Below are the scriptures and some questions discussed in DIG classes on 3/15.
Preschool-Jesus and Zaccheaus, Luke 19:1-10
*I wonder why no one liked Zaccheaus?
*I wonder what Zaccheaus thought when he first saw Jesus while in the tree?
*I wonder what others thought when Jesus went to Zaccheaus’ house?
At BeFree it is important that children are treated as full participating worshippers and allowed into all parts of the service, when appropriate. In order for Communion to be meaningful for children, we must explicitly teach them about its purpose and meaning (see my blog post for more on Communion , https://befreedig.wordpress.com/2015/02/09/communion-and-children/)
On Sunday, the elementary students participated in a lesson on Communion. We walked through Jesus’ Last Supper. Students discussed their own wonderings about Communion, and then reflected on it individually. Here is a list of their questions. You might want to discuss them at home:
*Why would they drink the blood?
*Why is it called “The Last Supper?”
*Why does Jesus have to die for us?
*How did it feel in the room during the Last Supper?
*What kinds of things do you think about during Communion?
Here is some other resources to use with kids to further explore Communion.
