Weekly Big God Story resources for parents:
For October 23rd
BEGINNER’S MINISTRY (birth-PreK)
In this week’s Big God Story-God Cares for Me (Manna in the Desert)
After leaving Egypt, Moses and the Israelites had a long road ahead of them. The people started complaining early in the journey. God heard their grumbling and told Moses He would send food from heaven. He also gave special instructions about taking only enough food for each day. When the people woke up, the ground was covered in manna. God cares for the needs of His people.
Blessing: Children, God loves you and takes care of you.
ILLUMINATE Spiritual Formation and ILLUMINATE (K-5th grade)
The Big God Story this Sunday – God Redeems (Joseph, Part 1)
God knew Joseph and had a plan all along for his life. Joseph knew God and chose to trust Him in the midst of many trials because He knew God was the One who could redeem his situation. God was faithful and redeemed Joseph’s life over and over again and turned it into something beautiful for His glory. God knows us too, and we can know Him!
God can redeem our lives—not just the difficult things we go through but also our hearts. What a great God!
Blessing: May you know that the God of Israel redeemed you. May you trust in God your Redeemer.
