Word of the Week:  FEED

Recipe We Made in Class:  Soft Pretzels with Salt

Bible Verse:  “Feed the hungry and help others.”  Isaiah 58:10

Story:  Salt of the Earth  (Matthew 5:13)

Prayer: Dear God, Thank You for all the You have done for me.  Help me to show Your ways to others around me.  Show me how I can make a difference to help others.  Help me to find someone who needs “joy seasoning” in their life and encourage them with my words.  I want to be able to feed others the way that You have fed me with Your love.  Amen



“Take-It-Home” Activities:

Parents:  The next time you order food at a drive-through, pay for the car behind you.  You’ll be living out this week’s lesson for your child!

Birth – Age 2:  A servant’s heart starts at home; encourage your child to help with simple tasks around the house such as pulling the clothes out of the dryer, putting their shoes away, throwing away a piece of trash, bringing their plate to the sink…any simple task!  When they do thank them for their help.

Age 3 – Kindergarten:  There are many “kid-friendly” opportunities through the compassionate ministries at our church for your family to serve together.  Discuss your options as a family and pick one to do this week!  If you need help finding a good fit for your family contact Terry Williams (terrywilliams@jaxnaz.com) and he will be glad to help you.

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 salt with the word FEED every time your child eats something salty, you can remind them that God wants us to be kind and share what we have with others! 

Try out this simple soft pretzel recipe this week.  It’s quick and simple and your children will love making different shapes and letters with the dough!


We’d love to see pictures of you and your child in your kitchen on our facebook page.

Happy Baking!
