Elementary, October 4: Elijah vs. the Prophets of Baal

Hi Journey Kids parents!

There is only one God and He deserves our complete and total allegiance. Yet, we so often put anything and everything ahead of Him. This isn’t a new problem, though. It’s been happening almost since the dawn of time. But, over and over again, God has proven to be the one true God – like He did when his prophet, Elijah, faced off with the prophets of a false god named Baal.

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. After the lesson, a worship song will play so you can sing along with your kids!

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

Bible Story: Elijah vs. the Prophets of Baal

Big Idea: The Lord is the one and only God, so we can put Him first in our life.

Memory Verse: “Do not put any other gods in place of me.” Exodus 20:3 (NIrV)

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

God deserves to be first in our lives. But we are all guilty of putting Him second – or even further down the list of what matters most to us. Consider what you put ahead of Him and then talk to Him about it. Admit it to Him and recommit yourself to making Him first in your life.
