WHAT WE'RE LEARNING IN OCTOBER....

OCTOBER TEACHING SERIES OVERVIEW

ROAD TRIP!


Have you ever been on a road trip? When we think of road trips, we might think of gas station snacks, singing along to our favorite songs, and taking in the sights — but when the Israelites went on a "road trip" of their own through the wilderness, it was a little less glamorous. Okay, it was a lot less glamorous. In this series, we'll introduce kids to some of God's "rules of the road," from Moses and the ten commandments all the way to what Jesus called the Greatest Commandment — to love God and to love our neighbors as ourselves. Together, we'll discover that we can love God and others by putting God first, worshiping God, loving our families, and loving everyone.

GROW AT HOME | WEEK 4


ASK THIS

Because sometimes you and your kid need a conversation-starter that isn't, "So . . . how was church?


What commandments did you learn about today?


What does it mean to love your neighbor as yourself?


REMEMBER THIS

This month, your kids are memorizing the Bible verse Luke 10:27(NIV),in case you want to work on it together.

He answered, "Love the Lord God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and, Love your neighbor as yourself."


NEXT WEEK

Next week, we're starting a new series! Check your email for next month's monthly view of what's coming up.


PRAYER

Dear God, thank You for each person You’ve put in our lives to love. Help us to love others enough to respect their things, to tell the truth, and be happy for their blessings. Teach us each day to show our love for You through our love for others. Amen

REFLECTION | Love is the Law

It’s easy to say that you’re supposed to love everybody, but in real life, it’s really hard to do, especially if a person isn’t nice to you.

INSTRUCTIONS:Read Romans 13:8-10 aloud.Up until now, we have been thinking that each of the commandments is the law, but this Bible passage says that we are keeping the law when we love!Think about the laws of the road. 

Why do we stop at a red light? Is it so we won’t get a traffic ticket, or because it’s the safest thing to do? Both answers are correct, but most of all, it’s best to obey traffic rules because we want to be safe, not just to avoid getting in trouble.In the same way, God doesn’t want us to just keep these commandments because we’re forced to. God wants us to follow these rules because it’s how we best love God and others.
