Coming up in Gateway Kids - Sept. 7

Preschool/Toddler:
Elijah prays to the one true God, to prove to the king, who has a fake idol, that God is the only one who can answer prayers. (1 Kings 18:1-39)

Elementary: 
We head back to the garden of Eden where God created Adam and Eve and gave them their First Job. Through passages in Genesis 1 and 2, we’ll see how they took responsibility and began to cultivate the earth. Our Bottom Line is: Show you can be trusted by taking care of what God has made. The first job God gave to Adam and Eve was a task that we can continue today.

Week 1 Elementary God Time Devotional

Each day’s devotion includes:

1. a verse(s) to read 
2. a devotion paragraph that teaches something about God and an explanation of today’s verse(s) 
3. an activity that makes real-life application of the day’s devotion 
4. a suggested prayer.

Encourage kids to choose four different days during the week to do these devotions. Even though kids in early elementary are beginning to read things on their own, you may want to do the GodTime card with your K-3rd grade child. Most 4th and 5th graders are capable of having a “quiet time” on their own, once they’ve been taught how to do it, but they still benefit from an adult following up on it.
