Elementary Parent Connect: June 25

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: The Good Samaritan

Jesus told the story of the good Samaritan to help people understand that anyone who needs help is our neighbor. Jesus doesn’t want us to only love some people but to love all people. Jesus calls us to love others as He loved us.

Read more in Luke 10:25-37.

Memory Verse: Mark 6:34

“He had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.”

Home Activity: Help Someone in Need

As a family, plan a day to help someone in need. Bake cookies for a lonely neighbor, cut someone’s grass, volunteer at a homeless shelter, or check out 12stone.com/local for local mission opportunities. As you are planning, remind your child that we show God’s love for the world by loving others.
