Description

God’s Big Story is a new podcast for kids. On each episode, we’ll teach the Bible, sing the Bible, and talk about what it means with some friends.

Episode Date
What is Communion?
1055

Join Matt and Julie as they answer the question “What is Communion?” Today they’re joined by their friend, Bernie the baker (a legend in the baking), as they look for answers and find what they knead to know. Together, we’ll read the Bible, play a game, and sing a song as we continue to learn more about B!g Church this season.


Helpful Definitions:

COMMUNION – when people who love and trust Jesus eat and drink together to remember His death on the cross, how Jesus’ body was broken like bread and His blood was poured out like wine for sin.

BIBLE — God’s true Word. It is from God and about God.


Scripture Reference:

Matthew 26:26-29


5-Second Fly Through Review:

1. The symbolic meal of bread and juice served during church is called ___________ (Communion. Or the Lord’s Supper!)

2. What does the bread remind us of? (Jesus broken body)

3. What does the juice remind us of? (Jesus shed blood)

4. Does taking communion save you or forgive you of your sins? (No! Turning from sin and believing in Jesus does!)

5: Who is communion for? (Everyone who loves and trusts Jesus)


Song:

What is Baptism?
1127

Join Matt and Julie as they answer the question “What is Baptism?” They’re joined by their long-time friend, Will Derness, the wilderness explorer, as they search for answers. Together, we’ll read the Bible, play a game, and sing a song as we continue to learn more about B!g Church this season.


Helpful Definitions:

BAPTISM — to dip someone under some water and bring them back up—like Jesus died and was raised back to life—to show everyone that God has given them a new heart like Jesus.

THE CHURCH — everyone who loves and trusts Jesus.

MOTIVATION —  the reason why


Scripture References:

Romans 10:9, Matthew 28:19-20


5-Second Fly Through Review:

1. True or False: Jesus was baptized by his cousin John. (True)

2. True or False: When someone is baptized, we should celebrate. (True)

3. True or False: You should get baptized if your friends are. (False)

4. True or False: Once I’m baptized, I am saved. (False…baptism doesn’t save you, it shows others you already love and trust Jesus)

5. True or False: When someone is baptized, they go under the water and come back up. (True…that symbolizes Jesus death, burial and resurrection)
