Kid Life Groups: November 1st

Paul Wrote About Families
(Grades 1st-5th)

Today 1st-5th Graders will hear that the Bible tells about God’s plan for families. Paul wrote about God’s plan for families in the Book of Ephesians. God wants families to love, respect, and help one another, which brings honor to Him.

Review the Bible story with your child by reading through Ephesians 5:22-33; 6:1-4. Note each of the points Paul made about God’s plan for families. Discuss how your family can follow God’s plan and work together to honor God.

Abram and Lot Worked Together
(Preschool)

When their workers started quarreling, Abram and Lot found a solution that kept the families from fighting. Tell your family members that each person should work however he can to get along with one another. This week, when family members have a disagreement, encourage them to decide on a way to solve the problem. Pray for your family to get along with one another.

Use these simple steps to guide your family during today’s Life Group time.

Step 1: Print Activity Pages

Print one for each child. This is a great tool to have as you go through the videos. Each download includes the Activity Page for your child and a One Conversation page for you to use with the Bible reference and story.


Step 2: Watch Bible Story Video

Before you press play, sit together and pray. Thank God for this special day to worship and learn about Him. Then, watch the Bible story video together.

November DBR

Daily Bible Reading (DBR) prepares 1st-5th Graders for what they will learn on Sunday. Your child will discover new and amazing things about God, Jesus and the Bible! Encourage your child to have a journal and write what they learn each day. Set a goal to spend time daily reading the Bible and praying with your child. Or encourage them to do so independently.

Follow Jesus’ Example

In this month’s Daily Bible Reading (DBR), kids will discover that people can follow Jesus’ example. Kids will focus on stories of Jesus’ interactions with people—specifically, His disciples, a tax collector, and some children. Kids also will hear how Jesus resisted temptation and how He prayed in the garden. All these Bible stories point to the fact that people can be in right relationship with God through Jesus—isn’t that the truth of the gospel?

Kids will be reminded that people are God’s most valuable creation. Because He loves us so much, He will help us take deliberate actions to follow Jesus and honor Him with our choices.

Kid Life Groups: October 25

Jesus Blessed the Children

Parents, today’s Bible story taught your child that God can help us value each person as Jesus did. Jesus helped His disciples realize that children were as valuable as everyone else they encountered.

Review the Bible story with your child. Remind her that Jesus knows every person is valuable. Make a list of people your child comes in contact with each week. Help her pray for each person and ask God to remind her that each person is unique and valuable to Him.

Use these simple steps to guide your family during today’s Life Group time.

Step 1: Print Activity Pages

Print one for each child. This is a great tool to have as you go through the videos. Each download includes the Activity Page for your child and a One Conversation page for you to use with the Bible reference and story.


Step 2: Watch Bible Story Video

Before you press play, sit together and pray. Thank God for this special day to worship and learn about Him. Then, watch the Bible story video together.

Preschool Bible Story

Paint Hearts
Gather: Kids Activity Page, paper, washable paint, paper plate, cardboard tube or heart stamps, painting smock, and marker.

  • Form a heart shape with the cardboard tube: Curve in on one side and push to a point the opposite side. Print the Weekly Verse across the bottom of a paper : John 13:15 Jesus said, “You should do as I have done for you.” Put a small amount of paint on a paper plate.
  • Go over the Kids Activity Page with your child. Discuss the Bible story and review the Weekly Verse together.
  • Have your child put on painting smock and show him/her how to dip the end of the cardboard tube (or heart stamp) into the paint. Demonstrate how to stamp hearts on the paper. Allow your child to stamp hearts all over his/her paper.
  • Read aloud the verse you printed on your child’s paper. Comment that Jesus loved people and we can, too.

Three’s – PreK
Follow Patterns
Gather: Kids Activity Page, Bible, chenille stems (pipe cleaner), plastic beads, and crayons.

  • Create 2-3 different bead patterns on chenille stems for your child to follow. Twist each stem into a J.

  • Give your child a few chenille stems and beads. Guide him/her to look at a sample beaded J and replicate the pattern on his/her stems. Twist the bottom of the chenille stem into a J shape.
  • Say that Jesus showed the way that people should live.
  • Mention that J is the first letter of Jesus. When your child looks at his/her beaded J stems, he/she can be reminded to live like Jesus.

Kindergarten
Trace And Draw A Life-Sized Picture

  • Have your child complete the Kids Activity Page. Discuss the Bible story and review the Weekly Verse together (John 13:15).

  • Ask your child to name some ways that kids can try to be like Jesus. Suggestions might include: forgive, love, help, give, and so forth. You could write these ideas on your child’s body paper or on a separate piece of paper. Pray with your child and ask God to give you both opportunities to love others.

1st-5th Grade

Bible Skills 

  • Have your child grab their Bible.    
  • Explain to your child that you will call out a letter.  They need to name a book of the Bile that begins with the letter you called out. 
  • Then your child needs to find that book in the Bible.  

Me, Not Me 

  • Label one side of the room “Me” and the other side “Not Me” 
  • Tell your children you will call out a characteristic and they will need to move to the side of the room that describes them. Then reset to the middle of the room each time.  
  • Characteristics: freckles, brown hair, green-eyes, left-handed, missing a tooth, has a brother, hair longer than chin, etc.  
  • When finished let your child know that each person is different.  In today’s story we will learn how Jesus values every person, no matter what.  

First Person Stories 

  • After hearing the Bible story.   Have your child close their eyes and imagine what it would be like to be there.  (the setting, the weather, the noise, what Jesus looked like, what others were doing, etc.) 
  • Then have your child tell you the story using “I” and “We” instead of “they.”  

4. Missions Emphasis

  • Teach kids to say the phrase: “Jesus elsker deg” (Jesus ehelsker deyg, Jesus loves you).
    • Note: For assistance in saying “Jesus elsker deg,” play the “Dove Boys Share Norway” video and fast-forward to the final 30 seconds.
  • Display the “Norway Photos.”
  • Comment that the Dove family chose to live in Norway so they could build relationships with people and tell them about Jesus.
  • Pray for the Dove family and the work they are doing in Norway.
  • Encourage kids to give money to missions offerings at church so more families can become missionaries and go all over the world, telling people that “Jesus elsker deg!”

5. Pray

  • Thank God for his love for us and forgiveness. 
  • Ask God to help us show love to all people. 
  • Thank God for creating your family and everyone in it.
