Candlewood Kids April and May Parent Guide for 5-6 Year Olds

Candlewood Kids 

Kindergarten/ First Grade class

Parent Guide: April and May 2024

 

The heart of Candlewood Church is that parents would be the main source of Biblical instruction in the life of their children. It is the desire of the Sunday School team to come alongside parents to support them and to spur them on in a parent’s pursuit to point their children towards the love of Christ. 

 

MEMORIZE

One way we would encourage parents to accomplish this is by encouraging memorization of the Bible- to help put God’s word in the child’s heart. Psalm 119: 11 says: “ I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”

 

TALK ABOUT GOD’S WORD AS YOU WALK ALONG THE WAY

Deuteronomy 6 is a powerful parenting verse that instructs parents to talk about God in the day to day activities:

4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.

 

Each week the kindergarten/first grade class will learn a story about a person from the Old Testament and will discuss a New Testament verse that illustrates the life of that person and ultimately points them towards Christ.  It is our desire to inform parents of what we are discussing in Sunday school, in the hopes that parents can talk about it throughout the week.
