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.

Year 1, Summer: Lesson 2


What we learned today

Big Idea: God is powerful (part 2)

1 Samuel 16—17. God had rejected Saul as king and sent Samuel to the house of Jesse where he would choose Israel’s new king. Samuel anointed David. God’s Spirit was on David and when he fought Goliath, David was victorious.


Where we're headed next time

Big Idea: God takes care of me (part 1)

1 Kings 17v1–6 Elijah obeyed God’s words. Everything happened just as God had said. The ravens brought Elijah bread and meat to eat and he drank from the brook. God took care of Elijah


Dig into God’s word.

  • Read Mark 4v35–41. After reading, remind your child that God used the ravens to bring food for Elijah every day.


Connect as a family

Your child’s imagination is developing. During mealtime, allow your child to use her fork to “fly” her food to her mouth like the ravens flew to bring Elijah’s food.

  • Who took care of Elijah while he was hiding at the brook?

  • God cared for Elijah by sending the ravens to bring food.



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 1 John 4v8b: “God is love.”
