This Week…

We enter the second week of Advent and take time to think about the word “Peace”.

On the night of Jesus’s birth there were shepherds taking care of their sheep in a field nearby.  I’m sure the night was quiet and peaceful seemed like any other ordinary night.   Perhaps the shepherds looked up at the stars and enjoyed the way they twinkled and lit the sky.  Little did they know that this night was definitely not like any other night, and the sky would soon change in a way they never could have expected!  Their peace would be interrupted for a message about…..peace….  Watch this week’s video to hear the story!

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.
