Summer of “Re-runs”

This summer in Sunday Morning Preschool Worship we are going back and reviewing some of our Bible stories we learned over the past year. You can find all the @Home worship guides for each session below. I encourage you to do one of the activities listed each week together as a family! The Discipleship Hour will begin again on August 14, at which time we will resume our chronological study through the Bible with “new” lessons during 9am & 11am Preschool Worship and 4pm Discipleship Classes.

June 4: Bikes, Trikes & Scooters

This Saturday, June 4, is Bikes, Trikes & Scooters Day from 9:30-11:30am at Imago Dei Church. Bring the whole family along with your child’s favorite non-motorized method of transportation and join other kids 5th grade and younger for a time of cruising around the IDC parking lot. Parking will be available on the right side of the lot and the left side of the parking lot will be blocked off for riding.

Reminders: 

  • Please remain on campus with your child and provide supervision at all times.
  • All children must wear helmets while riding.
  • Bring plenty of water. 

We are looking forward to a fun time of fellowship with all our IDC Kids and their families!

The People Kept Sinning (Judges 2)
After God’s people sinned, the judges helped God’s people obey God again. But the judges could not change the people’s hearts and make them love God. God had a plan. He sent His Son, Jesus, to change His people’s hearts and save them from sin forever.

Family Discussion Starters:
• What is one thing you remember from this week’s Bible story?
• Who did God send to help His people when they cried out to Him?
• Why do you think God’s people kept worshiping their neighbors’ false gods over and over again even after God sent a judge to help them?
• Who can save us from sin and change our hearts to want to obey God?

Family Activities:
• As a family, study a cycle, such as the water cycle, the life cycle of a butterfly, or recycling. Emphasize the repetitive nature of the cycle. Talk about the Judges cycle: God’s people worshiped their neighbors’ false gods; God let other kings rule over them and life was hard; the people cried out to God; God sent a judge to rescue His people; when the judge died, the people disobeyed God again.
• Point your kids to Jesus as you discipline them this week. Talk about how only Jesus can change our hearts to want to obey God.

Unit 9: A Pattern of Disobedience

Unit Description: God’s people were in the promised land, but not all was well. Generation after generation continued a cycle of sin with troubling consequences. Because God is just and holy, He did not allow His people’s sin to go unchecked. Because He is also loving and gracious, He provided forgiveness through repentance.

Big Picture Question: What is the punishment for sin? The punishment for sin is death (separation from God).

May 15: The People Kept Sinning (Judges 2) 
May 22: God Used Samson (Judges 13–16) 
May 29: God Provided for Ruth (Ruth)
June 5: God Provided for Hannah (1 Samuel 1–3) 
June 12: Eli’s Sons Disobeyed God (1 Samuel 4–6) 
June 19: God Takes Sin Seriously (Ephesians 2)
