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.

Welcome, you'll find the most recent lessons below:

 

 

Year 1, Winter: Lesson 13

 

What we learned today

Big Idea: Remember and Celebrate. Several times a year, the Israelites gathered together for a festival to remember and celebrate God.

 

Where we're headed next time

Big Idea: God is with me. (part 1)

Matthew 14v22–33; Mark 6v45–51 After praying, Jesus walked on the water to meet the disciples, who were out on the lake in a boat. Peter walked out on the water to meet Jesus. When Peter became afraid and began to sink, Jesus saved him.

 

Dig into God’s word.

Read Matthew 14v28–31.

After reading, remind your child that God is with her, just as Jesus was with Peter.

 

Connect as a family

After reading the Scripture passage, discuss these thoughts together:

  • How did Jesus get to His friends who were out on the lake?

  • Could anyone but God do this? NO! Jesus is God.

Your child may enjoy playing with water. During bath time, give her a few objects and discuss which ones sink and which ones float.

 

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.

Open a Bible and read Psalm 73v28a: “But as for me, it is good to be near God.”

A blessing to pray over your child: (Insert your child’s name), may you enjoy being near God.
