Covid-19 has meant a lot of changes for how we can teach and encourage your kids! Please use the below resources to help your kids learn from God's Word while at home! There are also some great resources on parenting your kids through a pandemic. God bless you!
VIDEO LESSONS FOR THIS WEEK:
Click the below image to be taken to Parent Cue's Youtube Channel! Every Sunday morning at 8am, they add the new videos for that week. On the channel, the videos for ELEMENTARY, and PRE-TEENS (older elementary) follows our curriculum, so your child should at least try watching one of these. If you have preschool children, there are PRESCHOOL videos available as well, but they don't always follow the same lesson plan. They will still be super fun to watch for your kids though! Each video package includes some great dance-able worship songs for your kids to sing along with as well!
Also remember that every Saturday, we send out a KIDZONE email with some discussion questions included so that you can talk to your kids about what they learned! It's a really quick and easy way to help each week's lesson really sink in! Contact Pastor Ben at email@example.com to be added to the list!
For video content from previous weeks, visit STUDIO 252 to watch the animated stories, the So & So Show and more.
Kids can also watch older episodes of just the So & So Show on Youtube!
CLICK HERE for our Jump Up Worship playlist on Spotify that's full of great kids worship songs.
