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:

    Over the coming weeks, we'll be discovering the purpose of the church and how kids get to live out this purpose. Today, we learned that as part of God's body we can serve others inside and outside of the four walls of the church building and show God's love to those who could use a smile or a kind word. 

  • Hanging Out:

    Being a member of God's body, THE CHURCH. means that you play an important role. In your house you may have roles too, setting the table, cleaning your room, or helping mom with laundry. If you don't play a part in your household, the work will not get done, or your parents may become weary. Working as a team allows everyone to share the load, and also allows everyone to enjoy the rewards of a clean home afterwards. It's the same in the church, if everyone shares the load and shares their gifts and time playing their part, the church runs smoothly and God's love can be shown to the world through His people. We are better together! What gifts has God given you, that you can share with your church family?

  • 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".

    Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:37-39

  • parent time:

    What you need to know:

    Just like your kids, you have a role to play too as parents. With children much more is "caught" than "taught"..remember that next time you are asked to volunteer for an event or to step into a ministry. Your kids are watching. Do you want them to see a life wrung out for God and others, or someone who only stayed on the sidelines unwilling to join in the action. Let's model for our kids what an active member of the church looks like, and even serve together as a family showing our children that serving God and others matters. 

    Some practical ideas of this are..

    volunteering at a soup kitchen or food pantry as a family

    picking up trash at your local playground together

    delivering baked goods to an elderly neighbor

    doing yard work for a widow or single mom

    Leading a Bible study in your living room

    inviting another family over your house for a meal

    The list could go on.. The most important thing you can do is invite your kiddos into seeing you serve, and let God move mightily in you and through you! Let us raise a generation of world changers who aren't afraid to roll up their sleeves for the kingdom!
