We are excited you have come to be a part of our gathering, and are thankful you've invited us into your lives. We know the online community is another facet of what God is doing in the midst of us each week. We pray that what happens in your heart as you engage with us online translates into "off-line" conversations you have with the people in your life this week, as you share with them what God is doing in you.
You don’t have to do this alone! Our heart is to encourage you to connect with others and explore together ways God wants to work in and through you. Consider inviting others in your world - friends, family, neighbors - to share this time with you.
No matter where you are, or where you're coming from, know that we're praying for you — that Christ, by his Spirit, would draw you into a place of dependence on his Life and availability to his leading, to the glory of the Father.
Worship with us in Early Childhood this week by watching the large group video below, then use the conversation starters to help you connect the main idea from the Bible story with your child's everyday life. These questions are designed to help you share your faith with your child, and hear how your child is thinking about God and Jesus.
Episode 3: God's plan is perfect.
As Poppy counts down to the neighborhood campout, she's double-checking her list, which helps her make sure she sticks to her plan. She's hoping that by following her plan, the campout will be perfect. Ollie reminds her through the story of Baby Moses that God's plan is perfect.
These conversation starters help you connect the main idea from the Bible story with your BT Lil' Kid's everyday life. These questions are designed for you to be able to share your faith with your child and hear how your child is thinking about God and Jesus.
For PARENT and KID: Imagine you were Moses's mom. How hard would it be to put your baby in a basket in the river?
For PARENT: Share a time when it was hard to trust God's plan.
For KID: Why can we trust God's plan?
TOGETHER: Let's ask God to show us how we can trust his perfect plan even when it's hard.
These activities are ways to bring Sunday home and be a part of your BT Lil' Kids' world. They are designed to be woven into the fabric of your day as a way to talk about God as you play, bathe, drive, cuddle, and move.
BATH TIME: Bring and action figure and a tupperware container to the bath and place the action figure in the container, pretending it is Baby Moses. Act out the story.
CUDDLE TIME: As you cuddle with your little one, tell them about when he/she was a baby. Then thank God for his perfect plan to send him/her to you and trust God for his/her future.
