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 9

 

What we learned today

Big Idea: God is Love (part 1)

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 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.

 

Did you know?

  • According to Acts 11v26, it was in Antioch that believers were first called “Christians.”

  • Early Christians identified each other by drawing an arc in the sand, and if the other person drew a second arc (forming the shape of a fish) they knew they were both believers.

 

Connect as a family

Praise your child’s effort to help with housework and remind him that helping your family honors God.

  • Remind your child that God’s love should help us to love other people.

  • Discuss the ways your child can show love to those around him

 

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.

A blessing to pray over your child: (child’s name), God is love. May you know how much He loves you.
