As you come to learn about God today, get out your Bibles and read together. Then watch these Kid videos below. Bible video 1 and 2 are most appropriate for 4 year olds through 1st grade. Bible video 3 is geared for 2nd-5th graders.
For Preschoolers through 1st grade:
1. Watch Bible videos 1 and 2 above.
2. Who was Nehemiah? Why did he want to go back to Jerusalem?
3. When he got there, what did he do?
4. Ezra also plays a big part of this story of the return of God’s people to Jerusalem. What did Ezra do?
5. How did the people respond when Ezra read God’s law aloud to them?
6. Have you ever been excited and happy to read or listen to God’s Word, the Bible? Which is your favorite Bible story? What did it teach you about WHO GOD is?
7. Print out the activity sheets and complete them. Remember, God’s Word is His very voice speaking to us. Our children will grow to love Him as they listen to His word and hear about His character. Let’s read together daily!
For 2nd-5th graders:
1. You can find this Bible story in the Old Testament in the book of Nehemiah 8:1-18. Locate it in your Bibles and read the account of the return of God’s people from exile in Babylon to their home in Jerusalem. Watch video 3.
2.Why did Nehemiah want to return to Jerusalem? What was his work there?
3.What did Ezra do when he found the book of the Law? How did the people respond?
4. God’s Word is still important for us to read today. Do you have your own Bible? Do you read it every day? What things could help you remember to read God’s Word daily?
6. Dig deeper:– God uses his word to reveal Himself to us and to teach us how to live well and bring Him glory and honor through what we do. But that starts with faith. Read John 3:16. Have you believed in Jesus as your Savior?
7. Make a plan or checklist to read the first chapter of the gospel of John this week.
Each Tuesday we read the same Bible story to Preschoolers on Instagram. Follow us on Instagram at fcc_kidmin.
