Faith Passed Down (and up and sideways)

SUNDAY IS COMING
Children ages 3-10 will be signed in from 9:45am at the open space on the way to their rooms - look for Nathan.
BABES&TOTS can be taken to the classroom and signed in there.

TO READ TOGETHER
2 Timothy 1:1-14
Paul writes this letter to his friend Timothy to remind him to keep following Jesus and keep developing the faith that his mother and grandmother have passed on to him.

Faith is a difficult concept to grasp because it is not concrete. Help kids understand that faith is what helps us believe in Jesus. Rather than being anxious about faith, kids can rest assured that it is the Holy Spirit’s job to help faith grow in their hearts! 

TO TALK ABOUT:
Who helps you grow in your love for God?
Who is teaching you about following Jesus?

TO PRAY TOGETHER
Dear God, your love is amazing. Thank you for all the people who have shared your love with us. Help us to share it everywhere that we are. Amen.

TO DO TOGETHER
Sit next to each other in the dark holding flashlights. Sing “This Little Light of Mine” and turn on your flashlights when you come to the line “I’m gonna let it shine.” Name different ways your family can share God’s love with others.

BRIDGEKIDS LIBRARY
We have a few bins at the sign in desk with worship CDs, DVDs, Kids books and parent books for you to borrow. Take a few minutes to have a look this weekend.

HAPPY AUTUMN
In bridgeKIDS we aim to get outside any chance we can, so on a morning where it isn’t throwing down rain we’ll head out for at least part of the morning. I have a friend who says there isn’t any bad weather just poor clothing choices. Please help your kids remember a coat or warm clothes if it looks like we might be able to be outside.
