The Big God Story
This is a journey our church family will take together to understand God's relationship with humanity and the invitation to be part of God's big story.
Hope you had a great summer.
We're in a series called, "Finding Our Way on Route 316" using the great 3:16's of the Bible to tell story.
Week of Oct 7/18
Connect as a family
One evening this week, at dinner, play a game of “Pass the Pepper.” Pass the pepper shaker around the table, and when each person takes it, she must share the best thing that happened in the past week. Celebrate these things together. Then, after taking time to remember and celebrate the great events of the week, talk with your children about the festivals God’s people celebrated, particularly the Day of Atonement, and how they spent time remembering His righteousness. One way the Israelites did this was by repenting of and confessing their sins. Read 1 John 1:5–10. Discuss as a family the forgiving love of Jesus and the importance of confession and repentance.
After reading the Scripture passage, discuss these questions together:
• What does “God is light” mean?
• What happens when we confess our sins?
• What is one thing you would like to confess to Jesus and ask Him to forgive?
Blessings are often used in the Bible. A blessing can be a prayer of commission, a portion of Scripture, or words to encourage and guide.
A blessing to pray over your child:
(Child’s name), may you grow to be more and more like Jesus. May the Holy Spirit enable you to live righteously. May you celebrate Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross as the sacrifice for your sin.
