PARENT GUIDE for Jan.10/16

GOSPEL PROJECT: Unit 4, Session 1: Moses Was Born and Called (Preschoolers-Gr.4)

Dear Parents,

This week, we continue our journey through the Bible using The Gospel Project® for Kids and will learn about Moses’ birth and calling. Moses was chosen by God to help deliver God’s people out of Egypt. When God’s people cried out to God, He responded and miraculously rescued them from physical captivity. Jesus was a greater Deliverer because He rescued God’s people from captivity to sin.

Help your children connect the Exodus back to Joseph bringing His family into Egypt and forward to Jesus rescuing God’s people from sin.

FLYTE: Pre-Teen Curriculum: Volume 5- Perspective (Gr.5-6)

Dear Parent,

Do you see things from a different point of view than your preteen? Of course you do. God also sees things from a different perspective than the rest of the world. Christians should develop a point-of-view or perspective that matches God’s and not the world’s.

Over the next four weeks, your preteen will be exploring the idea of perspective through the LifeWay Preteens FLYTE curriculum. Specifically, we’ll be attempting to answer several questions about the topic:

Session 1: What Do I Believe About My World?
Bible passage: Genesis1:1–2:3

Session 2: Is There Absolute Truth?Bible passage: John 17:6-19

Session 3: How Did I Get Here?
Bible passage: Genesis 1:26–2:25; Jeremiah 1:5

Session 4: How Do I Value People with Other Beliefs?
Bible passage: John 4:1-42

The purpose of these lessons is to lead your preteen to explore how God feels about the subjects covered? Preteens will explore the concepts of absolute truth and creation. Modern science encourages people to disregard the biblical accounts of creation. This study will help preteens know that the Bible teaches truth.

I would encourage you to help your preteen memorize Psalm 139:13-16 during this unit. Be prepared to discuss with your family why developing a biblical worldview is important. Help your preteen know that he or she should commit to believing in the truth of who God is.
