Join us for the Summer Family Night Challenge

First time to do the Family Night Challenge? Watch our intro video first.

Throughout the summer we have a unique opportunity to learn together as families. Our entire church, from preschool to elementary to adults, will be focusing on the same Bible passage each week. To make the most of this time, we are issuing the Summer Family Night Challenge! Here is what you need to do:

  1. Watch the Sunday message together as a family either online or in person. Find the Plano messages here.
  2. Set aside a night of the week to be your Family Night for the next six weeks.
  3. Visit the Plano Kids Kit page each week for videos, discussion questions and fun activity ideas that you can use to plan your Family Night.

Your two goals for your Family Night should be to have fun and have some intentional conversation around God's Word.

This Week's Lesson: David and Goliath

For preschoolers, you may want to read from The Beginner's Bible, "David and Goliath" (p.173-180.) For older kids read 1 Samuel 17 together as a family.

Watch Derek Mathew's message to learn how Jesus is our better David.

Why are the Knights of Narnia hiding from Goliath?

Family Night Discussion Question:

Jesus is the hero of every story. As a family look for how each of your favorite Bible stories points to Jesus. Have each person in the family pick their favorite Old Testament story. Take turns reading each story and discuss how each one ultimately points to Christ.

Family Night Ideas for Fun:

  • Read a book together as a family. A good choice is The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe from The Chronicles of Narnia. Download the Knights of Narnia's study guide for the book here.
  • Have a bubble or bubble gum blowing contest.
  • Use a paper plate to draw an angry Goliath face on the front. Tape/staple the plate as high up on a tree or wall as you can. (Goliath was 9 feet tall.) Use large marshmallow “stones” to try and hit Goliath’s face. Then use the rest of the marshmallows to roast over a fire or make s’mores.
  • Make Trust Stones. Go on a walk to a local park/creek or look around your yard for a stone to decorate. Take the stone home, clean it up and then let your child decorate it with sharpie markers or paint. Once it dries, talk with your child about how David was scared of Goliath, but he trusted God more. Ask your child to share something that scares him/her. Write that on one side of the stone with a sharpie. On the other side, write the word TRUST in bigger letters because God is bigger than our fears.
  • OR choose your own fun activity.
