Bible Story: Nehemiah Builds A Wall | Nehemiah 1-6
Main Point: I am thankful for my community.
Memory Verse: “Always give thanks to God.” Ephesians 5:20 (NIV)
This month we’re helping children learn to say thank you for the people who help them. And there are a lot of people who help children!
Family, community helpers, people who give them what they need, and last but not least—friends. Children need help, tons and tons of help. And, we want them to grow up with eyes that see the people who help them, and a heart that says thanks.
In this week’s lesson, God’s people came together to help Nehemiah repair the city’s wall.
Nehemiah didn’t try to rebuild the walls by himself. He asked other families in the community to help him and they all worked together! God knows when we need help, too, and He gives us people in our communities to help us.
Each weekend children visit Wonder! Clubhouse they get collectible cards to add to their poster. Once your child collects six cards and brings their poster back to Quest they can receive a special prize! Make sure your child keeps their poster in a place they can see it every day to help them remember what we are learning in Quest and to spend time with Jesus.
Join us in helping your child learning Ephesians 5:20 (NIV)! Children can recite the verse every week in October to earn a special Memory Verse take home to put on their poster.
Always (spread arms wide)
give thanks (hand to chin)
to God. (point up)
Ephesians 5:20, NIV (open hands like a book)
This month we’re learning to be thankful for all the people who help us. Our verse tells us to give thanks to God. God gives us great helpers, so we should make sure He knows we are thankful for them and for His help, too! Practice this verse with your child so they can recite it to their eGroup Leader this weekend in Quest!
