Joseph (September 21-22)
We worship the God who speaks. This weekend in children's church, we will hear about Joseph. Ages 3-K will focus on the special robe Joseph's father gave him and Grades 1-5 will learn how Joseph’s brothers responded to their father’s gift to him.
When you sit at home: Ages 3-K read Genesis 37:3. Grades 1-2 read Genesis 37:3-11, 18-24, 27-28, 32-34. Grades 3-5 read Genesis 37:3-11, 18-24, 26-36. Joseph was 17-years-old. His father Jacob (also known as Israel) had twelve sons and at least one daughter. What do you think it would be like growing up in such a large family?
When you walk along the road: Joseph’s father gave him a special robe to show his love for him. What are some ways your family can show their love to each other?
Ages 4-K Whisper Verse: “Show your love.”
When you lie down: Pray this prayer each day this week: “Thank You, God for speaking to us through prayer, your Word, the Holy Spirit, creation, and in so many other ways. Help us to open to what You have for us. Amen.”
When you get up: Jacob gave Joseph a special robe to show his love. What could you give to show someone your love? Think of someone who is special to your family. Choose a gift which would show your family’s love for them. It may be baked cookies, a handmade greeting card, a hand-painted stone, handmade jewelry, a bookmark, or another special item.Deliver your gift with a note that says, “You are special.”
