Parent Resources (Sunday)
Past Units: Gospel Project for Kids Archive
Current Unit: Hope In Exile
After years of living in sin, God’s people were sent into exile. The Southern Kingdom of Judah was captured by Babylon. Daniel’s visions of the future showed that God is in control at all times. God used faithful people to continue His plan to provide salvation through Jesus.
Big Picture Question
Why do we pray? We pray because we trust God, and we know He hears us.
- "Pray constantly, give thanks in everything." 1 Thessalonians 5:17-18a
- Pray constantly (make praying hands in front of your trunk)
- Give thanks in everything (point toward your head and then pretend like you're tipping a hat)
