Serving Your Crew

Word of the Week:  Serve

Bible Verse: Loveeach other like a family.  Romans 12:10

Story:  Through the Roof: The Paralyzed Man (Mark 2 : 1-12)

Prayer: Lord, Ipray that I will always serve my friends and my family and even those who aren’t very nice to me.  Help me to love others and help them out whenever I can.   Show me ways to be kind and loving at all times.  Amen

“Ripples of Kindness”

“Take-It-Home” Activities

Parents: Is there a spouse, parent, friend, co-worker, neighbor, stranger…that you could serve this week.? Choose someone and do one intentional act of service this week that you don’t usually do!

Toddlers:  Gather up some cleaning supplies, such as a duster, rags, broom, mop, sponge, etc.  Name the item and see if your child can point to the item you named.  Then show them what to do with each item.  Give them a chance to try and help you clean sometime this week.  Be sure to give them lots of praise for their help!

Age 3 – Kindergarten:  On slips of paper, write little jobs that your child can do to help you and drop the papers into a jar (you can call this the “Helper Jar” if you’d like).  Each day this week, your child gets to pick out a slip of paper and help you with a new job.  Here are some ideas to get you started:  unload the silverware from the dishwasher, help sort the laundry, set the table, make a bed, dust the living room, match clean socks together, sweep the kitchen, help fold the towels, pick up toys…
