Memory Verse

Do you recognize your Mum’s voice? Hopefully! Imagine if your mum was talking to you and you didn’t recognize her voice. In fact you thought it was your Auntie’s voice… That would be strange aye! Because if you live with your mum, you hear her voice all the time. You do everything with her. You are close to your mum! You have a relationship with her too!…

Well this weeks Memory Verse is about Recognizing God’s voice:

Job 33:14 For God speaks again and again, though people do not recognize it.

Wow! This verse make me think about us recognizing our Mum’s voice. If we are close to God and have Him living in our hearts (just like being close to mum and living in her house) and we practice talking and listening to God (just like we listen and talk to mum) then we should find it easier to hear Him speak.

You can have confidence that God speaks to you!

For the Parents

WORSHIP

Kids LOVE singing and yes, some do more than others but I’ve got a really BIG TIP for you parents out there… kids will follow you… What does that mean? Well, when you put on the Praise and Worship, do it with them. Go a LOT crazy and they will go a LITTLE crazy. If you want them to lift their hands, then show them how, talk about it with them. If you want them to sing, then I’m sorry, but chances are you’ll need to sing too!  If you are the practical type, maybe make some streamers or ribbons to wave around. Or perhaps you have some bright scarves hiding in the cupboard or bright rags! Feel free to be creative with this. Children mirror us, so what are you mirroring to your kids? 

BIBLE STORIES 

Please check out the Bible Story’s before your kids… “Why?” you might ask… Because some stories can have sad elements (eg. Noah’s Ark, Easter) cause distress for some children. We try and source stories that are age appropriate. With our Bible Stories, there is always a positive learning element. We would recommend that you watch the story set for your child’s age and if you think it’s too young, go and check out what an older class is covering. Again, if it’s too advanced for your child, choose a younger class. 

We recommend parents engage with their children as they watch these Bible stories in case they have questions. Please note: some Bible Stories look the same, but they are not, BUT they have been made by the same YouTube channel.

VALUABLE

We like our children to be inspired, encouraged and lets face it, if it helps them, it helps us! Your children are important to us and they SUPER important to God. We have put together this webpage so your children know that they are important, loved and that we have taken the time to invest in them!

They are VALUEABLE! We want them to feel: loved, joyful, inspired, excited, and equipped spiritually. Life is unpredictable, but God is sure and secure, we can always rely on Him. 

FEELING HEARD?

We want to encourage our families to bring God into the conversations that we are having with our children. How are we feeling? What are we thinking? Can we share what we are thinking with Mum & Dad? We want our children feel safe when they share with us. So how do we do that? We listen and don’t react, but thoughtful process with the Holy Spirit how we can offer wise council to them. Maybe they just need us to listen… God sees us and our children, He wants us to share with Him and feel safe with Him.  

SUPERVISING…! 

PLEASE NOTE: that after watching our video links, youTube will pop up with suggestions for you to watch. We advise, having an adult in the room while your child watches these videos as we don’t know what content might show after our videos.  

Also, we recommend an adult taking part in the activities. Especially with the younger children as they won’t be able to participate in the activities unless an adult helps them.

Memory Verses 

Let’s be SLAP HAPPY with this one! The point of our Memory Verses is it gets into our kids spirits. To do that, we want it to be a fun experience. You don’t have to do what we have given you to do, instead you might like to make a Memory Verse Puzzle (written down and cut up into pieces or your kids to solve), or play Hide & Seek (hide it on pieces of paper for your kids to find). You could also make a song, rap or a dance, out of the memory verse. Perhaps you might light to say it to a hand game or say it to a beat. Have a go, it will be fun!

Here is a letter that that we put together that you can download that is very practical about how you can help your kids.
