Parents,

This Sunday, your kids will be learning about Noah and the ark. By the time Noah lived—10 generations after Adam—people had stopped following God. In fact, Scripture describes the terrible situation: “Man’s wickedness was widespread on the earth … every scheme his mind thought of was nothing but evil all the time” (Gen. 6:5). God was right to punish this sin. He decided to send a flood to cover the earth and destroy everything. God graciously chose to save one man and his family, so he warned Noah about the flood and told him to build an ark.

When the ark was complete, God’s judgment did come. The floodwaters covered the earth. Every living thing was destroyed, but Noah and his family were safe inside the ark. God rescued Noah’s family—the family His own Son would be born into. Jesus would warn of God’s coming judgment too, but instead of condemning the world, Jesus would give up His life to rescue sinners. Pray that the Lord would help you clearly communicate the gospel to your children. Pray that the Holy Spirit would lead them to receive Jesus, who rescues us from God’s anger toward sin. (1 Thess. 1:10)

Big Picture Question: What is sin? Sin is breaking God’s law.

We are very excited to partner with you to provide you the tools and resources to disciple your children into followers of Christ!!  Thank you for continuing this journey with us!!

 

Looking for help discipling your children?

Take a look at Seedlings, The Grove Church’s Kids Ministry!  We use The Gospel Project for Kids in order to partner with parents to make disciples and transform the hearts of their children.  Each week, children go chronologically through the Bible learning about Jesus.  When you pick up your children, you’ll receive an Activity Sheet and Card detailing what your child learned and tips and ideas on how to continue the conversation at home.  If you want to visit us with your children, you can go HERE and pre-register to make checking in your children much faster on Sunday.

We meet each Sunday at 9:30am for coffee and worship starts at 10:00am.
