The weekly rhythm of worshipping God together as a family will be a great blessing to your children. These resources are provided to help your children worship with their church family either at home or in-person at SMRBC.

Sermon Notes for Kids
There are many free sermon notes for kids to be found on Pinterest and other places. These tools can be used to help your children be active listeners. Use the sheet at a later time to discuss the message. It’s also a good idea to reward kids for listening and taking notes. The promise of a lollipop or other reward can make a big difference.
The tally mark sheet is created each week for the “Kids Worship Packs“. If your children are attending the in-person worship gatherings on Sunday, look for those packs in the foyer. To mix it up…try one of the other sermon note sheets.

Family Worship Experience: Next Steps
Each week I will try to make a suggestion that will keep the Sunday message before your children. Pick a time that works best for you family to do this activity. Maybe after dinner or before bed.
Learn the Ten Commandments: In this next section of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus will say, “You have heard that it was said…but I tell you….” Jesus wants to make sure his audience understands that the Old Testament Scriptures point to him. Remember last week’s message? Jesus was not coming to abolish the Law, but to fulfill it. Your children will benefit greatly from knowing the 10 commandments in Exodus 20. Learn them together and discuss how Jesus kept them all perfectly. Here’s another great song to help them learn the 10 Commandments. It also teaches that, “no one can keep them all”. That is, no one except Jesus!
