Theme: Show God love by telling others about Him
“I will speak of your statutes before kings and will not be put to shame, for I delight in your commands because I love them.” (Psalm 119:46-47)
Scripture Memory: Review Psalm 100:1-3
Catechism Review: Q. How can you glorify God? A. By loving him and doing what he commands.
On Mission: Read Psalm 145:3-12. What kinds of things does the Psalmist say we should tell others about?
My goal for my children at this age (5 & 3) is not to necessarily be out witnessing! Instead, I want to give them a vision for talking about God and then model that for them. To help with the former goal, we’ll read a biography geared for young children about a Christian hero. I’d recommend the Heroes for Young Readers series published by YWAM or Hero Tales by Dave and Neta Jackson. You can also download a pdf book, On African Roads from WMU. Another fun resource is the Kids on Mission site from the Southern Baptist Mission Board. They’ve got great videos geared towards kids on mission related topics. Finally, check out Wycliffe’s Bright Ideas PreK and elementary curriculum to find some other fun ideas.
Once you’ve determined which resource to use, then read a book together or watch a video and discuss how the missionary’s love for God motivated them to tell their friends about Jesus and what He’s done for us.
