HOME DISCIPLESHIP... January 2023

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.

OVERVIEW:

4-week series from the Gospels on Jesus' early life and ministry


“When I’m older!” “When I’m taller!” Every kid is excited to grow up — even if it’s just to finally ride that big kid roller coaster they’ve had their eye on. This five-week series is about another kid who grew up — Jesus! Through stories from Jesus’ early life and ministry, kids will learn five important truths to help them continue growing: God guides us to safety, we can love God with our actions, we can follow Jesus, and God makes us ready at the right time.

Big Idea: We can love God with our actions

Bible Story: The boy Jesus at the temple Luke 2:41-52

ASK

  • How can you show God you love Him?

  • In what ways is it easy to love with our actions? What ways can it be challenging?

Big Idea: God makes us ready at the right time

Bible Story: Jesus Begins His ministry Matthew 4:12-23

ASK

  • What are some ways we know it is the right time for something?

  • What is a way we can be prepared for anything God might call us to?


MEMORY VERSE:

Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

TO KNOW:

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?"

January 8

Big Idea: God Guides us to safety

Bible Story: The escape to Egypt Matthew 2:13-23

  • Can you think of a time when you felt safe?

Big Idea: We can follow Jesus

Bible Story: The baptism of Jesus John 1:29-42

ASK

  • What can we do to show we are following Jesus?

  • How would you tell someone else what it means to follow Jesus?


What's coming up in February?

The internet helps us learn how to do so many things! From new skate tricks and viral recipes to helpful hacks, there’s a “how-to” for almost everything. But is there a tutorial video for how to follow God? This four-week series is kind of like that — thanks to some tutorials from Jesus! Each week, we’ll focus on one of Jesus’ teachings from the Sermon on the Mount as we learn "how to" make a difference, love our enemies, share with others, and pray.

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.
