This week’s Kids Ministry lesson is entitled “David Sinned and Was Restored” (2 Samuel 11:1–12:14; Psalm 51). Our video this week features Kathy Rexrode as teacher! We’ll be hearing a powerful lesson about the consequences of our sin and a wonderful reminder of the God who forgives us and washes us completely clean of all our wrongdoings when we turn toward him in repentance and faith.

The Praises of God's People • September 20, 2020 • Olivia Vines
I hope you and your family are having a great week. We have another new teacher for this week’s “Kids Online” video, Olivia Vines. Woo-hoo! Olivia is the 2020-21 Kids Ministry intern, a senior at UNC, and the kindergarten team intern at Voyager Academy in Durham. She was also a large group teacher and small group leader in Kids Ministry before COVID-19 began. This week’s lesson is entitled “The Praises of God’s People.” It covers the Book of Psalms, focusing on three different psalms – 1, 100, and 110. Olivia does a great job explaining the beautiful themes found throughout the entire Psalter and the specific messages in each of these three psalms. In her lesson, she discusses: - Psalm 1: Choosing the path of righteousness instead of wickedness. - Psalm 100: Giving thanks to God because of his faithfulness. - Psalm 110: Rejoicing in the promise of a messianic priest-king, which was fulfilled in Christ. I encourage you to find a moment this weekend to sit down with your kids and watch the video. Don’t forget to take some time and talk about it together as a family!

Job • September 13, 2020 • Aliza Nedimeyer
I hope you and your family are having a great week. We have a new teacher for this week’s “Kids Online” video, Aliza Nedimyer. Woo-hoo! Aliza is a doctoral student at UNC, but she has been a teacher and small group leader for several years in Kids Ministry. This week’s lesson is simply entitled “Job.” It ambitiously covers the whole book of Job, and Aliza does a great job tackling the important truths and deep mysteries found within this book and bringing them to a child’s level. Some of the topics she addresses are: - Why did God allow all those terrible things to happen to Job? - Why does God allow bad things to happen to us? - How should we respond when trials and difficulties happen in our lives? - And what’s up with Satan approaching God to talk about Job in the first place?! These are important things not only for adults to understand, but kids, too, since we live in a broken world filled with hardships. I encourage you to find a moment this weekend to sit down with your kids and watch the video. Don’t forget to take some time and talk about it together as a family!

Solomon Thought About Life • September 4, 2020 • Josh Cooley
This week’s Kids Ministry lesson is entitled “Solomon Thought About Life” (Ecclesiastes 1:1-11). Ecclesiastes is one of the most unique, challenging books of the Bible for adults, let alone kids! It forces us to grapple with weighty questions such as “Why did God create me?”, “What’s the meaning of life?” and “What’s my purpose for being here?” This week, we’ll try to bring this appropriately to a kids’ level and help them understand that God created them for a specific purpose (to worship and obey him) and that only through Jesus can we truly find meaning in life.
