Yesterday, we started a brand new series called Clue! We are so excited about what God is going to teach our kids through this series!
In rBackyard, we met our new characters and our special watch, Cluey, who will help us solve our mystery questions each week. This week we searched for clues from God’s Word, the Bible, to help solve our mystery question, “Is God Real?” We pretended to be secret agents, and learned from the story of the first boy and girl that God created (Genesis 2) that “God is real… because God made everything!” We colored a creation book that helps us remember all the things that God made: light, dark, rain, trees, birds, boys and girls!
Throughout this series, we will be searching for more clues from God’s Words to help us learn that God is real. During this series, our rBackyard kids will be learning this memory verse:
Believe that God is real (both arms point up)
He rewards everyone (pat self on back)
Who searches for Him. (binoculars to eyes, scanning room)
Hebrews 11:6 (hold up 6 fingers)
Be sure to practice it at home and help your kids memorize God’s Word! Memorizing God’s Word will help us become a Dangerous Church!
During this new series, Clue, we will be searching for clues that will help us solve some mysteries about God. Each week we will be asking a question and looking to the Bible for our answer. We met Parker Pif-Paf and Steve Smart, who are cousins that are searching for hidden treasure in the Pif-Paf Manor. They are going to help us solve our mysteries each week. This week they helped us decoded the mystery question, “Is God Real?”
Our kids recorded evidence that God is real in their Detective Notes that they took home to review this week. Through God's Word (story of Creation in the Bible), we discovered that "God is real! He created things that are impossible for people to make!” Encourage your child to tell you some of the things God made that are impossible for people to make (the stars, the sun, oceans, trees, gravities, heaven, and even our own hearts!). Talk with them about what they learned.
rCity kids will be learning a new memory verse this series. It is:
“But without faith no one can please God. We must believe that God is real and that He rewards everyone who searches for him.” Hebrews 11:6.
Be sure to encourage them to practice their verse this week. Memorizing God’s Word will help us become a Dangerous Church!
