Parent Connections – fpKIDS


Here’s what you can expect for your child this weekend in fpKIDS…

Preschool (2yrs to PreK)

I can help others!

We continue our journey through God’s Word as we see how God used people like Aaron to help Moses (Exodus 17:8-13); how police officer’s help us today and how we can help each other.  We’re discovering practical examples in the Bible of how God made us to “live out” what we believe by being who He created us to be.

This weekend, Create a Rhythm in your weekly routine by asking each other the question, “How can I help you?”  Use this as a way to show your preschooler how God made us to help each other.

Elementary (K thru 3rd grade)

This week, we’re discovering the wisdom of being patient (Proverbs 14:29). A person who gets angry quickly often ends up looking foolish, but a person who is patient takes the time to make wise choices.

Our Bottom Line is…

When you think you can’t wait, don’t lose your cool.

We can work hard to keep control of our words, actions, and attitude while we wait. That way we can avoid doing something we might regret. In fact, we might even use the time while we’re waiting to do something helpful or productive.

This week, Create a Rhythm, by helping your student lock in the monthly memory verse.

“Wait for the Lord. Be strong and don’t lose hope. Wait for the Lord.

Psalm 27:14, NIrV

When our words, actions, and attitudes honor God while we wait, we show we trust Him and the people He’s put in charge. Remembering that trust will help us be strong even when we don’t understand why we’re waiting.

Club 45 (4th & 5th grade)

There’s an App for That: Instagram

This week we unpack how bad decisions are like bad photos.  They can’t be erased or undone.  But we can reduce our bad “pictures” by learning to slow down and pray when faced with making tough choices in an instant.

This week, Make it Personal, by exploring these truths in your own life as a parent/adult.  Read Matthew 4:18-20 & Luke 22:54-62 .  Place yourself in Peter’s shoes and explore how much you wish you could reverse the choice that was made.  As our tweens get older they will make more and more decisions that have lasting implications.  Help your tween learn how to slow down, seek God and make a wise choice.
