We will be heading to the race track for the next eight weeks in Bright Beginnings! We’ll be racing to make Jesus #1 in our lives and together we’ll discover that Jesus wants to be the “driving force” of our character. We’ll learn about the character qualities of faith, self-control, obedience, trust and more while we hear stories about Jesus and His ministry.
Here’s what we talked about this week:
Word of the Week: Faithful
Bible Verse: Jesus has first place. Colossians 1:18
Story: Jesus Calls the Disciples (Matthew 4:18-22)
Prayer: Lord, Thank You that You are always with me in this great race of life. You are the best and can always help me. I love You so much. Help me to always make You #1 in my life. Amen
Parents: In what way do you need to show God He’s first in your life this week? Pray about it and ask Him if you are putting anything before Him.
Birth – Age 2: Create a race track on the floor for small cars with masking tape or blocks then pretend to race your child, taking turns winning. Remind them that whether we come in first, second or last, Jesus loves us just the same!
Age 3 – Kindergarten: Take a day this week to wash the family car together! Talk about who drives the car. Then talk about how Jesus can be the driver of our lives.
