Take-It Home Activities:
Parents: Take some time this week to write a letter to God telling Him why you love Him.
Birth – Age 2: Talk about Jesus with your children! Weave His love into as many conversations as you can with your child. Tell them Jesus keeps them safe when they are anxious, that He helps them sleep when they are having a hard time at bedtime, that He heals their body when they get hurt or are sick, that He provides food when you are eating, that He is always with them, etc. A relationship with God comes naturally when you bring God into the daily lives of your children!
Age 3 – Kindergarten: Your children had an opportunity to pray a salvation prayer today. Ask your child about this! Make a cross with your child this week out of some craft sticks or play dough and take a moment to remember how God showed His love for us on the cross.
Special THANK YOU to all our volunteers who made the first week of Summer Serve a success!
