Parent Connections – fpKids


Preschool  (2yrs to PreK)

This weekend we’ll focus your child on how God can help us do anything.  Our story comes from 1 Samuel 17:34-37.  David did some brave things even as a young boy.  His job as a shepherd required him to protect his sheep from predators like bears or lions.  Yet David proved a willingness to face these scary circumstances with uncanny bravery.  Because his bravery was not founded in his own ability but in God’s.  We want your preschooler to know today that God can help them do anything.

Make it Personal this weekend and read the story in 1 Samuel 17:34-37.  How does this truth impact you?  What circumstance are you in right now that you need God to help you through?

Create a Rhythm by using your drive time to teach your preschooler the answer to the question, “Who can help you?”  God Can Help Me Do Anything!


Elementary (K to 3rd grade)

Knowledge is discovering something new so you can be better at whatever you do.  Knowledge is a popular thing today.  We all want knowledge.  The challenge for us as parents is… WHAT do we need to know?

Knowledge is a great virtue.  But for the limited amount of time we have to teach our kids, we want to focus our time on the things that are most important.  If we stop for a moment and Imagine the End, a great question to ask ourselves is, “What’s most important for my child to know?”

In Luke 2:52 says Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.

When it comes to the topic of Knowledge, we want our kids to grown in these areas.  To grow in Faith, in Wisdom and in Friendship.  We simply want our kids to know what Jesus knew so they can grow as Jesus grew.

This weekend Make It Personal by reading the scripture focus for this weekend.  Be prepared for the conversation on the drive home.  Read Luke 2:41-52.  Since God knows everything, we want to discover what God says.


Club 45 (4th & 5th grade)

This week we’re focusing on living out your faith.  Jesus tells us in  Luke 14:25-27 that in order to be a disciple of Christ, our lives must look different.  And that can be tough.  We’re focusing your 4th & 5th grader on what this scripture actually means in their lives. 

Take a moment and Make It Personal.  After reading Luke 14:25-27, consider what that looks like in your own life.  Be prepared to take some time on the drive home this weekend and talk about the realities of taking up our cross and follow Christ.
