Faith Kids@ Home: April 21, 2024

The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday, April 21. We would encourage you to use the ideas below to review Sunday’s lesson with your family. 

John Prepares the Way for Jesus 

Read: Matthew 3:1-17 

Ask your child: 

  • What was John the Baptist’s message? Repent and prepare to receive the Messiah. 
  • Why wouldn’t John baptize the Pharisees and Sadducees? They didn’t believe they needed to repent. 
  • Why was Jesus baptized? Though Jesus was sinless, He was fulfilling the Father’s plan by demonstrating His willingness to be counted as a sinner. 
  • Emphasize this principle: God sent His Son. Therefore, we should repent and prepare the way for His work. 


  • Acknowledge sin and repent by trusting Jesus for salvation. 
  • Live to please God the Father on a daily basis. 
  • Share the hope of the gospel with others. 

Sing: “Lord, Be Glorified” 

Prepare for next week: Matthew 4:12-25 

Memorize for Apr 7-Apr 28: Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.” Ephesians 4:32*
