HCOC Children's Church

September Week 5

All You Need is Love ~ God's Greatest Commandment

Today children learned that Jesus wants us to love everyone, even those who are mean to us.

Don't let the learning stop at church!

This week we are asking parents to do two things:
  • Go over the Bible verse with your child: Matthew 22:40 "All of the law and the writings of the prophets take their meaning from these two commands." Then ask, "And what are these two commands? Love God and love others!" Each time you recite the verse, you will add this question to the end so that they can also memorize the two commands but without having to memorize the entire paragraph.
  • Ask your child if there is another child they sometimes have problems with at school, daycare, etc. Discuss ways that they can show kindness to that person and then pray for him/her together.
