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 5

 

What we learned today

Big Idea: God is mighty (part 1)

Exodus 14v13–15v21. In an effort to gain control, the king of Egypt enslaved God’s people. The people cried out to God for rescue. He sent Moses to lead the people out of Egypt. When the Israelites reached the Red Sea there was no place to go. God is mighty. He sent a great wind to part the Red Sea. When the sea parted, the people were able to cross safely through on the dry seabed.

 

Where we're headed next time

Big Idea: God is mighty (part 2)

Exodus 14v13–15v21. In an effort to gain control, the king of Egypt enslaved God’s people. The people cried out to God for rescue. He sent Moses to lead the people out of Egypt. When the Israelites reached the Red Sea there was no place to go. God is mighty. He sent a great wind to part the Red Sea. When the sea parted, the people were able to cross safely through on the dry seabed.

 

Did you know?

Share these facts to get the conversation started:

  • When Moses raised his staff, the Red Sea completely dried up so that the Israelites walked through on dry land!

  • Moses’s sister, Miriam, led the people in worship after they had crossed the sea!

 

Connect as a family

Your child may enjoy hearing the same stories over and over. As you tell him this part of The Big God Story, be sure to point out that it was God who was mighty enough to save the Israelites from the advancing army. Read Exodus 14v10–14; 15v19. Remind your child that our God is mightier than anyone or anything!

After reading the Scripture passage, discuss these questions together:

  • Do you think God’s people were scared when the army was chasing them?

  • How do you think they felt when they crossed the Red Sea?

  • How did God show the people that He is mighty? 

  • He parted the Red Sea and saved them from the king and his army.

These questions can easily extend into the rest of the week. Look for opportunities to bring conversations about how God is mighty into your everyday life as a family.

 

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 150v6: “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.”

A blessing to pray over your child: (Child’s name), God is mighty. You can always trust Him. May you praise and thank Him for who He is.
