9/3/2023 Rising Kindergartners begin attending Elementary Kids' Life
8/27/2023 Last Sunday for rising 7th graders to attend Elementary Kids' Life
Rising 6th graders will remain in Elementary Kid's Life and will not be moving up to Youth Life. However, our goal is to be able to provide unique spaces for our 5th and 6th graders. More details coming soon!
"What are you teaching my kid?"
We currently use Grow Curriculum on Sunday mornings. Find more details about what we are talking about this month HERE!
Q: What does rising 1st grade mean? I understand kindergarten and first grade, but then this ‘rising’ I don’t understand.
A: When you refer to a child as a rising 1st grader, it simply means the child will be in first grade during the next school year. So a rising 3rd grader, is actually in 2nd grade, but towards the end of the year, with the expectation of being in 3rd grade next school year.
We want to help you win at pointing your kids towards Jesus. With that in mind here are some ways to connect at home this month.
5-week series from the New Testament on the early church!
Every kid wishes they had superpowers, but with Jesus, we don’t need x-ray vision or invisibility to be heroes! In this four-week series, kids will hear stories about the heroes of the Early Church — the apostles and disciples who used their unique abilities to spread the good news of Jesus. Through their stories, we’ll see that anyone can do great things for God because God gives everyone a mission, the Holy Spirit gives us power, and we’re heroic when we work as a team!
Big Idea: Anyone can do great things for God!
Bible Story: John 14:1-14
Jesus told the disciples that they could do great things if they believe in Him. Can you do great things with Jesus too?
What is somethings great you can do for God right now?
Big Idea: No one is powerless when we have the Holy Spirit
Bible Story: Acts 1:1-11
What can the Holy Spirit give us power to do?
What are some things that you feel powerless to do on your own?
2 Timothy 1:7 "For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self discipline"
Below you'll find the highlights for each week and some questions to ask. Because sometimes you and your kid need a conversation starter that isn't, "So...how was Kids' Life?"
Big Idea: God gives everyone a mission
Bible Story: John 14:15-21
Jesus told his disciples that if they loved Him, they would follow his commands. What are some of the commands Jesus gives us?
How would you explain to someone the mission Jesus has given you?
Big Idea: We are heroic when we work as a team
Bible Story: Acts 2:1-12
We are heoric when we work as a team! What does it look like to work as a team?
What gift has the Holy Spirit given to you? Or what gift would you like to ask God to give you?
Whether it’s with LEGO bricks, Minecraft, or Roblox, kids (and adults!) love to make things — and sometimes break them. In this four-week series from the very beginning of the Bible, we’ll compare God’s ability to make good things with our tendency to break them. Through the stories of creation, the fall, Cain and Abel, and the Tower of Babel, we’ll see that God makes good things, unbreaks what’s been broken, and made us different on purpose, so we should honor God with the things we make.
What you're getting here are essentially our favorites. Resource partners & podcasts for topics all across the board which we as fellow parents and ministry leaders find helpful ourselves.
We want to remind you why what you do is so important. To help you focus on what matters most. To discover parenting along with you, so you know you’re not in this alone. Not all at once. Just little by little. So week by week, we will cue you so you can make the most of the weeks you have with your kids before graduation.
Helping people experience the Bible as a unified story that leads to Jesus. Our team at BibleProject wanted to create a resource that could serve families, small groups, and individuals during this unique time. We are delivering a weekly "Church at Home" guide every weekend right to your inbox. Sign-up below, or check back here each week to see updated guides!
Restoration Project is a movement of awake men. We are not a method, message, product or person. We are committed to catalyzing men everywhere to ENGAGE as intentional fathers and brothers. We help them dive deeply into their own stories, find healing in their souls, know God for who He truly is, and out of a place of strength and tenderness, restore the world.
