In our desire to equip parents as they “train their children up in the way they should go,” we have created a blog series to communicate the lessons our kids will be learning each Sunday, family verses to memorize together, and resources to help you as the parent to disciple your children.
This week as we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus let this be a time of connecting and discussing with our kids what that really means in our lives and how that impacts this world we live in.
The word “disciple” means to intentionally impact the life of someone in the direction of being more like Jesus.
Disciples follow Jesus and help others follow Him too.
Every week faithful servants enter into this discipleship process with the children in Renew Kids. There are three classes every Sunday: Nursery (ages 0-2), Primary (ages 3-6), and Challenge (ages 6-10).
Note: The Challenge and Primary Class will be combining for Resurrection Sunday and will together meet in the Primary Classroom.
This week’s Family Verse
“We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over Him.” —Romans 6:9
Challenge (grade-school) & Primary Class
The Challenge and Primary Class will be taking part in the EASTER Catechism that will engage the kids into the greatest story ever lived and told. This narrative will help connect the dots for the kids about this amazing life changing event. Catechism (kat-i-kiz-uhm) is defined as a summary of the principles of Christian religion in the form of questions and answers, used for the instruction of Christians. Simply put, it’s the cadence of questions and answers for the purpose of creating understanding.
The EASTER Catechism offers a simple rhythm designed to help move our class through the EASTER catechism; read, memorize, chat, and pray.
Challenge & Primary Study
This week in the Challenge and Primary Class they will be celebrating the life of Jesus with the EASTER Catechism: THE RESURRECTION.
