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!

    Acts: God Sends Christians the Holy Spirit

    Acts 2:1-13


    Learning Target: I know the Holy Spirit gives us power.


    In this passage we read that Jesus’ followers are meeting together when all of a sudden, they hear a mighty windstorm and flames appear over their heads. The Holy Spirit gives everyone the ability to speak in other languages to people from a lot of countries. The Holy Spirit gives us power today, too!


    Family Together Time

    Take a “power inventory” of your home.

    • Guess how many things in your home use power. Write down each person’s guess.
    • Go to each room together and count everything that needs power. Don’t forget battery-operated items!
    • See who had the closest guess.
    • Unplug or turn off as many of the items as you can. You may need to leave your refrigerator plugged in, but turn off all the lights and unplug entertainment devices.
    • With your home using very little power, sit and talk about which devices are your favorites.
    • Talk about why electric power is important in your daily life.
    • Talk about in what ways you each need power from the Holy Spirit.
    • Pray for each other to get power from the Holy Spirit.

    Talk About This

    Share how to say "Jesus loves you" in a different language.

    Acts: God Gives Peter Power to Heal a Crippled Beggar

    Acts 3


    Learning Target: I know God helps us be bold.


    In this lesson we read how Peter and John see a crippled man begging for money. They don’t have money for him, but they have bold faith and they can heal him! Then Peter makes a bold speech to the crowd, announcing that Jesus is God’s Son and that the Jews rejected Jesus.

    God helps us be bold like Peter.


    Family Together Time

    Take time this week to do the following activity with your children:

    • Look through a cookbook or go online to find a bold-flavored recipe. Depending on your tastes, this can be anything from a hot salsa to adding onion to a burger.
    • Work together as a family to prepare your bold meal or snack.
    • Eat your bold-flavored snack and describe the flavors.
    • As you continue to eat, discuss the question in the “Talk About This…” box below.
    • Then share how your bold snack can inspire you to be bold for Jesus.

    Talk About This

    Imagine a typical day in your life.  What would change if you acted really bold for Jesus?

    Acts: God Helps Stephen Forgive His Enemies

    Acts 7


    Learning Target: I know God helps us forgive our enemies.


    In this lesson we read how Stephen gets in trouble with Jewish leaders. People tell lies to say he is speaking against God. Stephen preaches the truth about Jesus, and they get even more angry. They kill Stephen, and as they do, Stephen prays to forgive them. God helps us forgive our enemies..


    Family Together Time

    This week take time to do the following activity with your children:

    • Choose a bathroom everyone in your family uses.
    • Throughout the week, when anyone in your family is angry at someone, the angry person will make a smudge on the mirror with his or her finger.
    • At the end of the week, look at your reflections in the mirror.
    • Talk about the effect it has on you when you refuse to forgive someone.
    • Clean the mirror together, and ask for God’s help to forgive others.

    Talk About This

    Tell about a time when it was really hard to forgive someone.

  • March 31st

    Acts: God Sends Philip to an Ethiopian Man

    Acts 8:26-40


    Learning Target: I know the Holy Spirit gives us direction.


    In this lesson we learn that an angel tells Philip to head south. As he does, he sees an Ethiopian in a carriage. The Holy Spirit tells him to walk beside the carriage, and Philip tells the Ethiopian about Jesus. Later, the Holy Spirit snatches Philip away and puts him in a new spot. The Holy Spirit gives us direction.


    Family Together Time

    This week take time to do the following activity with your children:

    • Whenever you’re out with your family, ask the Holy Spirit to show you people who need help.
    • Ask the Holy Spirit to show you how you can help the people you see. It might be buying a meal at a fast food restaurant, giving them a kind word, or something else.
    • Have family members share what direction the Holy Spirit is giving them, and then follow his leading together.
    Talk About This
    What's an area in your life in which you need more direction?

    Acts: God Changes Saul's Life

    Acts 9:1-19


    Learning Target: I know Jesus changes our lives.


    In this lesson we learn that Saul is a big-time bully. He’s been hurting Christians and is on his way to arrest more when he meets Jesus. This event totally changes his life, and he begins to love and follow Jesus. Jesus changes our lives just as he changed Saul’s life.


    Family Together Time

    This week take time to do the following activity with your children:

    • Get out family photos, and choose one photo from each year of your kids’ lives.
    • Choose a few photos from every few years of your life, too.
    • Look at the photos as a family, and observe ways you’ve each changed physically. What’s stayed the same?
    • Talk about deeper changes you’ve seen in each other that reflect Jesus changing your lives. For example, maybe your child is less selfish, more patient, or more willing to share.

    Talk About This

    Share something you'd like Jesus to change about you.
