Your child is made by God to do good things. Big things. Use your nightly cuddle time to pray over your child. Pray that God's plan will be fulfilled in your child's life. There is an example of a prayer on our Parent Cue for this week if you need help getting started. Our words as parents are so powerful, so pray big things over your child and watch God do big things!
A king that is only 8 years old? Sounds a little crazy, but it is totally true. A little boy named Josiah totally rocked for God. He lead the people and helped them do what God wanted them to do. Talk to your child about what they want to be when they "get bigger", and encourage them! Tell them that maybe they can be a great leader for God to one day. Let them dream big, and watch them Rock for God!
This week we learned of a young girl that totally ROCKED for God. In Exodus 1:22-2:10 we learn how Miriam watched her baby brother Moses after their mom puts him in a basket and hides him in on the bank of the river. She was a kid but she did a great thing!
Practice reviewing the bottom line and key question on the Parent Cue with your child:
"Who can do what God wants you to do?"
"I can do what God wants me to do!"
This week we continued our Kids Rock theme. We have enjoyed our special summer theme and we hope your kid has too! All summer long we are learning our Bible verse - Ephesians 2:10 - "God made us to do good works." We want our kids to know that even though they may be small they can do good works. Wake up your child this week to you saying; "Good morning! It is a new day to do good things!" Your Kid Rocks!
Every story this month has been taught to show your little one that God's Got It and that they can trust in him. In each story God protected His people, directed their way, and showed them great love. During your prayer time thank God for being such a Good Good Father. God is protecting and loving your child and He has got it all under control.
This week we learned about a man named Gideon. Gideon was the leader of an army. Gideon and his army were about to go into battle and God told him to do something silly. He didn't want Gideon to use his weapons. God wanted Gideon to use jars, and trumpets, and torches. That is silly but guess what? The army won! Re-tell this story to your child, Make sure they understand that even when they think something is silly or hard that they do not have to worry because God's Got It! God showed Gideon the way and He will always show us the way too! Who's Got It? God's Got It!
This month's theme “Come to the Castle” is based on and inspired by Chris Tomlin’s new book, “Good, Good Father”. We will be reading this book to your child in the classroom.
We can’t wait for you and your little one to experience what we have planned for this month! Stop by our photo area and don't forget to get your Parent Cue from your child's room Leader. “Come to the Castle” is a great theme, and each story this month will teach your child that, God our King, is a good, good father.
