This weekend, we shared the story of Rahab and the Spies with our preschoolers. You can help reenact this story at home with your preschoolers. Here is what you will need:
- A Children’s Bible, turned to Joshua 2:1-22; 6:1-25
- This weekend’s take-home craft (Our two-year-olds made “binoculars” out of construction paper. Our three, four, and five years created “spyglasses” out of paper plates and popsicle sticks.)
- A red strip of cloth
As you read the passages about the spies entering the city, ask your child to use their spyglass or binoculars and pretend to be spies. Ask them to search the room for the place that they should hide. When they find the red cloth, remind them that God kept the spies safe. Finish your story time by repeating this month’s bottom line: We can always count on God, just like the spies did!
Initiative is seeing what needs to be done and doing it. Have you finished a “job” lately that was tough or you’re proud of? 1. Thank God for His help with the job. 2. Tell someone about it! Read together: Nehemiah 6:15-16; 8:1-3a, 17b
This weekend we’re grappling with the question, “What if I’m the Only One Saying No?”
Together read Psalm 25:1-5 or Daniel 6:1-28
Encourage your Club 45er that even if they’re afraid, God can give them the courage to stand up for their faith. Remind them that when we focus on God’s opinion alone, we won’t need to worry about other people’s opinions when we have to make a tough choice.
