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: The 10 Commandments

For preschoolers, you may want to read from The Beginner's Bible, "Ten Commandments" (p.120-123.)

Exodus 20:1-17 NLT

Then God gave the people all these instructions:

2 “I am the Lord your God, who rescued you from the land of Egypt, the place of your slavery.

3 “You must not have any other god but me.

4 “You must not make for yourself an idol of any kind or an image of anything in the heavens or on the earth or in the sea. 5 You must not bow down to them or worship them, for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God who will not tolerate your affection for any other gods. I lay the sins of the parents upon their children; the entire family is affected—even children in the third and fourth generations of those who reject me. 6 But I lavish unfailing love for a thousand generations on those* who love me and obey my commands.

7 “You must not misuse the name of the Lord your God. The Lord will not let you go unpunished if you misuse his name.

8 “Remember to observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 9 You have six days each week for your ordinary work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath day of rest dedicated to the Lord your God. On that day no one in your household may do any work. This includes you, your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, your livestock, and any foreigners living among you. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens, the earth, the sea, and everything in them; but on the seventh day he rested. That is why the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and set it apart as holy.

12 “Honor your father and mother. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

13 “You must not murder.

14 “You must not commit adultery.

15 “You must not steal.

16 “You must not testify falsely against your neighbor.

17 “You must not covet your neighbor’s house. You must not covet your neighbor’s wife, male or female servant, ox or donkey, or anything else that belongs to your neighbor.”

Family Night Discussion Questions:

  1. Can you name the ten commandments? (Here is a fun way to memorize the ten commandments. Work on it as a family.)
  2. How do you feel about rules or laws?
  3. How do we know that God’s laws are good?
  4. Which of the ten commandments are about loving God?
  5. Which of the ten commandments are about loving others?
  6. Is it possible for any of us to keep all of the commandments? What about in light of what Jesus teaches in Matthew 5:21-22?
  7. Who is the only person to keep all of God’s commandments?
  8. Why should we follow God’s rules?

Family Night Ideas for Fun:

  • Tie Dye fourth of July shirts
  • Ride bikes to an ice cream shop
  • Go on a family prayer walk
  • Catch fireflies
  • Make a special 10 Commandments dinner or dessert bar. Choose something like tacos or ice cream sundaes and make sure you have 10 ingredients. Talk about the 10 Commandments using some of the above discussion questions as you eat.
  • Make Oops cookies. Make two batches of cookies. One batch, follow the directions. The second (smaller batch) double the oil. They won’t look pretty, but would still be edible so you aren’t wasting anything. As you bake the oops cookies, talk about “making them how you want to make them”. When they flop, talk about the importance of following the instructions. The 10 Commandments are God’s instructions to us. They help protect us.
