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 3

 

What we learned today

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.

 

Where we're headed next time

Big Idea: God takes care of me (part 2)

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.

 

Did you know?

  • The Sea of Galilee sits 686 feet below sea level, and it’s not uncommon for violent storms to arise producing waves over seven feet high!

  • Jesus slept soundly during the storm while His disciples were fearing for their lives.

 

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.

  • If you were Elijah, what kind of food would you have liked the ravens to bring you?

  • What kind of food did the ravens bring to Elijah?

 

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: (Insert your child’s name), may you know that God cares for you and loves you.
