Elementary Parent Connect: December 10

Dear Parents,

We are excited to partner with you as you guide your elementary students in their faith! Below, you will find details about the lesson we learned this week and a helpful activity to reinforce the lesson at home.

Bible Story: Angels Spoke to Mary and Joseph

In this Bible story, an angel visited Mary and Joseph. He explained to Mary that she was highly favored according to the Lord and that she would bear God’s son. He offered peace to Joseph, and told him that what she conceived was from the Holy Spirit. All of this was to fulfill prophecy.

Read more in Matthew 1:18-24; Luke 1:26-56.

Memory Verse: 1 John 4:9

“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him”

Home Activity: Gifts of Love

Today your child learned that God chose Mary and Joseph to be the earthly parents of Jesus. God has a purpose for all of us! Ask your child to name some of his or her favorite things to do. Perhaps your child loves to sing or make people laugh, dance or play football. Maybe your child loves to watch his younger siblings or the neighborhood kids, or your child might enjoy learning at school. However your child answers, help him or her brainstorm ways God could use that gift or hobby to share His love with others.
