It’s important to teach kids to respond to God’s Word every time they read it. A response can be a question, something that made you smile, or another story in the Bible, this reminds you of. Responding to God’s Word can also be something you do: acting out what you read, building the story out of Legos, or praying about something God said. There are no right or wrong answers, it’s about teaching your children to read God’s Word and respond to Him. Each week we will post new questions and activity ideas to get you started. Don’t feel pressured to get through them all– just pick a few that fit your family and see how they lead to great conversations about who Jesus is!

1 Peter 2

Response Activities:

  • 10 Good Things Challenge: In this week’s Ms. Erika’s Crazy Costume Catastrophe, Ms. Erika challenged your family to fill this printable with 10 good things about God. For fun you can post it to our GCCC-Local facebook page as a way of declaring those good things about God to others!
  • Cornerstone Legos: Dump out your legos and find a 2X4 brick in your favorite color. Build a house off of that. How is Jesus like a corner of a house? How is Jesus safe? Can you think of a time when God didn’t feel safe or dependable? Why or why not?
  • Diaspora Hunt – ‘Diaspora’ is a big word that refers to any people that has been displaced from their home. Peter wrote 1 Peter to Jewish Diaspora people living all over Turkey. Our partners in Spain are working with diaspora people from Africa, helping them get settled and learn about Jesus. Spend some time as a family asking Jesus to use our partners is Spain to help people know Him.
