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 Rankin, 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: Genesis 14; Hebrews 5; 7
Big Picture Question:
SAY Last time, we heard our new big picture question. Do you remember what it is? Who is in control of everything? God is in control of everything in heaven [point up] and on earth [point down]. Nothing [shake hands side to side] is outside of God’s good [give a thumbs-up] plan.
Say that with me. You can do the motions, too: Who is in control of everything? God is in control of everything in heaven and on earth. Nothing is outside of God’s good plan.
Parent • Melchizedek means ‘king of righteousness.’ Melchizedek reminds us of Jesus, an even greater priest and king who lives forever. Jesus died on the cross and rose again to bless all who trust in Him by providing forgiveness and eternal life.
(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 135: 5-6
Parent • Write the first letter of each word in the key passage on a chalkboard or dry erase board, drawing a short blank after each letter. Show the key passage poster and invite kids to read the key passage aloud once or twice. Then remove the key passage poster. Challenge kids to take turns saying the key passage from memory, using the first letters as prompts.
SAY God blessed Abraham, and Abraham trusted God. He believed that God is in control. The words of these verses can help us remember what is true about God. We can trust Him. Who is in control of everything? God is in control of everything in heaven and on earth. Nothing is outside of God’s good plan.
Missions Moment: Show the Caldwell family photo and introduce each family member by reading the descriptions. You may choose to ask a different volunteer to read each description.
SAY The Caldwells are just one family whom God used on mission. All followers of Jesus can point others to Him. Let’s thank God for families on mission and missionary families who are serving Him around the world.
Ask a volunteer to pray for the Caldwell family’s ministry and for any missionaries your church supports.
