Elementary, August 16: God’s Love and Forgiveness

Hi Journey Kids parents!

 This weekend we’re going to be learning one of the most important lessons ever—it’s a lesson about the magnitude of God’s love and forgiveness. Which is greater, God’s love or our sin? You probably know the answer to that question, but after this weekend, your kids will too!

 When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. (You can access the YouTube playlist here.) It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family. And don’t forget to participate in the worship videos from Yancy afterwards—one song is for older kids and one is for younger kids.

 Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

 Bible Story: God’s love and forgiveness

Big Idea: God’s love and forgiveness is greater than our sin.

Memory Verse: “But here is how God has shown his love for us. While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 (NIrV)

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:

 Sometimes it’s easy to know in your head that God’s love is greater than your sin, but I’m praying that this week you would know and believe that deep down in your soul.
