Hey parents!

At City Chapel, we don't babysit kids on Sunday mornings. We empower families to raise up kids who love Jesus. That's why we have this resource to help you, as the parent, bring the teaching from Sunday morning to your dinner table.

Please read over the content with your kids and discuss how the lesson applies to their lives.

Be sure to check the challenge at the end. Thank you for taking the time to invest in your children's spiritual growth!


For toddlers (3-5 yrs)

IN THE CAR:  Ask your child what they learned about this week:

     No bug is harder to catch than the grasshopper. When they see trouble coming, they jump to safety. God wants us to jump and flee from temptation. Genesis 19:12-29, Lot Flees from Sodom and Gomorrah

 

LOT IN  SODOM

 

AT DINNER: Here are some great discussion starters:

- Why did Lot and his family run from their home?

- Why does God want us to flee from sin?

- What can we do when people are trying to talk us into doing the wrong thing? 

 

PARENT TIME: What you need to know:

     You can’t always be there to help your kids make the right choice, but you can equip them with the wisdom to make that decision. Pray that your kids will stand strong against temptation, and never shy away from teaching them right and wrong. 

 

MEMORY VERSE:  Quiz your child on this week’s memory verse:

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.”
Psalm 19:1 (NIV
)


CHALLENGE:  

     Go out and try to catch some grasshoppers or bugs or other tiny creatures. How good are they at getting away? What are some things we can do to get away from sin? 


 

FOR ELEMENTARY (6-11 YRS)

IN THE CAR:  Ask your child what they learned about this week:

           Last week we read about the miracle that Jesus performed when he feed 5000 men with just 5 loaves of bread and two fish.  This miracle taught us that Jesus cares for his people and that we could turn to him for our needs and he is ready to help.

         This week, we talked about the first miracle that Jesus ever did.  Jesus and his mom and some of the disciples went to a wedding in Cana.  Everyone was having a great time dancing and celebrating until they found out that the party had run out of wine to serve.  This was a big deal back then.  Running out of wine to serve would ruin the party.  So, Mary asked Jesus to help.  John  2:1-11, Jesus changes water into wine.

JESUS TURNS WATER INTO WINE

 

AT DINNER:  Here are some great discussion starters:

- What is the difference between magic and a miracle?

- What is the miracle that Jesus performed at the wedding?

- What does this miracle tell us about Jesus?

 

PARENT TIME: What you need to know:

     This miracle is a sign of who Jesus is and what he is about.  It also portrays Jesus as loving and compassionate; deeply interested in the lives of others. Jesus shows he can do the impossible; indicating that he is no ordinary human being. He is divine- human and yet also the Son of God.

MEMORY VERSE:

“Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."  Matthew 19:26 NIV


CHALLENGE:  

     Search through the bible with your kids today and see what other miracles have been performed that involve water.  Read each one together and discuss what each miracle tells us about Jesus?
