HOME DISCIPLESHIP...

MONTH OF September, 2022

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.

SERIES: Animated

MONTHLY OVERVIEW: A series from the old testament on the prophets.


If you’ve ever gotten a little emotional during your favorite cartoon movies or shows, you know animation is a powerful tool to not only tell big stories, but to make us feel big feelings, too! In this four-week series, we’ll look at some stories of the Old Testament prophets as we explore some of those feelings. These stories will remind kids that God cares about our big feelings. With God, we can all feel secure, comforted, valued, and loved, even when our emotions tell us otherwise.

SEPTEMBER 4

Big Idea: Because of God, I can feel secure

Bible Story: Jeremiah at the potters house

Bible Passage: Jeremiah 18:1-11

Question to Ask:

  • PREK: Just like how the potter has the clay in their hands and they are molding and shaping it, God has us in his hands! What emotion does that make you feel?

  • ELEM: How might today's bible story about the life of Jeremiah change the way you look at sad situations in your life?

SEPTEMBER 11

Big Idea: God loves me even when I feel ashamed

Bible Story: Jonah swallowed by a fish

Bible Passage: Jonah 1:17- 2:10

Question to Ask:

  • PREK: While Jonah was in the whale, he Prayed to God and God gave him a second chance! Do you think God would give you a second chance when you make a wrong choice, too?

  • ELEM: What can you tell someone who's feeling ashamed because of who they are or something they did? Do you believe it about yourself too?

MONTHLY MEMORY VERSE: "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him" Romans 15:13

SEPTEMBER 18

Big Idea: God gives me comfort when I am sad

Bible Story: Elijah flees to Horeb

Bible Passage: 1 Kings 19: 1-13

Question to Ask:

  • PREK: How does it make you feel to have a God who comforts you

  • ELEM: How does it make you feel to have a God who comforts you?

SEPTEMBER 25

Big Idea: Because of God, I can feel valued

Bible Story: Nehemiah rebuilds Jerusalem's walls

Bible Passage: Nehemiah 2:1-6,11-18

Question to Ask:

  • Prek: God helped Nehemiah in our story today because God loved and valued him. Do you remember how God helped Nehemiah?

  • ELEM: What would be one way of treating others the way God values them?


Resources...

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 Families Succeed. At HomeWord, we believe in STRONG MARRIAGES, CONFIDENT PARENTS, and EMPOWERED KIDS. We exist to strengthen and equip parents, couples and families.

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.
