take it home

Bug of the Week:  Butterfly  When a caterpillar goes into his cocoon, he turns into a beautiful butterfly.  When we spend time learning about Jesus and reading the Bible, we can become more like Him!

Prayer: Dear Jesus, I understand that You made me.  Help me to become more like You.  Amen

“Take-It-Home” Activities

Parents: Your children’s faith starts with you; they watch you to learn what it means to be like Christ!  Ask God to show you one way you can be more like him this week…your attitude, your patience, how you treat others, how you spend your time…

Toddlers:  Reading God’s Word is part of discipleship, so start early with your children!  Even a young child can recognize television characters, so we know they can also recognize a picture of Jesus if they see it often.  This week, read to your child out of a children’s Bible each night before they go to bed.  If your child doesn’t have their own Bible, stop by Bright Beginnings and ask for one!

Age 3 – Kindergarten: Prayer is also a spiritual discipline.  Make an intentional effort to pray often with your child this week.  You can pray before bedtimes and meals, when your child falls or is anxious about something, when you’re riding in the car or when a friend is sick.  We teach your children that praying is talking to Jesus and you can do that anytime and anywhere!
