April 5 - Resources
Feel free to adapt these resources to fit your family. We realize that your children range from Birth to 5th Grade and not all content or activities will be appropriate. We have placed a bin outside the church office door with the Kids Activity Pages so they can be picked up any day or time during the week that fits your schedule and also can be picked up within the social distancing guidelines that we are trying to adhere to.
- Before you begin this week’s lesson, challenge each of your kids to develop a secret handshake and share it with each other. Make it personalized, include fist bumps, high fives, hand clapping, turning around or other moments. Practice it a few times until everyone gets it down.
- Say: “People all over the world shake hands as a greeting. It’s a sign to say Hello, nice to meet you. What other actions do we use to communicate? (Waving, bowing, hugging, saluting, crossing arms, etc)
- What do these mean? In the Bible lesson today, we will learn about Baptism. Baptism is a symbol to show what it means to follow Jesus."

Jesus is baptized
He must increase, but I must decrease. John 3:30
questions from kids
Watch the video and afterwards discuss with your children the questions and answers that they talked about.
Post videos or photos of your family “Home Churching” on our Facebook Page @ofbckids.
We miss interacting with you. We miss the smiles, hugs and high 5’s. We miss the laughter of the kids.
We are in constant prayer for all of you. We know we can get through this and we can’t wait to hear the stories of how God used this time of quarantine to strengthen your family bond and build your relationships with him. Connect with us. Post, email. Just say hi. Let us know how you’re doing.
