Elementary, May 30: God’s Story in Our Life

Hi Journey Kids parents!

The Bible is filled with stories about God’s love for His people. This past year we’ve been through a lot of those stories. We’ve learned about Elijah and Elisha, Jonah and Daniel, Esther and Nehemiah, Nicodemus and Zacchaeus, Paul and Timothy. We’ve looked at the Christmas story and the Easter story. Each one shows us more and more about the incredible love of God. But the story is far from over. It continues on to this day – through the lives of the men, women, and children who follow Jesus.

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 videos here.] It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family.

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

Bible Story: God’s Story in Our Life

Big Idea: God’s story of love and redemption continues today through the lives of His children.

Memory Verse: “So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God by believing in Christ.” Galatians 3:26 (NIrV)

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

God wants us to participate in this ongoing story. He is still the God of love and redemption. He still invites us to become a part of His family – adopted as His children. I hope and pray that you have experienced that love and redemption. I hope and pray that you have become a child of God by believing in the good news of Jesus.
