Family Ministry Faith at Home Resources

Hello Families,

Theme: Joseph Forgives - Part 4

Please watch our 3 Teaching Videos (Families: Heather, Children: Shannon & ChildrenYouth: Jake) along with this week's worship song video, craft video and other age-appropriate video links to help further your faith at home. We encourage parents to open the lesson plans provided and engage their children in the story, crafts and discussion. 

Focus: To understand the importance of forgiveness and following God's plan for our lives.

Scripture: Genesis 42-45, Luke 6:27-28

Life Application Summary: Although Joseph's brothers had wanted to get rid of him...God used even their evil actions to fulfill his ultimate plan. He sent Joseph ahead to preserve their lives, save Egypt, and prepare the way for the beginning of the nation of Israel. God is sovereign. His plans are not dictated by human actions. When others intend evil toward you, remember that they are only God's tools. What people intend for evil...God can turn into GOOD! Over time, Joseph saw how his brothers had changed for the better and was able to offer them all forgiveness.


Our Family Ministry Team delight in reaching out, encouraging and offering you prayer. When you get a chance, watch our teaching videos, engage in the lesson plans and pray together as a family. Feel free to call, email or message us about anything and we will pray about everything.

• What can we learn from Joseph's defeats and triumphs?

• Have you ever done something you wished you hadn't done? Would you want to be forgiven for it?

• What does forgiveness do for people?
