WCC Kids at Home: September 6

Online video and curriculum for you to do as a family at home!

Check here Thursdays to see new curriculum and videos, discussion questions, and downloadable crafts for you to do at home!

1. Watch the Worship & Bible Story Video!

2. Do the Activities as a Family!


WHAT YOU DO: Give your child a printed template of the Connect the Dots activity page. As they draw in Joseph's coat, remind them about how Joseph's dad gave him a coat as a special present. Even though crazy things happened to Joseph, God had a big plan for him. The same is true for you and me! God has a big plan for us!


WHAT YOU DO: Place an empty bowl on the table. Tell your children that there are 12 ice cream scoops (cotton balls or pompoms) hidden around the house that they must find and bring back to the bowl. After they find all 12, tell them about how God brought all 12 brothers to Egypt in order to save them and their family from the famine. God's plan was to use even the bad things that happened to Joseph for good. And the family he saved ended up being the one that Jesus came from! God's plans are sometimes way, way bigger than we'll ever know. But He is always good!

A Good Friend Is . . .

All month long we are talking about friendship which is using your words and actions to show others you care. Check out the next page and color the picture of the two friends. As you are doing this, think of all the things you like about your friends. Write or draw these things all around the picture. Try and fill up as much space as you can!

Know that God wants you to choose good friends!

Be A Good Friend

Grab a piece of paper and something to write with. At the top of the page rainbow-write the words GOOD FRIEND. Then, divide your paper into three different parts and write one word in each section: SCHOOL, PLAYGROUND, NEIGHBORHOOD. Think of a way that you can be a good friend at SCHOOL, on the PLAYGROUND, and in your NEIGHBORHOOD and draw a picture showing it.

Look for ways that you can be a good friend this week.

When Do You Need a Friend?

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 covers a few different scenarios where having a friend is super important:

1) When you fall down
2) When you’re cold
3) When you’re feeling overpowered

These scenarios could also be described this way:
1) When you’re hurting (physically or emotionally)
2) When you’re in need
3) When someone or something is threatening you

Which of those can you relate to?
When have you been hurting, or in need of something, or feeling threatened by someone, and a friend jumped in to help? Take a minute to talk to God about it. Then thank God for that friend and ask Him to help you to be a friend like that, too.
