Read + Respond
Read Along With Us!
We are working on a chronological reading of The Jesus Storybook Bible. This week read “God’s wonderful surprise” and remind your children of God’s big love for us. Read the scripture from today’s sermon, Psalm 6. Connect the reading to the story by discussing the sadness at the beginning of the Psalm and the story to how God’s big love rescues us and brings salvation.
RESPONSE THROUGH ART
Gather Items from around the house that could be used to build a “raft’ of some sort. This could include couch cushions, blankets, mats, or even an actual raft! Have some favorite stuffed animals or other treasures nearby and let your children act out using the raft to “save’ the items from a raging river, ocean waves, or a runaway train. The more imagination the better! Afterward talk with your children about the raft as a symbol of God’s big rescuing love.
