God Parts the Red Sea (Oct 19-20)
We worship the God who speaks. This weekend in children's church, we continue the story of Moses and the Israelites. Ages 3-K see how God speaks through His creation and His miracles when He parts the Red Sea. Grades 1-5 remember how God kept His promise to save His people and that He has made a way for us to be saved, too.
In Children's Church, Grades 1-5 will receive a personal invitation to be close to God through receiving Jesus as their Lord and Savior. If you or your child would like to know more about how to receive eternal life, use the Children’s Guide for New Believers (downloadable here) for further discussion and prayer.
When you sit at home: Ages 3-K read Exodus 14:9-10, 13-16, 21-22. Grades 1-2 read Exodus 14:5-6, 9-10, 13-16, 21-22, 31. Grade 3 reads Exodus 13:21; 14:5-7,10, 13-16, 19-23, 26, 31. Grades 4-5 read Exodus 13:21-22; 14:5-7, 10, 13-16,19-26, 31; 15:1-2. According to verse Exodus 14:10, did the Israelites trust God to protect them? Did Moses trust God to protect them? What does he tell the Israelites in Exodus 14:13-14?
Ages 4-K Whisper Verse: “The Lord saved them.”
When you walk along the road: God parted the Red Sea to save His people. After God’s people were safe, Moses’ sister led them in a song of praise. What is your favorite song to sing about God?
When you lie down: Pray this prayer each day this week: “Thank You, Lord, for saving Your people by parting the Red Sea. Thank You for sending Your Son Jesus to save us from our sins so we can be close to You.”
When you get up: Have each family member trace one of their feet on paper and cut it out. On the footprint, write “The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save.” Zephaniah 3:17. Decorate the footprints and place them where you will be reminded of God’s great power and love for us.
