The Israelites finally entered the land God had promised to them. However, their battles weren’t over as they faced the enemies around them, both other countries and the consequences of their own sin. Throughout all the challenges, one thing remained the same – the sweetness of God’s greatness. This month kids will learn about the greatness of God that sets Him apart from everyone and everything else.
Jesus called people to follow Him. He assembled a group of twelve and many others followed as well. Some turned away, but Jesus taught how to be a resilient disciple. He taught His followers how to pray, the importance of God’s Word changing us, and how to put Him first. Jesus still calls each of us to be resilient disciples as well.
The process of a Christ follower committing meaningful, intentional, and consistent time and space to a child or a group of children so that they may know who Jesus is and are known by a body of believers (Belong), to place their faith in Jesus and apply the Word of God (Believe), and to reproduce their own discipleship (Become) so that a third spiritual generation can lead and love like Jesus Christ.
Israel’s problems didn’t end once they had a king. They continued to disobey God. God raised up prophets who carried His messages to the people, warning them to follow Him and of coming consequences. Just as the prophets told, Israel was taken over by enemies and exiled from their homes. Still, God showed the people His holiness and how great He is over all of their circumstances. From visions of His holiness, to a dramatic rescue, to His compassion towards a rebellious prophet, to working through His people to restore what was broken, God was near to His people.
Jesus came and taught the people whThroughout the Old Testament, God promised that He would send a Savior, One who would rescue the people from sin. He kept that promise by sending His Son into a human family. As fully human and fully God, Jesus would be the perfect sacrifice for our sin. This month, Jesus will be in the spotlight as kids learn more about who He is and how He could be God’s promised Savior.at it really looks like to follow God. Through parables, personal interactions, and public demonstrations, Jesus taught that the way we live matters but we thankfully don’t have to do it alone.
