This Week in Family Worship

Look back:  Read back over 1 Samuel 7 and remember God responds to Samuel’s intercession for Israel as they repent of sins and trust him for deliverance.

Look ahead: This coming Sunday, Pastor Michael will be preaching from 1 Samuel 8. Read the passage several times during the week with your family.

Ask: What were Samuel's sons like? What did the Israelites want and why? What did Samuel warn them about? 

Pray: Adoration: Praise God, our true king. Confession: Confess any sin the passage brings to mind.  Thanksgiving: Give thanks for God's grace, kindness, and patience.  Supplication: Pray for any needs within your family.

Sing: Visit the blog for this week's music. You can also find our music playlists on Spotify.

From Sunday School September 25:

CHRIST CONNECTION

This is the big idea of how this week’s Bible story points to Jesus.

 

  • Younger Preschool: Elisha’s miracles showed that he was a prophet of God. Jesus’ miracles show that He is the Son of God.
  • Kids: Elisha’s miracles showed that he was a prophet of the one true God and that God’s words were true. In a greater way, Jesus’ miracles show that He is the true Son of God.

 

BIG PICTURE QUESTION & ANSWER

This is an important biblical truth that your child will encounter each week of this unit. 

  • Younger Preschool: What is idolatry? Idolatry is loving something else more than God.
  • Kids: What is idolatry? Idolatry is a sin of the heart in which we love and value something else above God.

KEY PASSAGE

This is a Bible verse that relates to what your child will encounter each week of this unit. 

  • Younger Preschool: Love the Lord your God. Deuteronomy 6:5
  • Kids: “Listen, Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.” Deuteronomy 6:4-5
