LESSON 1: GODLY GUIDANCE SYSTEM

Isn’t GPS a great thing? It amazes me that a satellite high above the earth can see me, and when combined with digital mapping software, can tell me how to get from point A to B in the quickest way possible. It amazes me even more to consider that this system can see if there is heavy traffic or an accident along my route and re-direct me around it. If I take a wrong turn, it quickly notifies me. “Rerouting.” But as amazing as this system is, it is only as good as its underlying data.

ABOUT FAMILY QUEST: At Reston Bible Church, we firmly believe that parents are a child’s first and most important spiritual leader.  In order to support you that mission, we have created a parent devotional and some discussion starters to go along with each lesson your grade school age children are learning at Quest on Sundays. Our hope and prayer is that this material will help you to engage with your children around the topics they are learning on Sunday mornings, answer their questions, go deeper with them, and find real, day-to-day applications. We are honored to be able to partner with you in the critical task of sharing Christ with the next generation.

BABY QUEST: March Lessons

Baby QUEST is Reston Bible Church’s ministry to the youngest members of our Body.

Each month, we will feature a guide for your family to use with children ages 0-2. The guide includes follow up activities, a craft or sensory activity, recommended reading, a song, and other tips that are uniquely tailored to the development of infants and toddlers.

The guide follows the themes we are teaching in our nursery classes, giving you an opportunity to connect and reinforce the ideas taught at home. Because children this age need repetition, each activity can be done multiple times throughout the month to continue to press it upon your child’s memory as they grow!

This month, we’re focusing on the story of Jesus and the storm. Children will love interacting with this story! They will learn about God’s power over all things, including things that are very dramatic and mysterious to young children-wind and rain! They will be introduced to the safety they have in God and will be guided in thanking God for His power and protection.

Big Idea:
God is Powerful!

Scripture Focus:
Mark 4

This month, we’re focusing on the story of Daniel and the lion’s den. Children love this story! They are engrossed by the drama of Daniel and the wild, scary lions–but most importantly, the story teaches them many truths, including about God’s power, strength, and protection. We will especially focus on Daniel’s prayers to God and talk about how we can talk to God too. Children will be introduced to prayer, prayed for, and guided to join in prayer on their own.

Big Idea:
We can pray to God!

Scripture Focus:
Daniel 6

Free Climbing, LESSON 2: Victory Over Sin – Anatomy of Temptation

family-quest-the-rockHelping our children understand the nature of temptation is an important step toward demystifying it and overcoming it using Biblical principles empowered by God’s Spirit. When preparing to face an opponent, whether in athletic endeavors, war, or any other arena, we should study their tactics. From which direction will they come? A close study of scripture reveals to us the sources of temptation.

It begins with a carnal thought pattern.
