Jesus)

 


MOTION

1ST – 5TH GRADE

This weekend, we learned about finding our value in who God says we are instead of seeking approval from others. We already have God’s full love and attention, so we don’t need to seek those from anyone else. Instead, we should focus on being the best friend we can be to others. Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.

Question 1: What do you usually do when you want someone’s attention?
Question 2: Is it wrong to enjoy the attention others give us? (No, but it becomes a problem when you start relying on other people’s attention or approval to feel good about yourself.)
Question 3: Do you think you’re a good friend? Why or why not?

QUEST 

3 YEARS – KINDERGARTEN

This weekend, we learned “Jesus loves us even when we do something wrong.” Zacchaeus didn’t have many friends because he cheated a lot of people out of their money. Jesus knew Zacchaeus had done wrong things, but He loved Zacchaeus anyway and treated him like a friend. We do wrong things, too, but we can trust that Jesus will never stop loving us, no matter what. Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.

MOTION

1ST – 5TH GRADE

This weekend, we learned how to build friendships that last. Our friendships will never be perfect, but we can keep them strong by being ready to forgive others and by asking for forgiveness when we make mistakes. Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.

Question 1: Why do we need friends? Who are some of the friends you value most?
Question 2: When is it easy to forgive someone? When is it difficult to forgive? (You can also ask them what the differences are between when it’s easy and hard to help them think about WHY it’s sometimes easy or hard to forgive others.)
Question 3: Why do other people deserve our forgiveness? (God has already forgiven us unconditionally.)
