Hi Journey Kids parents!

We’re all in need of good news right now! Fortunately, as followers of Jesus, we have the best news ever—the news of Christ’s power over sin and death. This is the news the world needs to hear and God has chosen us as the people to deliver it. But are you ready? That’s what we’re going to talk about in today’s family lesson.

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. It’s designed to be both fun and interactive. (You can access the YouTube playlist here.) The video will prompt you to answer a question with your family. It’s a great way to engage spiritually with one another. Afterwards, there are two great worship videos from Yancy to choose from: one is for older kids and one is for younger kids.

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

Bible Story: Paul and Silas in Prison (Acts 16:16-40)

Big Idea: The good news of Jesus is for all people, so we should always be ready to share why we believe.

Memory Verse: “Always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks you about the hope you have.” 1 Peter 3:15 (NIrV)

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

And lastly, in this time of uncertainty, I want to leave you with this promise from God. It comes from Philippians 4:19-20. “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
