Your Grace Kids resources for the week of August 24
Read 1 Samuel 18-20
Watch: God’s People – David and Jonathan
Practice Psalm 19:1-4B, 7-14
We are finished memorizing Psalm 19! Spend extra time this week reading through the Psalm, reciting it together as a family and praying through the verses.
FAMILIES – we would LOVE to see your children/family reciting Psalm 19. Send us your videos / photos of your kids/you reciting psalm 19 to email@example.com.
Focus on the “Study It” section and “Discuss It” sections in the Lesson. The book of Acts describes how the first church multiplied. These first churches were small and met in homes, not church buildings.
Read these examples: Acts: 2:42-47, Acts 4:4, and Acts 11:21
How do multiplying churches reach more people?
Watch: Bible Story // David & Jonathan became friends
Read John 15:12-15
Discuss: Friendship with Jesus
Jesus calls us his friend and He wants to be in relationship with us. Throughout the Gospels we see the friendship of Jesus and his disciples develop. Although their intent was to serve and follow Jesus as Master, He calls them friends and even hints at His coming death to show just how deep His love for them will go. Jesus’ love and sacrifice for those He walked with is the ultimate example of relationship. Though we may not physically lay down our lives for our friends, we can sacrifice for others just as He sacrificed for us.
LESSON 13: HOW WILL THEY GROW? (continued)
Read Acts: 2:42-47, Acts 4:4, and Acts 11:21
Discuss how your family can “Experience It”. Cut open an apple and count the seeds. If each seed were planted, how many new apple trees would there be? Each new tree you plant could produce about 6,750 apples a year, for 100 years. Now that’s multiplication.
Finish up with the “Map It” section.
Celebrate that God makes it possible for us to be called “friends.” As you make this friendship bracelet, your kids will also learn about how each piece of yarn represents a person — each equal and worthy of love in God’s eyes.
