The Parent Weekly

We believe parents are the primary teachers in a child's life. Because of this, we post a Parent Weekly each Sunday which includes big ideas from that week’s teaching, the memory verse, questions for family discussion, and a look at where we’re headed the following week. Our hope is for this to be a helpful tool as you continue raising your kids to love God and love people.

Welcome, you'll find the most recent lessons below:

 

 

Year 1, Fall: Lesson 10

 

What we learned today

Big Idea: God Speaks (Part 2)

1 Samuel 3 As a young man, the prophet Samuel lived in the temple studying under Eli the priest. One night, as Samuel was sleeping, he heard someone call his name. Eli realized it was God’s voice Samuel was hearing. He told Samuel to tell God that he was present and listening.

 

Where we're headed next time

Big Idea: God is worshipped (Part 1)

Worshipping through Psalms. Psalm 27v6; 30v11; 95v2; 98v4; 108v1; 149v3. The God of all creation is holy and worthy of all worship. We were created to worship Him. Scripture tells us that if God’s people do not praise Him for who He is, the rocks will cry out in praise of Him.

 

Did you know?

Share these facts to get the conversation started:

  • All of creation was made to worship God.

  • Worship is not just singing songs to God—it is an attitude of awe, thankfulness, service, and praise that can be part of our lives every day (Luke 19v37–40).

 

Connect as a family

Read Psalm 95v1–6. Remind your child that God is worthy of our worship because He is above all.

After reading the Scripture passage, discuss these thoughts together:

  • Explain to your children that you can worship God in everything you do. Dancing, giving, art, singing, silence, sharing, and thanksgiving are just some of the ways we can worship Him.

  • Share with your child the ways in which you worship God. Talk together about why we worship Him. 

Your child learns by mimicking your actions. Allow her to imitate your posture as she watches you praise God for who He is in the everyday rhythm of your life.

 

Blessing

Blessings are often used in the Bible. A blessing can be a prayer of commission, a portion of Scripture, or words to encourage and guide.

Open a Bible and read Psalm 95v6: Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.

A blessing to pray over your child: (Child’s name), may you always remember that you were made to worship God.
