We started a new unit a couple weeks ago in Bright Beginnings called Chemical Reactions.
We will be spending the next eight weeks mixing up some fun in our chemistry lab! We will learn about the characteristics from 2 Peter 1:5-7 that can help us be more like Christ. We’ll take time each week to put on our lab coats and learn about faith, goodness, knowledge, self-control, patience, service, kindness and love. When we add them up and mix them together we get the perfect formula for our character!
Here’s our take home information for Week 1:
Series Bible Verse: 2 Peter 1:5-7 “…add this to your life: faith, and to your faith, goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, patience; and to patience, service for God; and to service for God, kindness; and to kindness, love.
Character Element of the Week: Faith
Science Experiment: Blowing Up Balloons with Vinegar & Baking Soda
Story: The Captain’s Servant (Matthew 8:5-13)
Bible Verse: “…add this to your life: faith” 2 Peter 1:5a
Prayer: Dear Jesus, I want to believe in You. I am so glad that I can come to church and learn about You. Help me to trust You and the plans You have for my life. Amen
Parents: You are a model of Christ to your child. Children will learn to trust in Jesus by watching you. Talk with your child about Jesus. Share what He has done for you; how He keeps you safe, helps you sleep, or heals you.
Birth – Age 2: Children’s faith will grow the more they trust and know! As you and your children are riding in the car, getting dressed or looking out the window, take turns spotting things that God made.
Age 3 – Kindergarten: Play “Lead the Blind” game. Blindfold a family member. Another family member will give them verbal directions to get from one place to another. Do you have faith that you will be lead the right way and not bump into things?
