Theme: Show God love by singing praises!
“How good to sing praises to our God! How delightful and how fitting!” (Psalm 147:1)
Scripture Memory: Review Psalm 100:1-3 by jumping! Jump up and down while you’re saying the verses together…the hope is that you’ll get out some wiggles before sitting down to read!
Catechism Review: Q. How can you glorify God? A. By loving him and doing what he commands.
Focus on Worship: Ask your children what the word “praise” means. If they don’t know, give them each a compliment (“Catelyn, you are so good at helping me in the kitchen! Elena, you have a beautiful smile.) Explain that the good things you just said about them is praise! When we praise God, we say or sing good things about Him. Then read Psalm 147:1-7 together and point out the good things the Psalmist sings about God.
Do your children have any favorite praise songs? As part of our Kindergarten curriculum, we’re learning a hymn each month. We’ll sing that, accompanying ourselves with instruments and then sing any other praise songs my kids happen to know.
