Word of the Week: RECOGNIZE
Recipe We Made in Class: S’Mores!
Bible Verse: “My people know and follow me.” John 10:27
Story: Jesus and the Disciples (John 21:1-14)
Prayer: Dear Jesus, I am glad that You love me no matter what. Help me to always recognize Your ways so that I can make good decisions. Just as sheep follow their shepherd, give me a desire to want to follow you. I want to give my heart to You and follow You every day. Amen
Parents: You can recognize your child’s voice, laughter, cry (even cough!) because you know them so well. God wants you to know Him even more intimately than you know your child! Spend some time this week in prayer asking God to reveal Himself to you.
Birth – Age 2: As you are riding in the car this week, play children’s Christian music about God’s love for your child. The Bible tells us children can sense the Holy Spirit, even in the womb, so it’s never too early to help your children recognize His presence!
Age 3 – Kindergarten: Look at some baby pictures together as a family. Do you recognize each person as a baby? Talk about how even though we can’t see God, we can recognize Him!
Oh my! We had fun, but we will not be making S’Mores in the Garden for a very long time ever again. And we apologize for sending our Backyard friends out the door second service with an ooey-gooey, super sugary, sticky messy snack right before lunch! Sometimes the hour just doesn’t go quite as planned. Sometimes you don’t know until you try it. Thanks for understanding!
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 marshmallows with the word RECOGNIZE, so every time your child eats a marshmallow, you can remind them that God wants us to know Him so well that we’d recognize Him anywhere!
Try out this awesome marshmallow paint recipe this week!

We’d love to see pictures of you and your child in your kitchen (or of their marshmallow paint masterpieces!) on our facebook page.
Happy Cooking (and painting)!
