take it home | 5-5-13

It was great to have you join us in Bright Beginnings today! The big word today was C E L E B R A T E. Our bug was the ladybug. Just like God created every bug with a special purpose, He created each of us with a special purpose too! We are so important to God and He celebrates US!

Bible Verse: Let’s celebrate! Luke 15:23b

Story: The Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-24)

Prayer: Dear Jesus, Thank You for making me on purpose! I am proud to be a part of Your family. I will become more like you by serving others and telling them how great You are. Amen

Some ideas for you to “take the message home!”

Parents
Do you believe God made you in His image and you are beautiful? Well it’s true! Pray this week for God to help you see yourself as He sees you. Then be mindful about how you talk about yourself (your body, hair, clothes, intelligence, abilities etc.) in front of your children.

Birth – Age 2
Young children are learning that family celebrations are special times. Have a special dinner one night this week complete with homemade party hats or decorations and dessert to celebrate God’s love for us. Tell your children that God loves them and sing “Jesus Loves Me!”startingsmall_party hats

Age 3 – Kindergarten
Get some finger paint or a stamp pad and help your children make finger prints on a paper. Use a magnifying glass (you can get one at the dollar store) to look at their finger prints and take notice that each one is different. Remind them that God made them each special!
