"Jesus is Alive!" Kids Coloring Book & Devotional

We encourage parents to read the first few pages of the devotional. It gives great resources. Next on the table of contents, you will notice that while stories can be looked up in a regular Bible, they do follow along with the Jesus Storybook Bible (JSB). If you have this children’s Bible we would highly suggest using it. Some stories even correlate to the Bible App for Kids (a free download). Depending on how fast we were able to deliver your bag, you should be able to read one story a day and finish by April 2.

Daily Devotions & Thursday Hangout

Derek will be providing a daily devotional on Monday – Friday mornings at Noon for Tribe and 12:15pm for Amplify. If you don’t follow us, you can search @triberpcc and @amplifyrpcc on Instagram to follow us.

Thursday Hangouts
Tribe – Every Thursday at 2:30p.
Amplify – Every Thursday at 4p.
This week:
Story time with Derek.  Let’s read some children’s books, laugh, chat and talk about life together.
Join the zoom call Here

 

Quarantine Challenge

Use one card a week and complete as many activities as you can. This is just a list of fun and sometimes challenging ways to help your family pass some time. Take pictures along the way and share them on social media and hashtag #livingfearless2020 so as a family of churches, we can all see what each other are up to during this time.

Weekly Bible Memory Verses

These Bible verses are here for you to memorize with your family. God’s Word is full of wonderful promises and commands that provide comfort in this uncertain time in our history. We recommend memorizing one verse a week as a way to constantly be reminded of what God is saying to you.
