For adults, today was all about gathering as a team, hearing why we fight and turning to face our King. For kids, it was all about what it means to follow Jesus and obey him, individually and as a team. Ask your kids, “What does it mean to follow Jesus?” What does Jesus ask us to do?
Nehemiah followed God, but God’s enemies tried to make it hard for him. Watch this video to see what they did. Then ask: How did God help Nehemiah?
What are some things that make it hard for us to follow Jesus? How does God help us? (If your kid is in kindergarten through fifth grade, they saw the video below about the special armor God gives us.)
What can happen when we follow Jesus together, as a team?
Adults watched this video about flipping our city. If your kids are old enough, watch it as a family and talk about it: what does it mean to flip a city? How can we be a part of that? Then pray for our city as a family.
