This weekend in CedarVille we learned how God can give us hope. Even when we feel completely hopeless, God is always there with us to give us hope.
As a family read about Noah and how God helped him in Genesis 6-9:17. There are a few chapters to read, so try reading a little bit each day this week! Also take time to read a key verse from this weekend:
“We put our hope in the Lord. He is our help and our shield.” Psalm 33:20
Family Discussion Questions:
What did God think of the people of the earth? Who was still honoring God? What did God ask Noah to do? Who went on the ark? How long did it rain? Did the things that weren’t on the ark survive the flood? How did Noah know when it was safe to open the ark? How do you think you would react to God asking you to build an ark?
This weekend’s Bright Idea was “God Gives Me Hope.” How would you describe hope? As a family talk about a time when you needed hope. Did you get hope? How did it help you? Take a piece of paper and draw a self-portrait of when you have had hope in your life. Describe to your family what parts of the picture show you have hope!
In CedarVille, we have the opportunity to memorize a verse and earn a special treat. It makes all the difference when families work on memorizing the verse together! This week take time to practice Philippians 4:4-5. The verse is found below. Check out our CedarVille.tv Facebook page for motions that can help your family learn the memory verse together!
“Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again — Rejoice!” – Philippians 4:4
“Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again — Rejoice! Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon.” – Philippians 4:4-5
