Children’s Ministry (FamilyConnect, Jan. 4)

John Baptizes Jesus

We learned this week that God sent Jesus to earth because of his great love for us (Mark 1:4-11). When we believe in Jesus, we can live with God for all eternity. Strengthen your family’s faith learning and growth at home with this easy idea:

Parents
Tell your children about your great love for them. Talk about how you felt the first time you saw each child. Let your children know how much you value each of them individually, and share some things that make them uniquely special to you. Then talk about how much greater God’s love is. God loves each of us so much that he sent his one and only Son to die for us so we can live with him forever. Encourage your children to let you know when they want to begin a relationship with Jesus―if they haven’t done so yet.
