LESSON FIVE - 26/04/2020
Hi Parents & Carers,
Welome to Kidzone online. This Sunday we start our NEW curriculum – “Dive In”. The Bible is God’s Word, and its wisdom is as deep as the ocean. We can dip our toes in it and stay mostly on the beach, or we can do as Paul advises Timothy, and dive in. Over the next few weeks, we will be giving the children practical actions they can take to become daily readers of the Bible. We hope you will encourage Bible reading and work with them as they develop these new habits of reading the Word of God.
Bottom Line: God wants us to know the Bible.
Objective: Kids will learn that the Bible has answers for any question they face in life.
Memory verse: Psalm 119:105 – “Your word is like a lamp that shows me the way. It is like a light that guides me.”
Scripture to read: 2 Timothy 3:14-17 – Scripture Equips Us For Every Good Work
Summary: Why would anyone snorkel or scuba dive? It’s so much easier to just wade in the ankle deep water near the shore and then go back to your comfy beach chair. People choose to put in the effort to dive beneath the surface because of all the beautiful sights they can see there! Why should we study the Bible? As Paul says in his letter to Timothy, the Scripture is valuable and has many uses. The primary reason to study God’s word is to know Jesus better. We can learn a little from sitting in our chair at church and listening to someone talk about Jesus, but we learn so much more when we dive in ourselves!
Activity: Have the kids colour the under the sea colouring page below as a reminder – and encouragement – to dive deep and explore the Bible.
Make this week’s lesson real: Sit down and read one of your favourite Bible stories with your kids. Tell them why you love this passage, and what it has taught you.
Here are some great discussion starters:
What advice did Paul give Timothy?
What can the Bible teach us?
Do you think you are ready to start reading the Bible daily?
Quiz your child on this week’s memory verse.
Teach us how to read Your Word. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Thank you for your support and may God bless you all!
