We are concluding our unit on our importance to God this week as we begin Advent Sundays. During the Sundays of Advent, we will finish our unit on our importance to God and use some of the lessons from the Family Advent Kit to tie into what is going to be taught in the main service.

The question for this unit is, “What makes people special? People are special because we are made in God’s image, as male and female, to know Him. Our memory verse for this unit is Psalm 139:13, 14, ”For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Try memorizing the verse as a family. (Preschoolers will memorize the bolded portion.)

What is something that is special about you or your children? Do you believe that God created you for a purpose? This week, we are in Psalm 139 as we learn that God created each of us uniquely and with a purpose. Every person matters. God created us and cares for us. He sent His Son, Jesus, to save us from our sins. As we love and follow God, He calls us to love others and show respect to everyone.

Here are a few questions about our lesson this week to start conversation as a family:

  • How does it make you feel to know God knows everything about you?
  • How does it feel to know that God made you just the way He wanted you to be?
  • How does this change the way you look at yourself and others?
  • How does showing love to others help them know God?
