Whether or not your children were able to make it to Sunday school, you can still engage them in this week’s story. Please read the summary, look up the story online, in your bible, or a children’s bible, and begin the discussion. Increasing your child’s biblical knowledge will be foundational in their faith development. What a gift to provide a child! Adults also reap the benefit of digging in deeper to these stories.
Amazing Grace & The Fourth Sunday in Lent
In our 3rd – 5th grade classroom, the children talked about what it is like to earn things. (rewards for good grades, places on teams, money for doing chores)
Unfortunately, children already tie their sense of self-worth to what they have earned and they observe this in the adult world too. It is a challenge for Christians of all ages to accept God’s grace as an unearned, unmerited gift of enduring acceptance, love and mercy. Grace is God’s loving mercy for us, no matter what.
