Children will also learn about the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering® as they reach out to their church to encourage giving to North American missions.

Big Picture Question: Who can keep God’s law? No one can keep God’s law perfectly except Jesus
This week, our journey through the Bible using The Gospel Project ® for Kids focused on
Moses’ farewell reminder to the people of Israel about God’s covenant and His
faithfulness to them. Moses called on the people to be holy and obey only God. If they
did this, they would be blessed. If they did not, they would not be blessed.
Help your kids understand that proper obedience is born out of gratitude to God for what
He has done, not as a way to earn God’s favor.
