This November In eKidz :: What We’re Learning

Gratitude: Letting others know you see how they’ve helped you.
Memory Verse:Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever.” Psalms 136:1

Gratitude sometimes feels like a lost art, yet gratitude is an idea close to God’s heart. Think about all of the Bible stories where people gave thanks to God. The Israelites celebrated God with feasts and festivals. The writers of the psalms wrote songs of praise to thank God for being faithful. 

Throughout this month, we hope kids will learn to be grateful for everything God has done: for the world God made, for the promises He has kept, and for the new life He offers the world through Jesus. When we remember all of these things, we can always be thankful.

We’re Learning… I can give thanks to God.
Bible Story: Ten Lepers ● Luke 17:11-19

This month we’re learning, “I can give thanks to God.” We’lll learn the story, “Ten Lepers,” in Luke 17:11-19. When Jesus healed 10 men, but only one went back to thank Him. We can always give thanks to God for who He is, everything He’s done for us, and all the wonderful things He’s given us!
