Mid-week family resources: God’s love and justice

Hello Families,

As we lament, listen, and contemplate we know that many of you are considering ways to talk with your children about justice and injustice. As a starting point for these conversations, we have compiled a couple of resources for you. First, we have some Bible verses for you to read and discuss together concerning what the Bible says about love and about justice. In addition, in the link below, we have put together a playlist of book read-alouds for you and your family to listen & watch together (even though they are picture books, they can appeal to all ages). By no means is this an exhaustive list on the topic, just a place to start by listening to the Word of God and to some of the voices of authors and artists who have created some beautiful books.

Bible Verses (PDF)

May our words and actions reflect the love of God and Jesus Christ by the power of His Holy Spirit!

In Christ,
River West Kids Team

It’s time for Teacher Nicole to get out of bed!

Hi Families!

This week we have a fun music video to share with you! Mr. Greg and Teacher Nicole team up to share an original song, written by Mr. Greg!

Read and discuss this in your family church time this week:
Hebrews 12:1-3 (The Message) Discipline in a Long-Distance Race

”Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we’d better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!”

In this passage, Paul compares our life to a long race with a finish line at the end. Each day we have choices to make regarding how we will run the race. Mr. Greg’s song reminds us to get out of bed and run it well. Don’t wander around aimlessly or get distracted by temptations. Run with a purpose because you know what lies at the finish line.

Discuss these questions together:
What kind of race is this?
How do we run this race?
What can slow us down?
What can help us in this race?
What awaits us at “the finish line”?

To Ponder: When you look ahead to your day’s activities consider asking these questions: Does it help me run the race well? Does it help me run for Jesus?

Blessings,
River West Kids Team

On easter

We hope this weekend is special for your families as we all worship and celebrate our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Here are some resources that we hope you will find helpful. Most of the activities and crafts focus on the Cross and Resurrection stories, but we have a few that correspond to the “Woman at the Well” story which will match up with Pastor Adam’s sermon on Sunday.

NOTE: The Easter Activity Booklet below should be printed double-sided on two sheets of paper and then folded once down the middle to “nest” the pages together.
