Key Verse: “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us”

(Romans 5:8)

Our hope is for our kids to know that: Jesus wants us to follow his example serving others.

(Open the bible and read to your child John 13:1-17) It was the Last Supper and Jesus and the disciples were preparing to eat a meal. In those days it was customary for a servant to wash the feet of everyone before eating, however since this was a private party there was no one who wanted to lower themselves below the other. This is when Jesus took action and became the servant. Jesus taught us to humble ourselves and serve one another.  

(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents: Talk about a time you served someone when you were young. Explain what you did and what effect it had on the people you served. For example, maybe you went on a mission trip and helped repair a home, or maybe you mowed the next-door neighbor’s lawn for free. Then talk about ways your family can serve the people around you. Challenge your family to add one new act of service this week. It could be as simple as opening the door for others when entering a building. At the end of each day, check in with your family; talk about how everyone served others as Jesus did.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
As a family spend time this week listing specific chores of each family member. Write what the task is, when it normally needs to be done, and what the job requires. Then write each family member’s name on a separate slip of paper, fold the paper slips, and put them in the container. Take turns drawing a name. When a family member draws a name, he or she will take over that person’s chores for an entire week, giving each family member a break from his or her chores. What better way to exemplify Jesus’ teaching than by beginning in your very own home.
