Parent Connect | June 4, 2017

Parents, Throughout the summer, our preschoolers will be introduced to people in the Bible who did amazing things while they were still kids. They rocked because they did what God wanted them to do, and our preschoolers can do that too. In June, we’ll hear the stories of Jesus in the temple, young Samuel learning to listen to God, and two stories of young David. We’ll learn how David was chosen to lead and be king when he was just a kid, and then how he was brave and defeated a giant with just a sling and a stone.

We’ve also included a “Do Good Challenge” for your preschoolers. They will be rockin’ at home as they do chores etc. around the house. Be sure to pick up this challenge chart in DV and remember to praise them when they’ve finished their challenges. Have fun! 🙂

The Story

Jesus teaches at the Temple     Luke 2:41-50

Jesus and his parents, Mary and Joseph traveled to Jerusalem for the Feast of Passover. At this time Jesus was only twelve years old. After the feast, everyone traveled home except for Jesus.  When his parents arrived to their home, they realized Jesus wasn’t there. They searched everywhere and then traveled back to Jerusalem to find him sitting with, and listening to the teachers at the temple. Jesus’ parents were surprised and not very happy. They didn’t understand why he stayed behind.  Jesus really wanted to learn about God.  On this day Jesus obeyed his parents and traveled home.

Parents, Even though it’s summer, be sure to take time out of your busy week and read a Bible story and pray with your preschoolers. We want each of them to treasure God’s word too.
