THANKS!A 4-WEEK SERIES ON THE WILDERNESS
SERIES OVERVIEW:“Thank you.” It’s one of the first phrases most of us learn to say, but it’s also one of the most difficult things to say and really mean! That’s true for us today, but it was true for God’s people in the Old Testament too. After they escaped the land of Egypt, the Israelites spent forty years wandering through the wilderness on their way to the promised land. While they wandered, they struggled to remember all of the ways God had provided for them (kind of like we still do today). In this 4-week series, kids will discover that we can thank God for so much — for providing for us, for being God, for giving us wisdom, and for never giving up on us.
WEEK 1This week, kids will learn the story of God giving manna and quail in the desert.
WEEK 2This week, kids will learn about the Ten Commandments Part 1.
WEEK 3This week, kids will learn about the Ten Commandments Part 2.
WEEK 4This week, kids will learn the story of the golden calf.
Research shows that kids laugh an average of 300 times a day. The average adult? Only four times a day. If you want to connect more with kids and have more joy and gratitude, look for opportunities to laugh with your kids. Share a funny story from your childhood, a knock-knock joke they might love or have a tickle match. It doesn't take much to get them rolling, so sneak some laughs in with them!
It can be hard for kids to have a selfless, grateful heart that thinks of others first, especially in a “me-first” world. We love this Thankful Journal that encourages kids to write down things every day that they are thankful for.
