Christ Church families, another week has passed and here we are again preparing for the Lord’s day, on which we will login and worship together over the internet. While our hearts yearn to be together in prayer and fellowship, we are grateful that we can still congregate in praise, adoration, and petition from our homes around the country and world. This week for kids, I’ve provided a video and worksheets for during the live stream as well as the Big Beliefs! devotionals and other activities to do throughout the week. May these offer some support for your family worship times.
DURING THE LIVE STREAM,
- Orange Line kids may complete this week’s Kid Connect.
- Red and Green Line kids are invited to watch a Sunday School lesson (11:44) on Jesus Taught in Nazareth (Luke 4) from “Volume 7: Jesus the Messiah” of The Gospel Project:
3 FAMILY DINNER DEVOTIONALS FROM BIG BELIEFS! TO READ THROUGHOUT THE WEEK
- Discuss the lesson together: Which Old Testament prophet wrote the scroll that Jesus read from? When did Isaiah write these words? What did Jesus teach about the Messiah? How did the people of Nazareth respond to Jesus? What makes people special? People are special because God made us in His own image.
- Play true or false
- Place a Bible at one end of the room and a large X drawn on paper at the other end. Tell your child(ren) that you will say something, and if they think it is truth from God’s Word, they should move to the Bible. If they think you’ve said something false, they should move to the X. Encourage your kid(s) to return to the middle of the room between statements. Use the following statements:
- Isaiah’s words were not about Jesus. (false)
- Jesus taught that He is the Messiah. (true)
- God sent Jesus to make poor people rich. (false)
- Jesus came to tell good news to people who were hurting. (true)
- Only good people are special to God. (false)
- All people are special because God made us in His own image. (true)
- Say Good job deciding what was true and what was false! Knowing what God’s Word says is important so we can know when someone is saying something that is not true. When Jesus taught that He is the Messiah, people in Nazareth did not think He was telling the truth. But He was! Jesus is the one God promised to send.
SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES FOR CHILD(REN) TO DO
