Table Talk I Week of December 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 is born.” Jesus wasn’t born in a fancy palace or even in a nice hospital. He wasn’t surrounded by famous or important people. Jesus was born in a simple stable with only His mother, father, and some animals around, but that doesn’t make His birth any less wonderful! The news that Jesus is born is worth celebrating! Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.

Question 1: Mary gave birth to a very special baby. What was his name? (Jesus)
Question 2: Where was Jesus born? (in a stable)
Question 3: Jesus’ birth might not have seemed very special, but He is special because He is God’s Son! Why did God give us His Son, Jesus? (because He loves us; to be our friend forever)

1ST – 5TH GRADE

This weekend, we learned about trusting God to be in control. When God sent Jesus to earth, He proved how much He loves us. When we grasp just how huge His love for us is, we can trust Him with every little detail of our lives. Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.

Question 1: How does Jesus’ birth demonstrate God’s great love for us?
Question 2: God loves and cares for us more than anything else He created. How does that help you trust Him?
Question 3: What is one way you can work on trusting God more? (e.g., asking Him to help you overcome a fear, choosing not to be anxious about something that is bothering you, believing He can help you overcome a difficult circumstance, etc.)

QUEST 

3 YEARS – KINDERGARTEN

This weekend, we learned “God told us He would give us Jesus.” An angel appeared to Mary and told her she would have a very special baby — God’s Son, Jesus! Mary was filled with wonder. When we think about God sending His Son, Jesus, to be with us on earth, our hearts are filled with wonder, too! Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.

Question 1: How did Mary feel when she saw the angel? (She was afraid.)
Question 2: What good news did the angel give to Mary? (Mary was going to have a baby — God’s Son, Jesus!)

1ST – 5TH GRADE

This weekend, we learned about generosity. Real generosity is something we do quietly, not something we do for attention or applause. God is the only One who needs to see the generous things we do to help others, and when He sees us giving from a grateful and joyful heart, He promises to reward our generosity! Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.

Question 1: When is it easy for you to be generous? When is it difficult?
Question 2: What was the last thing you gave to someone else? How did you feel after giving it to them?
Question 3: Why do you think God wants us to give secretly instead of publicly?

QUEST 

3 YEARS – KINDERGARTEN

This weekend, we learned “I can say thank you.” Jesus healed 10 lepers, but only one of them came back to thank Him. Not everyone remembers to bubble with thanks, but we want to make sure we always choose to stop and say thank you. Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.

Question 1: When Jesus healed the 10 lepers, did all of them go back to say “thank you” or just one of them? (just one of them)
Question 2: Just like the man who went back to give thanks, can you say “thank you” for everything God has given you? (yes)
Question 3: What are three things you can thank God for right now?

1ST – 5TH GRADE

This weekend, we learned that it’s actually good to ask God questions and wrestle with our faith. Sometimes our faith feels strong, like a brightly burning fire. Other times we feel full of doubt, and that fire begins to fade. Asking questions and striving to learn provide the friction we need to keep our “faith fires” burning. Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.

Question 1: Have you ever read something in a Bible story or learned something about our faith that didn’t make sense to you? (Parents, this could be a great opportunity to share with your child about any faith questions you’ve had!)
Question 2: When you have questions about your faith, who do you usually ask?
Question 3: Is God okay with us asking questions about our faith and what we learn in His Word? (Yes! God is wise and can handle all of our questions. He knows that asking questions and seeking out the answers will help us grow closer to Him.)

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)

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?

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.

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?
