Come this weekend and learn how a woman in the Bible saved her family by keeping two spies safe.

The Story    Rahab and The Spies  Joshua 2:1-22; 6:1-25

This weekend the preschoolers will meet a woman from the Bible, Rahab. We will learn how Rahab trusted God and kept two spies safe. The story focus is “When God is with me, I can be courageous.” Because God was with her, Rahab had the courage to keep Joshua’s spies safe and therefore saved her family from harm.

Parents, Take time pretending to be a spy with your preschooler this week. (Mask are always fun to wear when being a spy)  Tip- toe around the house looking for specific objects or family members. Maybe the item you look for is your child’s favorite Bible storybook. After finding the Bible storybook, read-aloud this special story about Rahab. Then talk with your child about being courageous and pray together. Have fun!

This Month’s Memory Verse

Be strong (right hand in fist held up in front of self) and courageous (Left hand in fist held up crossed over right).  Do not (both hands press out like STOP) be afraid (hands up by face and pretend to be scared).  For the LORD (point up with right arm) your God (point up with left arm) goes with you (both hand on hips with strong super pose).  Deuteronomy 31:6 (hold hands open like a book)
