Hey Grace Families!

Today we are going to finish our series called “Who’s The Church?

Things are about to get fishy at Konnect HQ. What does that have to do with anything? Let’s tune it to find out!

Konnect HQ:

Worship Songs:

Wherever I Go:

Activity:

To Do

Say: When we believe in and follow Jesus, we become part of God’s Church! Part of being the Church is teaching others how to follow Jesus. In the Bible, Jesus calls it “fishing for people.” Let’s play a game about that!

Let’s go fishing! Search our house for anything relating to fish! A toy, a book, food, anything! Come back with a list of things you found after 5 minutes. Let’s see if you can find anything fishy…

Review Questions:
1) What does it mean to fish for people? Tell others about Jesus and show them how to follow Him.
2) What is the Church? All the people who follow Jesus
3) How do you think people can tell that you follow Jesus? Answers will vary.
4) In the Bible story, Jesus taught His first disciples to fish for people. How can you learn to fish for people today? Ask others to help you, read what Jesus did in the Bible, pray, learn at church, etc.
5) What do you think happens when you tell people about Jesus, but you don’t live God’s way? Answers will vary.
6) What might keep you from trying to fish for people? Answers will vary.
7) What’s your favorite part of following Jesus? Answers will vary.
8) Who might like to follow Jesus if you shared your favorite part of following Jesus with them? Answers will vary.

Hi Grace Families!

This week, we have a special lesson made just for you, our younger kids of Grace! Let’s see what Emily, Guy, and Mr. Music have been up to!

Let’s watch today’s lesson video!

Activity

Say: When there’s a problem, give God what you have. He can take what you give Him to take care of the problem.

You’ll need: A snack that comes in small pieces (cereal, grapes, crackers, etc.)
Read The Big Picnic together on the Bible App for Kids, or read John 6:1-12 in the Bible.
Give your child one small piece of food. (for example, one grape)

Talk about the following questions:
1) Will this little snack fill up our hungry tummies?
2) What did the boy do with his little lunch when everyone was hungry?
3) What happened when the boy gave his little lunch to Jesus?
4) Ask your child to give their little snack back, and give them a big snack in return. (For example, a handful of grapes)

Practice answering today’s question and saying the Bible verse together.

Finally, pray together about a problem you have. For example,

Dear God, please help the virus go away. Amen.

Hey Grace Families!

God’s peace makes us feel so much better inside— but He wants us to pass it on to others, too! Let’s watch this week’s lesson to see how we can pass God’s peace to others.

Konnect HQ:

Worship:

Peace Like A River:

For Who You Are:

Peace in Christ:

Activity:
Activity Supplement: CLICK HERE

Activity Sheet: CLICK HERE

> Put the 10 labels on cups. 11 cups won’t have a label.
> Say: Let’s play a fun game! We’ll stack the cups in the order of the Bible verse to build towers. Once we do it the easy way—we can try it a harder way!
> Say the Bible verse together:
Romans 14:19 So let us do all we can to live in peace. And let us work hard to build up one another.
> Use the “Tower Difficulty Level: Easy” diagram to help kids stack the cups in order of the Bible verse.
> If the tower topples over, try again.
> Say: We mastered that challenge, but it took hard work to build the towers! It reminds me of being a peacemaker— it’s not always easy to build people up, stand up for what’s right, and share peace, but God will help us.
> Challenge kids to master the “Tower Difficulty Level: Hard” or “Tower Difficulty Level: Mega Hard” diagram.

Review Questions:
1) What will God do for us when we are tempted? Make a way out so we can say, “No!” to sin
2) What do you think is good about sharing Jesus’ peace? Ideas: It shows we are God’s children, it helps heal broken hearts, etc.
3) How would you describe a person who is a peacemaker? Answers will vary.
4) When do you think it’s easy to be a peacemaker? When it’s fun—like playing with a kid who’s lonely, feeding a cute baby, giving a gift, etc.
5) When do you think it’s hard to be a peacemaker? Ideas: When it’s not fun—like obeying when you don’t want to. When you’re worried other people won’t still like you—like if you follow the rules and no one else is or you stand up for a kid other people make fun of, etc.
6) Name someone who is a good peacemaker and one thing they do that makes them a good peacemaker.
7) What can you learn from that person so you can be a better peacemaker?

Pray Together:
Ask kids to share things they’d like to pray about
Think of some people who are fighting right now. Say a prayer for them.

Pray together over the prayer requests.
Not sure what to pray? Pray this: God, please help us share Your peace with others and stand up for what’s right, even when it’s tough to do. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Have an awesome week Grace kids!

> Print out the activity supplement, and put a pen in the middle of the circle as a ‘spinner.’
> Say: When we choose to follow Jesus and unhappy things come up, we don’t have to lose it. We have God’s peace— we can calm down inside because we can trust Him. Now let’s see what it’s like to lose it—and what it’s like to choose God’s peace, instead!
> Spin the spinner. Everyone in the family does the activity that matches the color the spinner landed on. Note: See activity supplement to know what each color stands for.
> Repeat several times.
> Say: Every time we “lost it,” it was kind of crazy. But when we choose Jesus’ peace, it helps us calm down inside, get our thoughts together, and try again.
> Kids can come up with additional ways to “lose it” if they’d like.

Review Questions:

1) What gift does Jesus leave us with? Peace for your mind and your heart
2) What do you think peace feels like?
3) Who gets Jesus’ gift of peace? Everyone who chooses to trust in and follow Jesus
4) What good things do you think Jesus’ gift of peace does? Ideas: heal broken things like your heart and your friendship with God, help your mind and heart be strong and healthy, etc.
5) What are some things that might keep you from feeling Jesus’ gift of peace? Ideas: being too busy, jealousy, worrying, not forgiving others, hard times, getting made fun of, etc.
6) Talk about a time you felt really peaceful.
7) When you choose to follow Jesus, His peace is always with you. If you don’t feel it, what can you do about it? Ideas: Pray, read the Bible, talk to a trusted friend, listen to music about God, etc.

Pray Together:

Ask kids to share things they’d like to pray about
Pray together over the prayer requests.
Not sure what to pray? Pray this: God, please help us get to know Jesus and the gift of peace He gives to us. In Jesus’ name, amen.
