Elementary, September 5: God Provides a Sacrifice – Isaac

Hi Journey Kids parents!

God asked a lot of hard things of Abraham. First, He asked Abraham to leave everything he knew and follow Him. Then God asked him to sacrifice Isaac – Abraham’s only son. Now, God never intended Abraham to sacrifice his son. But God was testing Abraham’s trust. Abraham passed with flying colors – and God provided a substitute for Isaac.

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:
