Elementary

Parents Connect | September 24, 2017

In Elementary this week, we will share some simple ideas to help your child learn how to react when their friends are in need.


The Story

We close out the month with something Paul said in 1 Thessalonians 5:11,  “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” When Job experienced trial after trial, his friends decided to help. They didn’t bring meals or tell jokes. Rather, they came along side and grieved with Job. Now, we find out they didn’t always get it right, but for that first week, they let Job know that they were there for him.

Bottom Line: Friends encourage one another. Kids might not always know what to say or do when it comes to helping cheer up their friends.  We pray they can discover that they can encourage each other even if it simply means being a shoulder to lean on.


This Month’s Memory Verse

Be sure to check out this month’s memory verse!  Get started now in helping your child learn the verse and have them say it for their small group leader on the weekend.


GodTime Card:

GodTime cards are available each month and are a tool to assist parents as they help their child have “God Time” each week. Here’s how:  There are four different devotions on each GodTime card. Each one is designed to be done on a different day. Click below to see this week’s GodTime card.

A Widget is a cool, concrete, take-home item for families to use.
