Jesus Saving Time

Key Verse: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”
(John 3:16)

Our hope is for our kids to know that: God meets our needs

Read:
(Open the bible and read to your child John 6:1-15) After Jesus spent time teaching the crowds they followed him up on the mountainside. It was time for a meal, so they were perplexed on how they were going to feed the crowd which consisted of ten to fifteen thousand people if you count women and children. One boy had a lunch that was provided for him, a few pieces of bread and two small fish. Jesus was able to use the lunch to feed the entire crowd. This showed the disciples and all those around that Jesus could provide all of our needs!  

Share:
(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents: Talk about a time your family had a specific need and you saw God provide for you. Maybe God provided necessary food through a meal from a friend. Or perhaps God provided money for a bill through an unexpected bonus at work. Encourage your kids to think of other examples of when they saw God’s provision in their lives. Then ask your children to share needs they have right now, and pray together that God will provide according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
Get together with your family this week and have each person draw a picture of their trust level for God to meet his or her needs. For example, if a family member has deep trust in God, he or she could draw a picture of hugging God. Or if a family member feels far away, he or she could draw God on one side of the paper and himself or herself at the other end. Then talk about how each person got to that trust level and what, if anything needs to change.
