Hi Parents!

We're excited for R/Kids Online this week! Our ministry is all about partnering with families in the mission of our church, to make disciples of all nations. We think this incredible call to families starts in the home. Our hope is that this content will equip parents to take an active part in discipling your kids through singing & learning, considering & applying, and playing together.

Because God created everything, He is in charge of everything. Everyone sins, or disobeys God. Our sin separates us from God. The good news of the gospel is that God sent His Son, Jesus, to take the punishment we deserve. Everyone who trusts in Jesus will be saved.

Our Kids Video Lessons for this week is "The Good News"

Memory Verse through March 14th
"We, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another."
Romans 12:5
  1. How is a person justified—given a right relationship with God? (by faith in Jesus’ sacrifice, Romans 5:1, 9)

  2. Through whom did sin enter the world? (Adam, Romans 5:12)

  3. Through whom does righteousness and justification come? (Jesus, Romans 5:18-19)

  4. Does it feel fair or unfair that Adam’s sin led to sin for all of us? 
    Guide kids to see that all of us have sin. We aren’t guilty simply because of Adam’s sin, but also because of our own sins. Help them see this truth through the lens of Christ’s sacrifice making righteousness available to all despite our sin.

  5. Does it feel fair or unfair that Jesus’ righteousness leads to righteousness for all who have faith? 
    Help kids see that this, too, is a picture of God’s perfect justice. He showed us mercy when Christ became our perfect substitute. Help the kids wrestle with the difference between human ideas about justice and fairness in contrast to God’s perfect justice and mercy.

  6. If God forgives all our sin when we have faith in Jesus, why is it necessary to live like Jesus? 
    Guide kids to remember that God’s plan for our lives is better for us than our own plans. Obeying God is good for us, because He knows what we need before we need it. Help them see obedience as a blessing, not a chore. Explain how sin may feel fun, but it leads to destruction, pain, and death.

SAY • God sent Jesus into the world to rescue sinners. The Bible is clear that we all are sinners and we all deserve death and separation from God. His choice to send Jesus proves His justice and mercy.

1) A printable activity & coloring sheet : All Fixed Up

2) Read all about it

Provide kids with large sheets of paper, pencils, markers, and rulers. Invite the kids to design a newspaper front page based on the information in today’s story. Encourage them to write a paragraph or two summarizing what they learned, or draw a large picture that represents what they learned. 

SAY • Paul wrote to the believers in Rome to explain the gospel to them. Paul wanted to be sure they knew the truth and were following Jesus. He wanted them to know that God sent Jesus into the world to rescue sinners. Paul wanted them to experience the transformation that is only possible by the Holy Spirit’s power and to be united together as a church body.
