SHINE Weekly Update // 04.30.15
Welcome to your weekly update for SHINE, the Children's Ministry of First Presbyterian Church of Orlando.
Register for VBS!
THE BIG DIG: Vacation Bible School 2015
July 20-24, 9:00am-12:15pm | $50 per child
Register online now through June 28 (first come, first served).
Children must be 4 by August 31, 2015 through entering 5th grade in the 2015-16 school year.
We can't run VBS without volunteers! Lots of spots available at fpco.org/vbs. Specifically, we're in need of pre-K small group guides. We're expecting a large crowd of pre-K children who need an adult guide to help them through the VBS experience. If you're interested, fill out the adult volunteer registration at fpco.org/vbs.
SUNDAY CAR TALK
Questions to ask your children on the way home...
PRE-K - KINDERGARTEN
- 1. Who learned to believe in Jesus and helped Paul a lot in prison? (Onesimus; Philemon 1:10-13)
- Why was Onesimus in trouble? (He had run away from his owner and possibly stolen from him; Philemon 1:11, 15-18)
- Who was the rich, Christian friend who owned Onesimus? (Philemon; Philemon 1:1, 5, 7)
- What did Paul want Philemon to do for Onesimus? (Forgive him and welcome him as a brother, not a slave; Philemon 1:15-18)
- What did Jesus do for us? (Forgave us, and welcomed us as brothers and sisters into Heaven with Him; Galatians 4:7)
1ST - 4TH GRADE
Big Picture Question: How could Isaiah stand before God? (Isaiah could stand before God because God took away Isaiah’s sin.)
- What does the name Isaiah mean? (“The Lord saves”)
- What did Isaiah see in the vision God gave him? (He saw God sitting on the throne with a long robe, and seraphim surrounded Him; Isaiah 6:1-3)
- What did Isaiah say when he realized he was in the presence of God? (I am ruined! I am a sinner. I have seen God; Isaiah 6:5)
- What did one of the seraphim tell Isaiah when he touched a burning coal to Isaiah’s lips? (Your sin is removed; Isaiah 6:7)
- What question did God ask, and how did Isaiah respond? (God asked, “Who should I send? Who will go for Us?” Isaiah replied, “Here I am. Send me”; Isaiah 6:8)
- What happens when we trust in Jesus? (God forgives our sins and sends us to tell others about Jesus.)
Christ Connection: Isaiah saw God in a vision and he knew he didn't deserve to be with God because God is holy. God forgave Isaiah’s sin. One day God would send His Son, Jesus, to pay for Isaiah’s sin. God forgives anyone who trusts in Jesus. When we trust in Jesus, we answer like Isaiah: “Here I am. Send me.”
