John Pointed to Jesus
May 10, 2020
Unit 20, Session 3
Gospel Project Younger Kids (6+)
River City Youth (8+) Sermon Notes/ Gospel Project for Older Kids
This family worship time will be most valuable to your family if you preview the materials ahead of your planned family gathering so that you can assess what is appropriate engagement for the age of your kids.
In general a child's attention span is 3 to 5 minutes per year of a child's age for best engagement of their listening and comprehension.
Suggested outline of previewing material and Family worship time:
Parent: view How to use video- Plan your Family Worship time
Print/view Activity Pages: starter activity and coloring page/journal page
Watch: Bible Story video
Discussion: Blog questions/ Family Discussion on right side of the activity page; Also BIG Picture Question (Doctrine)
Prayer: Outline of suggested areas.
Unit 20/Session 3:
John Pointed to Jesus
Unit Verse: “He must increase, but I must decrease.” John 3:30 CSB
John Told People to Follow Jesus.
I would suggest that you first discuss what will be seen on the Bible Lesson video, then view the content together; last part of your discussion;
Preschool and age 5: Discussion
Why was John not angry that Jesus’ disciples were baptizing too?
How is the work God gave Jesus different than the work God gave John?
How can we make Jesus greater and ourselves less in our lives?
Ages 6 and older: Discussion: Activity Page Questions available.
Follow up with a three questions method
What did our Bible Story tell us about? (Facts)
What did you learn about yourself/humanity/character?(Lesson teaching)
How will you apply/tell others about what you learned? (application/main teaching called to action)
**Close your time in prayer**
Thank God for what you learned today.
Everyone shares one thing they are grateful to God for
and one thing they would like to ask God for.
Consider who else to pray for, especially those who don’t know Jesus.
