Birth - Kindergarten

Basic Truth: God made me.
Key Question: Who can help you?
Bottom Line: God made people who help me!
Memory Verse: “Be kind and loving to each other." - Ephesians 4:32 (NCV)

This week's Bible story can be found in Ruth 2:1-23.  Ruth and Naomi are hungry so Ruth goes to the fields to pick barley. She works in Boaz’s fields, and he helps her by making sure she has enough to eat.  Meal time is a great time to show your child what a big helper he can be. Ask your child to help you set the table and prepare the food. Each time he completes a task tell him, “I’m so glad God made you to help me.” Once the table is set and you are ready to eat, make notice of what you have done together. Praise your child for a job well done. “God made us to help each other and you were a BIG help!”

Virtue: Responsibility - Showing that you can be trusted with what is expected of you.
Memory Verse: “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much." - Luke 16:10a (NIV)
Bible Story: The parable of the talents (Matthew 25:14-29).
Bottom Line: What in the world are you doing to use what God gave you?

This week we are asking the question: “What in the world are you doing to use what God has given you?” Remember the story Jesus told about the parable of the talents? The servants are all supposed to use the talents that their master gave them to make a difference. In the same way, we are called to use what God has given us to make a difference. There’s an important principle at the end of this story. Jesus ends the parable by saying that if you are faithful in little, you will be faithful in much. This week, we want to teach kids how to be responsible even with the small things God has given them so they can be trusted to be responsible with much more down the road.
