Monthly Big Idea:

Jesus wants to be my friend forever!

Monthly Memory Verse:

"Go and make disciples of all nations." Matthew 28:19 NIV

This Week’s Big Idea:

God helps me tell others about Jesus.

This Week’s Bible Passage:

Peter Put In Jail • Acts 12:1-17

Bath Time Activity

Play a whisper game during bath time. Everything you say has to be in a whisper. Pretend you’re being very quiet like Peter was when he followed the angel out of jail. “Shh … you don’t want to wake up the jailer!” But once bath time is over, make all of the noise you want! “You’re free!”

Elementary: Ages 6-12

Monthly Virtue:

Peace—proving you care more about each other than winning an argument.

Monthly Memory Verse:

"So let us do all we can to live in peace. And let us work hard to build each other up." Romans 14:19, NIrV

This Week’s Big Idea:

Prove you care about others by letting go of "what's fair."

This Week’s Bible Passage:

Let It Go (Esau makes peace with Jacob) • Genesis 27:41-45; 31:3, 32:1-21; 33:1-11

Home Chatter

This week ask your son or daughter …  Which of your friends would encourage you to choose peace instead of getting even? How can we, as a family, create an atmosphere of peace instead of fighting?
