This week in Early Life, we continue talking about Moses and the big and little stuff in our lives.  This lesson applies to adults, too!  “Whoever can be trusted with very little can be trusted with much.” Luke 16:10. Click on the Early Life Link to learn more.

In Elementary, we conclude our 3-week study of some of the miracles that Jesus did. Our miracle this week is the miracle of Jesus walking on the water.  Does this remind you of a hero’s superpower? If you were a superhero, what would your special skill be? Jesus did not walk on water to draw attention to himself or to be a superhero. Jesus was no ordinary man; this was the Son of God—the promised Messiah! As we talk to our children, encourage them to look to Jesus in faith every day. We can seek Him for our salvation and for help as we live in this world.  Follow the Elementary Link to learn more.

This week in Early Life, we are learning about an important person in the Bible…Moses!  God did incredible things all through his life.  You can help your kids learn why it’s important to be faithful with the “small stuff” in order to be trusted with the “Big Stuff!”  Click on the Early Life Link to learn more.

In Elementary, we continue our 3-week study of some of the miracles that Jesus did. Our miracle this week is the only miracle during Jesus’ earthly ministry that is recorded in all four Gospels. This is the miracle of Jesus feeding 5,000 men plus women and children from five loaves of bread and two fish.  One thing that I appreciate about this miracle is that Jesus had compassion on the crowd even when he and the disciples were tired and trying to get away for a “day off”.  (How many of us can appreciate the need for a day off from this COVID season?) Instead, Jesus follows his Father’s plan and meets the needs of the crowd so that he can tell them more about how to have a relationship with God that meets all their needs.  Follow the Elementary Link to learn more.

This week in Early Life, we will help our kids see that we can look to Jesus to be the best example, through the story of Joseph.  Click on the link to see how you can help your kids “mirror” Jesus!

In Elementary, we are beginning a 3-week study of some of the miracles that Jesus did. Our miracle this week is from John 2 and we will look at how Jesus’ first miracle was to turn water into wine.  Isn’t it great that Jesus did miracles according to his Father’s plan —not to simply solve the problem at hand, but to solve the deepest problem we face, the problem of sin. We can rejoice that Jesus always obeyed His Father’s plan, all the way to the cross.

This week in Early Life we will continue to talk about Joseph and how God used his for His good.  You can also check out our Spotify preschool playlist!

In Elementary, we conclude our study of some of the parables that Jesus told. Our parable this week is called the Parable of the Wicked Tenants. This parable is about tenants who treated the landowner’s servants and son horribly when they came to collect payment.  It is a parable about Israel’s history and how God would respond to their rejection of Jesus. This week, we will look at how God will judge those who reject Jesus.

In Elementary, we continue our study of some of the parables that Jesus told. Our parable this week is about the Pharisee and the tax collector praying in the temple in Luke 18:9-14. We will be talking a lot about pride. Is pride always bad? What does it mean to be humble?
