Coming up in Gateway Kids - Oct 25

Preschool
We end the month with Daniel and the Lions. (Daniel 6:1-23) Daniel did the right thing even when he knew it would cause a BIG problem for him. Daniel trusted God to be with him, and he was. Daniel was strong and courageous for sure! And, because he knew God was with him, he was able to be brave.

Elementary
We’ll finish the month by digging deeper into our memory verse, 1 Timothy 4:12.After spending time with Paul traveling from city to city preaching the news of the gospel, Timothy ended up back in Ephesus, and he had some experience under his belt. Even as a young man, he was able to lead this significant church.

Bottom Line: You can make a difference right now. We want our kids to understand that they don’t have to wait to use the gifts God has given them. The next generation can do some amazing thing right now if the present generation starts helping them unpack their potential. 

Week 4 Elementary GodTime 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.
