Welcome to LifeSpring Kids At Home, a resource designed to fuel family discipleship in your home in partnership with what kids are learning at church. Each week you will be provided with new content that relates to what will be taught the coming Sunday in our LifeSpring Kids ministry.

Whether you have been discipling for years or are just getting started, LifeSpring Kids At Home is designed to give you a realistic, yet meaningful, starting point of one night a week family worship that you can build from by using additional content included here as well as by adding other resources.  

Choose a day and a time for a weekly family worship experience that allows your family to be as consistent as possible. Use these materials to engage in an experience that lasts about 10-15 minutes, or one that can be longer if you desire. All you need is LifeSpring Kids At Home and a Bible.

- TALK ABOUT THE SCRIPTURE -

 

On November 26, 2022, Nicholas Perri Jr., an off-duty firefighter, was enjoying his Saturday when he saw a car on fire with a woman inside. Nicholas sprang into action. He pulled the woman out of the vehicle and cared for her injuries until the ambulance arrived. Nicholas Perri Jr. risked his own life to do his job of saving another life. He was dedicated to the work he was called to do. 

 

On Paul’s third missionary journey, the Holy Spirit led him to go to Jerusalem. He knew that going to Jerusalem meant danger and trouble, but that didn’t stop Paul. Paul was uncertain of what would happen in Jerusalem, but he trusted in God who had called him to share the good news about Jesus.  

 

Paul was willing to risk his own life to tell others about Jesus—the One who offers eternal life! Jesus has commanded all His followers to continue telling others about Him. When we trust in Jesus, we receive a new mission, and we can have courage that God is with us as we work to tell others the good news about Jesus. 

 

As Paul traveled on his third missionary journey, he used every opportunity to tell people the good news about Jesus and to help the church. Paul was dedicated to Jesus, who called him to do the work of sharing the gospel.     

 

Pray: God, thank You for giving Paul the courage to tell others about Jesus. Help us to have the courage we need to share the gospel with others. Amen.

The prayer guide includes two prompts—one for mornings and one for evenings—that you can use during the week to help direct prayer and start casual family conversations about God.

Mornings

Ask God to give you the courage you need for today. How does time with God help us receive courage? How can we use that courage in sharing the good news about Jesus?     

 

Evenings

Thank God for His promise to never leave or forsake you. How does this promise help us to face hard times? How can we remind ourselves that God is with us wherever we go?

Two activities related to what your family is talking about are suggested each week. One activity is for your family to enjoy and the other is for your family to serve in some way as you live out the gospel in your community.  

For Fun

Look up different types of fears and phobias. Talk with kids about any fears they have in telling others about Jesus. If possible, give them encouraging Scriptures or advice on how to have courage in the work of sharing the gospel. 

To Serve

Bake cookies for your local fire or police department. Write a thank you note to the men and women who risk their lives to serve others. Talk with kids about what it means to have courage. Explain that telling others about Jesus is not always easy, but God gives the courage we need to keep sharing the gospel.
