Children's Ministry at Home
Thanks for taking the time to invest in your child's spiritual life. Below, you will find all of the materials you need to lead your children at home. These resources come from The Gospel Project for Kids which is the curriculum that the kids normally do on Sunday mornings.
We pray you find these resources helpful and know that we are praying for all of you. If you have any questions or need anything at all, feel free to contact our children's director, Crystal Norman, at firstname.lastname@example.org
1. Pray Together
A - Adoration: Give God praise and honor for who he is as Lord over all.
C - Confession: Be honest with God about decisions you've made or things you've done that do not honor Him.
T - Thanksgiving: Speak out loud and specifically what you're grateful for in your life and in the world around us. No matter what our circumstances, there is always something to be thankful for.
S - Supplication: Ask God for His help to meet needs, solve problems, heal the sick, save people.

Bible Passage: Leviticus 1-4
Big Picture Question:
SAY We have been thinking about the big picture question, What is worship? Does anyone remember the answer? [Allow kids to respond.] Worship is celebrating the greatness of God.
Let’s say the big picture question and answer together: What is worship? Worship is celebrating the greatness of God. God is worthy of all worship because of who He is and what He has done.
SAY God deserves our worship. He created us to be in a relationship with Him, and He has provided salvation from sin through His Son, Jesus. We can worship God by loving and obeying Him as we live to give Him glory.
(Tip: Use Scripture and the guide provided to explain how to become a Christian. Make sure kids know when and where they can ask questions.)
Key Passage: Psalm 95: 6-7
Lead kids in reading aloud Psalm 95:6-7 together.
SAY God desires to have a relationship with us. Let’s continue memorizing Psalm 95:6-7 that reminds us that we are His and He cares for us.
Go outside. Challenge kids to use sidewalk chalk to write out the key passage from memory. Suggest they decorate the area to encourage anyone who walks by. If no outdoor space is available, use a large sheet of paper and markers. Encourage kids to be creative and draw pictures that remind them of the message of Psalm 95:6-7.
SAY Today, we learned that only God deserves worship. Even when we face difficult or scary circumstances, we are to worship God. In New Orleans, where Bobby and LeKeisha Williams are church planters, hurricanes are a regular part of life. Since 1851, the state of Louisiana has been hit by at least 49 hurricanes! In 2020, Hurricane Laura struck Louisiana. Missionaries and volunteers served around 400,000 meals to people who had been affected by the hurricane.
Attach a large sheet of paper to the wall. Lead the kids in brainstorming things that people who have been through a disaster like a hurricane might need. Help them think through needs that may arise when there is no electricity or clean water. List their ideas on the paper.
SAY Missionaries and volunteers respond to disasters. We can help too by praying and giving. Maybe one day some of you will volunteer to help and show Jesus’ love to people who have been through a disaster.
Ask a volunteer to pray for people who have faced or will face disasters this year. Pray also for any missionaries your church supports.
