All your children did very well Sunday. I'm hoping they showed you the
bookmark they brought home. They can use the side with the artwork to
tell you the story of the fiery furnace. You should encourage them to do
that and see how well they do. The other side has three commitments on
it. I don't know how the other teachers did this in their class...I had
the youngest children. I gave each one an opportunity to make a
commitment. I read each choice to them and asked which they would like
to do. They all chose at least 1. Please find out which they did and
encourage them to try to keep their commitment. If the bookmark has been
misplaced, here are the choices:
1. Practice memorizing this lesson's verse: Do not be afraid, for I am
with you. (Isaiah 43:5a). We will be using this same verse next Sunday.
2. Practice Stop and Think prayer three times this week. Close your
eyes, breathe. Stop and think about what you want to talk to God about.
Then talk to God about what is on your mind.
3. Answer the question: What are some ways that I can remind others that
God is with them? Write out two ways you could do this throughout the week.
Thank you so much!
