Bible Story: Elisha’s Room | 2 Kings 4:8-17
Main Point: I am thankful for people who give me what I need.
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, a woman helped Elisha by making a room for him to stay in when he visited.
Even though Elisha spent a lot of time traveling and couldn’t always take everything he needed with him, God still provided for him! God sent people to help Elisha get things he needed, like food and water. Elisha was so thankful for people who helped him get what he needed, and we can be thankful for people who help us, too!
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!
