We’ve noticed that kids are extremely generous!

Bible Story Focus: Jesus has power over everything
Memory Verse: “With God all things are possible” Matt. 19:26
READ: Use a children’s bible, or online app like the Bible App for Kids or YouVersion to read the story. What did you or your preschooler notice about the story?

K – Grade 4:
Summary: This month we’re focusing on Creativity.
Bible Story: Parting Words – 2 Samuel 23:1-2
Bible Story Focus: Use your imagination to do what you were made to do.
Memory Verse: “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10
READ: Read the story with your child. If they’re younger (K – Gr. 2), use a children’s bible, 3 – 4’s can use a more age appropriate Bible, like one you would get at church. In these few verses, we read a brief summary of what David was made to do. David made songs, prayers, and lived close to God.
DO: This week we’re talking about how God created each of us to give to His Kingdom. Not just with money, but with who He’s created us to be. Ask your child about what they think God made them to do. You can speak into this too. Pray together and thank God for making them the way He did.
MAKE: Write or a draw a picture of those characteristics that you identified previously. Put them in a picture frame in their room to be a reminder of how God made them to love others.
