1 HEY, PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS! Grace is giving somebody something good that he or she doesn t deserve. We deserve punishment for our sin, but instead, God offers us salvation through Jesus Christ. When we place faith in Christ as our Savior we are saved from punishment, we are justified (judged by God as innocent and righteous) and we have peace with God. Use the following 1. What is grace? Who deserves God s grace? Why? 2. Tell a story: Describe a time when you received grace from another person. What were the circumstances? How did you feel when she presented you with grace? 3. How does knowing the grace God gave you affect how you treat others? How will you show grace to others this week? In the Start Here portion of the What Is Grace section in the T&T kid s handbook, your T&T kids were asked to write or draw what grace means to them. ROMANS 5:1-2 Therefore, having been justifi ed by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

2 HEY, PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS! The Old Testament says that anybody who keeps all of God s laws will be saved. But nobody can keep all the laws. So God sent Jesus Christ, who did keep all the laws, to take our punishment for breaking the law. By grace, we can be saved just by believing that Christ died for us. Use the following 1. How many of us have kept all of God s commandments? 2. Tell a story: Describe a time when you broke a rule or law. Perhaps you ve been pulled over for a traffic stop or cut classes in school. Share a time when you willingly broke a rule or law and use it as a teachable moment with your child. Help them learn by learning from your mistakes. 3. How can you honor the Lord this week with your choices? In the Start Here portion of the Grace and Law section in the T&T kid s handbook, your T&T kids were asked to draw or write about a time when they broke one of the Ten Commandments. GALATIANS 3:2-3 This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?

3 HEY, PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS! We should remember the grace that God gave us through salvation in Jesus Christ. Our thankfulness to Him makes us want to do the good things God tells us to do, like obeying those He puts in charge over us. Use the following 1. What does the Bible say about obeying authorities, especially our parents or caregivers? 2. Tell a story: Describe a time when you obeyed and listened to the wisdom of a parent or caregiver and it really made all the difference in the outcome of the story. 3. How will knowing what the Bible says about obeying authorities affect the way you respond the next time your parents or other people in charge of you ask you to do something? In the Start Here portion of the Grace to Obey section in the T&T kid s handbook, your T&T kids were asked to write the names of some of the people who are in positions of authority over them. TITUS 3:1 Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work.

4 HEY, PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS! God forgives all our sins (past, present, and future) when we trust that Jesus Christ died for us on the cross and rose again. Remembering how we were forgiven can help us to forgive others. Use the following questions below to continue the conversation with your child. 1. Which of our sins are forgiven when we accept Christ as our Savior? 2. Tell a Story: Describe a time in your life when you forgave someone or someone forgave you in a significant way. What did you learn from that encounter with forgiveness? 3. Knowing how much you have been forgiven by God when you accepted Jesus as your Savior, how will this affect the way you respond to others who need forgiveness? How should our family forgive each other? In the Start Here portion of the Grace to Forgive section in the T&T kid s handbook, your T&T kids were asked to draw or write about a time that they forgave someone or someone forgave them. EPHESIANS 4:32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.

5 HEY, PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS! Paul hated Christians and arrested them whenever he could. But Jesus Christ appeared to Paul and, by grace, saved him even though Paul was His enemy. Now we are told to look at the example of Paul to understand God s grace. Use the following questions below to continue the conversation with your child. 1. What was Paul like before he knew Christ as his Savior? 2. Tell a story: What s the difference? Describe the change that is taking place in your life as you become more like Jesus. What has changed? What is different in your life because you have a relationship with Christ? Share these changes with your child. 3. How is your family different because of the work of Christ? What can we do, as a family, to recognize these changes? In the Start Here portion of the Grace and Paul section in the T&T kid s handbook, your T&T kids were asked to draw or write about how Paul treated Christians. 1 TIMOTHY 1:13-14 Although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.

6 HEY, PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS! When we remember how much grace God gives to us, we should want to show grace to others. God s Word tells us to do good to everyone, especially those in our Christian family. Sometimes we may not feel like helping others, but the Holy Spirit can make us willing and strong to help others. Use the following questions below to continue the conversation with your child. 1. Whom should we help? Why is it important to help others in our Christian family? 2. Tell a story: Describe a time when you went out of your way to help another person or family. Why did you do it? Why is it important to pay more attention to the needs of others? 3. What are some specific ways we can help others or another family this week? In the Start Here portion of Grace in Action section in the T&T kid s handbook, your T&T kids were asked to list five people they see every day or almost every day and one thing they could do for each person that would make their day better. GALATIANS 6:9-10 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.

7 HEY, PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS! God s undeserved gift of grace is freely given to everyone who trust Jesus as Savior. God continues to bless us with grace throughout our lives as the Holy Spirit teaches us how to be more like Jesus, how to obey, forgive, help, and tell others the good news about God s grace. Use the following 1. How do you receive God s grace? 2. Tell a story: Describe what you are doing with your life because you have received God s grace. What s different or should be different? How has your life s trajectory been altered because you have received the grace of God? 3. What is something that you and/or your family can do this week to help someone and show them the love of Christ? In the Living By Grace Review section of the Living by Grace unit in the T&T kid s handbook, your T&T kids were asked to share what they have learned over the last six sections in the Living by Grace unit. and Memory Verses from
