THIS WEEK:

From the Sermon: Christ Our Priest

Preacher: Pastor Jon Needham
Scripture: Hebrews 9:11-12 & 10:1-14

This week we learned that Jesus is our Great High Priest. In the Old Testament, God used priests to sacrifice animals for people’s sin. That taught God’s people that sin is a big deal and that something must die in order for our sins to be forgiven. When Jesus came, he was the better priest with the better sacrifice: himself. Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross took away our sin forever and made us children of God! We don’t have to die for our sins because Jesus died in our place. Thank you, Jesus, for being our Great High Priest!

Family Discussion Questions:

  1. What’s something that surprised or confused you about this Bible passage? (Look back at your Sermon Notes for help remembering!)
  2. What was the job of the priests in the Old Testament?
  3. What is a sin that you struggle with? Model praying for repentance as a family. 
  4. How is God different from you or me?
  5. How can you show others your thankfulness for what Jesus has done for you?
Parent Tip:
· Read the sermon summary together as a family. Build this into your normal routine, perhaps reading together around the table during a meal.
· There are five questions, each with a different theme. You can choose one night a week to go over all five, do a couple questions a few times a week, or discuss one question per day.
· Each question is meant to be a conversation starter. Model for your children how to answer these questions by sharing your own personal insights.  
· Even if your conversations don’t go as planned, don’t be discouraged. ALL time spent talking about and reading God’s word is valuable!
· The more consistent you are in having these discussions, the more fruitful they will be. As this becomes part of your weekly rhythm, your kids will anticipate the questions and listen more attentively at church.

Other Scriptures:

Parent Tip:
Use these additional scriptures as daily reading. These are also a great way to help your children learn to locate passages in the Bible.

Attribute of God:

HOLY: God is different than all of creation. He is perfect in goodness and righteousness. There is no one like God.

Parent Tip:
We focus on a new attribute of God each week to discuss as a family. Use this time to discuss who God is, answer questions the kids might have, and talk about what that week’s attribute means to each person in your family.

Prayer Focus:

COMMUNITY: Pray for those in our community who are being invited to go to an Easter church service, that they would go and respond to the Gospel.

Parent Tip:
Each week of the month has its own prayer theme: Church, Family, Community and Repentance. Use these themes to show your children how to pray. It can be helpful to add this to an already existing routine like at bedtime or when you’re in the car together.

THIS MONTH:

I Saw the Light

I wandered so aimless life filled with sin
I wouldn’t let my dear savior in
Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night
Praise the Lord I saw the light.

I saw the light I saw the light
No more darkness no more night
Now I’m so happy no sorrow in sight
Praise the Lord I saw the light

Just like a blind man I wandered along
Worries and fears I claimed for my own
Then like a blind man that God gave back his sight
Praise the Lord I saw the light

I was a fool to wander and astray
Straight is the gate and narrow the way
Now I have traded the wrong for the right
Praise the Lord I saw the light.

Parent Tip:
Each month we highlight a different song for you to sing together. Singing is an integral part of worship! Singing as a family helps teach the kids how to worship at church, and as they learn more songs, they will be able to participate more on Sunday mornings. You can practice your songs in the car, at the dinner table, when you wake up, or at bedtime! You can also check out our playlist on Spotify and sing along with your favorite worship songs.

Memory Verse:

Proverbs 1:7
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

Parent Tip:
This is the same memory verse that the whole church is learning and it rotates monthly. Practice reciting it as a family each day at least once. Dinner time is a great opportunity to practice together.

New City Catechism:

Question 2: What is God?
Answer:
God is the creator of everyone and everything.

Parent Tip:
We are making our way through the New City Catechism with a new question every month. You can practice catechism questions anytime throughout the day! For the complete list of questions, answers and songs, download the free app “New City Catechism” on your device.
