Thursday/Friday: God made you for a purpose and will always love you.
Our kids will memorize the verse from Psalm 89: "Your unfailing love will last forever.”
This is the time to teach kids about God’s never failing forgiveness. Even when we think we have done something unforgivable, Jesus came to die in our place and be raised to life, so that we might know that God wants us to live as forgiven people, not to die as sinners. Jesus wants to be our friend and teacher, even when we make mistakes. Jesus wants our kids to know about the forgiveness available to them now, and he wants them to be included in our challenge to love one another.
Friday’s theme will build on this with the final message: God made you for a reason.
Abbee the Bee will share the final verse: For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Remind our kids that they don’t have to wait until they grow up to begin living for Jesus, they can do it right now. Helping others, loving our neighbors, asking for forgiveness and giving out forgiveness, these are all things they can do now. God trusts us to do the work, let’s trust in God!
Thank you for sharing your week with these kids! Remember God has made you for a purpose, too! Join us for worship on Sunday at 10:30am and help us tell the rest of our congregation about what we’ve learned this week. May God use this week to do a “good work” in your heart, too!
Grace and Peace,
