Easter Gameplan

Easter Gameplan

Jesus said to go and make disciples of all the nations. We are firm believers that ‘all the nations’ begins in our own homes with our spouse and children. This month we want to focus on three things that will contribute to the discipleship of our families – reading scripture, praying, and worshiping together. I realize this may sound like a lot. However, these three things are some of the most basic and fundamental parts to our faith and making disciples. If you can accomplish these three things in your home you’ll be well on your way to being a disciple yourself and to discipling your children.

With that being said, if you’re like me, life gets chaotic and, unfortunately, these are some of the first things that fall off my radar. What do I do? One thing I try to do is capitalize on the opportunities that the calendar gives me! Holidays can provide a great opportunity to refocus, almost like an excuse or a reason to get back on track. This April, we’ll get to celebrate Easter together as a family and I want to use this holiday to help us focus on what matters most. In an effort to help facilitate these three things, we’ve created a guide to walk you through the days leading up to Jesus’ death and resurrection. We’ve included some verses to read and guided prayer opportunities to do as a family. To download your guide, click here!

Preschool Parents

“J-E-S-U-S! We love Jesus. He’s the best!” That’s what your child will be hearing this month. Jesus is the BEST. Thousands of years ago, Jesus died for each and every one of us. That means He died for you, too. In the midst of all the fun that revolves around Easter, try to take some time to read the Easter story. I’m not talking about the board book version you read to your child (although that is a good one). I mean opening your Bible to Matthew 26 and reading through Matthew 28. Dive into the Word and read about how much Jesus loves you. Jesus loves you, He died for you, He came back just like He said He would, AND He wants to be your friend forever. He wants to be your friend and your child’s friend. That’s what we’re celebrating this month. Click here to find out how to lead your child through the Easter story this month.

Elementary Parents

This month we will be learning that Humility is a response of the character of God. In Philippians 2:3, we read, “Don’t do anything only to get ahead. Don’t do it because you are proud. Instead, be humble. Value others more than yourselves.” (NIrV) God has no beginning and no end. God is the creator and sustainer of the universe. He deserves all of our worship and praise for what He has done and continues to do in our life. The only proper response in light of God’s greatness is to respond with humility in our interactions with the people around us. We want RADIUS kids to know that humility is a trait we learn directly from Jesus and is paramount for living a Christ-centered life. We want to better equip you as parents so click here to find ways you can lead conversations in your home!

Middle School Parents

Have you ever been to a concert? Maybe you had tickets for great seats. Maybe you were in the nosebleeds. Either way, you probably noticed that everyone had the same goal in mind, to get as close as possible. There’s just something about being near the band or near the artist that makes a great concert even more fun. But there’s a limit, right? No matter how good your tickets are, you can only get so close. There’s a velvet rope you can’t cross, a hall you can’t walk down, or a security guard you can’t stroll right past because those areas are reserved for certain people . . . special people— people with an all-access pass. Maybe you’ve felt the same way when it comes to God. Sure, you come to church and sing songs or listen, but there’s a limit to how close you can get. It’s almost like there’s a velvet rope around certain parts of our faith that tells us those parts are restricted to special people, to church-staff people, or to super-spiritual people. But what if that’s never what God intended? In this series we’ll explore what the Resurrection of Jesus really meant— for real people like us. And, we’ll discover that, because of Easter, we have an all-access pass to Him and to the life He has for us.

High School Parents

There are some pretty amazing characters and stories in the Old Testament. Part of the miracle of scripture is that each one somehow ties to Jesus and teaches us something about our relationship with the Lord. In April the RADIUS High School students will be studying the life of Joseph & Moses. Through this we will be taking a look at how God uses suffering in the lives of His people as he’s writing His story; what it looks like to answer a call on your life by God; how God has our backs when we are willing to love, serve, and follow Him; and how the Passover and Ten Commandments connect to our lives today. We will be asking your student to read the passages of scripture before they come each week – so join us in starting the conversation at home before they come to our gathering on Sunday night! Click here to see what to read and how you can lead in the conversation at home.
