Church At Home Guide

Church at Home Guide

Since we’re all at home this weekend, we wanted to give you the chance to have church with your kids! This guide has questions and activities to help your kids learn more about God, right from your home. 

  • Preschool

    Discussion Questions
    • How did Jesus show love in our Bible Adventure?
      (Forgiving and helping others)
    • Who are some people we could show kindness and love
      (Our grown-ups, friends, brothers, and sisters)
    • How could we be kind or loving this week?
      (Sharing, giving gifts, using kind words)
    Hands-On Activity

    Think of different people you’ll see or talk to this week. Will you call a family member or a friend? What about the people in your home? Get a piece of paper and draw each of those people. Talk about a way you could show love to them!

    The Point

    Jesus loves every person in the world! When we forgive, help, and care about others, we are sharing Jesus’ love.

    Discussion Questions

    Who was kind to Saul in our Bible Adventure? (Barnabas)
    What are some kind and gentle things we can say? (You’re great!, I’m glad you’re my friend., Great job!)

    Hands-On Activity

    Give each person a building block and have them carefully place them on top of each other. See how high you can build the tower before it falls!

    That time, you were very gentle with your blocks. Now try building the tower again, as fast as you can, without trying to be gentle.

    What happened?

    The Point

    Being kind and gentle with our words and the things we do is an important part of being a good friend and family member. When we were gentle, we could stack a lot more blocks on top of each other. Being kind and gentle to others helps us be good friends to them.

    I Like To Praise the Lord Every Day

    March 28/29

    Discussion Questions
    • How did Paul and Silas show they had joy in our Bible Adventure? (They sang about God)
    • When is a time you’ve felt joyful or happy?
    Hands-On Activity

    Listen to our Kid-O-Deo songs or other worship songs. Sing and dance about how amazing God is.

    Kid-O-Deo Songs

    The Point

    Joy is like happiness, but joy never ends. We have joy because God loves us so very much and his love never ends. That’s why Paul and Silas praised God, even when their lives were tough. We can always have joy because of God’s love.

    Questions To Talk About
    • What is something God made you good at? How could you use that to show others who God is, and share his love?
    • What might God's purpose be for us right now? How could we do good things for him right where we are?
    • Is there anything you would like God's help with right now?
    Have Some Fun!

    Read 2 Timothy 1:9. God chose us with a purpose, not because of anything we've done, but just because he loves us. God made this whole world, including all of us! He knows so much more than we do, so sometimes, he does things that don't make sense to us.

    Look at each of the close-up images and try to guess what is in the picture!

    PLAY THE GUESSING GAME

    Talk About It

    Do you think we can see all of God's purpose for us or just a bit at a time? How is that like these pictures?
    (We can only see a small piece of the pictures like we can only see a small part of our lives, but God sees it all.)

    March 21/22

    Questions to Talk About:
      • Bowie and Gabby were arguing, but neither of them was totally right or wrong. Have you ever had an argument like that?
    • What are some things you think are the most important? (You could talk about following Jesus and believing in God.)
    • What are some important things that people disagree about? (You could talk about how causes, like the environment, or political problems are super important, but it’s okay for people to have different opinions and solutions to those problems.)
    • What are some things we might argue about that are less important? (Sports teams, favorite music)
    • Is there an argument you’ve been having with someone that you could let go of today?
    Get Moving!

    Set a basket about five feet away. Have each person take a regular piece of paper and come up with as many ways as you can to get the paper into the basket. You could crumple it and toss it. You could fold it into a paper airplane. What other ways can you try?

    The Point

    It’s good that we all see things a little differently. It’s part of how God made us! Sometimes we disagree with other people because we see things differently than they do. The important thing is: we can disagree with someone and still be friends with that person.

    Heartbeat Movin’ Me

    March 28/29

    Have Some Fun! 

    Play the game “What’s Inside?” Find a box that you can’t see through. Put something inside, and see if your family can guess what’s in the box, just by shaking it. (Make sure you choose things that can’t break!)

    Questions to Talk About: 
    • Why do you think Bowie and Jesse did annoying and dangerous things for their show? (They’re acting like the shows they watched.)
    • Have you ever wanted to have or do something because of a show you watched? 
    • What are some things you think would be good to fill your heart with? (Good shows and music, verses from the Bible.) 
    Get Moving! 

    Pour water into two different cups. Then, stir a little spoonful of dirt into one of the cups. Can you tell the difference? 

    The water is like good things that we watch and listen to. They help us learn, be kind to others, and become who God made us to be. But some things aren’t good to watch. Just a little bit of dirt, like bad language or hurtful actions, can turn even something good into something hurtful.

    Think about this: If you keep on filling these cups until they overflow, what will come out of them? Good water will come out of the one with clean water. But the one with dirt would overflow with dirty water. It’s like that with us, too. What we watch and listen to comes out of us and affects our words, the things we do, and the people around us. 

    The Point

    The things we watch and listen to affect us. They change what we think about and what we do. That’s why it’s so important to choose what we think about, what fills our minds, our hearts, and our lives.
