Please be sure to complete the "Contact Information" tab on the left side of the website. This information will be helpful for us to make sure you are updated on all the K-Life happenings from club, small groups, events, etc.
This resource page will be updated with questions/devotionals that will help jumpstart a conversation with your child about what they are learning in club each week. At the bottom of the page you will find some great parent resources and information that will help provide ways that you can disciple your children at home.
CAR RIDE CONVERSATION STARTERS
The American parent spends a little less that 40 minutes a week in meaningful conversation with their children. My guess is that number is down considerably if we were to look at how many minutes are spent in spiritual conversations with our children. It is my belief that all parents want what is best for their children and especially for Christian families; we want to see our children follow after Jesus Christ and profess him as Lord and Savior.
However, with the business and craziness of the American fast-paced-never-take-a-breath culture very little time is being devoted to this pursuit of becoming a disciple of Christ. The purpose of updating these CAR RIDE CONVERSATION STARTERS is to provide you with questions that will help you jumpstart a great spiritual conversation with your children. I haven't found research to show this, but in my opinion the car is the best place to have a conversation with your children for many reasons - you are usually traveling at least 15 minutes one way if not more, they can't go anywhere, and you can be an initiator.
Middle School and High School Club - October 22, 2012:
Tonight we continued with our series "I am..." where we are looking at the different statements that Jesus made about himself in the gospel of John. This week we looked at John 15 for the last I am statement of Jesus which is, "I am the true vine."
I would encourage you to ask your student these questions this week:
1. Tell me who do the different parts (branches, vine, vinedresser) represent in the story.
2. What does it say about branches that do not abide in Christ and bear fruit?
3. What does it say about branches that do abide in Christ and bear fruit?
4. How can you know for sure that you are saved or that you are abiding in Christ? There are at least 4 different ways that we can see in this passage alone.
5. How do you feel you are doing in your walk with Christ and what are some ways that we can abide in Christ?
