The Kingdom of Justice: God Loves Everyone, Isaiah 56:1-8

Parents, join us as we continue in our Kingdom of Justice sermon series this week, studying the words of Isaiah as he leads us to understand God’s heart for Justice. During this series in Isaiah, your family will be learning about the biblical definition of justice and exploring how this definition teaches us to interact with God, ourselves, and our communities. Below are a variety of resources that mirror what your student is used to seeing and experiencing in a Vintage Kids classroom. Feel free to walk through this guide as it is or pick and choose based on your family. As always, your discipleship of your children is of utmost importance, Vintage is here to partner in that walk. Add, continue conversations, and enhance through family time this week. Let us know how we can help! 

Verse To Memorize With Your Kids:

As we spend time in Isaiah, we will be looking as a children’s ministry at what it looks like to lean into what scripture says about justice instead of what culture says about justice. We will be memorizing Psalm 89:14 as we travel through various passages in Isaiah; anchoring our truth in the fact that biblical justice is a foundation of who our Good Father is. Will you join us in memorizing this verse as a family and making scripture memorization part of your weekly routine?

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; steadfast love and faithfulness go before you. (Psalm 89:14)

Use our resources below and print our memory verse out for your child to decorate and hang somewhere where you will see it and decorate it. Use the Memory Verse practice page to help you and your child pull the verse apart and think about what each piece of the verse means. Understanding of the verse will help in committing it to memory- not only of the head but also of the heart. If you don’t have a printer, feel free to write it on a piece of paper and work on it there!

House of God Craft:

This week, we talked about how God loves Everyone. Isaiah 56:7 says “My house will be called a house of prayer for all peoples.”
For our craft this week we will be making a church that reminds your family that God’s house is for all people. You will need:
-An Envelope
-Glue
-Popsicle Sticks
-Construction Paper
-Crayons or Markers

Before you begin have your child glue an envelope onto a sheet of construction paper, opening facing out.

Show your child the envelope and talk about how this is a picture of God’s house of worship.

Who can go into this house of worship? Talk about how God’s house of worship is for all people.

Today we are going to make people to go inside. People that look different but are all welcome.

Give your child 3-4 popsicle sticks. Allow them to decorate these to look like different people. Put the people inside of the House of Worship.

Finish up by putting our verse from today on the envelope. Read the verse together.

Isaiah 56:7
“Oh yes, my house of worship
    will be known as a house of prayer for all people.”
