Parent Connect | July 23, 2017

Parents, all summer long we’ve been telling our preschoolers about kids in the Bible who rock. Kids who did something special or amazing. Your kids rock too! What special things have you caught your preschooler doing? How have they grown this summer?  Physically, Verbally, Mentally, Emotionally and  Spiritually. Maybe they are learning to button their own clothes, answer questions with more words, or are beginning to distinguish “real” from “not real”.

In DV Preschool we begin to build their Biblical foundation. This means we tell relevant Bible stories each weekend and follow up with fun activities to enhance their learning or help them remember the story. Be sure to ask your preschooler each weekend, what Bible story they learned. You can use the coloring page or craft as a clue. 🙂 Thanks for letting us partner with you.

The Story

JOHN 6:1-13

Jesus uses a young boy’s lunch to perform a miracle and feed over 5000 people.

Parents, grab your child’s favorite Bible story book and blanket. Find a place outside and read together this week’s Bible story, Jesus feeds the 5000. a couple good follow up questions to use:  1. What do you think was special about what Jesus did? 2. What are some of your favorite foods that God provides for you?  Take time to pray together.  Prayer:  Dear God, your amazing miracles show us you can give us the food we need. Thank you for taking care of us and loving us. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
