How to Disciple This Week

Step 1 Keep leading your children throughout the week with our takehome and online materials. Start your time together by praying as a family. Let your children know that you're entering into a time of worship and are seeking the Lord's help in understanding what He will reveal in His Word.


Step 2 Use the videos and teaching prompts to guide your children through the lesson. It is helpful for children to practice holding the Bible, looking up the Scripture, and reading or hearing you read directly from the Bible.  


Step 3 Continue the learning with the age-specific Handout. Throughout your week, the lesson can be reinforced and applied around the dinner table, in the car, and as you do the page's creative activities, questions, the Christ Connection main idea, and family activities. 

Step 4 Continue to regularly share the Gospel with your children. This is a very useful primer on HOW TO PRESENT THE GOSPEL TO A CHILD
