Hill Country Children at Home
Family Discussion Questions
Part of having church online is that the whole family can join together to hear the weekly sermon. Each week, we will be creating Family Discussion Questions to go along with the weekly message. This can help unite your family and gives you ideas on how to help your kids apply the message to their lives.
During this extended Spring Break, physical isolation, or quarantine (whatever you want to call it!), it can be hard to know what to do with the extra hours at home. We are here to help!
We have created a Daily Schedule as a guideline to provide some structure to your day. In the printable version, we layout the day in to small, manageable blocks. This version is great to print and stick up in a visible place in your help. In the resource version, we have the same schedule, but under each activity, we have included a variety of to help you as the parent.
We believe that the family is the most important spiritual leader in the life of their child (Deuteronomy 6:4-9)! During this time when we are not meeting together, we want to help equip you as the spiritual leader in your household.
We have 3 options for you to help you lead your families through the lessons we normally share on a Sunday: through our website, the ParentCue app, and our Hill Country Children Facebook page. Or, feel free to do any combination of the 3! They all have the same lesson, but different ways for you to lead activities for your families. Instructions on each can be found below.

AT HOME EXPERIENCE FROM ORANGE
The At Home Experience Videos, from our curriculum provider Orange, provide one kids worship song to do as a family and our weekly story video. After watching the video, be sure to talk with your kid about the lesson. Some example questions are below:
- How do you think the person felt in the story?
- What do we need to remember this week?
- What was your favorite part of the story?
- Who else do you think needs to hear this story?
- What's the one thing to remember this week?
4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
