May 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.

The Bible, God’s Word.

In this month’s Daily Bible Reading plan, kids will hear that the Bible is God’s message to the world. God’s Word is true. It shines light to guide our paths in righteous living that honors Him.

Kids will learn about the Ten Commandments God gave Moses on Mount Sinai. Through the lives of Old Testament prophets and kings, kids will learn about the importance of obeying God’s Word. While some people promised to follow God’s instructions completely, others ignored and disrespected them.

As God leads, share your love for His Word and how Its words guide you. Stress that the Bible is not just a set of rules to follow. It is God’s powerful message about Himself and His plan of salvation. Encourage your kids to develop the desire and habit of reading daily from their Bibles.

Easter is Here!

While families enjoy candy, egg hunts, and other traditions, it can be easy to brush past the real reason to celebrate: the resurrection of Jesus! Of course, family traditions are not inherently bad, but we hope that the Daily Bible Reading plan will help you guide kids this month to focus on Jesus alone.

This month’s DBR begins with Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection and how Jesus took the punishment for sin. Then we focus on Jesus’ life on earth following His resurrection.

We hope this month will be one of celebration of the risen Lord! As you teach your kids, know that the Kids Ministry team is praying that the Holy Spirit will draw many children to Jesus and His saving grace.

What Does The Church Do?

In this month’s Daily Bible Reading, kids will hear about God’s intentional plan for His church.

In both the Old and New Testaments, God’s people are called to worship Him and give Him glory. From the Old Testament kids will hear how Solomon obeyed God’s detailed instructions and built the temple. Then from the New Testament, kids will discover how the early church needed and appointed helpers. Kids also will learn about two ordinances of the church: baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Help your child understand baptism is an outward symbol
that a believer has trusted Jesus as Savior and Lord. Emphasize that believers participate in the Lord’s Supper
to remember what Jesus did when He died on the cross for their sins.

As you learn together about baptism and the Lord’s Supper, your child might have questions about trusting Jesus as Savior and Lord. Follow the direction of the Holy Spirit and gently answer his/her questions. Offer to talk more about God’s love for them and the grace He offers through Jesus.

Once your child has made the decision to follow Jesus and asks Him to be their Lord and Savior, contact your Kids Ministry Office to schedule a decision counsel. Together we will make sure your child understands the decision to follow Jesus and the meaning of baptism. At the end of the meeting you will receive instructions to schedule baptism.

Good News for Everyone!

In the start of the new year, kids will learn about the best news ever: the good news of Jesus! This month’s Daily Bible Reading focuses on the fact that Jesus came to earth so people might be reconciled to God. Kids will focus on stories of how Jesus and others shared this good news.

The Kids Ministry team knows that you have such a great opportunity to lay a foundation for the gospel in your kids’ lives. Pray for the Holy Spirit’s guidance as you dig deeper together, as a family, every day! Pray also that the Spirit would move and bring your child(ren) to know the Savior.

Know that our team is praying that God will give you boldness and sensitivity as you speak from your heart about God’s saving grace—the best gift ever!

Preschool Discipleship Calendar

The CFBC Preschool Ministry has designed some quickie ideas for you to use this summer as you disciple your preschoolers! Presented in calendar format, pop this on the refrigerator for easy access through the day…and use these ideas as you “teach them diligently (repeat them again and again) to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. (Deuteronomy 6:7)” Remember, children learn through repetition, so repeat, repeat repeat…again and again, multiple times a day!

The days are formatted by age, as follows, but many suggestions can be used for different age groups:

  • Sundays | Sundays at Home Life Group Lesson
  • Mondays | Baby Church
  • Tuesdays | Toddler Tidbits
  • Wednesdays | Hump Day Happies (for middle preschoolers)
  • Thursdays | Thursday Thoughts (for older preschoolers)
  • Fridays | Music Moments
  • Saturdays | How to Raise Spiritual Kids (parent ideas)
