Children's resources to use at home

  • During this unprecedented time in our country's history when some families are still worshipping from home, we want to encourage parents to engage their children in Bible lessons at home. 

  • Children's Resources for the week of July 5, 2020:



    Good Morning Reef Parents!


    Sometimes it’s hard enough to get kids to listen, but it’s a whole other challenge to get them to do what you say. Listen and do what is right—that’s the challenge this week’s family lesson tackles. Don’t be mistaken, though. It’s not just a challenge for kids—it’s for every one of us.


    When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. (You can access the YouTube playlist here.) It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family. And don’t forget to participate in the worship videos from Yancy afterwards—one song is for older kids and one is for younger kids.


    Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:


    Bible Story: Listen and Do What is Right (James 1:19-27)

    Big Idea: God calls us to listen to His word and do what it tells us.

    Memory Verse: “Don’t just listen to the word. You fool yourselves if you do that. You must do what it says.” James 1:22 (NIrV)


    After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:


    •          Family activities guide
    •          Coloring page for kids
    •          GO! Home guide for kids
    •          Bible verse sign


    Finally, I want to leave you with this encouragement from Jeremiah 17:7-8: “But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” (NIV) Today, be rooted in the One who gives you Living Water.


    God Bless You ALL!  Stay safe!  Stay well!


    Thanks for sharing your kids with us!
