WCKIDS WEEKLY

WC KIDS WEEKLY | 2023 – Week 4

January 22, 2023

We are concluding our unit on where God is this week. The question for this unit is, “Where is God? God is in all places at all times and is always with His people.” Our memory verse for this unit is Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV), ”The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing” Try memorizing the verse as a family. (Preschoolers will memorize the bolded portion.)

Have you ever heard the expression “The writing on the wall”? This week, we are in Daniel 5 as God writes his message on the wall! Daniel gets an opportunity to interpret the message due to his faithfulness to live as God wanted him to as an exile in Babylon. We will see that God humbled the proud king of Babylon by taking away his kingdom. In contrast, Jesus willingly humbled Himself by dying on the cross for our sin. God raised up Jesus and gave Him honor forever. When we humble ourselves and trust in Jesus, God will raise us up to enjoy Jesus in His kingdom forever.

WC KIDS WEEKLY | 2023 – Week 3

January 15, 2023

We are continuing our unit on where God is this week. The question for this unit is, “Where is God? God is in all places at all times and is always with His people.” Our memory verse for this unit is Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV), ”The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing” Try memorizing the verse as a family. (Preschoolers will memorize the bolded portion.)

Have you ever felt like you had to choose between the right thing and the popular thing? This week, we are looking at the life of one of the exiles in Babylon as we study Daniel. We will be in Daniel 1 as we see that Daniel, and a few of his fellow exiles from Judah, were faithful to live as they felt God was leading them to live, despite the cost to their lives. We will see that, in a greater way, Jesus was always faithful to God. He came to earth to rescue sinners. When we trust in Jesus, God forgives us and helps us follow Him.

WC KIDS WEEKLY | 2023 – Week 2

January 8, 2023

We are beginning a new unit on where God is this week. The question for this unit is, “Where is God? God is in all places at all times and is always with His people.” Our memory verse for this unit is Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV), ”The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing” Try memorizing the verse as a family. (Preschoolers will memorize the bolded portion.)

Do you ever wonder where God is? Why is he not doing something? This week, we are looking at Jeremiah’s encouragement to the Israelites from Judah in exile in Babylon. (This would have included Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego from the book of Daniel! More about them next week.) We will be looking at the letter God told Jeremiah to write in Jeremiah 29 and 30. We will see that God did not abandon His people. He was still with them. The prophet Jeremiah encouraged God’s people. He said God was going to save His people from captivity and raise up a new King—a forever King—from David’s family.

Some questions and answers from our kiddos last Sunday when asked “where is God?” ❔tomorrow, our main point as we talk about Daniel is: Daniel was faithful to God, and God blessed him… In an even greater way, Jesus was always faithful to God. He came to earth and followed God’s plan to save sinners. Those who trust in Jesus receive God’s forgiveness and blessing. Learn more at Westminster.org/kids ⭐️ #wcbellevueparents ...

MORE ABOUT WESTMINSTER KIDS

We believe that the more you know Jesus, the more you know what really matters! Our key verse for ministry is: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.  By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34-35)

Martha Clay

Children’s Ministry Director

I love introducing children to the Gospel Story of the Bible and helping them become lifelong disciples of Jesus. I love the humor, the hugs, and the honesty of children.  I grew up at Westminster and found it a great place to learn and develop my faith and gifts.  My hope is that children will feel that Westminster is their church where they can learn to love like Jesus and develop their gifts.

My husband Dan and I have 3 children who are all adults now.  In my free time, I enjoy reading, history, Paris tea, puzzles, and walks with my husband Dan.
