This Week…

We are learning a new word: RECONCILIATION.  Have you heard that one before?  It means to restore a relationship.  Think of a time you had an argument with someone, then were able to forgive each other and become friends again.  THAT is reconciliation!  This week we are going to look at the best, most wonderful, most amazing example of reconciliation of all time!  The one between God and us!  Watch the video below to learn all about it!

Get up, sing and move along!

Challenge: Do a Puzzle

The biggest reconciliation ever is the one between God and us.  Our sin separated us from God, but out of love, God sent His Son to pay the price for our sins so that we could be forgiven and reunited with Him.  Because of this, we can have FRIENDSHIP with the God of the universe!

A jigsaw puzzle is a neat picture of reconciliation.  It once was a whole picture, then broken into many pieces.  We can put it back together to be a whole picture again!  Your challenge this week is to put together a puzzle.  As you’re doing it, think about God’s gift of reconciliation to us and say a prayer of thanks for His friendship.

Memory Verse Games and Activities

We’ve collected some fun games and activities to help with memorizing verses below.  You can even create your own activity pages!

  1. Erase a Word—Write the memory verse on a whiteboard. Erase the verse a word at a time, each time asking the children to say the verse.
  2. Write each word of the memory verse on a slip of paper. Children must place the slips in the correct order.  For an additional challenge, hide the papers around the room.  As children find them they can being to place them in the correct order.
  3. Write the first letter of each word of the memory verse on a whiteboard or piece of paper. Children then try to write the verse.
  4. Ping Pong—A child calls out the first phrase of a verse, then someone else calls back the second phrase, and so forth.
  5. Make a word search using all the words in the verse. (Easily create a word search you can print, play online, and share with friends here: Word Search Maker )
  6. Hot Potato—Sit on the floor across from each other or in a circle, depending on how many are playing. The first child says the first word of the verse and rolls a ball to anyone in the circle. The child receiving the ball says the second word of the verse and so on.
  7. Picture It—Have the children write the verse, drawing as many pictures for the words as possible.
  8. Double up with printing or cursive handwriting practice by creating templates of the verses for children to copy.  Worksheet Works has an easy generator that can create worksheets for any stage your child is at.
