For the next five weeks, we will be remembering what we learned in Bible School at the beginning of the summer. Have fun learning more about each story from your children; they are sometimes our greatest teachers!
Gathering Prayer: (Do this prayer repeat-after-me style)
Dear God, we thank you for keeping baby Moses safe so that he could go on to do amazing things in your name. Give us your power and protection. Amen.

Questions to Ponder:

- How can you be a helper to someone who does not feel safe?
Song: Pharaoh, Pharaoh
This is a song about Moses from later in his life, but we learned it to remind us that God was not only saving Moses from the water and unfair rules, but also for the purpose of setting God’s people free.

Closing Prayer: (Do this prayer repeat-after-me style)
God be in my head, and in my understanding.
God be in my eyes, and in my looking.
God be in my mouth, and in my speaking.
God be in my heart, and in my thinking.
God be at my end, and at my departing. Amen.
