We are concluding our study about the time of the Judges in Children’s Ministry this week. We are learning that the fair punishment for sin is death. But as our memory verse for this unit, Romans 6:23, reminds us, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Do you have something that you think brings you luck? This week, we see what happened when the Ark of the Covenant was taken from the people of Israel. (1 Samuel 4-6) The Ark reminded the Israelites that God was with them. Rather than treat the Ark with reverence, the Israelites treated the Ark as a sort of good luck charm.

Use the Family Devotional to learn more as a family this week. Many years after our lesson, God gave His people something even better to remind them that He was with them. God sent His Son, Jesus. One of Jesus’ names is Immanuel, which means “God with us”. Jesus is better than the ark because He is always with us. 

The Family Devotional includes opportunities for families to read and memorize God’s Word, share a worship experience, do activities and more!

Registration for our Family Experience with MrJ, August 1-4, 2022 from 5:00-8:30 PM, is now open! Registration and information is available ONLINE.
