Elementary, August 30: Remembering God’s Goodness

Hi Journey Kids parents!

Did you know one of the most frequent commands in the entire Bible is to remember what God has done? Remembering what God has done in the past helps us trust Him in the present. This weekend, we’re talking about when God commanded Israel to remember how He’d rescued them in a really tangible way – by setting up a pillar of rocks.

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: Remembering God’s Goodness

Big Idea: God wants us to remember all of the great things He has done for us.

Memory Verse: “Remember the wonderful things he has done. Remember his miracles and how he judged our enemies.” Psalm 105:5 (NIrV)

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

God still wants us to remember all the good He has done in our lives. Remembering still helps us trust Him – now and in the future. Take time this week to remember. Consider even finding a tangible way to remember – with rocks or sticky notes or just a simple journal. But don’t forget to remember.
