Word of the Week: Protection
Bible Verse: The Lord can protect you. 2 Thessalonians 3:3
Story: Jesus Calms the Storm (Mark 4:35-41)
(creating the storm)
Prayer: Lord, I am glad You love me and care about what happens to me. Thank You for always being with me and watching over me. Help me talk to You when I am afraid. Amen
Parents: Fear is a normal emotion for young children. Anytime your child is fearful, take that opportunity to pray with them, reassuring them that God is always with them.
Birth – Age 2: Reenact this week’s story with your child. Take turns being the scared disciple rocking back and forth in the boat during the storm and being Jesus, commanding the wind and the waves to Stop! Remind them that God is always in control and will protect us.
Age 3 – Kindergarten: Ask your child what they want to be when they grow up then talk about the different “gear” they would need for the job. Tell them God has a plan for their life and will always be with them to protect them!
