New Life | Watch Party Activities | Arrow Kids
Here are a few simple activities to help your
kiddos learn from the service as you join up to watch it from home.
This week, our message will be talking about the new life that we can have only in Christ.
He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them. So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now! This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
2 Corinthians 5:15-17
Arrows of Triumph (2nd-5th Grade)
For the oldest children, we have a "Butterfly Thoughts" page. Throughout the service, kids can think about the life cycle of a butterfly. They can examine the meaning of 2 Corinthians 5:15-17 and how our new life in Christ is like that of the life of a butterfly.

Arrows of Victory (Preschool-1st Grade)
For the younger learners, we have an "I'm Listening Up-New Life" page. Throughout the service kids can think about how a butterfly was once a caterpillar. Then, you can talk with them about how Jesus died on the cross and rose again to give us new life, just like a caterpillar is given new life as a butterfly.

Arrow Kids (1-10yo)
For everyone, either print this picture of a butterfly with this week's verse or have your child draw a butterfly and write the verse on it. Have children use any craft supplies you would like to decorate their butterfly. Hang their artwork somewhere in the house where it will be seen often. Encourage your child to commit this verse to their memory this week. As you work with them to memorize it, talk to them about how your life has changed since accepting Christ's gift of salvation. Use this as a way to talk with them about whether they have found new life in Christ.
You can use this song to help your child memorize this verse throughout the week.
