PARENTS, YOU ARE THE SPIRITUAL LEADERS FOR YOUR KIDS

PARENTS ARE SPIRITUAL LEADERS

Let me ask you a question...
Is your love for the Bible shaping your children to look at the world through God's eyes?
As parents, you are leaving a legacy to all of the children in your life.  They watch you.  They hear your conversations.  They respond to the world the way they see you respond to the world.

In today's society, many parents have lost sight of their calling to be the spiritual leader in their children's lives. But God, in His wisdom, has created an opportunity for parents to reclaim that leadership.  He has slowed the pace of our lives dramatically in a short period of time.  We are all about to be challenged in ways like never before.  Are you ready?  

God tells us in His word, "So, do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of it's own," (Matthew 6:34).  Jesus encouraged His disciples not to worry about food, clothes, or what tomorrow may bring.

When it comes to children, we'd love to take this opportunity to partner with our parents. We want to walk side by side with you to instill God's Word in their hearts, and to provide some tools that will help you maintain your position as the spiritual leader in your home during these uncertain times.

At the beginning of March, we started using a wonderful new curriculum called, "Answers in Genesis."  This curriculum helps build a firm foundation of faith based on the truth of God's Word.  Each lesson is geared toward helping our children defend their faith based on scripture.  Here is a quick review of our past lessons.

  • Lesson 1:  God's Word is true, perfect, sweeter than honey, and more valuable than gold. 
  • Lesson 2:   God is holy, He is loving, He is infinite and unsearchable.  He is also sovereign and in complete control of everything. 
  • Lesson 3:  God is eternal.  He was, and is, and always will be.  He was here before time was created and will be forever and ever.

Angela (Preschool Director) and I have enjoyed the questions and interactions of your children each week as we have taught these lessons in Kids Worship and in Wee Worship.  We hope to continue this momentum by posting new lessons on our Website and on Facebook each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. until we are able to meet together again.  We also want to give your children opportunities to ask questions and participate in some fun online challenges and games.  

With that said, this Sunday, we will be teaching Lesson 4:  The Trinity.  Each lesson will have downloadable resources available for both preschoolers and children. You can download and print these attachments, Take Home pages, and notes, etc., by clicking HERE.  Encourage your children to grab their Bibles and join us for worship!  We would like to invite you to:

  • Post questions and comments from your children in the comments beneath the interactive video on Facebook.
  • Take a picture with them of their finished Take Home page.
  • Stay connected on our Facebook page during the week for fun challenges and games.
  • Pray with your children daily.

The last point above is a challenge we really want you parents to commit to over the course of these online gatherings. Pray with your children daily.  They are learning that prayer has lots of power, because our God is so powerful.  Join us as we pray for our families, nation, and leaders.  

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God," (Philippians 4:6).
