Week Three: "The Coming King"
Ask the family to sit in a circle with you. Start a story by saying, “Once upon a time there was a … ” and let the kid to your right fill in the blank. Each kid will add a sentence to tell the story, and when it gets back to you, end the story. Consider adding an unsatisfying ending, or even just saying “the end,” regardless of the story’s state.
A bad ending can ruin a good story. We’ve been learning about God’s big story about our King, Jesus. Today we will finally hear about God’s perfect ending to this incredible story.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 “16
For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.”
