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.
