ReNEWed YEAR!

Key Verse: “For the Son of Man came to seek, and to save what was lost”

(Luke 19:10)

Our hope is for our kids to know that: Jesus did miracles to show us He is God

Read:
(Open the bible and read to your child John 2:1-11) Jesus and his disciples were invited to a wedding in Galilee. In those days weddings were really a huge occasion, larger than how we celebrate weddings today. One of the things that were expected at weddings was the supply of wine for the entire time of the celebration. When the wine ran out, Mary (who was likely serving at the wedding) asked Jesus to get more wine. She was obviously asking for a miracle, because she knew who he was. Jesus explained to her that it was not his time to reveal who he was, however he proceeded to tell the servants to fill large jugs with water and then draw some out to take to the master of the banquet. When he tasted the drink, it was no longer water, but some of the best wine he has ever tasted! Jesus had performed his first miracle!

Share:
(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents: Tell about a time you needed a miracle. What was the situation? How did it work out? Did your faith grow or diminish as a result? Then as a family, ask Jesus to make you aware of his miraculous presence and work in your life and in the world around you each day this week. Praise him each time you recognize his hands at work.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
One night during supper, talk with your family about times God has helped you. Let each family member tell about a time God helped him or her, and have someone else write the story down in a family journal. Each week, repeat the process and add new stories to the journal. In a month or two, have a family party to read the journal and celebrate how God has helped your family.
