Relay (3 years-Kindergarten)

 

In Relay, your child will begin to explore the stories and themes of the Bible! Our volunteers actively engage children in worship, prayer, and scripture memorization and use crafts, games, and object lessons to reinforce each week's Bible lesson.

Below, you can find summaries of our weekly lessons and themes along with activities you can do with your child during the week. We look forward to seeing you!

We finished off our series on wisdom by talking about how God blessed Solomon when Solomon listened to Him. Solomon was given the opportunity to ask God for anything, and instead of money, power, or long life, he asked God for wisdom. God honored Solomon's choice and not only gave him wisdom, but all the other good things he could have asked for! God gave Solomon a straight path when Solomon obeyed Him!

Monthly Memory Verse: If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5

Do it at Home! Finish strong with your wisdom devotionals! Play a game with your parents where they give you two choices and you have to pick the wise choice, then switch places and have your parents try to make the wise choice!

Pray with us! God, thank you for showing us the straight path. Give us ears to hear your voice and a heart that desires to love and follow you above all us. Show us the right decision and give us the boldness and confidence to make the right choice! We love you! In Jesus' name, Amen.

Today we opened our Bibles to 2 Chronicles 10, where King Rehoboam takes over for his father, King Solomon, as King of Israel. Before he died, King Solomon had given the Israelites heavy taxes, and it was making them very upset! The Israelites wanted to see if King Rehoboam would help them by lowering the taxes. Being a young king, Rehoboam asked his elders and his friends what he should do. The elders told him to listen to the people, but his friends told him to make the taxes even bigger! Rehoboam listened to his friends and the kingdom of Israel was split because of his decision. When we listen to foolish people, we make foolish decisions! When we need to make a choice, we should always look to God, His Word, and people who we know follow Him, like our parents and pastors!

Monthly Memory Verse: If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5

Do it at Home! Have you been participating in our challenge to read the whole book of Proverbs this month? Read one chapter today and ask your parents how they use one of the verses in their daily life!

Pray with us! God, we thank you for giving us wisdom whenever we ask for it. Help us to make wise choices and to pick friends who will encourage us to live for you. We want to please you in everything we do. We love you! In Jesus' name, Amen.

Today we opened our Bibles to Proverbs 22:3, which says: "The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty." When we use wisdom, we can see danger coming! But if we refuse to listen to God, we will find trouble. We also talked about King Solomon, who asked God for wisdom and became very wise! However, Solomon made some mistakes and didn't act on the wisdom God gave him. Solomon left his kingdom in a very bad place because he started worshiping other Gods! If we want to be wise, we have to look to God first and never let anyone or anything come between us and Him.

Monthly Memory Verse: If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5

Do it at Home! It's week two of our Bible Challenge for this month! Pick your favorite verse from this week's reading and write it on a whiteboard, mirror, or a sticky note. Read it every day before you do anything else and ask God to help you listen and obey Him!

Pray with us! God, we thank you for giving us wisdom whenever we ask for it. Help us to finish strong and not just love you sometimes. Help us to love you with our whole hearts and not let anyone cause us to turn away from you. Help us to walk in wisdom every day of our life. We love you! In Jesus' name, Amen.

This week we talked about boy Jesus! Sometimes it's hard to believe that Jesus was ever a little boy, but he had to grow up and learn about God just like you do! In Luke 2:41-52 we learn that Jesus was not only learning in the temple, but teaching in the temple--at only 12 years old! Still, Jesus loved to spend time in God's house and He grew in wisdom and favor with God and people because of it. Just like Jesus, we should desire to grow in our relationship with God, as we do, we will become wise!

Monthly Memory Verse: If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5

Do it at Home! This month we want to challenge you to read the whole book of Proverbs! There are 31 days in the month of August and 31 chapters in Proverbs. That means you only have to read one chapter a day! As you read, ask God to help you understand how you can use wisdom every day!

Pray with us! God, we thank you for giving us wisdom whenever we ask for it. Thank you for teaching us to be wise and protecting us from danger. We love you! In Jesus' name, Amen.
