Family Resources | Week of November 27th


This month preschoolers are learning that God is good. This week they see this when they learn about how Nehemiah repaired the wall, and God gave Nehemiah all kinds of people to help him. They will learn that they can thank God for people who help them.

Lead Their Growth: Cuddle with your child and pray: “God, thank you for the people who help us, like (name people who help you and your child). You are good.”


This month elementary students are learning about having courage– which is doing what’s right even when you’re afraid. This week, we learned about how Esther stood up to the King to save her people (Book of Esther). The main point was “God is with you even when you don’t know what will happen.” 

Monthly Verse: “Be strong and brave. Do not be afraid. Do not lose hope. I am the Lord Your God. I will be with you wherever you go.” - Joshua 1:9 (NIrV)

Lead Their Growth: Read Esther 4:14 to your child, “You were born for a time just like this.” Ask them, “Do you believe God created you for a purpose? Why or why not?” Then pray and thank God that we can be courageous because He is always with us.


This week, we'll examine an imprecatory psalm and the story of Jesus' betrayal, arrest, and crucifixion. Maybe Jesus' example on the cross demonstrates that superhuman forgiveness isn't what God expects from us — it's what Jesus did for us. Jesus is God, but you're human. So sometimes forgiveness will be difficult for you. That's especially true the more deeply you've been hurt. So when forgiveness seems impossible, remember you're not talking to a God who doesn't understand your pain. When you've been hurt, know Jesus has too.

Monthly Verse: "I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth." – Job 19:25 (NIV)

Lead Their Growth: You can go over this week's scriptures as a family (Psalm 109:6-15, 147:3; Luke 22:39-23:46). Talk to your student about how to help a friend who my be going through hurt right now. Help them talk through how to be a good friend and resources they can give that friend.
