Children's Ministry at Home

Parent Preparation

Hey Parent!

Thanks for taking the time to invest in your child's spiritual life during this season of social distancing due to

COVID-19. 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 as we navigate this season together.  If you have any questions or need anything at all, feel free to contact our children's director, Crystal Rankin, at crystal.rankin@providencecitychurch.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:  Luke 17

Story Point:  Jesus healed ten men, and one was saved.

Big Picture Question:  When you hear about the people in our Bible story today, I want you to think about this big picture question: Why did God create people?  Do you have any ideas? [Allow kids to respond.] The answer to our big picture question is, God created people to worship Him, love Him, and show His glory.

Christ Connection:   

Parent •  Jesus healed the ten men who cried out to Him. The one who had faith was saved. When we trust in Jesus by faith, He heals us from something greater than a disease; He saves us from our sins. We can give Him thanks and worship Him for making us new.

Key Passage:  Isaiah 53:4-5

Parent •  Lead the boys and girls to read together Isaiah 53:4-5.

 

Long before Jesus was born, the prophet Isaiah wrote about a Servant who would come from God. Isaiah said this Servant would bear our sicknesses and carry our pains. Jesus fulfilled this prophecy when He healed many people. [See Matt. 8:16-17.]  In today’s Bible story, Jesus healed ten men, and one was saved. When we trust in Jesus by faith, He heals us from something greater than a disease; He saves us from our sins. We can give Him thanks and worship Him for making us new.

Missions Moment:  A long time ago, a missionary named Amy Carmichael felt God calling her to minister to people who were very poor. She lived among them and taught them the Bible. Amy wanted the people around her to have their bodies healed, but also be healed of their sin by trusting in Jesus as Savior. Let’s watch a video about Amy and learn more.
