What is Your Child Learning This Month?

In Cornerstone's Children's Ministry we want children to have fun and make friends, but effectively sharing God's Word with your child is our highest priority.   Currently, we are in a series that takes your child through the Bible in one year.  To view the entire scope and sequence follow this link, but to see what your child is learning this month, consider the information below.  Let us know if you have any questions, as we are committed to partnering with parents in the discipleship of their children.  Enjoy!

    An Angel Announces Jesus' Birth

    Luke 1:26-38


    Learning Target: I know God does the impossible.


    In this lesson we learned that God sends an angel to tell Mary and Joseph about Jesus’ upcoming birth. God gives a lot of specific details, and many of them seemed impossible. But God does the impossible! Jesus was born just as God said he would be.


    Family Together Time

    Here’s an activity you can do throughout the week—over dinner or in the car. Play a variation of the game of “I Spy” with things that demonstrate doing the impossible.

    • Have someone look around, secretly choose an object, and say something that would be impossible to do using that object. For example, it would be impossible to eat soup with a key.
    • Everyone else will ask yes or no questions to identify the item.
    • When someone guesses the item, everyone will try to think of ways God could do the impossible with that item (without being silly).
    Talk About This
    What’s something in your life that feels impossible?
    What do you believe God could do about that?
    Explain whether or not it’s easy for you to believe God can do anything.

    Jesus is Born

    Luke 2:1-20


    Learning Target: I know that Jesus is the light of the world.


    In this passage we read that on the night Jesus is born, light breaks through the darkness. It’s a dark time for Israel and a dark night in the shepherds’ fields, but angels light up the night sky and proclaim God’s glory and that Jesus is the light of the world.


    Family Together Time

    Wait to do this activity until it’s dark outside.

    • Have each person choose a task from his or her chore or to-do list.
    • Turn off all the lights, and have everyone try to accomplish their task.
    • Turn the lights back on after a bit, and complete the tasks.
    • Come back together and discuss these questions: What was it like to try to do your task in the dark?  Why do you need the light to do certain things?  Why do you need Jesus’ light to shine on you?

    Talk About This

    What are some ways Jesus is like light?

    Share about ways you showed God’s light this week.

    Simeon and Anna See Jesus

    Luke 2:21-40


    Learning Target: I know Jesus is God's gift.


    In this lesson we read that Mary and Joseph bring Jesus to the Temple to dedicate him. While there, they meet Simeon and Anna, who have been waiting and waiting for God’s gift of the Messiah. They praise and thank God that Jesus is God’s gift.


    Family Together Time

    Here’s an activity you can do throughout the week.

    • Get a gift bag and put a small present inside. It could be as simple as a snack, a sticker, a nice note, or a handmade item.
    • Pass the gift on to someone in your family.
    • When someone gets the gift, he or she will thank the person who gave the gift and will then put a new gift in the bag and pass it on to someone else.
    • At the end of the week, talk about how nice it was to receive gifts throughout the week and what a great gift Jesus is.

    Talk About This

    How do you decide what would be a good gift for someone?

    When have you given a gift you knew the recipient would love?

    What makes Jesus a good gift?

    Wise Men Worship King Jesus

    Matthew 2:1-18


    Learning Target: I know Jesus is the King.


    In this lesson we read that a group of wise men who’ve studied the stars notice an unusual star and follow it, looking for the newborn king that had caused the star to rise. When the wise men find Jesus, they worship him because Jesus is the king. Hearing of this, King Herod wants to kill Jesus, but God leads both the wise men and Jesus’ family to keep Jesus safe.


    Family Together Time

    Here’s an activity you can do throughout the week.

    1. Stop and pick up any coins you find, no matter how busy you are.
    2. Look through your car, couch cushions, or other places you might find change.
    3. Collect all the change in a jar.
    4. Consider if there are any normal purchases you can skip this week, and use the jar to save the money you would have spent on those things.
    5. At the end of the week, discuss how you can use that money to worship your king, and give it as a gift to him.

    Talk About This

    Jesus Speaks With the Religious Teachers

    Luke 2:41-52


    Learning Target: I know Jesus is wise.


    In this lesson we read that at age 12, Jesus is at the Temple for a festival and gets lost. His parents look for him for three days and find him in the Temple, wowing the people there because Jesus is wise. After he returns home, he continues to grow in wisdom.


    Family Together Time

    Here’s an activity you can do throughout the week.

    1. Talk about choices each person made that day that required wisdom. For example, maybe one family member chose to help someone who was sad or chose to tell the truth even when lying was easier.
    2. Discuss other options and how to tell if you've made a wise choice.
    3. Pray for wisdom in making the next day's choices. Ask Jesus to give you some of his wisdom.
    4. Talk about how your prayers have helped you know what Jesus would choose to do.


    Talk About This

    Tell about a time you showed wisdom.

    Tell about a time you didn't show wisdom.

    When do you need Jesus most this week for wisdom?
