Activities

Family Discussion

  1. In this parable, a landowner planted a vineyard and rented it out to tenants? What did the tenants do when the landowner sent servants to collect the fruit?

  2. Then what did the landowner do? (sent other servants) And what did the farmers keep doing? (see vs. 36)

  3. In the end, who did the landowner send? What did they do to him? (see vs. 37-39)

  4. Who are the tenants in the parable? (the religious leaders)

  5. How are we sometimes like the tenants in the parable?

  6. How do we “trip” on the truths that Jesus was teaching in this parable? (not recognizing who Jesus is, not knowing how bad our sin is, not believing how far God’s grace reaches)

  7. When I really understand and believe that God’s grace takes care of all my sin, how will I treat others?

The Big Idea
‘When I really believe the amazing truth of God’s grace to me, I give it freely to others. ’

Welcome

Welcome to Faith Kids where we long to see kids formed into lifelong disciples of Jesus. We believe this happens best when a faithful community of Christ followers loves them and models for them what it means to walk in His ways and with His heart for others and for the world.
