Welcome to The Finish Line where we are racing through life, living out the finished work of the cross of Jesus Christ. Every session we are going to go through this race together and come to The Finish Line where we are reminded that our sinful nature was crucified and buried with Jesus. When Jesus rose in victory over the grave, He showed us that we have the power of the Holy Spirit to live a life of righteousness in Christ Jesus and because of His mercy and grace, we can have victory over every area of our lives.
You and your children are about to encounter Jesus!
Everyone participating in The Finish Line should have a bible with the New and Old Testaments. I use the New Living Translation for all of my teaching. Feel free to pause the teaching videos and find the scriptures with your kids or you may want to have them find all the scriptures before you begin and mark their bibles with a bookmark for easy access during the video. I also highly recommend letting children highlight and write in there bibles. It makes the word personal for them and they will come back to these verses in the future. You may even want to use colors that coordinate with the flags so it will be recognizable to them at later dates. Have fun digging into God's word together as a family!

The teaching videos and all of the course material is original and written by me, Leann Woelk. Thank you for honoring me by not sharing the pdfs with others or downloading the videos for others to watch. I have made the course very affordable so everyone can have access to it. You can let others know about this course by having them go to Handle with Care School and purchasing the course for themselves. Thank you.
The Finish Line Guidebook is available for you to download to help you navigate through the Family Encounter Sessions. Individual PDF pages from the guidebook that correspond with the sessions are also uploaded into each session for easy access. I've included the Title page and the last page of the guidebook for you below.
The videos are not to be downloaded and stored on your computer. All videos are available to you for the duration of the course.
All videos and course materials are best viewed on a computer or iPad rather than a phone.
Each session gives you videos and pdfs to help you teach your kids biblical truths. The teaching videos correspond to the downloadable pdfs. I may also suggest songs that will help you with scripture memorization (Volume 3 Romans Road is highly recommended from Jumpstart3 ) and activities from various websites that will enhance your sessions.
It's up to you to choose the order of videos, songs or activities but if you'd like some direction here is what I would recommend:
- Victory Verse
- Online Teaching Video
- Tune Up Time
We all need community! If you'd like to have an interactive experience on-line, please go to the public group The Finish Line Facebook Group and feel free to upload fun pictures or videos of your kids learning scriptures or getting creative with activities.
A huge "Thank you" to my family for working on this project with me! I couldn't have done it without you. And a special thanks for Pastor Micheal Voll and my church North Pointe Community Church here in Edmonton, AB for their support and use of their equipment and facility to make this project possible.
