CB Kids September 11–17

Welcome to our new series for CB Kids, Animated! When something is animated, it is brought to life, like how cartoon drawings can move! During the next few weeks, we’ll meet a group of people called prophets. Their job was to animate God’s words and let people know the truth. But people didn’t always want to hear it. That’s why the prophets’ lives weren’t very easy, and sometimes they felt some very big feelings! We can learn a lot from the prophets about how to follow God through our own animated moments.

Ask your child: What are some of your favourite animated movies or shows? Tell your child some of your favourite shows from when you were a child. Are those shows or movies still on the air?

Have some fun: You and your child each pick one animated TV show. Gather some snacks and blankets and sit down together to watch both shows. No scrolling social media, no photos, and no distractions! Just be in the moment together.  What did you like about each others' shows?

Read these passages from the Bible:
  • Jeremiah 18:1-11; Psalm 139:1-14

Talk about it: Prophets were people who shared God’s truth. And the truth that God gave to Jeremiah to share made Jeremiah really, really sad: God’s people had messed up. God compared the clay in the potter’s hands to God’s people in God’s hands. God reminded Jeremiah that, even though there would be consequences to their sin, God’s people were still in God’s hands. God was shaping and molding them like a potter does with clay.

Pray together: Dear God, we thank you for always caring about us and being with us. Thank you for reminding us through your prophet Jeremiah that we’re always in your hands. Remind us that you’re forming us all the time, in really hard times and in really good times. Help us to remember that no matter what comes in life, we can feel secure in you. Amen.

Learn the memory verse: May the God of hope fill you with all Joy and peace as you trust in him. (Romans 15:13a)

Recap: Your children learned today that because of God, I can feel secure. God compared the clay in the potter’s hands to God’s people in God’s hands. God wanted to remind Jeremiah that, even though there would be consequences, God’s people were still in God’s hands. God was shaping and molding them like a potter does with clay.
