Parent Helps from the 5/31 Sermon on Romans 8:29-39

Parents, we want to give you some guidance when talking through the sermon from this Sunday with your kids. Maybe you can do a recap tonight during your family worship time or during dinner.

Be sure to check out the kids lesson for this Sunday @ goredemptionkids.com. Here are some discussion starter questions to connect what they are learning with the sermon:

  • Preschool
    • What was your favorite part about service today? (i.e. the music, a particular song, seeing Pastor Ed, spending time with mommy and daddy)
    • Today we talked about someone being “For Us”. Who is “for us” (or always wants the best for us)? (God)
    • God wants to protect His children. How has God protected or cared for you?
    • We know that God’s Word is the truth so we should hide it in our heart. Let’s try to memorize Romans 8:31b, “If God is for us, who can be against us?”. Practice saying it together.
    • Pray, asking God to help you remember that He is for His children.
  • Elementary
    • Today we talked about someone being “For Us”. Who is “for us” (or always wants the best for us)? (God)
    • How has God taken care of you this past week?
    • In our children’s lesson this week we learn that the Israelites were complaining to God in the wilderness. What was something you complained about this week?
    • The Israelites complained that they were hungry and that God brought them to the wilderness to die. Do you think God wanted bad things for them? (No.)
    • In the children’s story, how did God take care of the Israelites while they were in the wilderness and complaining about being hungry? (God sent “bread from Heaven” or manna and quail.)
    • God provided for the Israelites when they asked for help. He wanted the best for them. Will God provide for you when you ask for help? (Yes.)
    • What do you need to ask God to help you with right now?
    • We know that God’s Word is the truth so we should hide it in our heart. Let’s try to memorize Romans 8:31b, “If God is for us, who can be against us?”. Practice saying it together.
    • Pray, asking God to help you and asking Him to remind you that God cares for His children.
    • Be sure to check out the kids video and lesson for this week at goredemptionkids.com.

We hope this helps you talk with your kids about worship. We also want to point you to our children’s ministry weekly lessons which are only available on the blog at goredemptionkids.com. Remember the Bible is one big story and it is important for us to learn that whole story!
