DPKLive with your family!
Due to the Corona virus safety recommendations from the CDC, we are not meeting in person tonight but you can still gather with your family and worship together!
Below you will see the very same resources that your DPKLive leaders use to lead your children and teach them on Wednesday nights as well as a little bit of helpful commentary to equip you to be the best kids worship leader ever!
Who knows, when this is all over you may want to join our awesome DPKLive team!

If you have a smart TV but it's smarter than you are 😉 please let us know we would be glad to help you get it set up to stream from your phone
DPKLive Small Group Time
This is a time for our kids to break up into smaller, age appropriate groups, watch a video and discuss how the bible applies to their lives.
We use FREE Rightnow media videos for our DPKLive curriculum so when you click the link below you will have to login to view the FREE video. If you don't already have an account you can create one here for FREE. Rightnow media is an incredible resource for adults and kids; we call it the 'Christian Netflix.' Did we mention that it's FREE?
Younger Small Group Video
Our younger kids (K-2) are learning with Theo. With Theo, learning about God and who He's called us to be is easy and fun. Each lesson focuses on a spiritual topic that both entertains and teaches children about key aspects in the Christian faith. This week, Theo illustrates the biblical teaching of adoption in the Bible, to show how God lovingly welcomes homeless sinners into His family.
Younger Small Group Discussion Questions

Older Small Group Video
Our older kids (3rd-5th) are learning with Sparkhouse. With the animated Bible stories of Kings, Prophets, and Exile, preteens revisit the Bible's greatest stories including the anointing of King David, Solomon's Temple, and more. Specifically designed for kids 9-12, each episode has just enough quirky preteen humor to get kids' attention as they join hosts Becky and Todd on their adventures.

Bible Memory Verse
We are challenging all of our kids to hide God's word in their heart's by memorizing scripture. This week's memory verse is Isaiah 9:3
For "3God, you will cause the nation to grow.
You will make the people happy.
And they will show their happiness to you.
It will be like the joy during harvest time.
It will be like the joy of people
taking what they have won in war."
