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.

Remember & Celebrate

Festival of Atonement: Celebrating God's Righteousness 

 

Did you know?

Share these facts to get the conversation started:

  • The Israelites celebrated seven annual feasts and festivals: Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, Festival of First Fruits, Feast of Harvest, Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and Feast of Tabernacles (or Booths). 

  • During the feasts, the Israelites ate, danced, sang, played instruments, prayed, and offered sacrifices to God. 

  • The Day of Atonement celebrated God’s righteousness. It was a reflective and often solemn festival that consisted of fasting, prayer, and repentance.

  • The New Testament significance of the Day of Atonement lies in Christ, our High Priest, who shed His blood once and for all to make atonement for our sins before God. 

 

Connect as a family

Set aside an evening to remember and celebrate with a fun family dinner. Choose a favorite meal (pizza, tacos, or another family favorite) and enlist everyone to help prepare it. When you sit down to eat, spend time remembering what God has done in your lives and how you have seen God work in the lives of your friends and family members. Read Psalm 16 together. 


After reading the Scripture passage, discuss these questions together:

  • Are there areas of your life where you need to ask for God’s forgiveness? 

  • How can we show our thankfulness to God for sending Jesus?

  • What are some things we can remember and celebrate this week?
