Elementary Lesson October 22nd – God is the One True GodExodus 19-20 (Mt. Sinai and the Ten Commandments) 

God is leading His people to the Promised Land, and asks them to stop at the foot of Mt. Sinai. It is here that God makes a covenant with His people. He shows them the best ways to live and that He is the one true God. 

The Israelites had just left Egypt where the people worshipped thousands of false gods. God made things very simple for His people and told them that there is no other god, but Him. He is the one true God. This became the first commandment. God gave His people nine other commandments to help them live in relationship with God and with one another. 

God chose His people, rescued them and set them apart to worship Him. He does the same for us today!

Elementary Verse for October-Proverbs 3:5-6

 

Preschool Lesson for October 22nd – God’s Care is Wonderful Exodus 16 (Manna & Quail in the Desert) 

God’s people have left Egypt on their way to the Promised Land, and now find themselves in the desert without food or water. How do they respond? They complain. Sound familiar? 

We serve a God who loves and cares for us in amazing ways! God shows this to His people be sending special bread and meat to feed them. God’s care truly is wonderful! 

How has God shown His care for you and your family? Talk about this together and celebrate God’s wonderful care. Going through a hard time? Instead of complaining like the Israelites, bring your situation to God and watch Him answer.

Preschool Verse for October – Proverbs 3:5

 

2 Year Olds – God Cares for Me (Exodus 16; Number 11:7-9))
Foundational Truth: God Made Me

A month into their journey to the Promised Land, God’s people ran out of food. Instead of trusting God to take care of them, they started to complain and wish they could go back to Egypt 

God had a plan to take care of them in an amazing way. He sent bread from heaven and birds to feed them! God reminded them every day that He would take care of them. He will take care of us too!

Hey everyone! Hope you're all having a fantastic week. 

On Wednesday, Quest 56 will continue it's study of Spiritual Gifts. I hope you all got a chance to work through the "Parent's Page" I handed out to you after Quest 56 last week :) This week we're looking at the gift of exhortation! We're going to be diving into the Word to see what the Bible says about each of these gifts. Be sure to pick up this week's "Parent's Page" before the end of the night!
 
And on Sunday we'll be looking at the next parable on our journey through Jesus' parables. Next up is the Parable of the Two Sons. We will be discussing the parable together and will talk about respect for others and the phrase "actions speak louder than words." Be sure to ask your kids about Kid President and how to change the world!

Elementary Lesson October 15th – God is Provider
Exodus 15:22-17:7 (God provides water & manna in the wilderness) 

This past week we discussed how God rescued His people from Egypt, and now He is leading them to the land He has promised. They’ve got quite a journey ahead! 

God knew exactly what the people would need along this journey—just as He knows what we will need on our daily journey. This week we’ll talk about the way He provided just what they needed at just the right time. 

How about you? How has God provided for you and/or your family recently? He knows our needs but wants us to come to Him. What a comfort knowing that He sees and He provides!

Elementary Verse for October-Proverbs 3:5-6


 

Preschool Lesson for October 15th – God is the One True God
Exodus 3-12; 13:17; 15 (Moses & Pharaoh, parting of the Red Sea) 

This past week we met Moses, a baby who God chose and rescued to do His work. This week we’ll learn about God’s call to Moses (from a burning bush, no less!), and how God used Moses to show Pharaoh and the entire Egyptian people that He is the one true God. 

God is still the one true God today! How are you seeing Him and experiencing His work in your family this week? 

Be sure to check out the discussion starters in the At Home Weekly.   

Preschool Verse for October – Proverbs 3:5


 

2 Year Olds – God is Mighty (Exodus 14:13-15:21)
Foundational Truth: God Made Me

God is going to show that He is mighty to the king of Egypt (Pharaoh) and his people by doing many incredible things. God is also going to lead His people on a trip to a very special land. God is going to protect His people and show them He is mighty every step of the way.

Hello everyone! 

I hope your week is going great. It was nice of summer to return this week!  

On Wednesday, Quest 56 will continue it's study of Spiritual Gifts. I hope you all got a chance to work through the "Parent's Page" I handed out to you after Quest 56 last week on the gifts of tongues and miracles. This week we're looking at the gifts of help and service! We're going to be diving into the Word to see what the Bible says about each of these gifts as well as putting some service into practice by helping out one of our ministries here at Oakwood. Be sure to pick up this week's "Parent's Page" before the end of the night!
 
And on Sunday we'll be looking at the next parable on our journey through Jesus' parables. Next up is the Parable of the Vineyard Workers. We will be discussing the parable and walking through why life isn't fair sometimes. This parable has great application in, literally, every day life and how we compare ourselves and situations to others.
