Opening Prayer

Lord, You show us how to live

How to love and to forgive

Guide us through the day and night

To follow in Your holy light


From "My First Prayers" by Autumn Publishing


This Week's Memory Verse - John 3:16

"For God SO loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."

I always learn scripture better when I can put music to it. If that sounds like you, too, you can use this music video to help you remember this all-important verse about God's love and His son's sacrifice for us!

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8), and because He is steadfast, who we are in Him remains the same regardless of circumstances. These statements remind us whose we are and who we are Because of who Jesus is.

Speak these statements together as a family.

Big picture


Lord, help me be a friend to the lonely and the shy

Help me give a helping hand instead of walking by

Help me always be a friend and say there's nothing to fear

Help me always be a friend and show Your love is near.
