As we go forward, it is our hope and prayer that your children will be able to share in front of the congregation at the end of this quarter what they have learned in class. Therefore, we are asking you, the parent, to help in that endeavor.
You ask: What can I do to help?
Tack this on the refrigerator and when you think about it, help us reinforce the following during this coming week.
- Ask them to tell the story in their own words. (Maybe while driving home from church). I Kings 19, Elijah runs from Jezebel.
2. Pray the Lord’s Prayer with them once a day (maybe at bedtime or at a mealtime).
3. Ask them to sing to you each day the first 10 books of the New Testament. (“Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, Acts, and the letter to the Romans, First and Second Corinthians, Galatians, and Ephesians”) They know the tune.
4. Each day ask them to tell you the first and second commandments: (You shall have no other god before me. You shall not make for yourself an Idol.)
Each week we hope to build on these. There are only 3 ways to learn: repetition, repetition, repetition. So let’s pour God’s word into their hearts and heads. Their future depends on it.
Thank you for your help and participation, Chuck, Carolyn, and Maddie
