Hi Journey Kids parents!
“Who is Jesus?” It’s so important that our kids know the answer to that question beyond a surface level. For that reason, we’ll be answering that question over the next 4 weeks during our family lessons. In the Book of John, Jesus uses 7 different “I am” statements that give us a look at who He really is. This week, we’ll be looking at one of those statements—“I am the true vine.”
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. Afterward, 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: Jesus is the True Vine (John 15:1-17)
Big Idea: Jesus is the vine, so we can grow by staying connected to Him.
Memory Verse: “I am the vine. You are the branches. If you remain joined to me, and I to you, you will bear a lot of fruit.” John 15:5 (NIrV)
After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:
I’m praying for you and your family! And I’m hopeful that this lesson helps your family (in the words of 2 Peter 3:18) “Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
