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 4


What we learned today

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.


Where we're headed next time

Big Idea: God is with me (part 1)

1 Kings 19v9–18 God called to Elijah in a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard this, he went out to meet with the Lord.


Dig into God’s word.

Read 1 Kings 19v11–13a. After reading, remind your child that just as God was with Elijah in the cave, God is with us.


Connect as a family

Your child is capable of imitating sounds. Use your voice inflection to create a verbal picture of the wind, fire, earthquake, and the whisper of God. Encourage your child to repeat the sounds you make.

  • Did Jesus stay dead? 

  • No, He came back to life!



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.

Read Psalm 46v1 “God is our refuge and strength, an
ever-present help in trouble.”
