We at EGC Kids anticipate with joy each and every Sunday the opportunity of working with your children and showing them the love of Christ. We hope we can support you in prayers during the week. Please let any of us know how we can better serve you and your children.

Take a look below to see what our Kids Ministry learned this Sunday!
LESSON 17 | God is Forgiving
Bible Basis: Jonah 1:1 – 3:10
Bible Verse: 1 John 1:9: “But God is faithful and fair. If we admit that we have sinned, He will forgive us our sins. He will forgive every wrong thing we have done. He will make us pure.”
Bible Point: God forgave Jonah and the people of Nineveh. God will forgive me too.
Resource: The Beginner Bible
“Jonah and the Big Fish” (pages 257 – 264)
TABLE TALK: Use the Table Talk questions below to start a discussion around the Table at dinner.
Why do you think Jonah disobeyed God the first time God told him to go to Nineveh? (He didn’t like the people of Nineveh, and he didn’t think they deserved to be forgiven.)
When was the last time you disobeyed God or your parents? Did you ask for forgiveness?
What do you think it was like for Jonah to live inside a fish for three days?
Why do you think God forgives us when we disobey? Why do you think God wants us to forgive others? (Because God loves us and he wants what’s best for us. God knows that when we don’t forgive each other, it only hurts our own hearts. When we forgive others, we’re showing them God’s love. Forgiveness helps us to live at peace with one another.)

Week 3: Source Code – Honesty
Main Verse: Esther 3-7
Life Application: HONESTY- Choosing to be truthful in whatever you say and do
Today’s Key Question: When are you tempted to lie?
Drive Time: While in the car this month, ask these questions to your preteen. Be sure you answer them, too! “What does dishonesty look like to you? How does it make you feel when you are dishonest or someone is dishonest to you?”
Remember this: “Anyone who lives without blame walks safely. But anyone who takes a crooked path will get caught.” Proverbs 10:9, NIrV
