Our Daily Bible Stories with Pastor Mike
Our routines and schedules have been wrecked by the pandemic, and this can be especially tough on kids. These videos are one more opportunity to share the Bible stories, and a good way to help kids feel connected to their church family even when we can't gather. All of the stories come from the Jesus Storybook Bible, which is Pastor Mike's favorite story Bible (he learns as much from it as any kid can!).
There are 23 stories in the New Testament of this book, and May 13 is the final story. Our copyright permission limits the number of videos we can put up at a time, so you'll only be able to view the current and past 4 videos. If you missed the beginning, or would like to rewatch the videos, contact Pastor Mike and he can make them privately available to you.
FAITH 5 Daily Routine
If you don't already do it, I also encourage you to use this time to start your own routine of daily Bible reading and prayer together with your kids. Even older kids would benefit from this time together with you and God. Dig out that Bible the congregation has given your kids or drop me a note for recommendations for another age-appropriate Bible.
Faith Inkubators offers this profoundly simple pattern for daily time together that works with kids of all ages:
SHARE your highs and lows
READ a Bible verse or story
TALK about how the Bible reading might relate to your highs and lows
PRAY for one another’s highs and lows
BLESS one another
