Elementary Parent Connect: November 12

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: Jesus Forgives and Restores

In this Bible story, Jesus appeared to the disciples while they were fishing. Once the fish were caught, Jesus broke bread and shared the fish with them. In this moment, Jesus forgave Peter with one request, “Follow me!”  Read more in John 21:1-19.

Memory Verse: 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

“For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to Scriptures”

Home Activity: Grace Experiment

In today’s Bible story, Jesus showed Peter that His grace, or forgiveness, would cover anything that Peter could do wrong. That same forgiveness is available to us! Help your child understand this concept of forgiveness by doing this object lesson that uses water, iodine, and bleach. Set up one clear class labeled “You” with water, one clear glass labeled “Sin” with iodine, and one clear glass with water and bleach labeled “Jesus.” Watch the following video to see how to teach this lesson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Z_SMrnEiaI
