For the next three 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 your power to heal. Work your healing in us, in those we know and love, and for all who need your care. Amen.
Bible Story: 2 Kings 5:1-4, 10-14
Read about Naaman in a children’s Bible or online here:
Here is a video to show you the story:
Questions to Ponder:
- Tell about a time when you were hurt and needed healing.
- What did you do?
- Tell about a time when you did not believe something that you were told.
- How did you learn that it was true?
- How can you help someone who might not be nice to you?
Song: Peace Like a River
Since God healed Naaman in the Jordan River, and received the peace that only God can give, I thought this was the perfect song!
Activity: First Aid Kit
Since God worked healing in Naaman in this story, I thought it might be great to work together with my family to make a First Aid Kit for the car. That way, we can be God’s hands and feet of healing in the case of an emergency. There are some great ideas on how to do this here: http://myfrugaladventures.com/2015/04/diy-car-first-aid-kit-be-prepared-this-summer/
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.
