Hi parents!

 

Sometimes it’s hard enough to get kids to listen, but it’s a whole other challenge to get them to do what you say. Listen and do what is right—that’s the challenge this week’s family lesson tackles. Don’t be mistaken, though. It’s not just a challenge for kids—it’s for every one of us.

 

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. (You can access the YouTube playlist here.) It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family. And don’t forget to participate in the worship videos from Yancy afterwards—one song is for older kids and one is for younger kids.

 

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

 

Bible Story: Listen and Do What is Right (James 1:19-27)

Big Idea: God calls us to listen to His word and do what it tells us.

Memory Verse: “Don’t just listen to the word. You fool yourselves if you do that. You must do what it says.” James 1:22 (NIrV)

 

You can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson, be sure to check out the daily activities after the videos.

Finally, I want to leave you with this encouragement from Jeremiah 17:7-8: “But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” (NIV) Today, be rooted in the One who gives you Living Water.

 

In Him, Carol PLC

Hi parents!

 

This has been a time of trouble for a lot of us, but how many of us can say it’s also been a time of joy? Believe it or not, that’s what the Bible says it should be. During this week’s family worship experience, we’ll discover why the Book of James tells us we should be joyful in the middle of our troubles.

 

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family. And don’t forget to participate in the worship videos from Yancy afterwards—one song is for older kids and one is for younger kids.

 

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

 

Bible Story: Joy and Wisdom in Times of Trouble (James 1:2-5)

Big Idea: God calls us to seek Him for wisdom in times of trouble.

Memory Verse: “If any of you needs wisdom, you should ask God for it. He will give it to you. God gives freely to everyone and doesn’t find fault.” James 1:5 (NIrV)

 

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:

In all honesty, this is a hard lesson to master. As simple as the concept is, it can be very challenging to find joy in times of trouble. But that’s what I’ll be praying for you!

Hi parents!

 

In the Book of John, Jesus says, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) But what exactly does He mean by that? The answer is of eternal importance and it’s what we’ll be exploring during this week’s family worship.

 

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family. And don’t forget to participate in the worship videos from Yancy afterwards—one song is for older kids and one is for younger kids.

 

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

 

Bible Story: Jesus is the Way, Truth, and Life (John 14:5-14)

Big Idea: Jesus is the one true God and following Him is the only way to eternal life.

Memory Verse: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6 (NIrV)

 

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:

And lastly—a word of encouragement from the Bible. I love what God says in Psalm 30:5, “Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.” It’s been a dark season for almost all of us, but I’m praying that the joy of “morning” is on the horizon for you and your family.

Hi parents!

 

For the second week, we’ll be answering the all-important question of “Who is Jesus?” You’ve probably heard before that Jesus is the “Good Shepherd,” but what exactly does that mean for us? That’s what we’ll be talking about this week during our family lesson.

 

As usual, when it’s time to begin, start your morning of worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family. And don’t forget to participate in the worship videos from Yancy afterwards—one song is for older kids and one is for younger kids.

 

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

 

Bible Story: Jesus is the Good Shepherd (John 10:1-18)

Big Idea: Jesus is the good shepherd, so we should listen to His voice and follow Him.

Memory Verse: “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me.” John 10:14 (NIrV)

 

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:

And finally, I’d like to leave you with a blessing that many of us could use right now. It comes from the Book of Numbers 6:24-26, “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.” May you and your family rest in the peace of Jesus this week!

Hi parents!

 

“Who is Jesus?” It’s so important that our kids know the answer to that question beyond a surface level. For that reason, we’ll be answering that question over the next 4 weeks during our family lessons. In the Book of John, Jesus uses 7 different “I am” statements that give us a look at who He really is. This week, we’ll be looking at one of those statements—“I am the true vine.”

 

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. It’s designed to be both fun and interactive. The video will prompt you to answer a question with your family. It’s a great way to engage spiritually with one another. Afterwards, there are two great worship videos from Yancy to choose from: one is for older kids and one is for younger kids.

 

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

 

Bible Story: Jesus is the True Vine (John 15:1-17)

Big Idea: Jesus is the vine, so we can grow by staying connected to Him.

Memory Verse: “I am the vine. You are the branches. If you remain joined to me, and I to you, you will bear a lot of fruit.” John 15:5 (NIrV)

 

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:

I’m praying for you and your family! And I’m hopeful that this lesson helps your family (in the words of 2 Peter 3:18) “Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

Hi parents!

 

A lot of kids (and grown-ups) think of the Bible as a collection of individual stories, but it’s more than that. The Bible is actually one big story about God’s love and redemption of people. And even though the Bible is finished, God’s story continues in the lives of the believers. This week, we’re going to be learning the BIG Bible story from beginning to end.

 

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. It’s designed to be both fun and interactive. The video will prompt you to answer a question with your family. It’s a great way to engage spiritually with one another. Afterwards, there are two great worship videos from Yancy to choose from: one is for older kids and one is for younger kids.

 

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

 

Bible Story: God’s Story in Our Lives

Big Idea: God’s story of love and redemption continues today in the lives of His children.

Memory Verse: “Some people did accept him and did believe in his name. He gave them the right to become children of God.” John 1:12 (NIrV)

 

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:

Lastly, I’m praying that God continues to give you strength in this challenging and sometimes frightening time. To that end, I’ll leave you with the Apostle Paul’s blessing from Ephesians 3:16: “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being.”

Hi parents!

 

People love a good story! And if you’re a follower of Jesus, then YOU have a good story to tell. During this week’s family lesson, we’re going to hear about Paul’s arrest for preaching the good news. But not even jail could stop Paul from telling his story. There’s a lot we can learn from Paul!

Hi parents!

Hi parents!

It’s hard to believe, but Easter is almost here. With that in mind, this Sunday we’re learning about the saddest day of the Holy Week—the day Jesus died on the cross. As sad as it is, though, it’s such an important part of the Gospel story. There is no, “He is risen,” without their first being “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?”

When you’re ready, watch the lesson video with your kids. It’s fun for the whole family and there is an opportunity to pause and discuss.  Afterwards, there are two great worship videos from Yancy to choose from: one is for older kids and one is for younger kids.

 

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

Bible Story: Death on the Cross (Luke 23:32-46)

Big Idea: God’s grace is big enough, so we can go to Him no matter who we are or what we’ve done.

Memory Verse: “God’s grace has now appeared. By his grace, God offers to save all people.”  Titus 2:11 (NIrV)

Services might be cancelled, but church is NOT! This is proof that the body of Christ cannot and should not be contained by 4 walls.

With that in mind, we’re so excited to share this video resource with you and your children. Watch it together as a family and answer the discussion questions when prompted. The video is in the style of a fun morning talk show for kids. Both you and your kids will LOVE it! And best of all, it’s designed to help your children learn and grow in their walk with Jesus.

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

Bible Story: Jesus Washes the Disciples’ Feet (John 13:1-17)

Big Idea: Jesus served others and wants us to do the same.

Memory Verse: “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last. They must be the servant of everyone.” Mark 9:35 (NIrV)

 

Finally, I want to leave you with a blessing based on Philippians 4:7. I think it’s fitting for these challenging times. May the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, guard the hearts and minds of you and your family in Christ Jesus. Amen. – Carol Patterson-Leclerc
