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:
- Watch the Intro Video. After the video, click the BACK button in your browser to return to the main menu, or swipe left on your iPhone.
- Get the Downloads at the top right of this page: Print out the Activity Page and One Conversation Guide.
- Gather your Family around your computer or mobile device. Open your Bible to the scripture passage on the One Conversation page.
- Watch the Video portion together as a family.
- Talk About the Story and the topic of the week with your family. Ask open-ended questions. Share your insights and encourage your kids to talk.

Unit 2: Session 1/ The Crowd Welcomed Jesus (Matthew 21:1-11)
Unit Verse: “God loved us and sent His Son.” 1 John 4:10
(Recite the tune of London Bridges)
Main Life Point: God sent Jesus because He loves us.
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
Who sent Jesus to earth because He loved us? (God, He sent His Son.)
What did the people say when the saw Jesus on the donkey? (Hosanna, Hosanna)
Hosanna; Means “Save us!” “Praise God”- Proclaiming a New Salvation
Who gave everything because He loved us? (Jesus, God’s son who died on the cross for our sin so that we can be God’s friend.)
Ages 6 and older: Discussion
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 thanking God for all that He has given in love and Grace.
