The Lost Coin/The Great Banquet (July 4-5)

The Lost Coin/The Great Banquet (July 4-5)

This week, ages 3-5 are learning Jesus’ parable, “The Lost Coin” (Luke 15:8-10). We will learn heaven rejoices over each of us. Grades 1-5 are learning Jesus’ parable, “The Great Banquet” (Luke 14:15-24). We will learn we need to respond to Jesus’ invitation.

When you sit at home:  Read the parable for your child's age group. A parable is a story that teaches a lesson. Jesus used parables to teach people about God’s kingdom. What is the lesson Jesus wants us to learn from this parable?

When you walk along the road: What have you learned about Jesus and His kingdom from the parables you have heard?

When you lie down: Pray this prayer each day this week: “Lord,thank You that I am Your special treasure. Thank You for inviting me to be with You in heaven for eternity. Amen.”

When you get up: What does it mean to “follow Jesus”? Have you accepted Jesus’ invitation to follow Him?

If you or your child would like to know more about how to receive eternal life, use the Children’s Guide for New Believers (downloadable here) for further discussion and prayer.
