Toddlers-How Peter Served Jesus

61dj2l-OumL._SX392_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

This month the toddlers are exploring stories of Peter’s ministry from Acts.  Some possible activities:

*Reread stories about Peter the apostle.  Stories of his earlier life are in Jesus Storybook Bible, or Jesus Calling Bible.

*Retell the story of Peter healing the leper from Acts in your own words.  Use your child’s toys to be different characters in the story and have them help you retell the story with the figurines.

Preschool-The Great Pearl, Matthew 13:45-46

Preschoolers are spending June and July exploring Parables.

*I wonder what could be so great that the merchant would exchange everything he had for the Great Pearl?

I wonder what the Great Pearl could really be?

*I wonder how the merchant feels now that he has the Great Pearl

Even if you don’t have a preschooler, summer is great time to dive into a thematic bible study as a family, so join us!  Here are some resources to use while exploring Jesus’ parables:

Favorite Parables from the Bible by Nick Butterworth and Mick Inkpen

This book retells many of Jesus’ parables, and children will find the illustrations very humorous.  We are using this book in the preschool classes to retell the weekly lessons.
