Spread the word! Yak Pak goes digital! You can also pick up a hard copy at Valley Church this weekend.

Monthly Theme – God sent Jesus to save us

Key Verse:“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”
(John 3:16)

Our hope is for our kids to believe that: God knows our heart

Read:
(Open the bible and read to your child Mark 12:41-44) Jesus was in the temple and saw many people with great wealth give tons and tons of money to the church. Many things can be done with the money that the people gave. However, Jesus witnessed a widow who had only two coins. This was the only money she had to live on, but she loved Jesus so much that she gave everything she had. Jesus announced that she had given much more than anyone else. All of the rich people could afford to give what they gave, but this widow could not. We might think Jesus is asking us to give all of our money and possessions to him, but this is not the case. God knows our heart, and when we believe and trust in him, he is happy.

Share:
(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents: Share a time you gave something to God. Talk about how you felt before, during, and after you gave your gift. Then think about what time, talents, or resources you have as a family that your church or people around you could benefit from. Help each person in your family come up with the best gift to give to God, and encourage everyone to follow through by giving that gift this week.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
This week spend time with your child(ren) making a special card for his or her Sunday morning teacher. Have your child use white paper and paint pens. At the top of the page, help your child write, “Thanks for giving your best to God and to me!” Then have your child draw a picture of himself or herself. Your child could trace coins around the border of the picture and use silver or gold paints to decorate the coins.
