May 19 & 20: Children’s Sunday School and Wonder and Worship

Christians Encourage Each Other

This Weekend in MC Park, in Sunday School and Elementary Worship, your child will learn the story of Barnabas in Antioch.

Barnabas Encourages Christians in Antioch

You can review the story in
Acts 11:19-26. A great memory verse for your family this week is Hebrews 3:13 – “But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness”

Questions for review with your child:

1.    Have you ever had something sad or discouraging happen to you?
2.    Did anyone encourage you and make you feel better?
3.    How did that person encourage you?
4.    Why is encouragement important?
5.    How did Barnabas encourage the other Christians?
6.    How do you think Jesus feels when we encourage others?
7.    Why are encouraging words better from someone who has already gone through an obstacle you now face?
8.    Would you rather have others encourage you with their actions or words?
9.    How can we encourage each other as Friends?
10. Why does God want us to encourage on another?
11. How does it make you feel when you encourage someone?
