Jerusalem's Walls Were Rebuilt • March 19, 2021 • Josh Cooley

I hope you’re having a great week! This week’s lesson is entitled “Jerusalem’s Walls Were Rebuilt” (Nehemiah chapters 3-6). It’s the second of our two-part series in the Book of Nehemiah. Many of us are familiar with the story of Nehemiah — how this great leader and man of God accomplished a seemingly impossible task of rebuilding an entire city wall in 52 days amidst great difficulties. But we’re going to look closer at the story (in fun ways, of course!) to see how Nehemiah constantly brought his concerns to the Lord in prayer. It’s a great reminder for kids today that we should be “casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7). The Lord is a faithful God who can always be trusted, especially because of the great sacrifice he made to reconcile lost sinners to himself through Christ! I encourage you to find a moment this weekend to sit down with your kids and watch the “Kids Online” family worship video. Don’t forget to take some time and talk about it together as a family using the questions below! TALK ABOUT IT - Talk about a time you worked really hard on something. - What did Nehemiah believe about God? - How does Nehemiah show us that He trusted God? - What do you believe about God? - How do you show that you trust God?

God Saved His People Through Esther • March 5, 2021 • Olivia Vines

This week’s lesson is entitled “God Saved His People Through Esther” (Esther chapters 6-10). It’s the second of our two-part series in the Book of Esther. Olivia Vines, our teacher this week, will continue to show the kids that while God is not explicitly named in the book, he was sovereignly and powerfully working through Esther to save the Jews from Haman’s evil plot and continue his great plan to bring a Redeemer into the world through his chosen people. Olivia will explain that just as God’s fingerprints were all over Esther’s life, God’s fingerprints are all over our lives, too, even when we can’t immediately see it. I encourage you to find a moment this weekend to sit down with your kids and watch the “Kids Online” family worship video.

Esther Became Queen • February 26, 2021 • Olivia Vines

This week’s lesson is entitled “Esther Became Queen” (Esther chapters 1-4), and it starts a two-part series in the Book of (you guessed it!) Esther. While this wonderful book famously never mentions the word “God,” the Lord’s fingerprints are all over the story as he sovereignly helps her rise to power and save the Jews from annihilation, allowing his plan of a coming Messiah to continue. Olivia Vines, our awesome Kids Ministry intern, will teach the kids these great truths from Esther this week and next week. I encourage you to find a moment this weekend to sit down with your kids and watch the “Kids Online” family worship video. Don’t forget to take some time and talk about it together as a family using the questions below! TALK ABOUT IT What do you do when you are afraid? How do you see God at work in this story?

The Temple Was Completed • February 19, 2021 • Josh Cooley

This week’s lesson is entitled “The Temple Was Completed” (Ezra chapters 4-6). It’s the story of how God once again did mighty works, including moving the heart of a pagan king, to help his people finish the second temple in Jerusalem after they returned from Babylonian exile. This lesson provides a wonderful opportunity to help kids understand why we don’t need a temple to worship God anymore and the beauty of 1 Corinthians 3:16: “Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?” These are amazing gospel truths that we’ll discuss this week at a level that kids can digest. I encourage you to find a moment this weekend to sit down with your kids and watch the “Kids Online” family worship video. Don’t forget to take some time and talk about it together as a family using the questions below! TALK ABOUT IT What’s your favorite work project to do at home or for someone else? Why do you think God wanted his people to finish the temple? Where can we worship God? Where does God’s presence dwell now? What does it mean to have God’s Spirit living inside you? (Hint: Mr. Josh helped us understand this!)

God Brought His People Home • February 12, 2021 • Josh Cooley

This week’s lesson is entitled “God Brought His People Home” (Ezra chapters 1-3). It’s the story of how God faithfully kept his promise to return his people to the land of Judah after 70 years of Babylonian exile. Shortly after the Persians conquered Babylon, God remarkably stirred the heart of pagan King Cyrus to allow the Jews to return to Judah and rebuild the temple. This is a wonderful story of God’s great love and forgiveness toward his people despite their many sins against him, and it has beautiful connection points to us today since we, too, are in great need of God’s love and forgiveness. Praise the Lord that he has provided this through his Son, Jesus! I encourage you to find a moment this weekend to sit down with your kids and watch the “Kids Online” family worship video. Don’t forget to take some time and talk about it together as a family using the questions below!

Daniel Was Rescued • February 5, 2021 • Josh Cooley

This week’s lesson is entitled “Daniel Was Rescued” (Daniel 6). It’s the well-known but nevertheless remarkable story of how Daniel courageously refused to pray to anyone except the one true God despite a terribly unjust law that told him to pray to the Persian king. For taking a stand for his faith, he was thrown into a lion’s den.   As we’ll learn this week, this story is not only about Daniel’s amazing faith and courage in the face of a life-threatening situation, but most importantly, how God was faithful to Daniel and rescued him from death. Today, God is still rescuing his people from death when we trust in him through faith in his Son, Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord! I encourage you to find some time this weekend to sit down with your child and watch this week’s Kids Ministry family worship video. Don’t forget to talk about it together as a family using the questions below! TALK ABOUT IT What do you think is the most amazing part of this story?  Do you think Daniel was scared about being thrown into the lion’s den? Why or why not?   What can you do the next time you feel pressure to do something you know God would not want?   What was the result of Daniel’s trust in God?  What example does Jesus give us about obeying even when it’s very difficult?
