This month we will be learning about the connection between individuality and God’s character, as shown through God’s story. One the one hand, people all over the world are similar. On the other hand, each person is unique. Join us as we discover who we are meant to be.
Our memory verse this month is Psalm 139:14 - “How you made me is amazing and wonderful. I praise you for that. What you have done is wonderful. I know that very well.’” This verse will encourage us to remember that we are God’s creation, and that He has made us for a reason.
This week, we take a look at a parable Jesus told in Luke 15:1-17. In the story, Jesus talks about a shepherd who leaves 99 sheep behind to search for the one sheep that was lost. Jesus is the Good Shepherd who rescues us and makes it possible for us to have a forever relationship with God.
Bottom Line: God wants to have a relationship with me. When it comes to understanding individuality, it’s important we help kids understand that God created them to have a relationship with Him. We hope, through Jesus’ parable of the Lost Sheep, kids will start to understand God’s amazing love for them.
See you Thursday!
