KIDS ON SUNDAYS
Our current mini series is “THE LORD'S PRAYER”, so our weekly resources online will be centred around that. We look forward to seeing everyone again in person when it’s possible and hearing all about what you learn together as a family during this time!
SUNDAY 18 OCTOBER
“For Yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory, now and forever. Amen”
Revelation 4v11 “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honour and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”
So why does God deserve all the glory? He created us, me and you, and everything around us. Even things that are “man-made” think about where they come from, from things that God made. Paper? Comes from trees. Woolen clothes? Comes from the wool of a sheep. Glass cup? Comes from sand. TV? Everything in it comes from something “natural”. That is just a small example of how powerful and incredible God is!
And he loves when we give him the glory!
In the video, we hear that giving God glory can be done in different ways! It doesn’t have to be done through singing. God loves each of us and made us all to be different, so we can give him glory in different ways.
Take time now to say the Lord’s Prayer in full:
“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name
Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread
And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
For yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory, now and forever,
What a great way to end a prayer to God!
Amen is a way of saying “so let it be” or “it is true”. It is a way of saying you agree with what has been prayed and it also reminds us that God hears our prayers and always has everything under control.
This week, take time as a family to pray together, explaining to your children what prayer is and who God is. Focus on giving God thanks for things. This is particularly important at this time when things are strange, focus on things that you are thankful for.
Allow for your child(ren) to ask any questions they may have about the story or the Bible or God.
Megaphones are used to shout out loudly and to share a message with others. We want to share the message of Jesus with everyone, and we want to shout our praises to God.
To make these megaphones, use scissors to cut out the bottom of a paper cup, or roll a piece of paper or card into a cone. The bottom part is the mouthpiece of these megaphones.
Decorate the megaphone using markers, crayons, paints, stickers, etc.
Get the kids to repeat the Lord’s prayer through their megaphone.
