Family Resources | Week of March 13th


This month preschoolers are learning that everyone can be friends with Jesus. This week they see this when Jesus walks right up to Matthew the tax collector and says, “Follow me.” Jesus again didn’t ask the powerful and famous, but a friendless tax collector, and Matthew left all to follow Jesus.

Lead Their Growth: While on the go, ask your child: “What makes someone a good friend?” Pray with your child and thank God that Jesus wants to be our friend even when we do something wrong.


This month elementary students are learning cooperation, working together to do more than you can alone. This week they see how Moses, Aaron, Hur, and Joshua worked together to defeat the Amalekites.

Monthly Verse: “Two people are better than one. They can help each other in everything they do.” Ecclesiastes 4:9 NIrV

Lead Their Growth: Who do you work well with? Help your child think of someone they work well with. Brainstorm ideas of how your child and that person could do something together to show God’s love to others.


This month Student Ministry will be discussing how tiny habits will really impact your life – for good or bad. If you’d like an additional resource, Atomic Habits by James Clear inspired some of the practical habit-developing concepts featured in this series.

We will not be meeting this week! Student Ministry will resume on Tuesday, March 22nd and Wednesday, March 23rd! Enjoy your Spring Break with your student!

Lead Their Growth: You can keep the conversation about habits going! Help them stick to their habit of spending time with God in the midst of Spring Break. Maybe share about your current habit of spending time with God and talk to your student about how you keep your habits when daily routines look different. You can also use the Bible plan on YouVersion here.
