The Parent Weekly

 
 

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, Spring: Lesson 10

 

What we learned today

Big Idea: God is Love (part 2)

Acts 11v19–30. The apostles shared God’s love with the people in Antioch, and many of them decided to follow Jesus. As Barnabas and Paul returned to teach, God’s love prompted the church in Antioch to help provide for the people in Jerusalem who were facing a famine.

 

Where we're headed next time

Big Idea: God listens to our prayers

Acts 12v1–19 King Herod imprisoned Peter, putting him under heavy guard while he awaited his trial. Peter’s friends gathered to pray for him. God heard their prayers and sent an angel to free Peter from prison.

 

Dig into God’s word

Read Acts 12v4–7. After reading, remind your child that it was only through prayer that Peter’s freedom was possible. You may also want to say that Peter was in jail, but not because he had made bad choices. He had only obeyed God and was making good choices!

 

Connect as a family

Your child can learn about prayer and may enjoy folding her hands or kneeling to pray.

  • What are some things you pray about?

  • Do you think God is listening when you pray?

 

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 Matthew 19v26: “Jesus looked at them and said, ‘… with God all things are possible.’”
