Word of the Week: RELY
Recipe We Made in Class: Strawberry Shortcake (with angel food cake to remind us of the angel in our story)
Bible Verse: “We know and need God’s love.” 1 John 4:16
Story: Elijah and the Angel (1 Kings 19:1-18)
Prayer: Dear God, Thank You for always being with me. I know You care about me and will take care of me. You will always be there to help me through everything. Help me to learn and believe Your promises. Give me the strength that I need when I am afraid. Amen
Parents: The Bible is filled with God’s promises. Choose one (you can look on up using the index in the back of your Bible), write it down, and meditate on it this week.
Birth – Age 2: Children learn about relying on God when they rely on you. They quickly know what to expect from you and what is expected of them (though they will test you and push limits!). If you haven’t already, develop a consistent time when you pray with your child (bedtime and meals times are a great place to start). Your child will begin to rely on these times.
Age 3 – Kindergarten: Look out the window together on your next car ride and talk about what you see that reminds you of God’s love and provision. Remind your child that they can always rely on God!
Recipe to Make at Home:
Each week during this series we will be looking at a “recipe for our life” from God’s own recipe book, the Bible, and pairing it with a common food we often eat. This week we paired strawberries with the word RELY, so every time your child eats a strawberry, you can remind them that they can RELY on God!
Here are two simple, healthy strawberry recipes for you to try with your little chefs at home!
If you try them, let us know how they turned out and share some pictures of you and your child in your kitchen on our facebook page.
