Bible 

The Parable of the Lost Coin Read Luke 15:8-10

Jesus told a story about a woman who had ten silver coins. Each of the coins was worth about a whole day of work. The woman counted her coins, “One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine. Oh no! I have lost one of my coins,” she cried. Do you know what she did? She turned on every light in the house, swept the floor, and searched until she found the one lost coin. When she found the lost coin, she called all of her friends and neighbors together and said, “Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin. 

Jesus told this story to demonstrate God’s love for us. We are God’s children, but sometimes we get lost. When that happens, God doesn’t give up on us. He searches for us and he won’t stop until we are found. In fact, the Bible tells us that God sent his son, Jesus, to seek and save the lost. And just as the people in the story rejoiced when they found what was lost, Jesus said, “There is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

I’m glad that God loves us so much that he doesn’t give up on us when we get lost, aren’t you?

As a fun activity, have your mom/dad or friend hide a coin after you leave the room. When you come back play hot/cold until you find it. The Hotter it gets the closer you are to finding your lost coin. Remember to rejoice after finding it just like the woman who lost her coin!

We also know that family situations are changing on a daily basis. Please know we are here to partner with you so we can work through this together. We are hoping you find this helpful as we move forward.

Bible  

Read: Luke 8:4-15  Memory verse James 1:22 NIV “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” 

God’s Word, is the seed Jesus is telling us about.  Talk about the different types of people the seed might land on. Think about your friends, or neighbors, or family that you might tell about Jesus. Jesus ended the parable by saying He who has ears, let him hear (we have 2 ears!). Jesus wants everyone to listen to His words. But not everyone will do His will. Now think about yourself. Which soil have you been? Have you listened to God’s Word and let it grow in your heart? Remember this summer to practice and put into use the lessons we have learned this school year. Continue to read and learn from God’s Word so it can grow in your heart! 

Fun Activity: 

Materials needed: Potting soil, plant pots or styrofoam cups, Sharpie, lunch bags and forget me not seeds (or seeds on hand). Before putting dirt in the cup they can write Psalm 119:16b NASB “I shall not forget your Word.” on their cup. If you want to prepare a label for them to decorate with the verse on it they can color and paste the label on the cup. Another idea would be to have the students decorate a craft stick with the verse written on it to put in the plant pot.
