Extreme Sayings Series
Our kids served the church today by helping clean our toys!
Extreme Saying of the Week: “Be a Servant to All”
Lesson in a Word: Humility
Story: Jesus Washes the Disciple’s Feet (John 13:4-5 & 12-17)
Bible Verse: “Serve each other with humility.” 1 Peter 5:5
Prayer: Dear Jesus, thank you for making us all different. Help me to think of others and not just myself. Show me ways that I can put other’s needs above my own by doing simple acts of service for them. Help me not always want to be the first and best at everything, but to let others share the spotlight. Amen
Parents: Is there a friend in your life who is going through a rough time, is stressed or could just use an unexpected treat? Have your children help you bake some goodies and make cards, then deliver them together to your friend.
Toddlers: Play the “sharing game” with your child. Pick a favorite toy and say “It’s your turn!” and allow them to play for a moment, then say, “May I have a turn please?” and you play with it for a moment, giving lots of encouragement when they hand the toy over.
Age 3 – Kindergarten: Part of putting others first is noticing needs. To encourage that, play “Super Spies” this week! Tell your child/ren that they are going to be super spies and their job is to notice as many needs as possible. For every need that they notice, they get one point. For every need they notice and stop to help, they get two points. Play all day; at home, at school, at daycare, at the store, and tally the points at the end of the day. Older kids can even be given a Super Spy notebook to keep track of their list!
