Weekly Big God Story resources for parents:
For January 10th
BEGINNER’S MINISTRY (birth-PreK)
In this week’s Big God Story-Jesus Chooses us to Follow Him (Luke 5:1-11)
Jesus chooses us to follow Him and to tell all of our friends and family about Him. One way we can celebrate all of the exciting things about God is to worship Him.
ILLUMINATE (K-5th grade)
The Big God Story for Sunday is- God is Redeemer-Ruth and Naomi (Ruth 1-4)
The word redeem means “buy back.” In The Big God Story, Ruth and Naomi were left without husbands to take care of them, which, in biblical times, was a very scary situation. They barely had any money and gleaned in the fields for food. They needed someone to take care of them—to buy them back from their debt and redeem their situation. God led them to Boaz, who became their kinsman-redeemer and took care of them. God is Redeemer and He sent Jesus, who died and rose again, to pay the debt of our sin.
