Preschool-Kindergarten, Sunday Sept 15: John Baptized Jesus

Bible Text: Matthew 3:1-17

Read with Me Bible Reference: Pages 286-289

Key Point of Passage: John baptized people for repentance, but Jesus brings the Holy Spirit too.

Memory Verse: Jesus is the Son of God (Acts 9:20).

Questions for Discussion:

1)      John the Baptist taught people to turn away from their sins and then he baptized them. What is sin? What does baptize mean?

2)      When Jesus was baptized, some very special things happened. Do you remember what they were?

3)      John said he baptized only with water, but that Jesus baptizes with the Holy Spirit. When we believe in Jesus today, do we receive the Holy Spirit too?

Preschool-Kindergarten, Sundays Aug 11-18: Righteousness, Consequences and the Gospel

The Preschool-Kindergarten class finished our Proverbs Wisdom series by learning about the topics of Righteousness, Consequences and the Gospel.  We learned about how righteous actions produce good fruit, and sinful actions produce bad consequences on August 11th. Then, we talked more about Righteousness and how both Proverbs and the rest of the Bible teach that Jesus needs to be our Righteousness. We presented the Gospel message in class this past Sunday. But knowing how important this is, we encourage you to follow up with your children this week and regularly regarding these topics. Our memory verse for this unit was Romans 6:23: “When you sin, you get death. But the gift of God is eternal life because of what Jesus has done”.

On Aug 11, we looked at Consequences. Check out our Parent Handout here: Parent Handout – Consequences

On Aug 18, we looked at Righteousness (the Gospel). Check out our Parent Handout here: Parent Handout – Gospel

Questions for Discussion:

1)      Joseph’s brothers knew they had done many mean things to him when they were young. Have you ever been hurt by a brother or sister or friend?

2)      Joseph’s brothers were scared he would be mad. Did they say they were sorry and ask Joseph to forgive them?

3)      Joseph trusted that God would use everything for good, even the mean things his brothers had done. Does God still use everything for good?

4)      Does God wants us to trust him and forgive others when they hurt us too?
