Welcome to our Young Adults! Here you’ll find all the resources you’ll need to have a great online worship experience right where you are!
Parents- This week we encourage you to:
- Watch the Online Experience video with your child.
- Use the Discussion Questions (see below) immediately following the video to unpack the story while it’s fresh!
- Use the Full Parent Guide and activity pages (linked below) for more activity ideas & deeper discussion.
Activity Pages: Use the page(s) that is most appropriate for your child
- Luke 17
How many men did Jesus heal of leprosy? (ten, Luke 17:17)
How many returned to praise Jesus and thank Him? (one, Luke 17:15-16)
Do you feel more like the man who thanked Jesus, or the nine who did not? Encourage your child to share their thoughts and try to answer honestly. Be prepared to share your own experience of times you honored God for His goodness and times you struggled to. Help kids to see that our sinful hearts often take God’s goodness for granted. We expect only good and forget that God can use hard times for His glory.
How do you show God you are thankful to Him? Guide your child to discuss the different ways we can give thanks to, glorify, and honor God. Help them see that we can worship God in our words and with our actions. Remind them that obedience to God, parents, and teachers is a great way to show God you trust and love Him. We can also show His love to others.
When might it be difficult to show God you love Him and are thankful? Help your child to see that during difficult times, such as when we are sick or in pain, we might find it difficult to see God’s work around us. Encourage kids that everything God does is for His glory and our good, even in the middle of difficult or sad circumstances.
Share: Jesus healed ten men, and one was thankful. The man who came back and thanked Jesus had faith and praised God for what He had done. We can praise God too.
Discuss the following questions about this week’s teaching.
