make it stick!

Find out about what we learned in

Kids Ministry last Sunday. 

Help make stories, and concepts "stick"

by having your kids participate

in the following discussions at home

  • in the car:

    Our Palm Sunday lesson was on Jesus' Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem. We talked about how excited the crowd was to see Jesus as they shouted "Hosanna!" in praise and worship to Jesus for saving them, while waving palm branches declaring Jesus as King.

  • Hanging Out:

    Ever been part of a victory parade to celebrate a winning team? The crowd gets loud and energized as excitement fills the air. Jerusalem was quite abuzz with one such jubilant crowd as Jesus made His Triumphal Entry. People spread out their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches on the path in worship of Jesus, shouting "Hosanna" (translated as "Save!") to the one who saves us from our sin. Do you get excited at the opportunity to praise Jesus for saving you from sin? More excited than getting a new toy or supporting a winning team? God is honored when we praise and worship him in singing and continue on to worship him as we go about our everyday life.

  • at bedtime:

    Have your child find our memory verse in their Bible before bed. Repeat this verse together or make up a silly song with hand motions to "make it stick".

    "Christ died for our sins just as the scriptures said. He was buried, he was raised from the dead on the third day just as the scriptures said." 

    1 Cor 15:3-4

  • parent time:

    What you need to know:

    There is a great backstory to Jesus' Triumphal Entry. It happened 500 years before, when Zechariah prophesied "See your king comes to you righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a colt" Zech 9:9. Palm Sunday was a fulfillment of prophecy as Jesus asserted his kingship authority as the Prince of Peace. We can ascribe greatness to our God in our praise and worship. We can bring honor to His name by continuously worshipping Jesus in everyday life (beyond our singing on Sunday) - even while putting out the trash, making our bed, while out running errands - we can worship God by doing every day life activities with a great attitude and to the best of our abilities, knowing "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord" Col 3:23. How can I bring honor to God today? How can my worship to God be evident in what I do today?
