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 7

 

What we learned today

Big Idea: God cares for me (Part 1)

Exodus 16; Numbers 11v7–9. After leaving Egypt, the Israelites had a long road ahead of them. The people started complaining early in the journey. God heard their grumbling and told Moses He would send food from heaven. He also gave special instructions about taking only enough food for each day. When the people woke up the ground was covered in manna. God cares for His people.

 

Where we're headed next time

Big Idea: God cares for me (Part 2)

Exodus 16; Numbers 11v7–9. After leaving Egypt, the Israelites had a long road ahead of them. The people started complaining early in the journey. God heard their grumbling and told Moses He would send food from heaven. He also gave special instructions about taking only enough food for each day. When the people woke up the ground was covered in manna. God cares for His people.

 

Did you know?

Share these facts to get the conversation started:

  • The Israelites had never seen manna before; “manna” literally means “What is it?.”

  • On the sixth day of the week, the Israelites could gather enough for two days because God wanted them to rest on the Sabbath.

 

Connect as a family

Read Numbers 11v7–9. Remind your child how much God cared for the Israelites and how much He cares for us!

After reading the Scripture passage, discuss these questions together:

  • How did God care for the Israelites?

  • How does He care for you?

  • How Have you ever thrown a fit or temper tantrum? 

  • What is a better way to explain that you are frustrated—using your words or throwing a fit?

    These questions can easily extend into the rest of the week. Look for opportunities to bring conversations about how God is cares for me 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 139v14a: “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”

A blessing to pray over your child: (Child’s name), God loves you and takes care of you.
