Monthly Focus: God Wants Me to Help
Bible Story: The Good Samaritan :: Luke 10:25-37
Weekend Activity: “Good Samaritan Bear” activity
This weekend your child met a new friend – Bernie the Bear! He had many boo-boos and needed your toddler helped him put band-aid’s on his boo-boos. Review how your child can help others by using one of their stuffed animals and pretend it has several boo-boos. Give your child several band aids and ask how he/she can help. For example, Bernie the Bear stubbed his toe, can you help put a band aid on his toe? Or, Bernie the Bear fell down and scraped his knee, what can you do to help Bernie? As you review the monthly focus, God wants me to help, talk with your child about how he/she can help others.
Main Point: Friends help others!
Bible Story: 2 Samuel 9:1-7, David and Mephibosheth
Lesson Overview: Agent O gave his spy helpers Pogo and Dot a special mission this past weekend in Quest. The doctor of Spy City wasn’t helping his sick friend Bernie feel better, so Pogo and Dot went to see him to share the Bible story about how David helped Mephibosheth. After the doctor heard the story about how David reached out to a poor man named Mephibosheth and gave him land that once belonged to his father, Saul, the doctor decided to help his sick friend Bernie.
