Welcome to Family Devos!
Our goal is to support parents in the spiritual discipleship of their children!
Below you'll find helpful insight about what your child is learning at church, discussion questions to help continue
the conversation at home, and ideas that will help cement these biblical concepts for your family!
THE CHRISTMAS STORY
Christmas is the season for many things: to rock around the Christmas tree, to be merry, and to jingle jingle all the way home to family and friends. But Christmas is also the season to remember that we were Chosen. Starting with Abraham, God chose to love us, has a special purpose for us, desires for us to find grace and salvation through His Son Jesus, and wants us to follow Him for the rest of our lives. The Christmas story reveals more than just the coming Messiah; it reveals that we were CHOSEN — Chosen to Love, Chosen to Lead, Chosen to Find, and Chosen to Follow.
CHOSEN TOO - WEEK 1
🎉 THIS WEEK
This week, kids heard the story of the angel visiting Mary.
THE BIG IDEA: God chose to love us by sending us Jesus.
THE BIBLE: Luke 1:26-38 (Genesis 12:1-3)
💬 ASK THIS
Because sometimes you and your kid need a conversation-starter that isn't "So . . . how was church?"
Why did the angel visit Mary? (To announce that she would give birth to God's son, Jesus)
Why did Mary choose to obey God? (She loved God and recognized herself as God's servant)
What does God want us to choose to do about the news of Jesus loving us? (He wants us to choose to love Jesus back!)
Who can we choose to love like how God chose to love us?
🧠 REMEMBER THIS
This month, your kids are memorizing the Bible verses 1 Corinthians 1:9 in case you want to work on them together!
➡️ NEXT WEEK
Next week, your child will hear the story of the angel visiting Joseph.
THE BIG IDEA: God has chosen each of us for a special purpose to serve Him.
THE BIBLE: Matthew 1:18-24 (Jeremiah 1:5a, Proverbs 3:5-6)
