Enjoy a new lesson each week to help you teach God's word to your children.

Here is the fourth lesson for the month of November. Below you will find a recap of the lesson, and this week's memory verse. You will find the full lesson within the attached documents.

Looking After God's Gifts

Memory Verse: "There were no needy persons among them" (Acts 4:34, NIV)

Lesson: God wants His people to give their very best to help others in need.

***Think about a time when you shared something special with someone else or a time you did something for someone in need.***

Think about it: Make a plan to share the love of Christ by helping, listening, encouraging, and giving to someone who may not usually hear about Christ.

How you can share the good news! Have you told someone about Jesus today? What did you share with friends and family? Continue to share the good news about Jesus. Most people are home during this pandemic and this is a good time to reach out to as many family and friends.

Have a blessed week.

ROH Children’s Ministry


As believers, because we can be confident in the promises of God even in the midst of suffering, we do not have to respond from a place of fear. We are free to demonstrate God’s love for us, by loving others. Ministering to people’s physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs continues to be our response.

Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. (ESV)- Romans 12:15

When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” He said to him a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.” He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” and he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep. (ESV) – John 21:15–17

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. (ESV)- James 1:12

Ask yourself, am I responding in a Christian way?

Continue to keep each other lifted in Prayer and stay Encouraged !!!
