Chapel of the Cross Faith & Family

Family Bible time for the week of January 31-Feb. 6

Welcome to Chapel's Faith & Family!

This interactive Bible time is a great way for your family to gather around God's Word and read, listen, watch, sing, and do activities together that help you learn more about God's great love for you in Jesus.

Water from the Rock

Who do you trust to give you the things you need?


It wasn’t long after God started feeding His people with manna that they began complaining to Moses again. They were thirsty. God had already shown them His ability and desire to provide for them, but instead of looking to God to give them what they needed, they moaned to Moses.

Moses pointed out to them that their quarrel was not with him but with God Himself. The people then accused God of leading them to the wilderness to kill them there! Amazingly, God was merciful and patient with His people and gave them the water they needed.

Opening Prayer

Dear God, often we are not satisfied with what we have. Help us to know that it’s You we really need. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Bible Lesson: Water from the Rock

  • Open your family Bible or a Children's Bible storybook and read this account together OR
  • Read this account using an online Bible (Biblegateway.com) Exodus 17:1–7 OR
  • Listen to the Bible account being read using the video below.
Moses in the Wilderness (Exodus 14-24)

Talk about it

  • What did the Israelites complain about this time?
  • How did God show that He would take care of them?
  • What reminders does God give us today that He still takes care of us?


The Israelites were thirsty. They forgot how God had taken care of their needs in the past and they complained instead of trusting God would give them what they need.


God told Moses to strike a rock and the people saw water gush out for them to drink--from a rock!


God provides for our physical needs through parents and others who care for us. God reminds us in His Word that He loves us and saved us through Jesus.

Bible Verse

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Closing Prayer

Dear Jesus, give us grateful hearts. Thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, the bread of life, to be our Savior. Help us to share this good news with others. In Your name we pray, Jesus. Amen.
