Nov. 19 & 20: Rejoice in the Lord, The Prophets Show the Way to Bethlehem

This Weekend in MC Park, in Sunday School and Elementary Worship, your child learned about the story of the birth of Isaac.

Rejoice In The Lord

You can review the story of the birth of Isaac in Genesis 21:1-6. A great memory verse for your family this week is Philippians 4:4: "Rejoice in the lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!"

Questions for review with your child:
  1. Sarah and Abraham were very happy about what God had done for them.  They showed their happiness by rejoicing. What's the best reason you can think of for rejoicing?
  2. How do you show God you're feeling joyful about what He's done for you?
  3. When is it hard for you to be joyful? Why?
  4. When do you feel most joyful? Why?
  5. What do you think it means to be joyful?
  6. How can you be joyful this week at home? In school?
  7. How can a person rejoice even when he or she is not feeling happy?
  8. What's one reason you have to rejoice in the lord?
  9. Do you ever find it dificult to rejoice in the Lord in a difficult situation? How do you respond?
  10. The word praise means to tell the Lord how amazing he is. How do you think rejoicing and praising might be similar?
  11. What do you think it means when we say we can rejoice in the Lord?
  12. How can rejoicing in the Lord help you remember things He does for you? Explain.
In Worship and Wonder now through Jan. 15, every class (preschoolers on Sat. night, 3s-2nd graders at 9 a.m. Sunday; 3s, 4s and Ks at 11 a.m. Sunday) will be studying the same lesson. This week's lesson is the first one in the Advent series ...

The Prophets Show the Way to Bethlehem

Verses for this lesson: Isaiah 9:2 and John 1:5.

Questions to wonder about with your child:
  1. I wonder how the prophets listend to God?
  2. I wonder how they knew it was God who spoke?
  3. I wonder if there are still prophets today who can show us the way to Bethlehem?
  4. I wonder what the way to Bethlehem is like?
